Rudbeckia and the Steinheil Quarz Objektiv

So another try, today using that f1.8/50mm Steiheil Quarz Objektiv I was lucky to find some time ago. An Olympus E510 served as 10Mpix camera, used at ISO400 
and the shot was at f22.

As light source a 375nm UV LED was used plus that wonderful Baader 2" U filter to allow shots in daylight conditions. The image is unaltered except some modification of the white balance to allow for some sepia colors, which I currently find quite pleasant.

The second picture is a 1024pix crop from the above shot to demonstrate the nearly 3D resolution of that fabulous lens.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
