Well, usually your images are good.

These are very poor. Camera shake or motion blur all over, there's almost no in-focus areas, and the composition leaves something to be desired.

I know the lens is decent so...

What happened?

handheld macros in poor light. focus was less than a centimeter from the front element. there is a fair bit of motion blur (camera and subject), but i suspect the lens also wasn't designed to handle such a short focus distance. i was mostly curious to see how dof and angle of view looked with such a wide lens for macro. i don't think you can get anything other than abstracts at such a short focus distance.

Ah... I see.

Nah, it's not like that. Go check his other work and you'll see.

But I do kinda wish the audience here were tougher! FM used to be like almost all pro level work with only a few such as myself, outside the gates of awesomeness. Now the vast majority or work being posted are weekender snapshots. Very saddening!

Maybe then there should be a separate paid forum for professionals! Brilliant!

Here's one more weekender snapshot with the 58/1.2

Perhaps the influx of a certain type of (portable/affordable) cameras into the market has resulted in a new wave of "alt" users who are, in general terms, "weekenders". Just a theory.

Yeah, I kinda think that's right - at least for the most part. But those folks seemed to find FM last. I mean many other sites went weekender or were always so, years ago. It seems to just be getting here over the past 8 to 12 months.

Oh well...

sebboh, very nice. I like how the three stands out against the background. I must try to do something similar myself, clearly inspiring!

thanks, the 58/1.2 is pretty good at making medium format esque stitches.

the SA did a kinda cool effect on my daughter's shirt here:
