So I went and bought the F/1.8 35 mm lens this afternoon. I played with it a little tonight, and OMG I'm in love! It's amazing at how much brighter and crisper my pictures turned out. So my question is--- how does the color look to everyone in this one? On the camera display it was perfect, but it's looking a little pink to me now. Which leads me to a new discovery-- I can adjust the pre-programmed white balance settings in my camera! It might be common knowledge to others, but it sure excited me. So I had the white balance set to incandescent, but adjusted b2 m2, because it still looked too yellow. Another discovery-- and this one really has me pumped-- my husband was reading the D5100 user's guide on kenrockwell.com and found that Auto ISO can be set to automatically increase as much as needed for a certain SS to be met. YIPPEEE!!! We set it to where the ISO will adjust as needed for my SS to be at least 1/200.
Here is a crop and conversion that I ran through that noiseware software (which I love btw, thank you). Just look at her eyelashes. I know that since it was quite a crop that the resolution will be low when blown up, but for use on FB it's fine.
