Contest Something special about that lens - round 5 - NIFTY 50

As long as we are not voting on skills, I am game. :)


My favorite 50 entry, the ST 50 f/1.4, 7 element - radioactive, untreated. This is one of my most favorite of my 50's simply due to the thorium lens being yellowed by radioactivity and produces a pleasant bokeh.

I chose this lens attached to my K-S2 to capture this rusty old truck as I felt that this particular lens would emphasize the rustiness, the different colored metals as well as a feeling of nostalgia. Shooting during the golden hour enhanced the characteristic of this lens even more.


Only edits in PS were to very slightly sharpen and slightly dehaze the image, no other edits were made to the DNG file prior to resizing to fit contest size requirements and save as a jpg.

With my K-S2, I didnít have very much of an issue with reds but with my K-1, itís def an issue. I have checked to make sure all settings match on each camera up to what the K-S2 can create but for some reason, the reds differ, with the K-1 tending to having more magenta in the reds.

Thanks so much! Iíve struggled this past week to get this and for me, the white of the Lilly kept being blown out. But I kept at it and this is the best from todayís excursion into my neighborís garden. Whites and reds always seem to kick my rear end the most.

Just to verify that I understand the rules correctly, a 50mm Macro lens is not eligible in this, correct?
And this can be any brand of 50mm lens?

Their eyes always have intrigued me. As a kid, I would catch them gently and just stare very closely at their eyes.

I love this little vintage lens on my K-1! I have been learning how to use it for a year now.

Capturing white flowers is difficult for me but I finally captured something Iím very pleased with as I learn more and more. This is the jpg (I have the RAW file saved), that I tweaked the exposure a tiny bit in mobile LR as well as a few other very minor adjustments. These Lillies are in a neighborís garden and some plants are well over 6í tall.

I have a question for those of you who use this lens, should I set my Input Focal Length to 55 or 50 when using this lens? I captured this with the IFL set to 50 and Aperture Priority.

This was taken with an Amitar enlarger lens, 90mm f/4.5, on my K-S2. First time using an enlarger lens. I have a lot to learn about using the lens. I like trying different things. The violet was very tiny and covered in dew.

I have one and my plan is to use it after flowers start blooming. It came in a box of “old camera stuff” off of FBMP. Looks like it’s never been used.
