A Chili plant, taken at a 1.8ish meter distance with an old 500mm mirror lens (http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1056&message=41661512) mounted on my digital Olympus E-500. This makes it an effective 1000mm (1m) lens at f/8, add ND filters at the mount end to 'stop it down', no aperture adjustment, it is fixed at f/8. So this test worked out very nicely.

This is a monochromatic 'orange filter' conversion of the color one for #monochromemonday   #macromonday     #dofmonday  

exposure was 2.5s, f/8, ISO 100, 1000mm, available light only, with more greenery further out, east side of house

Cool!  Love that bit of light lighting up the fuzz on the underside of the leaf.  
 
Thanks +Kelli Seeger Kim this has extreme shallow depth of field so will be quite cool to play with. Imagine a real 1 meter long lens! ;) but only weights about half a kilo and is around 25cm long with it's hood, so 12 without.
