Devizes with a nifty fifty
Lens: M50/1.4 Camera: K10D Photo Location: Devizes, Wilts, UK ISO: 160

Went walkabout in Devizes - got about 20 shots before the battery died, doh!

All M50, ISO 160, mainly at f/2.8, various shutter speeds:

This is a fantastic lens, and great to go back to a prime - makes you think about the shot a lot more. My MF skills are slowly improving too...

God I want that 31ltd!

Very nice series - I particularly like the third one. I wonder how it would look if some of the bottom were cropped away?

Great job.

Thanks; thought about a square crop (below), but this is reasonably heavily cropped already.

I have to say, I'm finding the 50mm a bit of an annoying length on APS-C... It's neither 31 nor 77mm!
