    Just f16 and a slowish swirl while shooting a bowl of three oranges.​

    Leica Q2. I had this camera for sale with Ffordes for months, but no sale. I asked for it back, and thought I'd give it another go. Hmm...I could do with the money from a sale, but this is one beautiful camera!

    The subtleness of the first with those colours is great Rob.

    Cheers, Wes. I'm very pleased with the subtleness you mention. With these shots you either get lucky or you don't. I got lucky this time.

    Interesting pictures, I like them, just missing sausages and bacon. :D

    Sunny side up! (American expression for a type of fried egg.) Those are not oranges! They are, however, very compelling foties.

    I was surprised at them myself. I’m hoping the James Webb telescope comes up with something similar, convinced as I am that we are all germs spilling over from God’s fruit bowl :D It’s true, you know. I had a vision! He just forgot it was there. And here we are. If you send me £1,000 I’ll let you join my army.
