Found yesterday morning in our attic whilst retrieving some kitchen equipment for the lady wife, this lens once belonged to my father. I cleaned it up, put it on my K100 and took out for a walk to the park in the spring sunshine. With a little help from a +2 close-up lens (better quality than I thought) and a short extension tube.







Best wishes,

Andrew

wicked i realy do like the first one, and the 3rd the lines on the 3rd are kinda mesmorising too.......... hypnotist at work..............

the 1st is very striking andrew, im shocked to see you used the close-up lenses..... i got rid of mine ages ago, they weren't doing me any good.

Well done MR. A and thanks for the comment on my flower, i have been testing my lens to its limits, and it has passed..... I took that shot today around half 3 before i went into work and then just cleaned it up when i got home.......

Still, good shots you got here and i think just play a bit more with your angles and lighting and you'll be shocked.... Chat soon

Thanks Shane,

Yeah, well...I too never thought I'd use a close-up lens having heard the rumours, but as it was a found item I gave it a go. Honestly, though, the results were better than I was expecting with reasonable edge to edge sharpness. These were all hand held using natural light, too!

Now I bet you can't wait to get that lens under the studio lights for some nice tight head shots!

I said I was waiting for the macro shots

Lovely colours in the first one, and I rather like the composition in the second. Nice shots.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
