This Sigma 30mm is still impressing me after a good while of ownership. This is wide open @f1.4 (and close to the MFD)...

Cleaning up a cupboard and I came across this p&s I bought for my honeymoon back in 2006.

A whopping 4 megapixels with a 6x optical zoom (f2.8 to f3). Wicked. It came with a 128MB xD card too!

There's been a few days where I've gotten home from work late and have thought about saying "stuff it". But I'm still persevering! I'm running out of cool things to photograph in my house though! If I didn't have a macro lens I'd be screwed I think :)

Don't you think its a bit out of focus? Otherwise, i like the subject and its treatment...

Heh. Tis the post processing. I used the Nik plug-in in CS5 called 'Glamour Glow'. I toned down the sliders a bit till I was happy with it. So I prefer to think of it as 'soft focus' as opposed to 'out of focus' :)

OK gotcha.

Was it you who did a face shot of one of these pieces before, I think it had orange or yellow hair, and just the eye was in focus. That was fantastic, it felt like it had life. Can't find it now...

Yes that's the one. I really like that. Though for some reason I remembered a different hair colour. LOL. What are they actually, anyway?

It's a figurine thing from the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime. The wifey buys me all sorts of cool 'shelf space waster's' for b/days, xmas, etc.

Love the images Gabber. Looking at these (and what you are doing in the Project 365) is making it very hard to resist a macro lens :)
Out of my mind, be back eventually.

@freak ; Heh, that's exactly what I was going for and it's also what the wifey said when I showed her :) @Chancellor ; Much appreciated for the kind words. Macro stuff is pretty darn cool, my 100mm is getting it's moneys worth that's for sure. It also doubles as a razor sharp from wide open telephoto portrait prime.
