pretty pretty face

today is 'raksha bandhan' - "The festival is marked by the tying of a rakhi, or holy thread, by the sister on the wrist of her brother. The brother in return offers a gift to his sister and vows to look after her .. " - from the wiki page.

since it's a day where the sisters have all the rights to hog the limelight, here's a pic of my cousin sis, mamta bhatia. looking very pretty pretty :)

im still grappling with achieving sharp focus with the 50mm opened fully wide. most often i end up missing the focus while using auto focus, or i end up shaking just a wee bit, but enough to lose the sharpness. but i think the soft blur works for this one.

Lovely smile on this pretty girl. Regardless of the focus problem, looks good. Paul
