Tiger is Arthur's favorite toy. Just the right size for him. :D

All done with this lens: AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G from Nikon (http://nikonusa.com/Find-Your-Nikon/Product/Camera-Lenses/2183/AF-S-DX-NIKKOR-35mm-f%252F1.8G.html)

Thanks guys!

Looks like it has a load of potential. If it was me. And I completely think this is a subjective thing I would drop it down a couple of stops to f 3-4 ish. From my own very limited experience so far the sweet spot of my lenses seems to be a couple of stops under widest aperture.

:lol: however as i am new to this that might be terrible advice so I would wait for someone with more knowledge to post.

I have only ever shot at 1.8 and that was in real twilight takingbthe badger pics when I couldn't use a flash

That's the main mistake I made Chris when I started using my prime. If you google your lens and sweet spot you should come up with the magic aperture Billy :thumbsup:

I love the shots of Arthur. He has the sweetest expression! I don't know how you keep from carrying him around all day!
