Boring and uneventful day, after finishing my weekend work brought home, I decided to play around w/ some fruit....

shot w/ 3 lenses as listed per shot

Sigma 28-200 f/3.5-5.6
6 sec. @ f/8
ISO 100
Tripod mounted w/ CPL on lens

Sigma 28-200 f/3.5-5.6
3 sec. @ f/8
ISO 100
Tripod mounted w/ CPL on lens

in this particular one, the lens decided it wasnt zoomed enough so it zoomed itself...(stupid gravity ) so half way through the exposure, i saw the lens zooming....

Pentax DA* 50-135 f/2.8
1/15 @ f/2.8
ISO 800
hand held w/ UV filter

Super Takumar 135 f/3.5
.7 sec @ f/8 (or was it 5.6)
ISO 200

Super Takumar 135 f/3.5
1/45 sec @ f/4.0
ISO 1600

series isnt special or anything..just nice to see the differences between 3 types of lenses...

i have candle shots w/ the da* maybe tomorrow if I Get to it...

all were resized w/ MS powertoys resizer, so image got degraded (more evidently w/ the tak ISO1600..not so bad on the original JPG)
also all were JPG's w/ little or no PP. (candle banana was resized and saved on CS2, others were straight out of the camera)

tnx for looking
hope someone enjoyed...

Interesting series - #1 the best of the bunch I think. a creative way to kill some time. I like the effect of "auto zoom" and number #4 is a close second.

I like the artsy look of the second shot with the artificial intelligence of the lens zooming during the shot. Better get "HAL" checked out or he may be taking over your camera....(2001 Space Odyssey).

I have to agree with Dave - the color in the first one is great, and I really like the lighting on #4. Fun playing with "found" objects, isn't it!?!?!

Did you really write that Dave with a straight face???

IMO the 4th shot is the best. That old Tak can still hold it's own.
