....it rained off and on over the long weekend at my house, so I decided to goof around with closeups, macro and DOF. I also tried a slide film OTHER than Fuji; this is Kodak Ektochrome 100 VS (very saturated?). The slides have better color than these scans will indicate, but I think Fuji is still the king. This image of the ivy clearly states the need for a polarizer. I was playing "fill the frame" with 135mm lens. It was very overcast for this shot, so I opened up to f2.8 so I could still handhold the camera at 60. I knew the DOF might suffer a bit. A friendly Japanese beetle devouring my black-eyed Susans...
