Default rainy day, dream away, lay back and groove on a rainy day... 24mm f2.8 sigma MF

My broken Sigma 24mm Super-Wide f2.8 AR mount. Aperture is problem, I can set it WO but then if I stop it down it will not go back open unless I take the adapter off and use the little lever to manually retract the aperture and then let it go back...

Anyways still has an interesting macro mode and here are some shots on this rainy day where I am


took a bunch of this rain drop held on to by the little caterpillar like hairs of this iris, can't decide which of these two I like best.

I flipped back and forth at your flickr site with the first two shots on the dark background. The first shot draws you right to the raindrop over and over again.

The second one doesn't do that.

The first one makes you really want to see what's "inside" that little raindrop.

I didn't even read your post to start, but I immediately spotted that raindrop and was going to ask if you actually knew it was there. I had to look for it in the second one.

BBbuilder,

Thanks for your comments. I agree with you that the first one draws your eye to the rain drop, here is a crop where you s/b able to see the three out of focus roses in the background, reflected in the rain drop.

I like #1, 3 and 5. I have one of those Sigma lenses (Super Wide II Pentax K mount) and find the macro capability to be decent.

Tullio,

Thanks for looking. This lens is the plain super wide, not the super wide II, but still it does a pretty decent job as a macro lens.

These were handheld shots so I cranked the shutter up to 500 to avoid camera shake. I think I could get more out of it by using a tripod next time, but overall I was happy with these.
