Very nice photo, however, I personally would have preferred a bit more detail in the skin.

Clown with a heart by Petemoyes

Clown with a heart

That's quite disturbing! I like it! The foreground and the wall seem to blend into one, and it almost seems as though the debris on the ground is part of the graffiti!

Lucy Shoot by joshwa

Lucy Shoot

Smile Thanks for the comments - the biggest motivator for me in using some of these old lenses for portraits is that I've been able to pick up an Olympus 50mm f/1.4 OM lens and a Minolta 58mm f/1.4 Rokkor lens for 5 each (some results from the 58mm lens here). Certainly makes them much more attainable, compared to a modern day version of the lens, for example the recent 58mm f/1.4 lens released is around 1600!

Another aspect I'm looking at is lens flare - where the model actually likes the look of it - and with modern lenses they tend to do everything possible to avoid lens flare. I haven't uploaded any recent examples or really got any shots (yet) that particularly demonstrate that, but it's something that I'm hoping will look good Smile

edit - the Helios lens came with a Zenit camera that I probably picked up for around 5.

The Hermitage, near Perth by joshwa

The Hermitage, near Perth


Quote: Wow, amazing colours and light. Its beautiful. Is this tweaked at all?

Hi, not a lot, I just warmed it up a little bit to make it look more like the scene I remembered. I may have increased the contrast slightly.
I've added the original into the D7100 review.

I like it, but being familiar with the location Wink I think the scale looks a bit wrong.
