I was curious as to what the dof would be on the f1.2 lens wide open at f1.2,so I focused on the lettering here.It is clear to see how limited the dof actually is.Quite sharp on I and T but not so sharp on the other letters.
A great experiment. It looks like it's in the blazing heat........Sandy
It must feel like a whole new world, Mick, concentrating your attention on the engraving when there's all that rust around!
No risk of camera shake at 1/2000th of a second, of course
A fascinating experiment and (let's face it) a worthy subject!
Love I T Mick, they stand out ,
Inventive and interesting imagery Mick
An interesting and informative exercise, Mick.
A fascinating experiment!
Very interesting photo Mick ! I told my son I T is the focus of our times and a worthy occupation to pursue
Made me laugh, I know how effectively your eyes will focus on a padlock, letting everything else (wire fences, security guards, No Entry signs ) disappear into a blur...
A Bill says, must have been a great temptation to focus on the rust! But a great excercise in DOF, Mick
guess this is dof experience time Mick...
did it do what you wanted though...
as looks OK from here
Amazing example of shallow DOF Mick.
According to the table that came with my new Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 the DOF at shorter distances is close to zero. Now I believe them
A nice experiment that gives a different result; the padlock appears to be bended inwards a little, that must also be taken into account perhaps, Mick.
All very well looking at the f stops, but what about the rust resolution factor
good study on dof!
I T is a great image Mick and I can see some rust as well there
You need a stack mate!
Very interesting (Rowan & Martin's Laugh in).....
Interesting study Mick - something I'm trying to learn more about!
Good to know you're well enough for this kind of experiment.
That's you to a T.
Your comment on my image is the second best comment I have ever had.You have such a way with words.
Now I know where to go when I need an IT expert!!!!!
Lock, lock, lock.... lock around the clock.
While I was in Scotland I found a lock for you, but I have to find it now among all those images I took. I'll post it in due time!
Good to try varying things, sometimes they work and sometimes not - looks like you had a little time on your hands
Mick, great dof............another year of rust and don't think it will open. You have a great eye for picking out the things we all miss. That's what makes your shots so good.....
Great DOF experimentation...you will have to go back to this one when it rusts up!
It is good to experiment! I am doing plenty of that with my new little pocket camera, it is certainly giving my brain a workout (I've given up on my body).
Shows promising rust Mick!
Just spotted this as featured e2 photo
You are featured e2 piccy at the moment :
That lens lends itself to some very artistic compositions. This is really attractive, although you say it was just an experiment.
Mmm never ever have time to do the analytical stuff usually have to get our skates on !
Not to mention the lens has actually left out the 'Y' at the end of the word
My Minolta is like that. It's an MD 50mm 1.7...and it's soft at 1.7. I've read a lot of lenses like ours do that wide open and that they get really sharp at 5.6 - 8. Mine seems to be fine at 2.8-4 in flat light. But definitely super sharp at 5.6.
they are great fun those lenses.. fantastic bokeh.
there is on;y one thing I don't understand. I would have thought the camera automatically locks on the rust and all you have to to is blur out more or less of the shiny rest!
Nothing wrong with a bit of corroded impressionism with a "secure- it" lock!
