Another in my series using my 1934 LEICA ll with the 1936 Leitz f2 Summar lens-- I use Shenfield Common as a 'Test Subject' for my cameras ! 1/200 @ f 6.3
That's got huge potential as an image, but as it stands I think it does show the inherent problem with older wide aperture lenses - lack of contrast due to internal reflections. So IMHO the options might be to go for soft colour or if sticking to black and white to extend development by 20% and print on a much harder grade of paper. If scanned, the contrast needs to be upped a fair bit.
It's definitely worth trying these things out, so I hope that you find these comments helpful.
Yes, and hallo John ! I left it more or less as it came out from the scan-- I did take a couple with a yellow filter but could not see any difference---- I agree it needs more contrast -- I have noticed my Acutol S mix has been giving softer negs lately-- may be oxidised in the bottle so I may ditch the remainder. See you on pentaxuser !
Oh Dear -- I was logged in as my BOY not as pentaxpete-- was looking at his photo comments !
