That one thread that I don't regret its length!

Diverse set of photos, and all interesting (though it's maybe lacking some tasty food shots )
See my webpage!
A-mount stuff, and few µ43 stuff.

Some different and colourful shots of Tuscany.
#14 and 15 look familiar, but I can't recall where it was. Also some places I haven't been and seen myself yet. TFS.

Quite a breadth of places and diverse activities on show here. Perhaps could have been sub-divided and posted separately (eg Carrara Marble, the Lake, Lucca, the festive procession)?
Most enjoyable armchair tour for the viewer.
I particularly like the lake in #12, the scenes of Lucca especially #14 and 15 (a favourite place we stayed during our last visit to Italy), the delightful shot of the happy children #18, and those remarkable festive caricature figures with the giant Pierrot/Pagliacci clown and all his human attendants dressed the same #21, and last but not least the remarkably well depicted Rolling Stones.
Thanks for sharing.

It happens rarely when someone posts photo's of an italian marble cave or carnival. Now we can see it in one post! Too bad the mountain is being "consumed". Some shots may benefit from a slight increase of contrast (#17 is a good example), although on the other hand these look very natural. The carnival shots look great - never saw Mick and Kim Jong-un this way before . TFS Andrea.

Fascinating to see the inside of the mine - the figures and vehicles help us to guage the sheer scale. That said, my favourite there is the tunnel (#8) with no people at all :-)

The play with shallow DOF works well in the 'people' pics later on. Then in the carnival, my clear favourite is the low angle looking up at the Rolling Stones. Most amusing!

    They are both from Lucca, a beautiful small town.

    Than I was right I have been in that nice town. Rented some bikes and made a tour through the city. Probably had lunch on this square.

    Simply outstanding series. I SO loved it!

    Can't pick a fave, there are so many great shots. Possibly the last might stand out for me, but many others I like just as much.

    A long post like this is more than OK!

    That's really an enormous variety in this set of images! And all of them are against the grain of Tuscany photo sets!

    I am drawn to the more quiet motifs like #11 and #13 - still very unusual for the location.

    The 28mm Yashica ML lens does an outstanding job! It would by nice to have it added to DYXUM's collection of non-native lenses. Without checking I suspect that its construction is quite similar to the 28mm Distagon for C/Y mount.

    TFS!
