Photo of the Day: Sadie
All in all, a great shot; though I can't help but imagine how much better yet it would be with a better camera. I find myself, more and more, pushing the limits of my Canon 350D (Rebel XSi), especially in terms of its ability to capture images in low light. I compensate by using great light-gathering lenses with wide apertures, but that leaves the depth of field, as in this photo, more shallow than I'd like; and I use high ISOs, which increases noise in the image. I can only imagine this photo with, say, a Canon 5D, with the same 85mm prime lens, but at 6400 ISO rather than 1600, and an aperture of f/7.2 instead of f/1.8. That would make the difference between a great photo, and one of my best.
