Scott, I suspect you're correct. I remember that a couple of shots were 
done at 2.8, by force of habit (I know the lighting at the kitchen table 
is 1/60 @ 2.8 so I don't even meter anymore, I just set the camera and 
take a shot).

I'm slightly further back than I was with the shot of my wife, but I'm 
sure that small increase of distance would have that much effect. The 
one of my wife I know is 1.4 because I had trouble focussing on her eyes 
(glasses kept getting in the way). But my daughter shot ... it might 
have been one of those habit things.

Thanks for noticing.
