RuthC: Great portrait of....! Has the subject hurried back inside where it's warm?
Agreed - not sure if that's the artist's intent here. Thoughts @skondakalla?
Great shot - congratulations on the win!
Create: Why was my entry removed from the challenge
It was shot with an E-mount camera and lens. This challenge was for A-mount. Don't worry - I'll be doing a future E-mount challenge.
tbelal: What about the Minolta A mount, camera and lens?
For some reason I didn't get any notifications for comments on this challenge! Sorry guys. I'll have to do another in the future. Multiple submissions as well as Minolta A mount would have been fine.
Where was this taken? It looks familiar...
I've been asked to DQ this one, but in case there's some artistic interpretation I'm missing, I'll let the voters determine where this one lands.
What a gorgeous shot!And so much detail and sharpness even at f/5.6. What lens & camera did you use for this?
Very cool shot - I like that you shot almost entirely in the reflection only. It makes for an interesting perspective!
Sorry, but to keep this simple please only submit shots taken with a 50mm prime lens. On full frame or 35mm film, that's going to have an effective 50mm. On Canon or Nikon APS-C that's going to end up at an effective 80mm, on Sony APS-C it will be 75mm, and on Olympus (4/3) it will be 100mm effective. Hope that clears up the confusion. Good luck!
The price of the lens is not important, nor is the aperture. The lens focal length still should be 50mm before any multiplier or conversion. The reason behind mentioning the inexpensive f/1.8 is more because I want photographers without a lot of expensive gear to be able to enter this challenge. So in response, the 50mm f/2 is just fine as is the f/1.4.
