A photo of Burrator Reservoir taken with a 1937 Zeiss Ikon 515/2 Medium Format folding camera. This was my first roll of film through this camera...bit different from my D200 !!
The original print shows far better detail than this scanned image. Not too bad for a 70 year old camera that could do with a service!
No ps work at all carried out.

Good effort with an old camera. I have always loved this viewpoint above the quarry.
The image has reminded me that I haven't been to Burrator for quite some time. Will have to rectify that soon.

steve, not bad for an assessment shot, the old lass seems to have passed her test with flying colours.

I want to do b/w landscapes with my digital cameras, but this image shows me up as a beginer, even against a 70 year old camera.
