Prime Lens - Focal Length Equal Human Eye 1/2

Challenge #16 in the Who Knows... series. Hosted by blosshapperter.
Challenge has finished
Show me your very best picture using a prime length equivalent to human eye (43 mm AFAIK). A normal prime lens was usually 40-55mm on "full frame" SLRs - in practice, it was most commonly 50mm supplied as a "kit" lens On medium format film cameras (6x6 and 6x4.5 cm) normal lenses were usually 75 or 80mm On APS-C cameras say 28mm to 35mm. On m4/3 say 17-27mm (17 may be a bit low but there are nice lenses out there) Aperture (F stop) and DOF (depth of field) shouldn't matter, but I expect some beautiful examples of (very) narrow depth of field. Please do confine to available light (no flash) and leave any macro shots in the drawer.

Normally the light at midday is too harsh. Also green leaves against a blue sky do not stand out. So I put on an infrared filter to make the leaves look white.
