I thought Olympus made a 50mm 2.0 not 1.8 lens. Are we talking about the same tool here ?
Nice photo by the way; ISO noise is a bit apparent in the liquid though.

thank you Brent - for the comment and the edit. I suppose I have to thank Mobil for the smoothness? I picked their synthetic more for it's colour in this instance though.

Wonderfully subtle colors. It is just so delightfully smooth. An excellent entry.

Hope you do not mind - I whopped the duplicate comments. I lose my Exif whenever I use Noiseware.

ah.............understand now. Although on the other hand I don't know how how I ended up posting 3 times!

If I manage even 1 point I will make a point of posting an exif image from the series on the forum thread.

Thanks x 3 Duncan ; ) It's only the date is needed to prove it was taken in the comp period really. You can use Exifer to add it back in, but don't worry this time,

Not a lot of data in exif because of the manual lens - dug the following out of the original RAW file which was converted by Olympus master - E400 1/180th f11 (from memory) Zuiko 50mm f1.8 + Tamron 2x convertor + cheap chinese adapter! 1210h 9/2/2007 flash fired (FL36 bounced of a reflector above glass) Final image was a straight 800 x crop from original saved for web in CS2.
Hope this helps

Could do with the EXIF data if you can resave Duncan? If you are using Photoshop, do a save rather than save for web which loses it, thanks,
Bruce

Much better Duncan. How did you empty it!!!

thank you Shirley

amazing how much something so small can catch the eye and detract from an image

Nicely done too Duncan! I like the cleaned up glass much better. Makes the eyes look at the intended subject now. It still amazes me how high up past the rim liquid will hold on. Great example of surface tension Duncan.

OK having slept on it - tidied up version............thanks for the heads up.
duncan 09-Feb-2007 16:25
thank you Bruce - extra point if you can work out which one!

I did do another version removing the dust etc but concluded it was nearer a painting that the photo I shot when I had finished........so it stays! Not quite sure on the etiquette of such retouching anyway.
Guest 09-Feb-2007 16:15
Aha, I suspect engine oil ; ) Nice shot Duncan,
Bruce

you wouldn't want to drink this Marc! admit the 'dust' came as a bit of a shock when I got down to the image - I did polish the glass but not with a lint free cloth etc etc!
Guest 09-Feb-2007 14:27
Aaaargh ! I had the same idea for this weekend, i'll have to re-think it. Maybe you could polish the shot a bit (presence of dust on the top of the glass) ? I like it a lot ! And it makes me thirsty too.
