Id say the f1.7 because the front element is most protected/recessed.

As diminutive as the 15mm Ltd, but giving those images with surreal proportions that extra bit of "incredible"

My neighbourhood has the distinct honour to be on the regular flight path of one of only two Lancaster bombers still in operating condition. She's affectionately called VERA. The local airplane museum flies her over the falls, and around the GTA. Today, she passed over a number of Cenotaph ceremonies with a C-130 Hercules and a B-25 Mitchell. I exercised a bit of artistic license....

Apparently the new Photoshop CC 2018 has a new enlargement algorithm (Intelliegent Scaling - Preserve Detail 2 which uses machine learning to improve results. I have not really played with it as the native output suit me fine, but you might want to look at the latest release information.

Any lower POV it would be a criminal offence. Upskirting the lasses should be frowned upon in this forum. Silence is tacit endorsement.

A friend dropped off some peppers for me and I have to obey: "the red rule... when I see Red I shoot it"

Several months ago Scott Kelby posted a little tip for wedding photographers about using macro lenses and the glossy surface of a cell phone or tablet to make great photos of bride and grooms rings. I've used the technique a few times since, and in this case, I used it two ways. No flash was employed in the making of these photos... but I works with flash too.

Really ought to drop into a user group and request a meet up. I am pretty sure there is a Denver and area group here. Else that, I am in Denver in Dec. and am always willing to meet a local photog for a cuppajoe and a walk about.
