Love the black and white pictures but then all your pictures are great, just wished I could take photo's like you  
darkbrowneggs

Wow - those are beautiful pictures.  Clear and sharp.

I may need to change my ageing Olympus SP-560UZ  which has been a good friend but only ever used on automatic
Yorkshire Geordie

Very good pictures. I like their sharpness and depth of field.
The colours are vibrant also.  

Have you tried taking a close shot of a buttercup (in particular) or a yellow dandelion?
I haven't got a decent, crisp, detailed shot of a buttercup - yet! But I'm still trying.

Hello mate,been looking at some of ur images on here from the past month or so and absolutely top draw...unfortunatly mate cant get a decent macro shot on those as you need to be about 2 to 3 feet away before the manual focus becomes clear its a portrait lens really which is what i bought it for,for commissions, but i will be having a look down all avenues now for different legacy glass..next for me on the list is the Oly zuiko fixed 135mm as the images have blown me away on this 50mm that was made in the late 70's,it is so solid in its build,u are seeing heavily resized versions here which look even sharper,there are a couple of nice 105mm macro lenses which i will get but they are a bit more and the fixed oly 135 is only 50 quid off ebay and the images are prob a bit better optically from some samples i have looked at....but manual legacy lenses are for me now,i wont be buying New af lenses anymore,i am like a 10yr old at the moment with the camera!!

Beautiful pics missed them on here look forward to more  thanks

Cheers 12guage!! and horace...but i am only a person with a camera and a few bits of glass put here to document the countryside which i am very lucky to live in where others are nit, with my love for photography and the countryside which is dwindling more and more it is my duty to record what i can not only for my family but for others if it is of any use,ironically i dont even like looking at my own photos i prefer to look at others!! especially old masters with historical value...I went to ypres not long ago and at a place called 'Hill 62' there is a small untouched bit of land with trenches and museum is chocca with photos taken by the soldiers within the units themselves who had a love for photography but they were taking images of WW1 and the carnage that went on at ypes and passendale up the road...i could have spent a day looking at those..such technically good images that are an important view of history and so,so,so,so powerful but dark...breathtaking...take a look at magnum photo agency mate if you like ur photos and history its a great place to have a dukes at.

I am not much into technical stuff, but I remember when I bought it I made sure it had an optical rather thatn digital zoom

Printed on it says
Image stabilization 18x Optical zoom
Is that good?

There are lots of settings I have never used, only use the zoom and flash button and just keep it on auto all the time

I bought a bigger card for images, and I think it stores around 100 or so now, again it doesn't much matter at present as I just download them if I need to take more

And its a bit chunky to carry round, but as I only use it round the house its never been a problem

Of course all this will change shortly when I go on my travels

Do you think a good phone camera would be the way to go?

Nice phots Rustyboy 50's are good aren't they. My choice of weapon on a walk out with the dogs is an FE 2, 50mm and an orange filter. Pre loaded with Ilford FP4. Makes life simple. Dont forget Tamron make a cracking Macro 90mm. Works great on manual cameras as well as AF all singing jobies.

I had read about the tamron 90mm macro being a good legacy lens to look at diz...I want a really pucker old manual macro,my 35mm is good but pretty basic,would be nice to have a better one for half the money

Here you go yorkshire sort of got you something with a bit of a dandelion on it



Yorkshire Geordie

Thank you, Rusty.
Impressive pictures. You've got talent.  

For what it's worth, here's one of my poor dandelion pictures I'm havin trouble with.

No matter how I try the yellow seems to lack vitality.  

Here's another.

No UMPH  to it.

This dandelion is one of my best  


It's not just dandelions. Here's another yellow flower that lacks depth, somehow.


And this ------


I thing I'll pack in now.
