Working on a collection of the St. Louis plantation home and its oaks. It was built in 1856, privately held by the same family and is still a working plantation today. Will post later.

I watched the slideshow. Very nice place and nice pictures. The shots that blur out around the edges, why is that?

Steve, I really don't know except I was using the wide angle lens..and zoomed in more than I should have. Maybe I should have kept the lens at lowest zoom.

Thanks for viewing.

I really enjoyed your photos Jerry. I could live in any one of the houses, even the shack by the pond. Looks like you had beautiful weather for taking the shots.

Thanks, Ted. Yesterday was a beautiful day, but the rain returned today. No photos. I did try to take photos of the oaks in the neighborhood. I had to put the W/A lens on to catch the spread of the oaks, but in some instances, I probably should not have used it, or kept the focal length at minimum.

Lovely photo essay of a place you obviously love. I really liked the combo of trees and house and this one in particular





The corner blurring is a real shame. Which Wide angle converter do you use ?

Rafael, in retrospect, I believe the corner blurring is my fault. On the particular photos with the blurring I moved in close and zoomed to get closer up. I should have take the W/A off, but didn't have the camera bag to put it in. The blurring does not occur on the photos when the camera was set to minimum focal length. This was really my first time to use much and was more into trying to show the large spread of the older oaks. For instance, the magnolia tree was an example of zooming in too much, as I was trying to get just the tree from the rear of the house.

But, to answer your question, it is the Olympus 0.7X.
