    had great fun this afternoon with this cheap lens on my Pen F, all of these are out of camera JPGs (cropped square) with the creative dial Mono 2 setting (no grain), wide open its difficult to focus but its quite pleasing with this type of subject

    nice day out, though I think colour with cars is a main part of the attraction.

    To be honest I think that the mono shots suited the subjects more.

    Just one more example that you can't please all of the people all of the time. :D

    I agree - the mono emphasises the shape of the metal.

    Really?...All I can see is loudly coloured windbreak...;)

    Much prefer the mono versions, they are in line with the era of the vehicles. The colour ones feel like straight record shots even though they aren't. If you added a vintage/aged-print feel to the colour tones that might work better...

    now all I can see is a bloody windbreak!!

    I've just got myself photoshop so my first task will be get rid of both, wish me luck on that one, nothing like going in feet first

    I have put a "vintage" touch to them through lightroom, it was a preset just to see what they looked like, obviously not vintage enough so i'll have another play but for a £20 CCTV lens i'm pleased with them
