Did a little practice with the a6400, adapter and Minolta 50mm.
I am reminded that manual focus isn't much fun when the breeze is blowing, and also that this setup doesn't have a very close focusing distance... but it was still fun practice.

And yet, my favorite was the least "technically correct" image, motion blur like crazy, but it almost seems like a painting...

Looks like a little bit of lost details in the full sun area's but what do we expect from a white flower in this situation.
I know an Aussie forum where they would make a big deal of this but I can see it for what it is.
Well done on them all.

I understand, I need to shoot with the zebras on more often to make sure I don't blow out the highlights (I think I told you in another thread this is my personal kryptonite LOL).
