50 mm Lens Giveaway Entry **WINNING ENTRY**

I have dedicated myself to taking some good pictures of my seven grandchildren; it’s just that these pics were never good enough using a point-and-shoot. So… I took the plunge and after considerable research, decided to obtain a DSLR and settled on a K-3. I now suspect it will take me many months and thousands of dedicated pictures to hone my new hobby. I am using the 18-135mm lens and would love to have a prime lens to improve my portraiture. I am attaching a K-3 picture of one of my grandkids (Skylar) for your evaluation. Thanks…

I hope that participants can nominate someone's work as well.

I love the dedication of creating great memories and the way of creating them. It's very nice portrait, and I believe more of great work will be done with good 50mm prime.
Nominated!

This is a very good shot. I love it. If you don't mind tell me how did you manage to take this picture like which lens did you use and other stuff like F, shutter speed, focus length and iso.

Thanks

Did you remove the color in camera or with post processing? There is a hint of color left right?

50mm lens giveaway - camera settings [reply to inquiries]

Thanks for compliment. In reply to your question, and in no particular order, here are some details regarding the photograph: 4.59pm with natural light only, lens used Pentax 18-135 ED WR, f=6.3 (or 5.6 depending on what software you use to get info[??]), jpeg, P mode, 135mm, 1/320 sec., pattern metering, compensation 0. This picture was in the middle of some 55 images I took in burst mode over ~ 6 seconds (grand daughter chose this clip as her favorite). Original was in color. I then cropped it a little and then turned it into black & white. Hope this helps. [fyi, if interested, here are some of my pics @ www.flickr.com/photos/sunset_beach_buzz/]. Regards.
