These are jpegs with minimal PP

both f4 ISO100 DOF was intended to be minimal.
Great lens the 45mm PL and marry's so well with the E-P2.

Very nice Boyzo. Would you say that the "true" color of the plant's body is as you've rendered it or is it a little more green? I don't mean this as any sort of veiled criticism, I'm just asking out of interest. The colors here are striking and I particularly like the first one very much - really lovely.

Very nice work... especially the restrained PP. Did you use a tripod or were the shots hand held? I ask as there has been discussion on this forum regarding the latter w/ respect to this lens.

Nice results - if I sell my ZD50 + adapter locally I'm planning on getting one of these.

Like the bokeh and dof effect - were these taken MF or AF?
Bill I used AF rairly use MF. MF only needed on occasions when stubborn subjects wont Focus lock.

Bill the PL 45/2.8 won't disappoint you it really is a superb lens its not got the Leica name on it for nothing.

Hi BB glad you like the shots, this plant is not green its kinda silver grey :smile:

These plants are very in here in Aus. well for me especially on account of our very abnormal low rainfall (Last Decade)

Succulents do have a beauty to them and so many varieties :smile:

Ok we don't get snow in Melbourne and mild frosts, these are arid desert plants.

Hi Bokey D I almost never use tripods ( I do have one) IBIS OIS spoilt me

These shots were Hand Held but Ok the dedicated macro shooter say for flowers would use a tripod and yes for max DOF a tripod is necessary, setting up tripods for low viewpoints is more tedious, I took these shots so casually using the LCD on the E-P2 and AF.

If cataloging flowers yes tripod would get that last bit out of the lens.

Light was soft dappled sun Ideal so its really just the E-P2 jpeg and the quality is surely there. :smile:

Cheers

Thank you Boyzo. We have succulents over here, too. I had guessed that your colors were real, but it's nice to know for sure.

Really superb photos and jpeg, too!:bravo-009: Good for you!
