Basic colour image, followed by the B&W version (Nik SEP2) that ended up making the final BLENCOMO image....I just did a few finishing touches on layers with curves/burning/dodging.
I have mostly been lurking around the forums but I have really enjoyed looking at all the great pictures in this thread. Here are two landscape pictures I took in the summer.

Happy new year to everyone!
I had some beautiful days in the swiss mountains. This time without snow even on 2000 m altitude. Something that happens very rarely in winter.

Welcome to the thread Suntrip I paricularly like your 2nd image...nice one ....Hope to see more from you.
Doug, you are obviously enjoying your new A7RII together with your 90mm FE Macro...Good to have you back here once again my friend ;-)
seb...Annna’s choice of those 3 images was also my choice... Night in Sufers/Pizzo Tambo/Hinterrhein was my in order of favourite sequence.
Jose...Some of the best shots that I have seen to date from the Batis 85mm...Beautiful OoF rendering in the (Middle) 3rd image and the 4th was well seen...Excellent!

Two pictures from a hiking trip in Jotunheimen in August. Taken with Sony A7r and the FE35 2.8. This is a really nice hiking combo.

Re: The Wheal Coates Tin Mines connection to Poldark.
Film Locations Poldark (TV Series 2015â€“ ) - Filming Locations - IMDb
I don't believe those ones actually were...The mines that you may have seen on the Cornish coast in the TV (2015 Poldark) series to my memory are the Crown Tin Mines down at Botallack, Nr. St Just towards the tip of Cornwall, some 35 miles South West of Wheal Coates...Those I have photographed a couple of times previously, a most beautiful spot that I love dearly.
First shot up (Botallack)...I have not shown here before Nex-5N 50mm Zeiss ZM Planar taken and processed about 3 years ago...But all others are more current A7R images etc.

Checking out a new AF adapter from Fringer for my Contax N lenses. I previously tried both Kipon from Adorama (two copies) that is MF only and unreliable and Daofeng from HK which has better construction, but also MF only and better reliability only with the 24-85, unreliable with the 70-200. The Fringer MK III provides both AF and MF and more important it has reliable performance w/o the freezing behavior of the other adapters.
An outdoor landscape shot with the 24-85:
An indoor snap of a 20x24 inch B&W gallery wrap print with the 70-200 on the A7r that I made today using the iPF6100 and TrueB&W RIP.

This is known locally as "The Giants House" It is better known throughout Cornwall as "Trethevy Quoit".
This well-preserved and impressive Neolithic 'Dolmen' burial chamber stands 2.7 metres high. There are five standing stones, surmounted by a huge capstone.
Recent excavations showed that this type of megalith was erected in the Neolithic period between 3700-3500 BC and such megaliths were used over a long period of time as community graves. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trethevy_Quoit
Personally I find it remarkable that it has survived all these years! Especially when you consider that work commenced on Stonehenge in 2600 BC and the oldest Egyptian pyramid (Step Pyramid of Djoser) dates back to around 2700 BC, this is quite feasibly nearly a thousand years older!
I took this image late this afternoon (processed normally).

Playing with Pictorialism again – first in sepia and then in pastel tones that might suggest a fading Autochrome?
BTW, I had a chance to view 20 or so Pictorial prints today at the de Young Museum's Jewel City exhibit, drawn from the art shown at the 1915 SF World's Fair (the Pan Pacific International Exhibition). I didn't realize how dark they all were. And how hard it must have been to print them Just Right. It was surprising to see early Weston and Cunningham working in this tradition along with Annie Brigman and the other usual Pictorial suspects. Stieglitz and some others weren't represented, though – they boycotted the exhibition because photography was classified as an 'industrial art.'

PS, I would like the foregrounds and backgrounds to be even more out of focus – but would I have to buy a Noctilux for this?

Looking on the Internet I found a lens from China for Sony called the Mitakon - 50mm f0.95. This would offer shallower DOF, but there's little said about it here on DPI Sony threads. Folks here must have very high technical standards - no threads for Holga, either.
Yeah, but Search can't find 'em – says look at all 149 pages
Might like to try 35 Nokton 1.2 too....

Thanks, all! You've been very helpful and I'm now saturated with favorable information!
I was surprised, as were the original posters, that DOF no longer seems shallow after 5 meters.
Will look right away for a used one....

Good luck Kirk. I actually like my copy. I have the second version and my copy seems very well built. It's certainly heavier and larger than the Leica Summilux ASPH.
The hood is a little bit fiddly to get on. But once it's on tight, it requires a lot of force to take it off. I have done it, but prefer to keep the hood on permanently.
With best regards, K-H.

There is a beautiful park behind the hospital here, where patients are encouraged to walk and get some exercise. And we had our first light snow...

There is a jasmin growing at a crossing nearby. The first sprouts showed up in November. At Christmas it was in full blooms. And those blooms are still there in spite of a first snow. If things go on like this, we are going to have two blooming seasons even in the Alps, so I had to take at least one picture of this before freezing times.
