The mineral/gem collection and butterfly pavillion at the Houston Museum of Nature and Science, mostly with the "overpriced" PL45/2.8 :)

All of these are through glass.

I need more practice at close distances and to realize I actually have control over DOF now ... and wide-open ain't gonna always be the best option as it was on my P&S ...

Well, maybe you think the lens is overpriced but your doing a he** of a job with it.
They look good and the lens complements your eyes.

Thanks. I don't think it is overpriced - first, I got a great deal, second, like most people that own it, I think it is amazing! Seems a professional photographer with a blog considers it "not recommended" because it is so expensive and focuses slow.

Taking interesting pictures is a lot easier when you have interesting subjects. :)

I had been to the butterfly pavillion before, but there were a bunch more than I remembered. This was my first time to the mineral/gem vault ... I wonder if they let people with tripods in there ... it was unbelievable - I can't imagine what that all is worth.

I'll get everything into a shutterfly album soon so you can see the rest.

Oh, and these are the OOC JPG - I actually shot RAW+JPG this time (for the first time) so I'll be trying to figure out Silkypix here soon.
