As you know, I like taking portraits, especially when they turn out like this. What makes a portrait like this work is the eyes - they have to be exactly in focus. The shot is taken at f/2.8 so that everything except the focal point (the eyes) is soft, which is exactly what I wanted in this shot. The need for the focal point be be exactly in focus is is why a few weeks ago when I was buying a new camera, the issue of having no backfocus was so crucial.
