@Turerkan, How did we do in this second assignment? Some of us in this photographic course take this more seriously than others and wants to hear that we have passed before we go to the next level. LOL

i live this moment over and over again continuously with my street photography:)
imo for your bravery, you deserved to pass:) composition-wise, i think you could use the odd angle for a better advantage, it could be more interesting.

btw, incase clover is waiting for a response, i think he shouldnt hesitate to shoot for #3, nice photo:)

rosie: i cant even see the spider! LOL:)
An interesting fact is, yesterday i shot a spider at 2 cm distance from my front element, with a sig 50/2.8 macro. You gotta beat me!

(of course you dont have to! )

why not try your 100/3.5 with the spider?

Thank you for the advice and for letting me pass. Next stage will probably be harder.

Well, if it's still there on August 1st I might give it a try, or I could always shoot it on film and you would never see it!!!

Honestly, I wouldn't normally go this close. Will it do?

This may seem like a lack of effort but I could not think of anything that I shoot from a distance because I am afraid or embarrassed. I do should my dog Austin quite frequently but never as close as this shot. I used the KM 11-18mm at 11mm. To be honest I was quite surprised at how close this lens will focus and how much can fit into the frame. So even though it is not a great image I have learned from it. I was close enough I was afraid my dog was going to jerk his head around and hit the front element with his big wet nose and I had no filter on the lens because I swiped it for another lens!


DS

PS it appears I broke the rule of the first lesson but his head is in the top 3rd with his eyes just below the line :)

One day at a time

Ok, I just had to add this one...
While shooting at Gary the Snail, I saw a fly and it looks like it was 'sleeping' and I was able to sneak two macro shots :))
Here's the better one (almost in full frame):
