More 25mm love

A much needed break and catch up with our god son and family, allowed me to get in some needed practice in before a wedding (scheduled for tomorrow but postponed due to illness). 

Sporting the 75/25 combination, that I must admit felt good and safe, I grabbed those little moments that happen. For privacies sake, I won't show the more recognisable ones, but here is a good example of great colour, sharpness and bokeh from the 25mm at f2.

The pre-set is a new one I have been working on called "deep dreaming cool" (bit wanky, but the deep feels right, dreaming refers to the slightly softened approach and cool speaks for itself). There is also a "deep dreamer warm", both looking to give the rich and deep Canon like, when slightly pushed, colour.

The main setting is boosting the blue and red saturation in the camera calibration settings, some noise reduction for smoothing, even with the slight loss of sharpness, reduced highlights, increased whites for brilliance and a little vignetting. This is just a more aggressive set of my standard preferences these days (in colour any way).

 Bit of a Thomas and Friends fan. Bokeh of this lens is rarely offensive.
