I also have some dust on my sensor which doesn't get away by blowing air and I am too lazy for a series sensor cleaning... So I use spot removal in post processing...

Happy I am, not the only lazy person   

Actually, I noticed the dust after posting. Next pictures will be overlooked as carefully as possible.

The usual English language term for your "spacers" is extension tube or ring.

Day 1 standout so far IMO: Rov's "backyard" -- the boy's t-shirt for humor, the composition (boy's placement in the frame, the 'lone tree' in the background), the shallow DOF (perfect use of 28/2) all make me like this one.

I agree. I also like the colours and the wonderful blurred background.

Robbie: the building in this composition has a sort of smile on its face

Yes it shows its teeth. The building reminds me of a whale. See it on flickr

Thank you Robbie.

My Day 2 is a desperate shot from the morning. I was hopping to get a better one during the day, but didn't manage.

Thank you!

Wanted to do a a moonshot with the Canon 400L and 1.4x extender - but checked the moon, but it will not be visible tonight.... So, took an easy shot as I did not feel go out today (well, I went for a run this morning, but did not bring my camera and thought it was enough exercise for today )
Why not follow me on Instagram? @Addy_101

I have been busy in our new kitchen: I made the walls white again.
So I deserved my glass of red wine today.

I made also some nice pano's and the local windmill and Dalempoort. But, This one I deserved

Thanxs C_N_RED_AGAIN. You make me blush .

I actually love today's (Day3) pinhole shot of AlanfromBangor. Has some mysteriousness in it.
And the Mall shot of Jozioau (how to pronounce that?): lots of things to see, as well the curved roof.

So, As my mother-in-law was visiting us today and I'm using the 85mm in this challenge, I thought it might be an opportunity to use it as a portrait lens. Not unsatisfied.

Actually, I promised just 3 pictures a week, but I'm exceeding it already. I hope I can keep on...

Day 2

Joe (Jozioau) - I think these sculptures work really well as subject-matter for a fisheye shot.

Harm vb - I like your idea. Well done.

Fred_S - those cameras are fascinating to look at, and neatly captured.

Thanks Harm. My vision is challenged by macular degeneration and cataracts so the pinhole gives a pretty good impression of what I actually see.
