    Another interesting set. Close-ups of nature always reveal more than the naked eye can see. And the trees in the last two are wonderful.
     
  3. nice. I love the old naked trees of winter.
     
  4. That last one is really nice. The people are so distant that a really large print perhaps would be necessary to fully appreciate the image, but well worth it!

    Thank you, Merlin, Beagledog and Mike!
    Very much appreciated!
     
  6. 2, 3 and the last one are incredible. And wow, a Super Takumar.

    Really appreciated, Nick!
    Thank you!
    Are you familiar with the takumar lenses?

    (I just realised I forgot the "multi-coated" part :) )
     
  8. Wonderful series, Bart! I think #1, #3, and #7 are my faves!

    Greatly appreciated!
     
  10. It was the first SLR lens I ever shot through, it was in 1966, a friends dad had just gotten an Ashai pentax with a 55, f/2 lens. Later when I bought my own first camera i the late 1970's, a Praktika, I equipped it with several Super Takumar lenses (55 f/2 and 135/f3.5 (?)

    Was also my first lens, on a spotmatic SP500.
    By far my most used lens for over 30 years.
     
  12. Very interesting set Bart. Is that branch which looks attached to the big tree really a part of the big tree ?

    Thank you, Binnur!
    Much appreciated!

    Yes, the branch is growing out of the big tree.
    It looked to me as if a small tree was escaping from a sort of cocoon.
    (I have a vivid imagination :) )
     
  14. That last one is stellar.
