Welmon Sharlhorne with his artwork in progress, Jackson Square, New Orleans, May 2012. From a technical standpoint, this photo is an interesting comparison to the first photo of Welmon -- both were shot at f/5.6. In the first image you can see the effect of the 300mm compression on the background and how nicely the background renders. The image above was shot at 58mm, and you can still see detail in the trees behind Welmon. Just an interesting side note. Sometimes we get caught up in shooting shallow apertures and forget the fact that zooming and compression also play greatly into the "bokeh" look that is so popular now.
