Vignette effect is post prod or your lense?

Barbara: you're exactly right, and it also reminds me of a famous painting from Delacroix: La Liberté guidant le peuple.
It even used to be on our bank notes, as it represents one of the three values of the French Republic: Liberty, that is.

Bob: post-processed vignette, I don't know yet how to get that from my lenses :)
