how the west was won

last weekend i was on a family visit at the niederrhein and tried some almost landscapey stuff.

needle in the hay

bee in the barley or fly in the rye


this was all quite fun but i also learned of an (quite unimportant) ugliness of the otherwise really nice m.zuiko 40-150mm, namely very harsh bokeh wide open when focused to infinity…

bokeh not okeh (150mm@5.6)

to end with a bit more pleasant picture at least bokeh-wise here comes a frog shot with the manual zuiko 100mm f2.8 lens at most probably f4 (and still some heavy cropping).

froggy notion
