Assorted images
Posted By: roentarre, 05-16-2008, 08:24 PM

Like many of the photographers, I have taken far too many images but not yet processed them in my own spare time.

Sort of going through some older images, I discovered some shots that are just fun to keep, not beautiful enough but not too bad to be deleted either.

So here are few shots. Feel free to throw in your first impression of the shots.

Da* 16-50





Voigtlander 40mm f2



Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f1.4



A* 50mm f1.2



Da* 16-50 (severe backfocusing)

Mate,

If I shot those, they would all be on my wall!!

The two standouts (emotive response, not technical evaluation) for me where the first and seventh images of assorted three.

The lighting of the lady in the market is just great.

Wow; just wow!

Your photography never ceases to impress me, James. You say those photos are unprocessed? The fisheye shot exhibits some killer fringing.

As ever, I can't decide which one is better. The voigtlander lenses and the limiteds have an almost magical quality to them.

Nice work James! Is there a lens you don't own? I am very jealous.

I really don't have a favourite, I enjoyed all of them.

You have a real knack for spotting just the right angle to produce a pleasing and interesting image.

Thanks for sharing.

Have I ever mentioned that your food shots make me horribly hungry?

You've got the touch - or I should say "eye", James. The first picture in series #1 is arresting, but all are terrific. I really dig the boats under the bridge (I forget which series).

There are some great keepers there indeed. I enjoy the 31ltd shots damn ... I want a 300mm before the 31 but who knows. I like the FE shot but I am very partial to that lens one of my favorites. Very nice variey of macros,landscape, random and candid street shots nice eye.

With your 16-50 backfocusing have you sent it in ? Sometimes I think mine does as well others times it seems fine - so far I blame it on the operator error I do like it though.

These are terrific photos. I too really liked the landscapes with the 31mm Limited, but that probably shows my bias!

That shot was ruined by the foreground where these two ladies were not that photogenic. I took at least 50 shots inside that shrine and only this one really stood out.

Sometimes, it was just hard to get everything right in a candid.

Thanks for taking time to comment

Dan, I am sure you are capable of producing better shots than mine. I feel that my photo quality is going downhill snce I have adopted the snapping shot style (happy go lucky that kind of thing) instead of going for prudent composition.

These days, I enjoy candids. So it is all luck dependent.

Limited lenses are in deed joy to use. I personally think that these lenses were appreciated a lot more back then because all the fa limited lenses were out of stock for around 1 year or so. I paid premium prices at the time and was so meticulous in searching these little gems. When I received the lenses, they were just my babies.

If the lenses came too easily, I would have given them harsh criticism regardless. It is like with A* 200mm f4 macro, it took me about 2 years to start criticising it
