Ronny, first graffiti photo is great.
Lieutenant Z, nice work with the 85 Planar. I like how you handle the light.
Luka, nice set and the waterfall photo is great. I would perhaps lighten up or crop out the far left that is a little to dark but the rest of the photo has a very nice light and composition.

Lovely shots. How are you finding both the 21 and 15? I would have thought they were very close!

I thought so too but they're not. The 15 exaggerates things much more (obciously). I haven't shot the 21 is some time and was considering selling it for the 25/2. However, shooting it recently reminds me of just how good this lens is. Compared to the 15, I feel like I can use it in a more normal focal length setting. Honestly, I haven't done enough side by side comparison. Suffice to say, I love them both.

Very nice and diverse shots on this page, thanks for sharing Bob, Rob, Luka, Z & Ronny. Bonus cigars for the faint tasteful colors of the Luka light pole shot and Bob for shooting into the sun.

Your colour pallet is always quite interesting, how do you process these?

Thanks
some regular adjustments contrast and sharpness
playing with the tone curve and saturation, and Vibrance and I have a split toning with and then so I often use the Color Efex pro and where I use the detail extractor and Darken / Lighten Center

Wilhelm - I remember from the photo a few pages back that you have quite a selection of C/Y Zeiss. Do you have the 18mm? If so, how do you like it?

Or anyone else with the 18mm?

Thanks, will have to try out color efex pro then. Are you taking it through Lightroom or something first or just all in color efex?

I do most things in lightroom first .. then Color Efex Pro and where I use the detail extractor and Darken / Lighten Center most .. but find that there are several filters that are very useful and good ... a quick way to edit images and easier
unless one have the knowledge and time to work in layers as Photoshop etc.

Great shot Bob

Looks like you and the 85 are doing fine, Bob. Lots of drama in the sky. Looks like it is on fire.

Meant to tell you - not that I have seen you shoot IR, but that lens has no hot spot when shooting infrared. A rare feature in such a wide aperture lens. Not sure if that is something that Contax worked on deliberately or not, but it is a nice side effect either way.

Happy holidays, all.

Jim

Sorry no. Dont know much about it or the adaptability. But I'd like a Zeiss wider than 21. I have the ZE 21 and is not to fond of the auto aperture on those.

- and happy holidays all from here too -

Not fond of auto aperture?!

Ehum.., what I meant was that the ZE versions dont have manual aperture. That's part of the reason for me going CY. Future adaptability, elimination of potential focus shift etc.

Ah ok. I quite welcome auto aperture right now, photography can be difficult enough without stop down metering, I must be wasting a lot of my shutter life by chimping as much as I have to
