first pictures with old Takumar lenses on K200D
Camera: K200D Photo Location: Hartford, Connecticut 
Posted By: Violet, 03-27-2010, 11:47 AM

Some time ago I inquired about how to go about using 3 old lenses of my father's - the Super-Takumar f3.5/135mm, a Super-Takumar 1:1.4 / 50 and a Fish-Eye-Takumar 1:11 / 18. I haven't finished reviewing and cropping all the pictures from the first outing with the lenses but I thought that I'd share some as I get them done. These were taken as part of a Connecticut Flicker Meetup group outing at the Cedar Hill Cemetery in Hartford, CT. The Flickr group has an agreement to shoot the cemetery (very large, old and picturesque) on 1 day in each season and then to put together a photo exhibit from the best shots. Here's my fall and winter shots, though not all with the old lenses.

Enjoy.

No, it's not. The only post processing I did was to saturate some of the blue in the water so that it looked like there was water as opposed to all white with the faintest shade of blue in the ripples. I debated on whether or not do even that. It was a very grey day.

Here they are basically untouched ... just did some cropping and added a border on the one so you could see where it actually starts. It's stunning blown up on a monitor with a black background.
