The penclawdd wreck... 300 yards from the house... Sony a68.. Panagor 135mm f2.8 m42 lens .. 1/160th.. iso 100

This old lens only cost 20 quid but I had better results with this than the tamron sp 70-300... I'm gonna try and use these old lenses more often... Might challenge myself and put on the helios 44-2 and go out with only that lens... Should try it for astro actually..  The F2 on that is the fastest aperture lens I have

I just love this study bfb......a classic mono scene, beautifully processed and presented....if I could give you an Award here.....I would.

you may know that using vintage lenses is one of my favorite activities too.....I must have around 50 of all kinds, all from the best makers, allowing me to really challnge myself, in going out and about, in full manual mode. I have learned, with help’ about hyperfocal focusing by using the numbers engraved around all the old glass. ...get it right and it is quicker than any Auto-focus tech.

I am  now very confidant in my ability to capture pin-sharp Street pics....going fully manual, means being constantly aware of what you are shooting and why...I do miss a few shots because, a subject, may be out of the set range....but a quick flick to the Infinity setting can be very forgiving.

As seen in my recent post, featuring Bluebells, to be creative by composing a shot in the viewfinder, is a must.

More please!


i just wish that your pic were bigger.....perhaps you could posts it again so we see it larger please?
