Nice close up yawn, though a shame there isn't more detail on Akins face, I think f4 was a bit to shallow here. If I'm being really picky, would have preferred it to be a little more straight too;)

Yeah.. I saw him do it once but the lighting was really poor. It's actually taken at -1.0EV and brought back to get the shutter-speed I needed to catch it, so I couldn't really change much about the settings, so the plan was just to get his muzzle and teeth in focus instead. It's just a shame he gave me a good shot opportunity I guess.
Haha really? It looks fairly straight to me?
