    This is very good. It looks like you used window light, from the looks of the catchlights in her eyes.

    Love me some Macro lenses :p Ok I'm obsessed with macro lenses...

    Lighting looks great and the subject is having fun (makes for wonderful images) , A bit of work on framing and you will be doing well :)

    Thanks, the light was coming through the halls window.

    Thanks, I guess I was a bit to close for the framing, just cutting off the ear and left side of the face.

    I like it. You are allowed to cut bits off in portraiture - there's no rules :)
    You mention that it's your first REAL picture - is this opposed to some ARTIFICIAL pictures? [just joking]

    Lovely work! Is this an auto focus lens?

    Is the AF fast? The AF on my Sigma is slow and clunky!

    Its not bad, a little noisy but would not say clunky, and it has a limit switch on for the AF so it can shorten the travel of the focus for macro.
