My Contax needs some shutter CLA, sometimes it works fine and other times... These aren't photoshopped, except to the extent I toned down the burnt in lower left corner.


TMAX 100 in HC-110, Contax IIIa, Sonnar 50/2
Those first look like they could be older than the camera.

I took this a few weeks ago. The lighting was somewhat terrible for this location, bright sunny day with the foreground in shadow and the trees in full sun, but after driving 1 1/2 hours to get here, you take what you're given.
I tried some digital dodging and burning for the first time and I think it helped, though I still need practice at it.

Colton, looking at your pics, I wish I'd bought a 67 instead of a 645... as it turns out, I don't schlep the 645 around as much as I thought I would, and given the size and vintage look factor, I'd probably use the 67 much more. Plus, if I attained 1/2 your capability with the camera, I'd be mighty pleased.

Wow, it so dynamic, love the bright bright brights and the dark darks.

I like it, Colton. Beyond my capabilities at the moment, but inspiring.

Where was this taken. It looks familiar.

Thanks guys.

Jussi, I've used a 645n a bit and other than the AF and AE, I would pick my 67 over it any day. The image size definitely make a much bigger difference with the 67 and with the WLF, it's really not that much bigger than the 645n w/ 45-85 zoom.

This is on the side of Hwy. 62 on the way to Crater Lake, just past Union Creek.

Thought so. It has been almost 20 years, but I do remember the place.

I agree, nice one Colton, and interesting name for the lake, must have some history.

Colton, I don't like this shot. I mean, with your river shot above, I can console myself with the fact that you were shooting MF and you would expect fantastic image quality but with this one, you are shooting 35mm with an average body and lens and you still get a great shot. I'm running out of excuses why your shots are so good and I'm starting to consider the possibility that you might actually know what you are doing. Keep them coming

Thank you Vendee.
I suppose it won't help when I say this was composed blind, by holding the camera vertically down near the ground.
Better lucky than good, as they say.
