Oh dear, I'm going to go against quote 1 and explain things, but agree with the other quote. Despite appearances to the contrary this is an outdoor shot which shows a large (Herring Gull?) birds filoplume feather caught in the dead head of an umbellifer. For the size of the subject matter the background was relatively distant and out of focus, but more importantly also relatively dark. Therefore by raising the contrast globally I was able to render the background as virtually black.

Russian Orthodox Church - The Holy Trinity Church

Bishop Nikanor from Tallinn baptized this church for services in 1827. He was the first Orthodox Bishop seen in Finland. This church is also the oldest church in Helsinki having regular services. This tells you something about the age of capital city Helsinki, compared to city of Turku which has Mother Church of Evangelist Lutheran Church of Finland. They say that Turku is newer established, it has always existed, and you guess which one is my hometown :D

Been shooting with a new lens today - pan 15
Probably something for another thread, but I am curious about your experiences. I started off with the 15 and 42.5 on my GX9, but found it hard to come to terms with the 15. For general use, I much prefer the 20, except in the AF department.

This Victoria Cross is outside the Abbey Gardens. To the right is the outline of one of the "Silent Soldiers". There is another shot from a different angle in the out takes
