ISO 800
f/3.5

Shooting mode: manual
Metering mode: pattern

Matthew shot this image by using his back button to focus on my left eye as he prefers back button focusing. The compression of this lens is BEAUTIFUL and the amazing depth of field was a combination of the aperture and the fact that the background hillside was 200-300 yards behind us.

Below is the original and edited versions. Color and light adjustments were accomplished in Lightroom, slight skin softening in Photoshop.
