acrockett149: I bought the Nikon V1 last week because the salesman said that there was an 85mm at 1.8 that had full autofocus and would turn into 220mm. I was going to use it for kids performances in low light. I promptly returned the V1 because I found out there was no 85mm 1.8 with the AF-S required for the V1 to autofocus. A day later this is announced.
this lens still will not work with a v1. the 1 series uses 1 lenses currently the 10, 10-30, 30-110, and 10-100. this is a traditional slr lens
did you use any of the EXR modes on this shot?
it is her beauty that makes her the one for him. complain about most of the images in the contest if that cant be what he loves about her. this is a great shot.
I have judged and been in a number of photo contests, and would do much better in a print contest. brightness and imediate resposnse goes together. in this type of contest, people look at a image for a couple seconds at most and make a judgment, and a picture like yours is dark and grows on you the longer you look at it. Summit this image in a print contest (because a judge will look at it longer) on the glossiest crispest paper you can and it will score very well.
