    Every few days I roast coffee for myself. Toward the end of the roast cycle, this happens and is the reason I roast coffee outdoors.

    Yummy, balanced composition with the two bright cloudlike shapes in the upper corners.

    Me, too. Once a week I roast. I love the smell and it's impossible to beat the flavor of the super-fresh, quality beans at a City/Full City roast!

    I decided to repeat this with the 55mm Sonnar f/1.8. I had not used it near MFD before. This lens simply never disappoints. Anyway, I tried two different crops, one with the roaster included, and one abstract with only smoke. Which looks better: With Roaster or Only Smoke?

    great capture. I think with roaster tells more of a story - can almost smell the coffee. How close were you?

    I did not measure. About 0.5 meter (about 18 inches) I guess. Maybe an inch or two closer... This image is cropped a bit, mostly for composition purposes, though. It is not really zoomed much at all. That black handle on the top of the rooster is about 5 cm (2 inches) wide.

    #1 with roaster. I need a reason for the smoke. Smoke is cool but just want to know it's now the beginning works of a structure fire.:wink:
