Cool old gate Andy, nice capture.
Andy, glad to see you back around the old place and I do like your secret garden gate very much. Just took a look in on your flickr pages and see you've been quite busy with some manual focus lenses.
This photo has a faery world quality to it - that shallow depth of field, the what I believe is fall off and the soft colors work beautifully with this scene. Many thanks for posting it here.
I have been about but not taking pics due to the weather. I did take a few with my Lumix TZ6 P&S but this week has been my 1st chance to use my GF1 for a while.
Yes i have been using MF lenses, this is due to the fact that i love em!! The 20mm f1.7 and 14-45mm lenses are superb but the MF lenses give my shots an old atmosphere that i like. These is a certain pleasure i get when taking shot's with a lens that cost just a few pounds!
Thanks Andy. I'm going to get back on to your photostream and take a closer look later on. I have to get myself out there and try it, too - I may become a cult follower.
Oooh!! That will be interesting, i have never had a cult follower before!
yes, a faery good photo. I dont see many gate or fence shots and this one works very well....I like it...cheers
love the antique look with focus and vignette.......
Hi Andy...I have a gate shot from not far from Farnham in the UK...
He he, cool, not a million miles away from each other!
The lens used was SUPER TAKUMAR 55mm f1.8. I should have used something a little wider as the ally way i was in meant it was impossible to get a good angle far enough back.
