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

    Excellent photo - very very good, excellent processing, and overall excellent. I'd imagine she'd be very pleased with this.

  • 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!

  • You want some tea?

    Great shot - love the idea - but the green in the background and white label? distract slightly from the shot. Hope you don't mind my (hopefully) constructive input. Thanks Smile

    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.

    Thanks, I've just spotted the flame he is using. Smile I guess you lose that in black and white.

    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.
