This was an interesting shot to make. I wanted a nice closeup of my pinewood derby car and was trying out all sorts of different lens and adapter combinations. To get this shot, I ended up using the 70-200mm lens with a 1.4x extender and 68mm worth of extension tubes. I barely crammed the entire car into the frame. I used an f/32 aperture and a 20 second exposure, and am very pleased with the results.
I received mine 16 days ago, 14 days ago I had a concussion and then PCS to follow and am now just starting to return to regular life without debilitating pain. One of the things I look forward to is using this amazing lens!
Despite all the help being given today, more needs to be done. We who have family in the hardest hit areas of the Philippines are most grateful for the tangible help being given to everyone around the world.
We just entered the monsoon season and more typhoons are expected to start arriving on an almost weekly basis. We pray for your help when the need arises again.
