Default Patterns in Winter

I found the patterns created by these bridge nut bolts to be really interesting. And just wanted to find out what everyone thinks. Used the 35mm macro.

And the last picture is there just to show a bolt close up, with the lens wide open.

Nice shots. They will probably also look good converted to black and white shots.

Good stuff, I like them. What would they look like in B&W?

Did you try putting your tongue to them?

Great idea Steven, I hope he post the converted B&W versions.

Very nice, indeed! While not a big B&W fan, I agree with the rest that they'd look pretty good in it.

Indeed very nice picture! Thumbs up !

I still need to look for a macro lens next to the EX-25 that I already own. I did read on the web somewhere that 35mm was a better option then the 50mm lens. Is that so, can someone confirm?
I also bought a 14-54 II lens since I did read so much problems with the 12-60.

What lenses do you have now? Why doesn't the EX25 work with those lenses?

At this moment I have the 14-45 3.5-6.5 and 40-150 3.5-4.5 that I already did own with my E-500. Since some weeks I own a 50-200 2.8-3.5 for my E-3 and now that 14-54 II is also mentioned to be with my E-3. My oldest daughter starts to be interested in photography and the E-500 will be used under her hands in some time after I did give her some info and lessons in what I know so far.
That was the plan.
I did test the ex-25 with the 14-45 but that didnīt give me any good results, but that can be my fault as well.
I did try also to make a macro shot with the 50-200 and no ex-25 but that was not that good in my thoughts, see pictures below.

Hi Lordje: Now that you have the 14-54 give it a try with your EX-25. It will probably work better than a telephoto for macro shots.

(I don't do macro very often, so I can't give you much advice. I have a heritage Olympus OM 50mm macro that works well. The viewfinder of the E-3 is bright enough so that the manual focus is no problem. )

I think "5 o'clock shadow" is a good title for the second picture of your first post. I love the shadows as they give you the perspective of early morning - as in 5am.
