Here I am continuing with digging out some previously shelved, but thankfully not deleted posts while I wait for the return of my computer, which should be later today. The power supply was replaced and the rest of the computer was having tests run overnight to see if the power surge cooked any other parts. Fingers crossed that all else is fine.
So, tales of woe aside, these photos are from last fall and show raindrops caught up in a small pine tree we have growing in a pot on the patio. They illustrate quite nicely the difference in the Takumar macro bokeh at about f16 (top) and about f4 (bottom).
Close up shots all taken with SMC Takumar 100mm f4.0 macro screw mount (m42) lens on a Canon EOS 5D MkII.
