Hi there!

I just received my baby yesterday and have of course not really had time to come to grips with how to use it yet. I think I overdid it on the effect in these first shots, I see some really awesome pictures in the galleries here so I have some work to do to get it right. The pictures below were taken using the f/5.6 aperture ring and a wide-angle adapter. Anyway, just thought I'd say hello, hope to learn from you guys how to get the most out of this cool lens!

Hi there!
Nice to see you here too and your great start with your LB.
What wide-angel adapter are you using? is it the 10D or MkII?

Hi Karin!

The w/a adapter is the wide/macro one, "Digital Optics .45X Conversion Lens". Camera for these picture was my MkII.

Oh yes!
Especially the last one.
Give me a feeling of diving in through the scenery.
What did you use this time?

Karin, same equipment as the three first shots, w/a adapter only for the third though. What I did for these new pictures was experiment a bit with a brightness/contrast adjustment layer with a layer mask. Basically I created a vignetting (or in the case of the pidgeon a diagonal) to darken the edges quite a bit. I think it works for focusing on the main subject and also takes the edge off the blurriness a bit. Makes the lighting in the pictures a bit more dramatic. Experimenting is fun, something I've done too little of lately. :)
