    I hope I control the focus as well as you very soon. You are very precise and good at it! Beautiful, as usual.

    Indeed, the girls should get 95% of the credit for her expression and style !

    As for the 50mm Summilux, too early to make an assesment. But I will in a few weeks, and it seems I like it each day more …

    You did work out the colours so fine. For me the reduced colours and the strong red are key, and of course lady lens and photographer need to be in place…
