New York Public Library

All with the Pen-F and the Voigtlander 17.5.

Re: New York Public Library

Excellent shots

They look very sharp, were they shot wide open? I've read mixed reviews of Voigtlander's wider lenses resolution at f/0.95 although the 42.5 is supposed to be very crisp.

Cheers,

JohnGG

Re: New York Public Library

They were all shot at f1.4. My copy is pretty sharp at f0.95 and sharpens up bit by bit to f2.8 at which point it's insanely sharp. f0.95 is usable so long as you're not too close to the subject but f1.2 is better and I usually use it there.

Re: New York Public Library

Yes lovely atmosphere conveyed in those shots, very nice. The angles all look great too did you have to correct them in processing?

The second two were corrected in LR.

Very nice set Paul I love the first and last but the second is a bit grey so I think it needs more work

Re: New York Public Library

The first one is a top shot in many ways. It has a great sense of purpose and I can feel the atmosphere oozing from the walls.
