Oh, yeah

Outside tires probably get more traction

Some night shots with the Zeiss 15mm ZF.2.

All have some light painting which I have recently started playing with. The 2 arches NP shots are 2 exposures. The sky exposures are around 25 seconds at 3200/6400iso and the foreground shots are 3-4 minutes with light painting at lower ISO.
I have been a bit obsessed with processing these shots. Not sure if this happens to others but I would open them nearly everyday in CS6 and make the smallest of changes. For example one day I would add +2 more contrast and then the next day I would do a -3 contrast. I think its time to take a step back and maybe revisit them in a few weeks.

Wow. Great set! When shots are this good, I'd want to spend time to make best out of them. Unfortunately that does not happen with 90% of time for me,

I recently sold my Nikon 135DC and got the Zeiss 135 ZF.2. Wow! That's all I can say. Wow! I've had a 100MP for a couple of years, and a Nikon 180/2.8 ED Ai-s, so the 135 focal length seemed close enough that I had a hard time justifying it, but "you only live once", so I had to try it. I don't have any shots worth showing yet. Hopefully at sunset tonight.

It has been fun to look through this thread again. I have missed out on many pages by spending much of my time on the Sony thread. Lovely images!

Ulff: Extremely good composition! Something I'd be willing to hang on my wall definitely.

bushwacker: I think your photo of the Vespa/scooter is benefitting from the good'ol
Planar's bokeh, more than it would have from the newer 'flawless' lenses. Helps transform the picture into art rather than something clinical.

akul: These Z135 images make me think I have a retina monitor!

mysh: I've been telling myself for months "you don't need that 15", thanks for ruining it.

Grenache: Wonderful images and post-processing to match, you do these lenses justice


dgjean: Reminds me The Exorcist cover! Wow!

I was browsing through my photo library looking for some old treasures, and came across something I shot two weeks ago after a massive, massive snowfall. I haven't put these pictures through the usual post-processing workflow, they are direct exports from Lightroom with minimal processing, I just thought these would help lift some christmas spirits :-) All shot with the 25mm f/2.8 ZF.2 Distagon on a D810.

Nice set kiddik. I really like the ones with the bridge in them.

I mainly bought the 15mm for night shots. Of course it's great for sny time of the day, but i wanted a great UWA with infinity hard stop. If you live in Iceland you would definitely get your use out of the 15.
