    A couple from a stroll home with the Hexanon 24/2.8 and Silver EFX Pro 2. Both images @ f5.6. Surprisingly I used the LCD to compose and focus both of these despite it being bright and sunny. The articulating LCD makes it nice because you can move it around to to get better visibility when focusing. Also, I couldn't have gotten that top shot on a flat LCD without getting a face full of spikes.

    You got a lot closer to that creature in the second creature than I would've cared to with a 24mm lens. I'm generally not too squeamish, but I don't like rodents, alive or dead. That shot puts my in mind of Nine Inch Nails video for the song "Hurt".

    Very elemental shots. B&W was a good choice. The lighting on the first one is great.

    I really like the Hex's (50/1.4 and the 24/2.8). The second shot is a dead mole. In fact, I think it's a Pacific mole. It's not my favorite shot but my son asked me to post it (he's nine). He was very excited to find that.
