Fons, lovely old photo, wether a copy or not! I have similar old photo from the same era! The young man at the back is my dad, we think it's from about 1915.

thank you Mike, cheers to your ancestry

Thomas, it doesn't look like you are struggling much... Great competition with those blobs of color.

Thanks, Paco!
I didn't dare to show the full flowering poppies. Couldn't get the color right, a certain saturated orange.
Seems there is a need to underexpose for great red / orange reproduction. About 1 , maybe be 1 1/3 stops. Like sometimes one needs to push +1 to 1.3 stop(s) for white.

It did happen to me too. I had to underexpose some orange flowers and de-saturated them in post as they were too much. I have shared some of them here already.

you can put it in the dishwasher als well as in the washuing machine (with the clothes). The stuff is really sturdy: https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Lego-Porsche-im-ADAC-Testzentrum-Das-spektakulaere-Crash-Video-3719981.html

I love the clarity and detail of the D500 with the 1.8/20g!
