Rosebud shots are very popular so it's hard to make a standout shot. But you've done that here! Really beautiful.

I second that. I just saw another excellent flower shot of yours in Ektar in another thread, and was amazed at how good it was. Like this one, it was almost entirely free of film grain and looked very digital in that respect.

M 50mm 1.7 Test shot

I don't use this lens enough. This is an awesome lens and I've taken some of my best photographs with it. I guess I got hooked on the autofocus bug and put this gem in my other camera bag. This is just an example of what this lens can do but I guess you already know this . This second shot is a very close crop of the original image. I think this lens could do very well as a product lens. If you don't have one in your kit. GET ONE NOW!

A couple of sunset pics from yesterday, though I missed the best colours. These are stitches of around nine photos each, with the results being around 36MP each. Taken with the M 100/2.8 at f/5.6 or f/4. Photobucket won't let me upload them any larger.

Great series with some crazy colours, were these shot on film?

Thanks. No, although I did have a Spotmatic and a Zenit, none of the tripod work was done on film. Reciprocity failure can be almost as time consuming as DFS. I used my girlfriend's K-r, because somehow, it skips the dark frame at the end of the exposure.

Very nice series, kcobain1992. Me too, I like the colours. Did you post processed those?

Here is a shot with M35/2 at f8 I think. I love the colours rendered by this lens. Gives a film effect.

Not always, at least for me.

Well, I always do, sometimes I end with crap like picture #7, which looks a lot worse than the in-camera JPEG. But working 100% of the time with stop-down metered lenses, I sometimes find the need to repair exposure problems at home (and I always forget the WB at the wrong setting).
One more from the M28:
