    My First NEW photo in a while =)

    This was taken along Singel street (Amsterdam), on my walk home from work on Friday. I was trying out the Kodak T-Max 100 for the first time (next will be Ilford HP5 plus). I liked this scene for all the different subtle reflections (especially the almost motion blur like reflection in the side window). With the DoF pushed to the limit I managed to isolate the parts I wanted. Others from the roll came out ok but this was my favorite.

    That's gorgeous. Framing is spot on, tonal range is superb.

    Is it always raining in Amsterdam? ;)

    Thanks very much guys =). Am reaaaally enjoying B&W film! but got the 85mm f:1.4 today and had to test it on digital to get the instant results (sorry =). I took a couple images around Schipol and central Amsterdam and damn is this lens amazing! Really picky with focusing but great when it works =)

    It wasn't raining at this point... I think, although we have had a lot lately... including today. I know it's not film but here is a couple of my test shots with the lens...
