Flickr a Day 295: Is It the Eyes?

I selected this untitled capture by Dan Foy after seeing it has more than 46,000 views—considerably greater number than the nude of the same woman. I must admit that it’s a simple, straightforward photo that was certainly more difficult to shoot than it looks. Composition is superb!

Dan shot the outdoor portrait on June 18, 2009, using Canon EOS 40D and EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. Vitals: f/1.4, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, 50mm. From Derby, United Kingdom, he lives in Nottingham. The photography BA graduate joined Flickr in September 2005. You can also find him on Facebook and Twitter or his photo blog.
