Rollei in rainforest
« on: January 01, 2014, 08:19:25 am »

Last few days I had too much time on my hands, so I decided to test my Rollei for rainforest conditions.

At first the cold lenses had to acclimatize...

Once warmed up, things went better!

Stitch from 6 shots with the Zeiss 40mm


The small Begonia flowers in the first image can been seen at the top, in the middle.

Some more leafs - I really enjoy nature's abundance of leaf form.

Love these, nice composition of a difficult subect to photograph in an interesting way. Great use of DoF, I love the shots where the viewer has to look around the photo for the point of focus. Lovely camera too.
