    Looking real good.
    That's my favorite 28mm ever.

    thanks ... I find it really hard to focus this lens accurately on the E-P2, even with focus assist, at any aperture ... but, boy, when I get it right, the rendering is just exquisite ... and it loves monochrome

    Try it on a lower res camera like the Eppy Rd1-s....
    Man, that lens is a winner.
    On film like Tri-X... Anyway, ya have a great lens and I'm sure it will compliment your vision.....

    another shot of the same fruiting body taken 24 hours later ... something I find fascinating about these fungi are how they change shape and texture according to the humidity and temperature ... different lens of course, one with its own charm ...

    Very interesting ... I think a tight crop and B&W would yield a very nice series ... ala Weston Bell Peppers.

    thanks.
    it's a thought, but I I'm happy with leaving them as they are .. EW started out with a particular intent, while these are a sort of serendipitous documentary ... the colour and and how it changes are important to me ...
