"And when shooting at f/1.2, that out-of-focus part of the image takes on an ethereal quality, as you can see in the photo below."
I am quite proud of myself! Of course, the woman in the photo is so beautiful that it wasn't hard to capture a great image, but I am thrilled anyway. And I confess that after they told me that they had chosen my image that I was a little afraid that they may put it under the category of "what not to do." LOL. I was also able to announce it to my photography club last week, which was fun for me, and they very kindly gave me a round of applause (though we do that for everyone's achievements). But still, it was nice to have a moment in the sun. Here is the link to the article so you can read it for yourself! The image was taken at the Chinese New Year celebration that I previously wrote about here.
