Philippe, Wilhelm, thank you for the comments! Most appreciated!

Wilhelm, that shot is very nice, the rendering of the 28/2.8 on BW film is beautiful, and there is some 3D going on too. Don't mind the grain, that's what shooting film is about Your friend looks like Viggo Mortensen btw.

Edward Thank you. Nice portrait with interesting shimmering bokeh.

Wilhelm - Nice portrait as well. To me, it's like a frame from a noir movie.

Z - Creepy... Nice composition and portrait.

hiepphotog - Thank you. No I have not. I have not been successful with HDR. They all turned very bad. PS HDR is not working too well for me. I also tried other trial version, but did not have patience to achieve satisfying result. May be next year.
On your set. I like the color rendition of your shots. #1, #3, #4 are my favorites.

Edward - Nice portrait. Pretty good for high ISO at 2500 too. ( Though I notice some interesting noise in the dark area, but that did not bother me )

Lieutenant - Thanks. And your shot is pretty funny / creepy. Well done.


Carsten - Thanks. I am looking forward to see your shots with D800. I don't know when, but I will get one some time in the future.

Wilhelm - Very nice. Film gives a very interesting look to the portrait. I agree with Edward, grain is part of the picture.

Ronny - I like the kitchen theme. Apple's texture looks great. So as the wet and sharp stainless steel knife, and the play with reflections.

Hiepphotog, Luka, thanks for your comments.

Philippe, nice dramatic closeup shot. Perfect exposure.

Hiepphotog, nice series again. The kid at window shot is superb. B&W would have also been very effective.

Ronny, love the knife and onions shot.

Luka, nice urban set again. Did you ever consider converting to B&W? 2 and 3 would also look good in greyscale, even though in color they are equally as powerful.

Ronny, Luka, Edward, and rirakuma Thank you for the comments. Much appreciated.

Ronny - I love your first apple shot; the combination of the sharpness, the light and the color really has that warm and cozy touch to it. I would like some of my food pictures, especially a bowl of stew, to take on something like this.

Edward - I tried B&W on that kid picture, but it didn't work for me (the blond hair and the color of outside...)

Luka - Nice series

Ronald - Like the shot. Seeing the wide gradient in lighting, this could benefit from HDR.

Thank you Z, johnahill and flypenfly

Johnahill- a beautiful capture. I love the color contrast on the sky. The Zeiss 21 is at its best here.

Flypenfly - I'm looking to get one as well. It was a mistake to let this one go.

Nixland - interesting last shot. The ZE 28 is a nice lens, too bad the focal doesn't work for me.

Thanks kind people, Z, edward, hiepphotog & akul. Yes, film is very special and I am just getting acquainted with it.

hiepphotog, totally agree with rirakuma on that market shot, it's well hidden secret centered of screen due to the enormous and blurry wing shot, but I keep looking at the details and it grows on you and is simply amazing.

Ronny, now you're playing with photoshop, right? (Global knife). Love to see where this leads to :-)

- - - - -

Here's another film shot, again that -64 Volvo. Contax S2 and Contax 28/2.8. For those interested this is TMAX400 (an "ISO400" film). It is scanned as a 13MP jpg by the lab. The character is so very different from digital, but I am starting to appreciate it. Seeing what I liked in other peoples film shots. At first I looked upon them as my own digital 5D2 images, but that's a no-go. It's different, and yes edward and akul I agree - no grain no film, no film different character. Still character of course, but VERY different.

Funny when you think about it. All these Contax lenses where made for THIS kind for photography (and therefor in some way also the current ZE/ZF derivatives). They where not made for what we do now with our 5D2's or whatever. Yet they're awesome in another dimension today. This part is really worth an own thread. When I think about how much talk there is about the colors these lenses yields on digital, I cant help thinking about how different they would look on color film. There the chemicals outrun the optics color impact by horselengths. Film color is very different from digital, much more different say than a Canon sensor (redish) compared to a Nikon (greenish).

Looking on akuls images above (ZF21) they have absolutely great colors. Great images too akul btw! I have the ZE21 which yields this too, in the right light colors are awesome. I bet the Contax 21/2.8 would do exactly this (well VERY close at least). Yet it was made for a totally different setup.

Ehrm - thanks for reading all this text, film is just occupying my mind a lot right now, sry for his lengthy post. Finally here's the Volvo.

Wilhelm, nice shot. Life is just too hectic for me right now to get back into film. I have never really shot with a 135 format on film before. But next year I might get a Contax body to shoot with. How's the S treating you?

Thanks. I rarely use this lens due to the focal length too Previously I had plan to sell it too, but somehow it's color rendering always held me to sell it. The color is very pleasing to my eyes
