Autumn colors - old glass is a good glass
Posted By: andrei46, 10-26-2007, 05:23 AM

Hi all!
I was yesterday in a park with an old Flektogon lens. Please see some results.
Please critics and comments if you consider!

Nice colours Andrei,

If you don't mind me asking, what lens did you use?

Love automn colors.
some CR>
1: no clear subject, no lines, bit low contrast, boring foreground
2: not bad, good idea. could probably have been done better but its of the two better shots from this group
3: background! the walking path should not be there
4: foreground leaves distracing from main subject, busy background even though its oof
5: not technically bad, just no clear subject/focus point
6: very nice red color, but too busy
7: again very nice color and good sharpness, one of the two best from this group. but its still too busy.

think simple, keep your subject in mind, if its a landscape shot then look for leading lines or patterns.

enjoy alle the lovely colors of autumn

Stu, I used an over 30 years old Carl Zeiss Jena lens (made in former GDR) Flektogon 2.4/35.
Thanx Roentarre, but the colors are too vivid, like right critics from Andreas.
Thankx Andreas! You are right in ALL your points. I left this lens unused for a long time and I took it in a kind of test. I post the picture mainly in order to see the results of an old lens. But not only .... and you help me.
All other critics are wellcome!
Cheers to all!

I'd love to own a lens like that Andrei, and now I know how you were able to obtain the wonderful colors.

I'm looking forward to seeing your next round of photos.
