    Wow, very painterly.

    What was in the background creating the bright spot?

    There was a small gap in the bushes letting sunlight through... Oh well :smile:

    Excellent shot, exactly why I love this lens!

    it is like a brush, a wonderful lens capable of most beautifully rendered out of focus areas as well as being capable of crystal sharp images when required. (at only f2.8!)

    It's actually quite a lot sharper stopped down than I expected - better than the 20/f1.7 and genuinely stunning at f4-5.6

    wow. how close were you? Is this lens manual focus or auto, because i found with my 20mm if i go over to manual i can get even closer that what it would under AF.

    The Voigt focusses very close for a non-macro - about 18cm from the film-plane.

    MF only :smile: But yeah, I've noticed that with the 20/f1.7 too...

    That seems to be true for the 45mm as well.

    Not really worth another thread so some more in the same style :smile:

    I think the first was probably at f1.2 or f1.4...

    For your first photograph what, if any, post processing did you do?
    Thanks,
    Jim

    I process all my photos with basically the same workflow. I get bored with editing so avoid anything beyond the fundamental techniques.

    - Shoot RAW
    - Develop with Aperture 3 with default adjustments.
    - Adjust Levels through both RGB and individual channels (this is how I adjust contrast and fix the Aperture/GH2 colour-balance issue).
    - Sharpen/crop/straighten/desaturate as suitable.

    I don't think the first shot had anything other than slight Levels - no sharpening anyway...
