Nice shots, Bill... and it must be raining everywhere...I have been experimenting with the M8 + Zeiss 28mm - (as a one camera one lens combo) - as producing close up from the 28mm. The lens is so good that the easiest way for me to do this is by 100% crops.
1st image is the crop
2nd image is the original from which the crop was made
PS - it's still raining!!!
