Have the photo with dark periphery

I took these pictures of my superprogram and takumar 35F2. The foam of this camera is not in good-condition.
The film was Fuji velvia 100. I found the side of these photos are darker. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Lens vignette? What f/stop are you using?

Photoshop has a lens correction filter that allows you to counteract vignetting (or, more creatively, manipulate the vignetting)

Was the first photo taken with a polarizer by any chance? That may explain the uneveness in the water and sky.

As for #2, I would suspect light leak. Does the bright spot extend out of the frame area of the slide?

Thanks for ur reply.
1 I forgot the actual aperture I used. But it is probably f5.6. I had a very cheap UV filter on top of the lens. Any chance it was caused by the UV filter?
2 No, the bright spot seems to only exist in the frame.

Well, that is all very strange. If your camera had a horizontal-run shutter, I would point to that as the cause of the dark right side.

As near as I can tell, shot No.2 has nothing really wrong with it.
It looks like were shooting into the sun (or nearly) and the camera metered of the darker foreground which would over expose the sky a fair amount and then there is possible some flare coming from the bright sky.
The dark portion of the building (upper left) appears to me to be shadow caused by the buildings eave/roof.
As for the first shot, could be caused by the UV filter, it almost looks like something you might get with a polarizer. Could it be that you were shading the lens with your hand?

After I threw away that UV only costs me $3, I found the problem solved...
Thanks for your reply!
