Jani's Oktoberfest '08; 180/2.8 & 10.5/2.8

Discussion in 'Photo Meme' started by DrJani, Sep 30, 2008.

  1. Dear all,

    as many of you know, I can't resist challenges. At least not all of them. And the prime challenges are the worst :biggrin:

    So, I'm joining the party with my 180/2.8 and 10.5/2.8, one shot per day (that's needed for the 366 Project in any case).

    As a bonus (or a bolt-on, as you might want to call it), I'll try to capture all the 180/2.8 shots in bw and the ones with the fish cropped to square format. This time I probably won't do a every-second-day-with-#1-and-every-other-with-#2 as I did in April (although then the longer one was the 85/1.8).

    Enough talking: Let the game begin!

    Oh, one more little thing: I love to hear my shots are crap (esp. if you can also tell me why).

    Good luck with the 10.5 as well. I think it will be interesting to see how we all use it. I may try and do a week with it on and off. If I didn't just get the IR filter for the 50mm, I would do the whole month with just the fisheye but I can't hold out on playing with it.
  3. Love that you've got the extreme ends covered. Will be fun to watch you for sure.

    Straight lines
    10.5mm @ f/8, 1/100", ISO 100​
  5. Funny title :) . Really sharp.
  6. Hard to believe that's a fisheye shot. Lovely composition and excellent capture of difficult sunlit green.
  7. Great first picture Jani !
  8. More fisheye fun! I'm looking forward to your use of this novelty lens.

    Great start Jani! Love the colors! Autumn is the time of the year when I start to thinking of going back to shoot color!
  10. Thanks for all the comments.

  12. the grass does nothing for me, i don't know why.

    LOVE the 2nd one though
  13. Thanks Gary!

    Even I'm not sure of the #1... I liked the composition, which made me to take the picture, and I liked the silent and peaceful moment, but I'm not sure if I was able to really capture it. Also, I'm having problems with the square format (which is exactly why I decided to do the fish shots using it).

    Glad you liked the #2.
  14. Oh, how that me reminds me of my grandma.
    Could that picture have been taken in any other country?

    Nice composition and it looks good in b&w.
  15. Oh my gosh! How wonderful. We don't usually have those bed covers in the US. They are so comfy.

    Great second picture! Perfect conversion and composition! 5 out of 5!
  17. Thanks Frank, Craig, Rich, Birgit and Fredrik!
  18. I REALLY love the second shot.
    I'd REALLY love the first shot, but I like blue skies.
    That's my ONLY complaint, though.:smile:
