Tubes... Not As In People Of Limited Intelligence
Posted By: Kerrowdown, 06-29-2016, 01:55 PM

More the normal sort of "Kerrowdown at play" imagery, still can't get over how sharp/detailed this K1 can be, on the original DNG file you can clearly read the stencilled writing on that centre tube.

Stunning picture.

I played around with the screen of my laptop ...to alter the contrast...and I was impressed with the changing contrast, the composition...and actually myself for coming up with this idea of altering the contrast.

Aside from my nonsense...this is an exceptional photograph (composition) and in my view, a wallhanger.

Thanks... this image has quite strange luminosity and dynamic range about it, it blends itself to tweaking about, this was just my version.

Awesome shot. Parts of it look like it could be a drawing by M. C, Escher,

But it did make me think of Tube Alloy!. Maybe because I just finished reading a book called "Winston's War".

I just hate giving you a like because so many of your images are deserving but this one is really a standout. It hurt my heart. So, I gave it a like and I really want to give it another one.

Give a shout out to Tony Northrup re; old lenses don't perform, maybe better kept a secret. Great abstract and 3D effect.

Aye and this was hand held at 1/60s, a tripod theoretically could have made even better maybe.
