    So, as I've mentioned, I work in a camera store and every now and then I bring home some gear to mess around with. This time, it was a macro lens to try out on my brand new Pentax K20d.

    I don't have a tripod yet (got rid of my old Optex one and replacing it with a Gitzo as soon as I can afford it) so this was done handheld, at ISO 640.

    F/10 1/320, Frost on the window:

    Nice, reminds me of an aerial shot.

    thats an awesome shot of frost. i'd almost be tempted to use a different colored light or play around with some filters if you borrow that lense again and try a similar shot.

    Cool shot. It would have taken me some time to figure out what it was if you hadn't posted it. Thanks!

    Very cool, a few gels would make it interesting.

    Gels would be interesting, if I had been using a flash that is ;) I don't think I want to climb up to my third story window to cover it with a gel *chuckle*

    I took a lot of photos, this is a cropped section out of one of them, enjoyed the patterns.

    you could mount a lazer pointer at the window and take the pic, that would give you red at least....
