that looks better Carsten, the 50P seems to clear up a bit at 2.0 - Samuli said it before...
I am not sure I like it so much for natural background like shrubs and trees.

at f 1.4







at f2










Happy new year everybody!

Hmm, you appear to have very bad luck with that lens I have never seen such boke from it, although I occasionally get something a bit less calm than I like.

Carsten, it seems to be the combination of backlight and structure

Kokusai, impressive colours

Erm, did I write something wrong? It was taken on a tripod.

Wrong? No. I just wondered why you did not tackle this scene with HDR, which seems to be your usual approach for this type of subject matter.

That is true, I used to do a lot of HDR for urbex, but at some point I realised that I often liked the single shots better than the HDRs, so this time I didn't do any.

I think it works better not in HDR, sometimes it's what you don't see that make a picture rather than what you do

Ah, I should add that the processing dramatised the shot quite a bit. I wanted more dramatic lighting, high-key light in the background, more intensity in the front room. The plain shot is more... plain.
