Wassenaarse Slag II
Thanks Donuss; that's an idea I hadn't thought of yet. I'll give it a try, though I wanted to portray the sandy hazy atmosphere (it was quite warm as well), and the apparent lack of humans, first and foremost.

Thanks! More coming... The 50 Makro-Planar lends itself very well to this type of shots.

Ha ha! No, this is Matthijs (59), biologist with rugged good looks, who just got his first motorcycle!

Like these partial facial shots Mike!

Piercing Gaze! Excellent Shot Mike! Is This Chuck Norris? ; - )

Something's wrong here. Focus on the wrong eye, and that eye being half out of the frame, subject looking out not in, b&w pp too muddy. Uncomfortable image.

For those who might be interested: prints of 60's pics of the Stones and of Jimi Hendrix, AAP-lab Amsterdam.

They're not great, the focus isn't always where it should be, 1/8 sec with an RTS III isn't easy (f1.4 all the way), but I like them.

Thanks Zack! I was having a beer with him (thought you'd recognize him ;-) ) and brought out the then new to me RTS II, with Tri-X and the 2.8/25; it was all all I could do... Lots of movement which I like...

Well done Mike. This has to be one of my favorite's from your pub work. This gentlemen seems like quite a character!

"Don't we all shoot through fence."

Love that comment! Wish I had thought of it...

RTS + 85 1.4, that is a golden combo, one I salivated on long time long ago. At the end of film era, I got Contax Aria + 50 f 1.4 + 28 f 2.8. Beautiful detail and composition. Don't we all shoot through fence. :)

Thanks for the compliment Akul! Contax RTS III with Zeiss 1.4/85 (I think; can't seem to change the incorrect entry) and Tri-X.

I wasn't too pleased with the development and the scan; will try another lab next time. It needed a lot of work in LR3 pp. Maybe I should add Silver Efex Pro to my workflow.

Oh and the dark streak lhd side is part of the fence I/the camera had to peer through... ;-)

Wonderful composition, great tonality. Was this on digital body or film ?
