    Hi,

    the weather was fine during this haloween weekend !
    A bit of sun on sunday (hehe, how come ?) with soft temperatures,
    and a misty morning but not cold on monday.

    So, I headed for a forest walk twice :biggrin:

    Sunday shoot was a heavily loaded one :
    I took the G1 with 4 lenses : Nikkor 24/2.0, 35/2.0, 50/1.4 and the Samyang 85/1.4.
    When coming home, I realised that I only used the 24mm and the 85mm.
    I also took my new Berlebach tripod because I wanted to shoot some autumn panoramas.

    Here's a few shots from sunday :

    The monday shoot was a very different one :
    I took only the G1 and 1 lens : the Pentax/Cosmicar 25/1.4.
    A very light package :biggrin:

    Here's a few pics :

    sized_P1120850.

    sized_P1120861.

    sized_P1120858.

    sized_P1120848.

    I'll make another topic for the panoramics !

    Comments and critique highly welcomed !

    Rafael,
    Some excellent photographs in these 2 series, the first two of the first series are top notch, the others including those with the out of focus backgrounds are good with smooth oof areas, in the second series the forest shots are again excellent. For me personally the fungi shot with very shallow depth of field just doesn't work, but then I am not attracted to most photographs with very shallow depth of field coupled with a complex background, if the background is uncluttered then it's perhaps a different story.
    But once again I reiterate that those first two shots are absolutely outstanding, well done.

    Very beautiful, you have captured the spirit of the damp air perfectly; and the lovely colours.

    A wonderful series - I almost didn't click as I've seen enough pumpkins - a much better use of your time. Thanks for sharing.
