Hi all... there's a log in our local park that our kids play on... I've walked past it literally hundreds of times and never noticed it... stopped by it with the kids a few weeks ago and had a proper look at it... haven't really done the macro thing before, but thought I'd do a project on it... these are some of the results... Pentax K3/K3 II and various lenses: F 28-80, A 35-105 (both have pseudo macro settings)... FA 50, plus or minus fotodiox tubes... Samyang 24mm Tilt/Shift...

Anyway, you get the general idea... worlds within worlds etc...

All thoughts, contributions etc. gratefully received as ever...

Best
Bill

Nice set - to me some are abstract and yet others look like landscapes shot from space. An interesting project.

Fascinating set of images with so much detail. I can see owls, gargoils and all sorts of wonderful shapes and textures.

Cracking set, not a dud among them. Loads of interesting shapes in all of them, there is something about no 3 That appeals to me though, not sure what it is, but no 3 would be my pick of the bunch.
Great shooting.

A wonderful set with flowing lines and textures. 👍
I'd be very happy with them.

Great set of images.
A veritable cornucopia of fantasy characters jumping out of each image

So many variations with each shot, agree about "The Scream" in No 1 , little faces appearing the more you look, No 12 has a little monkey face peering through that small hollow bottom left
Kind regards Maria

Isn't it weird how the human brain tries automatically to find 'faces' in things. I can see a face in most of these

Don't think I'll sleep tonight after seeing all those faces. Very well seen and executed Bill.

Great that someone thought to preserve the log. These are really super.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
