Thanks Koen, I was asked to take as many photos as possible of the club members and had to be really cheeky to get up this close, you virtually have to dodge the nose hair with this lense, and I have to make sure my feet are not in the shot quite often, such is the field of view.

Yeah I know what you mean Mark,I used to dodge the school bus and hop over my grandads back fence and spend all day with him making things like model planes, telescopes, and talking about cameras, as he was a very keen amateur photographer. He also owned an Indian chief motorcycle, so it always beat going to school for me and I miss his company an awful lot bless him.

Very Devon Pooch, very Holsworthy, but for complete authenticity the car should have been a Rover.
Cracking tones and detail on this. You are doing these things so well that you are almost winning me round to B&W.

Incredible pf Pooch! love the clarity of this image - very 50's -damn I hope I'm that happy when I get older, might need to start smoking a pipe instead of cigarettes! you don't have a link to Anthony's pf yet - shitzkit...

An excellent character study which works very well in black & white. The small amount of lens distortion gives it a journalistic feel.
