#13 Heavily cropped


#14 Barbershop window with an intriguing unexplainable device in B/W


#15 Art deco patterns


#16 Stacked bar interior shot


#17 And some fisheye (12mm lensbaby)

Bob, I saw you taking the Cyclist on cobbles and wondered how good that would turn out. Well, it came out very well

Domien, objects near the edges start looking a bit "weird" with an ultra wide, see #12 for instance where the lens on the camera looks much shorter and my hand much longer than in real life. I won't comment on my face

After dinner we did some real night shooting, sorry for some images doing double duty with day prime, but they belong in the series here as well

p20: Nieuwe Rijn



p21: Domien and Bob manage to stand still for 6 seconds on the Koornbrug



p22: Nieuwe Rijn 2



p23: Rapenburg


20 & 21: A7 + Ultra Wide Heliar 12/5.6
22: A7 + Samyang FE35/2.8
23: A7ii + APO Lanthar 65/2

Rectilinear is rectilinear
I remember someone explaining why he only shoots the Eiffel tower and other large non-living objects. That was because they seldom complain for looking too long/short or too fat/skinny.
But in this case, I must say you have a point.
I wanted an interior shot. And the alternative shots looked worse. Especially Bobs head in the corner wouldn't be recognized by any of his family. I won't show it.

I'm seeing some lovely details here that I missed completely at the time.

I seem to have been very taken with all the bikes...

b23. Bikes framed by the bridge

a7ii * Samyang AF24 * f/3.2 * 1/50 * ISO 6400

b24. Bike profile

a7ii * Samyang AF24 * f/3.2 * 1/40 * ISO 6400

b25. Domien and the bikes

a7ii * Samyang AF24 * f/5.0 * 5s * ISO 100

b26. Getting fishy in the drizzle

a7ii * Samyang 8 * f/4.0 * 1/30 * ISO 6400

b27. Taking nightshots

a7ii * Samyang AF24 * f/2.8 * 1/30 * ISO 6400

b28. Sit-up-and-beg (is that expression used outside the UK?) bike

a7ii * Samyang AF24 * f/2.8 * 1/8 * ISO 6400

b29. Mysterious people in the alleyway

a7ii * Samyang AF24 * f/3.5 * 1/60 * ISO 6400

b30. Bikes in the alley

a7ii * Samyang AF24 * f/2.8 * 1/15 * ISO 6400

Bob, did you suddenly change White Balance between b25 and b26, they suddenly look a lot cooler from there. Btw, I like your bike theme, especially b23 (nicely framed ) and b30.


Some more from a bit earlier in the day (2nd pass through my shots of the day )

p24: Same shop as in Domien's #5, but a slightly wider angle

A7 + Ultra Wide Heliar 12/5.6


p25: At the bastion, my name and the name of our son all on one shield



p26: The back-side of Nieuwe Rijn 7, as seen from the bastion. It's the house where my parents lived after getting married in May 1952 until they moved to Amsterdam late '52 or early '53.



p27: For Domien, the "intriguing unexplainable device" from your shot #14 is a "Dauerwellgerät Tempera", a machine to heat up curlers before they are rolled in someones hair to set curls.


25-27: A7 + Domien's 24-105/4

I kept the camera's 'sunset' white balance for the yellow one, but corrected the bw in C1 for the other..

Nice WB experiments Bob, you can go many different ways and moods.

b34, b37 and b39 are my favourites from this set.

p24: a bit earlier on the Rapenburg, at the bridge over the Vliet



p25: The canals near the entrance of the Hortus Botanicus


And two from after dinner:

p26: You can see the making of this one in b37, Doezastraat in Christmas mood



p27: Galgewater with windmill "De Put" in the background


24-25: A7 + Domien's 24-105/4
26-27: A7ii + APO Lanthar 65/2

Nice catch Bob. PArticularly b23 b30 b34 b39
The night shots (p26 p27) look good Pieter

I have been using 4 lenses in Leiden.
Didn't show the results of the 135mm Zeiss.
Next post the long lens impressions of the short lens shots shown above.

(cliffhanger)

Not easy, night shooting with a long lens in narrow alleys. I especially like the B&W versions (22 and 23), but also 24 and 27 I like a lot.


Probably my last installment from this "mini"-meet

p28: Lower levels are gone home, higher levels still at work (university building in the Hortus)



p29: Brouckhovenshof (exit arch and entrance door )



p30: Woo Ping



p31: Rapenburg


28-30: A7 + Domien's 24-105/4
31: A7ii + APO Lanthar 65/2
