This morning it was very foggy so I headed to a tidal bog near my home. During high tide there is a pond surrounded by marsh grass and hammock flora (palm, palmetto, scrub oak, etc.). When the tide is low, the pond becomes mud and muck. This is a favorite nesting area for wading birds. Needless to say, it is one of my favorite shooting areas. These were captured with the Composer, plastic, f/2.8 and ISO 400.

Jack,

Fog images are very special. With the plastic optic f/2.8 you reduced the details even more making them really dreamy.

Thanks Igor, Rich, and Steve.
David, I really am enjoying the plastic. In the past I shot Holgas and used Polaroid for manipulations, transfers and image lifts. I shot with soft focus lenses and experimented with defacing filters. Obviously the LB was the logical next step. The plastic kind of brings all those processes together. I'm experimenting with the other optics, but so far have been most satisfied with the plastic.

Your stuff has really been looking great too. I got out today in the fog and played with the plastic optics and the Muse. I can see why you have so much fun with them. Keep them coming, I am really enjoying them.
