Upload & Sell: On
It seems image applied a strong/weird vignette to it, otherwise, I don't feel it is unreal. This is match what I see from Flickr 85L group and this is exact reason I want avoid this lens now, (though I have to try it someday) I personally don't like this kind of 'POP'. It is not the way I see things
I was on iphone, now look it again from my computer, I agree this is super weird look, especially edge of in focus zone. Though at this distance(3-4M, judged from kid size) for 85mm, the kid could have gotten similar DOF if 85mm is as sharp as legend suggested. Especially, at this web size, you can't judge DOF clearly with some PP and resize.
So, I guess it is just heavy PPed with mask/brush in lightroom or PS. the image could have been took at f1.2.
I never be a fan for this rendering anyway. (the similar apply with 200f1.8/f2 canikon)
I do see similar POP image often from 85mm 1.2 group in Flickr, though, they are just not fake as this one (bad PP taste IMO).
