"The Sunday Challenge": Back to basics, focal length 50mm / ISO 100 / No editing of any kind

We have had a grey week but Saturday the sun was out so I could take these shots without getting them all shaken.

Back in the time of camera film I always used ISO200 to obtain more flexibility.

Spot the bumblebee ;)

Good challenge :) I learned that my SLR can take nice shots that don't need editing but setup are crucial and a challenge.

Another example in note.

Nice shot. Yes, it takes study and thought and setup--just like we used to do in film days. We've become so used to shoot and see how it looks now.

Excellent composition. What comes to exposure, I say it could have been just a tiny pit darker. Although, nowadays it of course much depends on each viewers' display settings ;-)

Thank you Sami :D

Yes display setting and also personal preferences are always effecting viewed brightness level. Back in the time of film professionals often made exposure bracketing to make sure they got the perfect brightness level for their customers liking (or own ;).

Thank you so much Christel :D

The specs was 35mm or 50mm and I used 50mm.

either use a non-zoom or set your lens to 35 or 50mm only, camera to ISO100, and lets see something SOOC, no crop, no post pro, just like in the old days of film, or even use ISO100 film, mono or colour.

Very effective Thomas and nicely framed with the positioning of the solitary bee. Incidentally, I too used to shoot more often back in the day with ISO 200 than I ever did 100. How great it is nowadays to be able to flick between the various options at the flick of a switch! ;)

A little bleached out for my eye. I higher shutter speed could have helped, especially with a moving critter in the frame.
