    This could have gone in the Fun with Adapted Lens thread because:
    A. These are all taken with Voigtlander 50mm F2 Heliar Collapsable + Close Focus Adapter.
    B. It was fun.

    Also first time trying Rawtherapee raw converter (only beginning to find my way around that one).

    I was trying for a "soft, fresh, clean, simple" mood. Let me know if it works (or does not) for you.

    It rained for hours last night....

    Since you ask, I'm afraid they don't really work for me. First one has a nice sky indeed, but the foreground is too dark for me. The rest of the pictures look a bit dull and I have trouble to figure out where you want to draw attention too. More punchy post-processing I'd say and for the plant/flower pictures it helps if the subject is dead-on sharp. Some of them don't look really sharp and some have optimum sharpness at a place that doesn't appeal to me. Just my 2ยข.

    Ad and Nick, thank you. I see and understand what you are saying. This is very helpful to me. I have some clear goals now for improvement.
