Week 2

(short)Tele: WinterWalk (backlit yet again, not filter needed with the Voigtander 1.5/75 Nokton )


AnythingCreative: HipHippeastrum (I get these amazing flowers at a small private seller just around the corner of my house. Their bloom period & colours are amazing! The dirt cheap Kenlock lens with a simple 15mm extention tube makes for some artyfarty bokeh)


Streets: HomeSweetHome (imagine living in a house covered in work of art, this woman does )

I'd be happy to live in a mural'd house - wonder how often it gets a repaint?!

My flat/apartment is peculiarly difficult to find, to say 'the one with the bear and owl and fox' mural on it - yeah, I can find that!

That winter walk (my, Voigtlander makes some good lenses) and Hippeastrum flower are very nicely done. Very interested in how you took the Hippeastrum shot with lens and extension tube. Have you tried this combination before?

Over the years I owned a handfull of Voigtlander lenses in all different focallenghts. All had, without exception, great handling and build quility. They are not without foult, but no lens is. Small, sharp, affordable plus some character to the colours and bokeh. Thicks many of my boxes for a good lens

I've tried the kenlock lens befor with extention tubes. Without it is just a terrible lens.... With extention it is ridiculous how close the front end of the lens comes to the object (1-2 mm), sometimes touching it. Somehow the bokeh gets 'funky-but-smooth', colours a bit smeered all together giving it a 'special-saus'. If you check my flickr page on "kenlock" you'll find more pics taken with this combination.

@onsplekkie

I'll concede I'm also very happy with my foray into Voigtlander lenses. It sounds like that kenlock lens is a real challenge so well done making it work for that flower image.

I like the central composition and PP in your first street shot

Week 3 - All in a 16:9 ratio, just because it looks neat

(short)tele: Chasing the gold (taken on the fields behind our house, near Schipluiden, with the Voigtlander 1.5/75 Nokton)


Street: Mural Madness (found during my random roaming of the streets in Rotterdam. Taken with my trusty/go-to/stealty A7s + Voigtlander 1.7/35. Such a small package for low profile streetphotography)


Anything creative: Rijnhaven (3 horizontal shots @ 10sec shutterspeed each, no tripod with me but one of my gloves worked just fine . Taken with the Voigtlander 1.7/35 Ultron. I just love the sunstars this lens gives.

Oh my! That mural shot looks very striking @onsplekkie.
And that stitch plus Voigtlander 17mm looks marvellous. It's impressive you managed it without a tripod. Good skills with improvisation there.

Week 4

(Short)tele - A small cloud of mist started to lift up during our morning walk, the Voigtlander 1.5/75 Nokton made light work of it.


Streets - City of Delft has plenty of historical houses. Some of them used as student-housing, mostly recognized by the abundance of bicycles outside owned by its residents


Anything creative - 20 sec exposure with a 1000ND filter with the Loxia2.8/21. Still getting the grips on this sort of shooting. It involves a tripod, which I am not a big fan of using. But will do more shots coming year to try and get some better results

Another great collection @onsplekkie.

The first shot really works the golden light, and I can see why you like that Voigtalnder so much. It creates something special in the rendering.

The second shot with the black-and-white effect, bicycles and buildings tell an interesting story. Bicycles really are a great way for people to travel in cities.

The long exposure has potential, looking forward to seeing what else you can produce over the year.

I really like the Delft street shot, very recognisable allthough it easily could have been Leiden or Utrecht as well. The B&W conversion and the two black borders all reinforce the composition.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

In the w4 set I really like first shot. The golden light, framing from the trees and action with the girl running into the frame
