.... But it was not easy to use at all, hard to set the aperture or shutter speed together, i didn't like it, even my friend told me that if i will get 80mm then go with CF version, also i can't be sure about the quality as my Hasselblad focusing screen is bad, i love the Hasselblad design and weight but the focusing screen making me to fav Mamiya RZII over it, i hope to find a better focusing screen [i think i have Acute Matte-D which many recommended but it seems it didn't work fine with me, it is used not new].

Nice work. In the first 3 shots I love how the classic urban design contrasts with the modern dress, mobile phones etc.

They all look good to me.
You have posted this street with lanterns before. Is it possible to go early or late when the laterns are lit and there is enough daylight to give some detail in the buildings & pavement? Just a thought. In color maybe?

This location is just where our photography society[club] is, i like to go there many times, but only on Saturday i go there in the morning, but i don't go very early morning and the sun is strong enough even morning time.

I have many shots in color too, i also took some enough shots there with my Hasselblad H3DII-39[gone:traded in] and the new H4D-60.
I posted 2 shots of LF color sheets also from this place, but i feel i burnt that place too much with testing many films, i feel very bad and sad since my dad passed away 3 months ago and not planning to do any trip around to the desert or the beach, but i feel i can't have something interesting around against all of your amazing shots from your side of world.

Here are threads where i posted color film shots from that place around:

The first two links are my latest shoot in that place with color film.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I ALWAYS enjoy seeing how the rest of the world looks and lives. The beauty of this and other forums is seeing other parts of the world as seen by its residents. I am not the only member of this forum living in the San Diego area, and I know that the others see this area much differently than I. I think we all enjoy how you picture your part of the world, keep up the great work. :smile:

I am loving number four. That guy is really connected, he is texting and talking at the same time. You have to like how a Planar paints a picture.

Amazing shots! Definitely love seeing interesting locations.

Did you have any trouble developing or rinsing your film though? It looks like there are a few streaks or runs on two or three of the photos :(

In fact i don't know what happened as i always wash the film and use Photoflu[wetting agent] to not have those marks or whatever, but seems that the bubbles oozing on the roll and dry with streaks, i just not trying to remove the bubbles with fingers or something else to not damage the emulsion as i heard or as recommended by some.
