This is a bit of a postcard shot, not so interesting, so I will fill in with a bit of background. The place is the Schiffshebewerk Niederfinow, and is in the middle nowhere, outside of Berlin. It is situated on a river with quite a bit of traffic, and exists due to the fairly steep rise (36m) in elevation here. Schiff means ship, and Hebewerk means lifting machine, more or less, i.e. it is an elevator for ships. It is quite old (1906), and will soon be replaced by a much more modern one which is currently being built on the other side of it. ZF21 on D800.

I am not sure why there appears to be a cyan cast on the left, my lens is normally balanced. Perhaps there was a bit of weather over there, I don't quite recall any more.

A slightly brutal photoshop treatment of another shot from the same day, ZF50/1.4@2.8 on D800:







It looks like I messed up the edges inside the frame a bit. Downsizing images with multiple layers doesn't seem to work for me. I am learning Photoshop... has anyone watched these two videos:

Nice shots, Carsten. As to framing, I just make a new "image" in PS which is xx pixels taller and wider than the photo, fill with black, and copy-paste my photo on to it.

I use the Cmd+Opt+C box, which adds a frame of X pixels to the width and Y pixels to the height, evenly all around, but even before the frame, there was a thin light area all around, I just didn't spot it before I added the frame. This shot is not that important to me, but I am wondering why having layers causes this to happen on downsizing. I noticed it about halfway through my downsizing, cropped it out, and continued until I was done. I just didn't think to check it again until I saw it here.

Ah, that's the canvas size shortcut, I suppose. (I'm on pc). That works just as good.

I use a Contax 55 to 86 step ring as a hood for my 55 Planar, the one Wilhelm mentioned. You don't actually need the rest of the attachments. That ring is sufficient to shield it.

It looks a little awkward with a short lens and a wide "hood", but it works well. Tamron makes an 86mm snap lens cap that fits on the front. Then every one thinks you have a tiny Tamron lens and leaves you alone. :-)

Carsten - Great series. All three are very different of each other. Bridge shot for the pristine clean detail as opposed to the lush fall color to the sort of metalic fern leaves. #2 is my current favorite.

I remain grateful for what you all are showing me about Zeiss lens capabilities. Wow!! I thought I'd add this picture, taken with a Nikkon F4, set on P mode, and using my ZF.2 50/2MP. It's a shard of a major tree knocked down and broken up by hurricane Sandy as it came through the Philadelphia area. Film is Portra 400 as I recall, developed and Lo-Rez scanned by Philadelphia Photographics (excellent service from these folks). I uploaded the SOOC jpg to Aperture and did minimal PP'g.

Forgive the "pooch" photo, but Emma, a registered Therapy Dog, is an ever-present and willing subject. This is SOOC w/o PP'g, simply uploaded to aperture from the Photographics CD
