I think that June is a great month for shooting the "Milkyway".
Last night, me and two friends went southeast of Athens, to cape Sounio, to photograph the milkyway one more time.
It was a great opportunity to try new, different techniques. The image below is a little vertical pano of two horizontal frames. The frame with the foreground is a stacked image of 5 frames of 4minute exposure @ f/5.6 iso 1600. The frame with the milkyway is a stacked image of 25 frames of 13sec exposure @ f/2.8, iso 3200. All images were taken with the Nikkor 20mm f/2.8 ai-s on Nikon D700. The stacks were done in sequator. Final blending and touch in Ps.

I'm engrossed in my aquatic plant project and currently  there is little time for posting here on NG.

A small crop of the full frame of Z7 with the Laowa 25mm f/2.8 "Ultra-Macro" lens, at 4X magnification to show the nectarium ("honey pot") of the honey leaves (petals) of Ranunculus peltatus, Water Crowfoot. Stacked using Stackshot and Zerene.

The Laowa lens is surprisingly good and considered its moderate price, a "steal" for anyone into photomacrography.

June 28.  Senecio cineraria?  Jacobea maritima?

Interesting through the monochrome backdrop!

Thank you, Frank.  The overcast sky and the featureless buildings seem to function as a fitting backdrop for the flowers.

Interesting, worth checking out, thank you.
May hope you have a worthwhile project.

Very nice image and good BW conversion.
My old 35mm f2 is with out the C, but I like it, very sharp.
