A tomb with a view

All the chatter about lenses recently got me to visit a favourite place, (St. Lawrence's churchyard in Meriden) with a macro lens.
I put my preset 50mm f4 Takumar on the K1 and used it for anything but macro work. It is generally agreed that most macro lenses
can be used at infinity but I was quite impressed with what this one could do, especially considering its age.

The original shot (slightly cropped for compositional purposes)

Cropped to 100%

and cropped at 200% - I accept that the K1's sensor is helping here but it still needs the resolution to work with.

On a tripod, ISO100 around f11 and 1/20th
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
