Taken in Australia

On the way home on this spring evening, I walk on the neighbourhood footpath. The new leaves have appeared on the lonely branches, and it captivated my heart.

Using an C-mount machine vision lens, it is very fast at f0.95, so I can take this photo in the dark. The narrow depth of field focused on only a handful of leaves, and brought out a 3-dimensional look I intended (almost a tilt-shift look). The lens flare, resulted from a street light nearby, produced a mini rainbow, which is a surprise on capture.

Taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 with C-mount adaptor and Senko 25mm F0.95

  • Yes I love the colour of this one too. Typically long exposure give birth to the colour of the night on photos. This is a very bright/fast lens, so it captures the colour in a shorter moment.
