A few backyard shots with my 50mm f/1.4 Super-Takumar (non-SMC)
Posted By: wallyb, 08-11-2009, 01:19 PM

I just love the bokeh rendering and sharpness on this lens, so I thought I'd post a thread about it. This is the regular Super-Takumar m42 lens, not the SMC coated one. I'd also love to hear some CC on my postprocessing and shooting techniques, I'm always trying new things.

Nice ones Wally.
Beautiful colours, perhaps a little overexposed, though.
Depth of field is a little too shallow in most of these for my liking, but the bokeh is quite smooth.
Good effort.

Thanks again Ash They are indeed a little overexposed, there's no doubt about that, but that's because they were very high-contrast scenes (at the time), and I really wanted to light that foreground. I'm going to try taking them later at night so that there's lower contrast.
