Your camera settings indicate this was a very easy shot.

ISO 100

shutter 1/125

aperture f/5

FL 35mm

At those settings no VC/VR is needed.

Plus it seems clear you were using a flash.  I have no horse in this race as I use the older Tamron myself. but just about any Nikon lens capable of shooting at 35mm would have done at least as well.

See my plan (in my profile) for what I shoot with. See my gallery for images I find amusing.
