About the Image(s)

This photograph is very different from what I usually present in this group. I have purchased a new lens, an 7Artisan 35mm, f/0,95 manual. I'm exited to read comments and suggestions of every kind.

The lens was mounted on Fujifilm X-E3. 1/125 sec, f/0,95.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

WOW Jorn F0.95 that is a different lens. I feel our varied approaches to photography is a wonderful thing, we all see things differently. This image in b&w is quite strong and the way the background becomes more blurred the further the eye goes into it is very effective. My thought with this particular image would be that at the time of capture, is to move just a few inches to the right to hide that second sign behind the main sign. I believe that you are not a fan of post-processing and that is excellent. Your skills are then within your heart, your head and your hands, and that is a wonderful way to approach photography. After seeing what this lens does with depth of field, I would love to see you produce a colour image of a flower, a few meters away from any neutral background, say a thoughtfully positioned potted plant. Depending on the colours, I think it may literally leap out of the background and slap me in the face.   Posted: 02/07/2021 18:32:24

Jorn - Looks like you found a great new lens! I love the way the sharpness falls off so dramatically. I think Ian's suggestions would be great to try with this lens. Can't wait to see more of it!   Posted: 02/08/2021 08:52:56

Very nice image Jorn. I have never heard of a lens with an f- stop like that before. It really adds creativity and interest in your photo with such a drastic drop-off in focus.   Posted: 02/08/2021 20:22:57

I agree with Ian about the second triangular sign as it points the eye towards what? Plus by stepping to the right and moving the angle up the roofline would be a V toward the work sign and also not include the square distraction at the right of the sign. That would make only one focus: the sign. Cool lens and you ought to have a lot of creative fun with it!   Posted: 02/20/2021 11:26:30
