My new 2.8/150mm. Colours not yet spot on (scanning)



Testing my Macro lens

This was just to test a new lens, but there's something about it that I like (A 120mm Macro again).
Don't see the photos....

Going a little over the top with post processing The orange filter didn't darken the sky as much as shown, and wanted, so I helped it out in the graphics editor. I locally increased the contrast on the dead tree a bit too much too.

Pretty cool shot, tuco. As you say, the graduated effect is probably a bit too much but otherwise impressive.

I am chasing this guy with 645N lately (FA 150mm F2.8, Neopan 400, yellow filter):

Nice! But maybe back off a tiny bit on that PP (as you say) and it'll be even more impressive.

You could try masking etc so you can concentrate pp on the sky vs. the tree. Hint: if you do this via a levels or curves layer, dup it and invert: you now can work on everything else. As long as you use a very soft brush and taper things you can get a pretty good unobtrusive results.


Digital slide - that's an excellent shot with the 150 - this lens maybe gets us closest we can to that magic 6x7 DOF look.

When you see people selling photos at a street fair and what-not, they all are pretty much over the top with popping colors and exaggerated reality. That is what it takes to sell to the public. Shinny, pretty things sell, lol. We see the PP but the general public doesn't. That shot and extra sharpening was for a print for someone else.

Nesster, I have no experience with the 6x7 format but I like the 150mm more and more. The combination of focal length, perspective and bokeh might be at play. Here is another one with it (same roll and a bit of cropping):

Yes - this is why I bought the 150 as well, though I've only used it on a wrecked Mustang so far.
Another great kid pic!

I've been able to rectify this (I think). I can see them now, let me know if you cannot. I repost it here while deleting the old post:
Still learning scanning techniques, but here are some of my first results with the P645 (and P645N):

My new 2.8/150mm. Colours not yet spot on (scanning) but the sharpness is intentional. Scaned with the Screen Cezanne but, well, I just got it.
Can't think of such a photo in 135mm film
Cropped, in Amsterdam (I need a lens hood)
Testing my Macro lens, still in Amsterdam.
My favourite so far, although this scan can still be improved (and cropped).
Old scanner, first pic. Immediately sold me on the 645. Scan can be better, this was the Epson 4490. I now scan with the Screen CÚzanne, but my technique is, well, is not. Not yet. There.

Nope, not me.

EDIT:

Okay, now I'm seeing them.
