By Pete      
The thumbnail will no doubt be the first nail in this one's coffin. I had a really good night of photography. A new lens has come in to test so I went for a cycle this evening to start the trial. The lens is a plastic toy lens for the Olympus Pen. It's got a fixed f/8 aperture, a focal length of 25mm and a crude focusing system. I took loads of different kinds of shots and got some interesting results. I'll be writing up the review soon.

Here's one of my favourite. The halo and vignette are from the lens not Photoshop. I shot at a higher ISO to introduce noise.

a strange effect, not sure if I like it Pete, will look out for more from this new toy - good to try new things though

The more I look, the more I like - definitely an acquired taste, but it's different which, to me, is good!

Well it's certainly different. Quite pronounced fringing but enough that it looks deliberate rather than accidental. I quite like it.
