congrats

Congrats to your images - for a first try with this combo these are nice images.
I have the same combo (D300s + 85/1.4) and love it.
Though the others are right, the lighting is somewhat flat and a bit too much.

I myself like the 85/1.4 for portraits at around f2.8 to f4 and the flash (i use 2x SB600) to the side of cam (either one to the side at full, or one to each side with one at full the other at -1.3fev) - maybe you can try it or get a cheap umbrella?

I think she will love the images enough to give you another try

Good luck,
Chris
