@Wētāpunga, thanks, next time I do a focus stack I'll do some experiments with method C, so far I have mostly used method B with both variables set at 8.
And I call my third challenge macro/closeup for the reason that most of the time I don't have a dedicated macro lens with me and if the subject is big enough (like in this case with the 35/2 and an MFD of 0,3 m) you can still take close-ups.


@onsplekkie, I've never been inside, but indeed the windows are pretty large for such an old building.

While the castle of Schildehof is long gone the garden shed (and the orangerie you see here in the background) are still standing and in full use
Isn't it an old greenhouse?

Lovely hyacinth shot with some delicate detail. It prompts me to take the time to photograph with my macro lenses more.

Ditto. Very nice shot, with excellent focussing.

Some more good shots in your Week 6 selection Pieter.

The architecture shot works well to showcase the decay of the two buildings, and I was interested to see that you did it as a panorama in LR.

The Hyacinth however, is my favourite shot from Week 6. It has a great balance of frame-placement, captures the delicate nature of the petals and the pink softens the overall image. Very nice.

What a fantastic piece of design Antwerp harbourscape tunnel is. I would bet you didn’t resist the temptation to capture the inside of it?

@ harm vb, I think they used the big windows for germinating some seeds in small pots but since the roof is not of glass the back of the building is too dark to be a proper greenhouse.

Thanks for all the positive comments on the hyacinth, I was also very happy with this shot, came out exactly as I had envisioned, which is not always the case with my photography.

@bonneville, the tunnels were not fully accessible but I do have some shots through the entrance gate, I just need time to PP them and then find an appropriate "Themed View" to post them in.

+1

The angled framing of the building creates a very strong image

+1. And I like the Amarylis buds. The shapes and subtle colours are quite hypnotic.

Thanks for the comments gentlemen, indeed the Antwerp harbour house is an interesting structure. So many different angles are possible but it's hard to capture as a whole.


Week 8 - Architecture

The grain mill of Pulderbos, built in 1840, extended with 1,5 meter in 1877 (you can see the extra ring of bricks at the top).
Fully restored in 1995 and since then running every sunday

A7ii + Helios 44-4 (58/2, M42)


Week 8 - Landscape

Park Spoor Oost, Antwerp. A former big railway terminal where they exchanged containers with road trucks. Then the area was used as a COVID test site and later as a vaccination site. Now that this is all mostly behind us it's back to being a big parking lot.

A7ii + Industar 61 (53/2.8, M39)


Week 8 - Macro/closeup

Amaryllis reproductive organs with a lomo style lens

A7ii + Helios 44-2 (58/2, M42) with a reversed front element
