Chris, welcome from another side of the pond too! Great picture to start with here! Love the framing and your B&W-conversion.
Ray, thank you for your comment! Will try other lenses for sunbursts/sunstars soon. The 28/2-bokeh is wild indeed, but that's fine for me ;-) I love lenses with character...
Jeff, thanks for your comment! I'm glad you like the simple shot from the garden, shooting this kind of stuff makes me happy somehow ;-)
Jose, your bokeh-play with "Nikki's daughter" is delicious. Will give my copy of this classic Nikkor some workout soon.
Thanks for your comments - the sunburst was really just an experiment too see if I could get this effect with a longer lens.
Sometimes I have doubts about using effects like sunstars, fisheye-lenses and so on - it feels a bit like working with cheap tricks.
Philippe, the 85HC's narrow angle-of-view works great on the cramped antique-shops. Love your almost 3-dimensional images, especially the "fish" and the "pharao".
Curtis, good luck for the house-hunt - maybe you can spot some photogenic subjects while on the search. The "fan in her own chair" is a fine lonesomeness-illustration.
