Bob - Ah, this is a tough call for me. I like the WO with its dreamy scene, which is a bit strayed from the approach of the rest of the series. As a stand alone though, I do like WO one very much. I really like the color on the door, and the buildings behind, but also wonder BW potential.

Ask and you shall receive! I like the BW option but the brightly colored blue door is pretty dramatic in the color version. Thoughts?

Diploneis - Awesome portraits

Here's one from Picadilly Circus this morning, the bright billboards rule out a single exposure so this was 4 shots combined in Photomatix, but then the electronic billboards were a mess so i layered one with the HDR image and masked it on.

ZE25/2.8

Cheers Bob, love the interior shots, especially the one with the table, gives a unique feeling of space but with the colours and details from the windows, cool.

Akul, beautiful work with the 1.4/35
Diploneis, great portraits. Love the entire set and processing. Top notch !
Bob, hard to pick from an excellent set but #1 and #3 are special. Are they HDR ?

Also, I sold my 2/35 and missed it so much that I bought it back. Should be arriving tomorrow. I agree, there's something about the 2/35 !

Thanks John - Yes, they are HDR. I use Nik's HDR Efex Pro v2.

Bob - I see. You are right, I miss the blue door which was striking in color.

Luka - we must have posted at the same time. Wow, a shot with the 35/1.4 WO, what a surprise! A shot after my own heart . . . narrow DOF of a bicycle on the street. Nice . . .


+1
very nice Luka

beautiful window series Bob. The blue door shot works in colour and B&W. But the B&W made me think that it might work better in colour if the rest of the picture (other than the door and shaft) were desaturated a bit - just a bit - not so it's noticeable - but so there's less yellow and brown and a bit less colour out the window - and if the floor were lightened slightly?

John, nice shot with the ZE25/2.8. For a lens with some not so great reviews, it produces some great images. I think it's a sleeper in the Zeiss lineup.

Great series Bob! I haven't seen the old Bellsouth logo in a long time. It is Bellsouth, correct?
Truly enjoying my Zeiss 100mm. The 15mm will be in my future, no doubt.

This building is old enough that it is probably Ma Bell before the split. The building is in Minneapolis, MN.

@Bob - The 3D effect of the last photo in your series along with the detail, shadows and colors are amazing. You continue to make something that could be so mundane speak volumes and come to life. Fantastic work. Have a great week!

Wow, thanks a lot for that comment. I have to admit, the Zeiss 15mm is an amazing lens.

Thank you !!


MJ - Great to see your work here again. Beautiful BW.
John- Great night ( morning ) shot of Picadilly Circus. It is a bit eery with no one in there. Or HDR erased them?
Jochen - Beautiful composition and light.
Martynas- Gorgeous shot. Hat is adding period feel to it. Very nice.
