And now for something completely different. Shot wide open at f/1.1, converted to B&W with Silver Efex Pro (High Contrast Red Filter). I wanted to capture the following, which I think worked out well...

"With the last of the leaves nearly gone from the trees, the starkness of the looming winter starts to sink in. The nip in the air is palpable."

Well, I did it! I brought me a 50mm Nokton via Flee-Bay. Not had a chance to use it very much, but from my initial impressions I think I'm going to like it.

Couple of quick first shots to add to the samples.

Michael Michael Michael MICHAEL!

Please tell me those pieces of lumber (otherwise an excellent photograph) are not for use in your fireplace?

Nice shots, Bob - and congrats on the new lens! It's a fun lens, no doubt. I particularly like using it with an 8x ND for use in daylight wide(r) open. I think you'll enjoy it.

JD, actually... Yes... Heh. Those pieces used to form a border for a raised "garden" that the former homeowner put in. I ripped it all out (which was no easy feat, ha). It had to go as the guy couldn't build a sandpile - worse yet, I had a wasp or bee nest every year in one spot. The biggest challenge though was cutting everything into short pieces with a Sawzall. Finally, to add insult to injury the stuff is pressure treated so no - I can't use it in the fireplace... But I can use it in the chiminea outside. ;)

Those landscape timbers are actually cores that are left from the manufacture of plywood. They are what is left after a giant lathe splits off the veneer to laminate into sheets of plywood. They are run thru a planer and flattened to be able to stack. It is a method to make Money from what is otherwise trash. Kind of like gasoline which is actually a waste by- product.

The downside is they are treated with arsenic. Never ever breath the smoke from these even outdoors in a chiminea. If you do, as a favor to me, please make sure your last will and testament lists ME as the beneficiary for your cameras and lenses and I promise to be grateful. I'll even buy you a new chiminea.

:P

Hmm, that makes a lot of sense... Perhaps too much. Okay, out to the curb they go! Sorry. ;)

some very nice shots, showing the versatility of this lens. I have one, really only using it to shoot wide open at night to expand the range of Tri-X @ 400...I'll have to try stopping down during the daytime.

Its typically quite easy to focus wide open on my M3 and avoids complication as both have the 1m minimum focus...
