Would love to have submitted this one, but it's from my OM-2n, 26 years ago, and is a scanned copy of a framed 6" x 4" print.

Don't think it qualifies for the competition, but always thought it was one of my best, and more recently that is had good bokeh (once I understood what that meant!), especially as my then to be wife is the subject matter....

Engaged after two weeks, married in five months (different kind of bouquet!).

I'm going to cheat as well because this is a film shot - OM4Ti, the wonderful Zuiko 250mm f/2 wide open, handheld at about 1/125 probably on ISO 1600 Fuji neg film. It was a horrible dark day close to the winter solstice, and foggy.

It may be cheating but I couldn't resist sharing it. And best of all, we won the match :)

Ciao ... John

Well, I just happen to have a print of my daughter sitting on my desk - taken about 15 years ago with an OM1, 50/1.8 and soft focus filter. So here's a very quick and dirty scan (literally - it's very dusty, but I haven't got time right now to get the proper photo scanner out and mess about with ICE and all that).
