Contax G 21/2.8 at f8~11

Film: Fuji Press 400

Crop: no

Remark: Tuned contrast, masked the right, pulled some curves.

At the time, I thought the strong contrast between the light and shadow was interesting, but I also knew at the time that the shadow portion was too plain. I turned the contrast up in Photoshop, but masked the right to retain the shadow details. The most interesting is that this picture is very close to how I remember the actual scene, the silhouette of the people against the bright background prevented me from seeing their faces, but the people in the large shadow was clear. I especially remember the old photographer standing there.

Weekdays afternoon at TST. This picture would have been impossibly crowded if it was during the weekend. The Zeiss Optics delivers quality quite different from Nikon. Corner sharpness and distortion aside, the Zeiss renders colour differently. I think the community refers to it as ” Zeiss”. Anyways, like the old saying, ‘f8 and be there’, I doubt the picture would have turned out too differently if it was shot with a 20/2.8 AI-s instead, especially when it was stepped down to f8.

MILKY WAY AGAIN

After extensive massaging in photoshop….
This photo is more blue than the first one. No comment on the accuracy of the color of ou ga@axy, but a shift tobyellow makes a better contrast to the black night sky IMO.
