    Default Lion head

    Not long ago I have engraved a portrait of lion in a stainless steel plate. Little more than an inch in diameter.
    Picture taken with a very old Micro Nikkor 50mm and a Nikon AI to Micro-Four-thirds adapter. Worked amazingly well, actually better than with a new Olympus Pro lens.

    Beautiful work Martin, love the snarl. You mentioned steel plate so it is a practice plate for a gun project?

    Hi Roger, oops...... I do them all the time and forget others don't need to.

    Hi Martin, no offense intended. I don't know how to do the smiley face stuff but I would insert an embarrassed one if I could...
