    Say cheescake and look out Irakly! Love the classic 40's look from the lens and the processing Helen --- very nice.

    Tres chic!
    great effect with that processing, also the crop is interesting, although one I would not have tried (probably)

    Love the look

    Reminds me of my Dad's shots while in Japan in the late 50's and early 60's. The colors, and crop are almost a double to his style.
    Good work. When can we see more?

    lens is obviously lovely, but could legs be any longer than that?

    Well Irakly I'm giving you some competition in the self portrait realm....

    Thanx Jim & Charles....
    and Charles I love the old 35 elmar
    they draw quite differently , very sharp & with dominant B&W tones
    harder edge but i think I might be heading in that direction (bad for portraits though better for the nitty,griity of life)

    Best to All.... Helen

    I like to think of miself more as a lens colector than an adict. When I was small I had a grate colection of matches that my brother used to diminish to lightup his cigarret's. Now you have me thinking of the 35elmar.

    Choices, choices, a 35 Elmar or the Summaron.

    it is more AND than OR.

    35/3.5 , 35/2.8 , 35/2 , 35/1.4 & ? you go forwad in time as the lens has more light.

    I am starting to sound like Einstein.
