I didn't get a chance at all to go out and play on Day 150...

So instead I finally processed and posted my long overdue two cents - err I mean two shots - for Day 140.

TY!! and really sorry you couldn't join the !
easy peasy? just demolish your Helios, flip the lens and you'll have instant swirls?!!

I loved EVERY series that was posted btw.
also quite taken with Mike's views and Pieter's aquilegia on page 35, reportage was pretty cool too!

TYSM, Mike!!
have you ever seen 'this'?
http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/a-different-look_topic112431.html

this is what blew me away (and where I nicked the idea ).
took Paul's advice as well and stopped down a bit this time to tame the outrageous swirls.
do agree FX seem to improve with taller subjects, revealing a sense of depth in the blurry BG?

I had seen that indeed. The lens wrench arrived last week, just have to find some time to modify the Helios

No, I had not seen that. Very, very interesting. I thought the big flip was with the rear element. I've got four Helios so maybe I'll give it a try. Hope it isn't too tedious to flip the front and I don't expect you're serious about demolishing it. Hmmm, which one... An old silver with 13 blades, another silver with fewer, a 44-2, and a 44-3. I'm thinking the #2 silver or the 44-3.

Back from Spring Break and day 140 has been processed. I had a couple of images, but didn't like them too much and I binned them. Too much ambition and too little time as we were packing the car and tent trailer in preparation for our Spring Break. Just the one left, a quick snap free handed at 140 mm, 1/250 sec. and really close-up but nonetheless fairly crisp...

140.1: Poppies

Camera Model: ILCE-7
Lens: Meyer-Optik Görlitz 1Q Diaplan 1:3.5/140
Aperture: f/3.5
Exposure Time: 0.004 sec (1/250)
ISO: 100
