Absolutely stunning photos/works of art... I've had a bottle of wine and am listening to The Knife's latest album (= genius!) and I have to say that your images are just ace.

Magnificent work, as usual, Ines.

Those Blue Frogs are snunning. Here in Australia frogs are so cryptic - you really have to look hard for them. And we don't have anything like a blue species. I gather the males only turn blue during the mating season.

How are you finding the SD1M?

Hi,

Yes, they are blue in the mating season. And only about a week..... Very short time only. Then I have to wait again for one year.

The SD 1? Hmmm... We were not the best of friends from the start....

But now we photograph well together. I find it difficult with the exposure, I missed the ISO 50 and I could not use at the beginning my M 42 lenses. But my problems are solved. Apart from ISO 50 but that is ok. And ISO 100 is ok with adequate exposure. And the quality of photos and many details are great. I like my SD 1.

Many thanks!

Greetings,

Ines
