Wonderful detail and color!

Thanks!  The Tamron 35 continues to impress.  It pretty much stays on my camera.  Although, prior to when this was taken, that shot I posted of the big boat was with the 70-200 f2.8 II. :-)

Such an interesting subject captured in great detail. I appreciate that this is street photography and New Orleans is such an architecturally interesting place though the modern vehicle in the background kinda pokes me in the eye.... just nit picking on a very nice image.

I actually took about a dozen shots of her and this is the one with the least amount of background intrusion.  That is the bane of street photography, "street" being the operative word. :-)  The shot I posted in the thread dealing with favorite shots, the young puppet couple, has a Ryder truck in the background.  I wish it wasn't parked there, but that's what the French Quarter looks like.  I really do try to select the background, but it doesn't always work out.  Thanks for the kind words!!

New Orleans for Mardi Gras has long been on my bucket list.  This shot just reminds me why.  Had you considered shooting with a lower f stop to create more bokeh?

I've done a lot of shooting with this lens and found that in order to achieve a good background blur, I have to be quite close to the subject.  In this case, I wanted to ensure that all of her was in focus.  And even at f1.8, the blur would have been a lot less than desired.  I thought about taking the 85mm instead of the 35, but with street stuff and an 85mm lens, especially a crowded street, I'd have to be too far to get the subject in frame.  And with a lot of people in the area, I'd have a lovely time trying to get a shot without other people getting in the shot.

Nice shot - they're not so noticeable, but her shoes are awesome.
