Christmas lights portrait with FA 77mm
Lens: FA 77mm Limited Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Québec 
Posted By: bdery, 12-19-2016, 07:47 AM

A portrait shot with available light (I'm doing more and more of that now that I have the flashless K-1). Lens used was the FA 77mm Limited. I acquired this lens at a fair price, thinking I'd play with it a bit and resell it at the same price or better, but it's growing on me and now I don't think I'll sell it.

Anyway, here's the portrait. Enjoy, and feel free to comment!

That is a "WOW" in my books!
Always love to see the lights giving such beautiful Bokeh with a similarly beautiful subject !

Fine shot with a fine lens, I think you'd miss it if did sell it.

Thanks also! The lights certainly bring character to the image. It's nice when an out-of-focus area can still give context
