Sometimes, if there's no wolf to evade, Red Riding Hood likes to stop at a little pub near Grandma's house, have an autumn lager, and a friendly chat about big eyes, ears and teeth.

She is over 21.

I thought the colors went well together, and I got this shot.

M 100mm macro @ f11.

P.S. I didn't realize there was a stray hair on the doll's left eye (right eye to the viewer) until after I had the image on the computer.

When first saw this text on my phone this I thought it was comment spam

Nice IQ - this lens is certainly on my "buy it when I can find one for the right price/ conceal it from my wife" list

Sorry if I gave you a start, rjm007.

Some of my still life shots are planned, and some of them present themselves to me as an idea when I don't expect it.

When I saw the Sam Adams Oktoberfest bottle, I immediately thought its colors would go well with this doll I bought for a completely different shot.

As for the M100mm macro: buy this lens as soon as you get a chance.

I bought mine about 7 years ago, and mostly used it only for macro shots.

Lately, I'm discovering that it is also an excellent portrait lens.

I love my DA70mm for portraits, but when time allows for manual focusing and metering, I'm starting to use the M100 macro, and I really like the results.

Thanks for the reply.

Mike

I used my M 100/4 macro for a portrait of a good friend who was suffering from a wasting disease. It showed too many details ... I should have smoothed the skin at least.

Well, it was only a wire fence, but this bull was in a good mood that day I think Most of the longhorns I've encountered have been very docile.

Yep, they are mostly very docile.....mostly. Just remember, the Cottonmouths are NEVER docile!

You know, that would not surprise me at all! Those scoundrels will hide out anywhere they think they have a chance of injecting some venom! We were camping down by the river once when I was a kid and Orville lest the lid off the big cooler chest. The next morning when we went to get out the bacon a Cottonmouth had taken up residence next to a carton of eggs, and since it was nice and cool in there we had a hell of a time getting him out.

Regards!

Some more autumn colours with the M 50/1.7 on the Fuji X-M1, this time stopped down to f/2.8 for the first two and f/4 for the last.
