Excellent! Those obsessed with lenses often claim their reason to pick the f/2.8L over the f/4L is the shallow depth-of-field. They don't have a clue on how to use their equipment properly...

Thanks Chris! When I shot the photo I used the shade setting for white balance, which has an effect similar to a warming filter. Although that wasn't intentional, I also like how it turned out. Didn't do any post processing other that to scale it to a reasonable size and then sharpen after that. I selected colors from the photo itself to create the frame in Paint Shop Pro.

I love how the color turned out on this one!! There's something primal about it. I think it helped that you chose the perfect frame for it. Nice.
