Fall Guy

Back home in the bush, three hundred kilometres from narrow lanes, busy streets and towering buildings,
I went into Wang' this morning seeking new sights to delight. I soon realised that the new toy is a city kid.


Zuiko 8mm Fisheye, F1.8 Pro, less than 2 inches from focus point.

1/250, F5.6, ISO1000

Re: Fall Guy

I think the fisheye has worked really well in #1

Re: Fall Guy

Thanks John, I agree. The second was testing the lens to see how it handles close ups.

I will try and do better today in spite of debilitating Flu. Sandra says I have "Man Flu".

Re: Fall Guy

I've just read an interesting article online, "THOUGHTS ON THE RIGHT CAMERA AND LENSES" by one Yannick Hong.
One point he made jumped right off the page at me,
"Bokeh: a polarizing issue I believe as lenses that focus too much on bokeh end up compromising on many other things.
Bokeh shots are way overdone today and carry little to no information. At most, it compensates for lousy composition skills."
