Experimental work: Guiness photography

I've been wanting to try digital pinhole photography and having found a spare body cap for my SLR a can of Guinness was required to make the 'lens' (for the non Guinness drinkers, the part of the can you use is the black area so one can will make plenty of pinholes). The third attempt produce a reasonable lens with exposures from about 1.5 - 20 seconds at 100 ISO. I'd heard that you could use the priority settings but on the Olympus this did not work except in bright light so manual and test images were required as I forgot my exposure meter to calibrate the aperture.

The images are on my Apple at the moment but will hopefully get them across to the PC to put on the blog.
