Bike at the Mummelsee
Contest Number: 159 Contest Theme: Open Lens: Takumar 1.8/55mm Camera: Pentax Spotmatic Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: Peter Bermes, 11-02-2019, 04:58 AM

The old Takumar 1,8/55 mm lens to me is still one of the best as one can see here in this casual shot of a motorbike I've seen parked at the 'Mummelsee' in the Black Forest, South Germany: Almost 3D in Depth as far as color layers are concerned and almost no early picture rushing whatsoever while enlarging...

Hi, this foto was taken with a Fujichrome Film of 100 ASA, the digital transformation was made by a professional local company called 'Fachcolor' in Hochdorf near Freiburg i.Br., Germany, they utilize the latest Drumscanners, which outperform any other services I'd known so far in 20 years. (No way to expect that kind of quality from your local drugshop automats ;-) If you want the address, though it's not a cheap service plus postage, just let me know.... Thanks Peter
