Foggy morning with the K-3 and K 28mm f/2

Last week we had a couple of foggy mornings and one of them I grabbed the K-3 and K series 28mm f/2 to take some shots as I cross the park on my way to the metro station. The fog had left a nice dew over all the greenery. I hadn't used the K-3 with a manual lens for ages and I enjoyed it a lot and found it a good experience to keep my manual focus on a DSLR skills from going too rusty.

You've captured the "look" of that legendary lens particularly with the first shot - those beautiful subtle colours coupled with the lovely out of focus areas are so good. They do seem very slightly soft though! None of the dew beads on the webs have that crispness that some of your other shots from that Flickr album have - not that it matters much with these images

The third and first for me, please. The third because of its impressionistic look, OOF plus mist making a lovely (to me at least ) transition from individual flowers to hazy blur. The first because of the overall composition with everything drawing the eye to the centre of the web and the way that the form of the leaves (if 'leaves' is the right word) complements the form of the web.
