testing my 180mm f4 Cfi Sonnar T* -- I still think the 135mm f4.5 'Blue Dot' Sekor set on my C220 beats it.

Fruit Seller
I got that lens for £10 at a 'Car Boot Sale' here in England. It is marked 'made in Japan under licence from Carl Zeiss Jena. '

Danish Seals. Lago Pehoe, Chile.
you could have offered to cuddle them up and use your 'Body Heat' to warm them --- unless you had a WIFE watching --- !

Good lighting and exposure but I wish you had not cut off the top of his head.

50mm f1.4 Zeiss Planar test
I found the Contax RTS II Quartz had some 'light leaks' such as the reddish area on THIS photo -- I had already replaced the rotten mirror bumper foam so now i had to take off the door and replace two strips of foam there -- door now fits well and NO light leaks !

PLANAR on CONTAX RTS II Quartz
i have just processed some B&W film taken with this CONTAX and the ones at full aperture are no sharper than my 50mm f1.4 SMC Pentax on my 1973 Spotmatic F .

Carl Zeiss Biometar on Pentacon Six
Yes -- I still use the camera occasionally and upload to here and Flickr. I have some old ex-RAF lenses I use with adapters including a 1943 Kodak Aero-Ektar 178mm f2.5 lens

Bart
Sadly Bart died two weeks ago -- fitting that the last photo taken of him was with the Rolleiflex he gave me with the Zeiss Planar lens.

Very well timed - good job it's not the River Severn here in England or he would be swept away in the floods ---

Softer lighting on this one so good detail on face and in eyes.

The 'off-centre' composition works well here as the pattern on the wall plaster leads the eye to the sitter.

wild night
Too dark and it looks like you have some 'Camera-Shake'

The grain and high contrast SUIT this subject matter and turns it into a good 'Abstract'

Too contrasty and shows a lot of grain for the subject matter.
