    Springtime, New Love, A900 & Zeiss 135 f1.8

    Well, let's deal with the important thing first . . . . .
    Carlos arrived a week ago - he and Honey seem to have become pretty good friends:







    the first two were shot at f4, the last at f3.2

    Some chickens and crops
    f6.3


    and 100% crop






    and 100% crop






    and 100% crop



    Oops, the middle one isn't a chicken . . . it's Scott.

    Here's Emma's old bike:




    The point really is that I can't ever remember being enamored of a 135mm lens, but I think this is a real beauty. It's worth mentioning that there has been no sharpening on the crops.
    All processed in Aperture. Monochromes converted with Silver efex pro.

    Ahh, Jono, so you use Silver Efex Pro too? Good, is it not?

    That lens looks a cracker. Would be interesting to pitch it against the 85mm or 135 STF. My guess is they are all excellent.

    cheers

    Jono, as usual some cracking demo shots of what the Zeiss 135/Jono combo can produce>

    We will all be stony broke if you go on like this.

    Really love this shot, I think it's wonderful ! I take it Jono that there's a bit of you and a bit of Vivenza ?
    And that 135 lens seems to be an excellent match to the A900.
    Can't wait for the R10 ...





    BTW - I'll bet that bike is a Raleigh

    All the best.

    HI Quentin
    It's obviously time for another pint - we could at least do some Zeiss/STF comparisons . . . but time . . .

    Silver Efex is great - I seem to be using it for all my black and white stuff at the moment.

    Hi Bart
    Actually, that shot - just a very slight touch of shadow enhancement in Aperture, and that was it . . . . The a900 is very good for that kind of lighting. . . . .as for the R10

    The bike . . . I'll have to check, but now it's dark!

    Well, it's early days, and he's beginning to get a little more forceful . . he's not that keen on traffic either, but on the other hand, he's sweet and very responsive . . . . and my butt is getting better every day!

    You realise, it's taken Emma 25 years to get me on a horse, now we're going out every other day.
