Well, great fun with massive constraints, not able to move far from flat. And chose the plastic Holga 60mm f8 lens. Fully manual, can't even be added with proper 60mm had to enter it as 58mm.
Not that it will make much difference as it is so...toyish.
Difficult to find keepers but here we go:
Any suggestions welcome, I am keen to keep this lens on and have fun with it.

Agreed, kinda soft, but a nice shot. That's what is great about the Oktoberfest. You get to experiment with a lens for 31 day, trying different things, and posting the best shot you could muster for each day. It is super challenging (for me, at least), but a good way to get used to a lens.

Interesting shot, and nice B&W use here. Seems like it is more in focus closer up that at the gate (white line on the left seems sharpest). Was the intent to focus on the footsteps? Just curious...
Yes I was aiming for focus on the footsteps. I also have other shots with focus on the gate.
The manual focus on the plastic lens is loose, it moves the entire lens as well as what it is supposed to.

Oops - did it again. Commented yesterday and forgot to hit "post reply". :banghead:

01 - interesting effect this thing is going to give you this month. Only suggestion for use I would have is that I would probably use it at night and in foul weather for monochrome conversions. But that's me.

02 - I like this one, the comp with the feet really draw me into the image.

Very poor weather today. Still the same lens. 10 seconds after this shot a kid rode his push bike in this puddle. No harm to the camera which had been tucked away. Kid's trousers and top were not so lucky. An unhappy mum too.
