A few of the residents of the back porch, which is obviously not as tidy as @TNcasual's.

This is what happens when you release the hoards of mindless idiots from lockdown. Less than 200 yards away there was an empty bin, It makes my blood boil :mad:

That peculiar textured bokeh of a triplet, all rendered in an almost monochrome semi-abstract subject here, with a subtle 3-D effect.
Possibly not something of universal appeal but to those that appreciate it a confirmation that old glass still holds aesthetic value beyond the obsession of just sharpness.

xpost from “share birds” thread, mostly copy-pasted:

an 2016 shot, adapted Nikkor 50mm/1.4 Ai-S on an E-PL5, wide open mostly to compensate shooting through a not clean window and a mosquito fine mesh, processed as it was entered in the Olympus contest, under the title, IIRC:

and a few moments earlier, IIRC unprocessed (RAWs rendered to jpeg by the Apple ecosystem)

Thanks for the link.
Most of the discussion seemed to be based on modern lenses not old stuff like the Jupiter.
If I were serious about macro photography I could save up my pocket money and buy a macro lens for £300 or so. But where's the fun in that?
As you say, best to try for yourself so I've ordered more tubes, I'll report back when I get them.👍👍
Two weeks ago I made a comment about magnification and Junkyard sparkle suggested that I get some more extension tubes, so I ordered some. Today they arrived, all the way from Hong Kong in only two weeks! So obviously I had to try them right away.

Firstly here is a shot of my original 26mm Meike tubes plus the 65mm new ones plus my Jupiter 11 135mm on the epl8.

Below is a tape measure shot with the above set up. As you can see, approx 25mm appears on the long side of the image; I think that means magnification is ~0.7. Working distance is approx 35cm.

For comparison, that is the same magnification I got with the F Zuiko 38mm and the original 26mm tubes when I took the Hibiscus shot in Thursday's post above, but working distance was only 5cm.

I added the new tubes to the F Zuiko (so that's 91mm tubes on a 38mm lens) and took another tape measure shot. As you can see there's now 7mm along the long side of the image which I think means 2.5 times magnification. But working distance is only 2cm.

So far so good. I'll try to take and post some more interesting shots when the sun comes out!!
