    This is very nice Michiel. I like the way the car's lights pick up the warm tones of the metal truss.

    Here is one where this lens really shines; bokeh style portraits.

    Thank you for your comments, Keith and Paul. I really like that look in image #1, Paul. My daughter has that same lens, and I just happen to have an OM/m4-3 adapter. Will have to see if I can get a similar result, as you.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks Owen. This last one of yours has a really nice dreamy quality. My two pics don't really do the OM lens justice. They were shot under very low light conditions and my old eye was straining to find focus. This copy of the lens is really amazingly sharp wide open when you get it focused right

    Those "globe" images are very nice, Paul. I like the choice of color and the composition.

    Owen - another good one with "Time Travel"

    Here is a simple bokehgraph taken with a Kiron 75-210 f4 zoom that I just picked up for $35. Nice lens, comes with macro and zoom lock.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks, but that's way more attention than my amateur-images should be receiving.
    Taphapy, for the 5 abstracts that I shared on this page I simply arranged various objects and used very simple lighting and went hunting for anything usable. "Radioactive-seawater" was an intentional setup. I used sheet brass to isolate the red end of a thermometer, set a blue transluscent 12" ruler approximately 2" from the red globe, dropped a tiny piece of crumpled aluminum next to the globe, lit the objects from above and pointed my lens, with 67mm of macro rings, at the reflective surface of the rule and shot away. The portion that looks like seaweed is actually scratches on the ruler. Each image has a similar story. No photoshop at all and all shot in raw, converted, resized, cropped (if necessary) and saved as jpgs for web.
