Just received Takumar 135mm/2.8 purchased from a fellow forum member. Took it out on street for test shots and subject was right there

I love the pp work - makes it look like it could be from 100 years ago. Of course the subject probably helps with that as well.
Very nice capture. Sometimes you just can't beat eing in the right place at the right time!

A stunning image - full of character and detail. The PP is great too - the subtle vignette enhances it perfectly.

Thanks for sharing!

Superb. Only thing constructive I could offer is to up the black point just a tiny bit. Fantastic image.

Wow, no learning curve for you on that one huh? Pinpoint perfect focus. Awesome composition. The perspective is dead on for how that shot should have been, well, shot lol. I really like it.

The only thing that detracts a bit to me is the watermark, which I understand why you placed it, but just kinda distracts me a bit. Maybe if you just had your name without the year and the copyright symbol that would help. It would probably look better if you scanned your signature into your computer and used that as a watermark. Would add to the authentic/very old feel to the work.
