    Very nice style Mike. The only thing I would have liked to see was the butterfly with less "out of focus". I understand the depth of field you was shooting with but moving a couple of stops when needed would have worked better for me. I suppose the title says it all really.

    Having said that, it's still a very nice video with beautiful images.

    Glad to see you back Mike. Great shots, nicely edited together. Much, much better than most of the DSLR stuff out there.

    I must admit that, at the moment, I'm Cannoned-out. The 5d and 7d are everywhere and you can't find a youtube video without an out-of-focus background. My problem is that most of them are crap. There's a saying that you can't polish a turd and a lot of stuff shot with the Canons is sh*t. Just because there's a shallow depth-of-field, doesn't make it good. A lot of people think that buying a DSLR means that their videos will automatically look like "proper" movies.

    Okay, back to your video. I liked the aesthetic a lot, it suited the model really well. She has an unusual look which you exploited with the post-production and it works. Some of the shots seemed a little bit dark for my taste but it's probably due to the Vimeo compression. I suspect that, on the original footage, the shadow detail was there. Like Midnight, I felt that the depth of field was too shallow a couple of times but that's just my personal opinion having seen far too much out-of-focus crap in the last year.

    All in all Mike, your standard is still very high and it's always a pleasure to see your images.
