Award Shortlist   


By hobbo
This morning, I made a wonderful discovery, one that I will use again with the right subject in front of me.

I experimented by attaching a single extension ring to my vintage....MINOLTA ROKKOR - PG film camera lens, then fitting the combination on to my Panasonic LUMIX GX8 M4/3 camera.

Yes! Focus is tricky, especially with the Linís wide open, but I soon discovered the happy medium to capture a series of beautifully soft, delicate captures of flowers in our garden....each time, forming the no cropping, just the minimum processing required for RAW files.

I am mightily pleased with the result.....more experimenting will follow.

I include other frames shot at the same time.
