A quick update

The engagement ring that I gave my (former) girlfriend two nights ago, shot with my D700 and 85mm pc-e lens.

Woooo congrats! How exciting! Have you set a date?

I'm assuming you took the photo before you gave it to her, as I can't see any woman taking her engagement ring off Tongue And congratulations. You're about to have a whole lot less time for photography!

Jules, it is exciting - I've been useless all week. (More than usual.) There's no firm date yet, but it'll be in a year or year-and-a-half - it depends on where we want to go on vacation.

RP, you're absolutely right - the photo above was shot around 3am after I got it, and then I took some more photos on Monday when she was at work. But there's no worries about enough time for photography; since I planned the engagement I've told Penny that she gets to plan the wedding. (I'm not sure that'll fly.)

Adam, thanks.

Funny - I thought my buying a Nikon would get the bigger reaction. Big Grin

Congrats Matthew!

Dennis, you're absolutely right. The only odd thing is that I paid for both the camera and the ring... not sure how that works, but they're both worth it.

Don, thanks.

Jules, I think you meant to say "but my wife was nearby." Big Grin

NT, that's not gonna happen.

Rob, thanks.
