I skipped reading your comment Orio . This is what I think.

The third is just beautiful. The arrow pointing left, man walking oppposite direction, the colorful balloons and finally the fog.....ahhhhh....It grabbed my attention.

The first is also very nice especially the happy emotion it conveys, of the girl in the tricycle thing with the folks at the back looking at her.

Thank you very much.

I used the Pelang 17mm fish on Sony A700. I think f/11. Exif data says otherwise but I believe it has to do with the chipped adapter I used.

That is a really beautiful shot!
I love this use of B+W.
And your choice of DOF is perfect.

Thank you. It was lots of luck involved though: i just bought the polarizer and we were still accommodating each other Smile

That is a story book shot.
I am so envious of those of you in Europe. So many historic sites to explore and capture.
Beautifully exposed and composed frame.

Its that clunky old flek 35/2.4 M/F lense I bought from you again Attila.

Oh---and I think its important to remember that this is a pretty good sized crop.

Confused Flek 35 is a rival lens for many $$$ ones.

I hope you understand that I'm kidding Attila. I love this lense.

Some times the meaning is lost in translation.

Good idea for a thread - I'll do like others and post one for now until the year is done - I haven't shot snow yet with my new lenses Smile

CraziestOzzy - that first shot I thought at first glance was a cool close-up of rusting metal, its even more amazing now that I actually see what it is, nice perspective there! It might make a good subject for a fake tilt shot, it would be easy to mistake it for something very small.

For my first favorite of the year, I was shooting my Voigtlander 125 Lanthar out the back of my sister Leslie & her husband Rob's boat. Rob was going a bit hard for the camera and had asked Leslie for more speed. I was very pleased to have captured the results as clear as they turned out. It was easier than it might seem in that the rope holds the tube at a fixed distance, so focus was similar all the time, only micro adjustments.

I hope a diptych of the incident can still pass as one shot, hehe.

Wow! Superb capture! With MF lenses not get this great result from an action!
