I really like your processing and the shapes and texture in the details, Ben!
Thank you Bart. I used my beat up pre ai 85 mm lens for this image, which belonged to a press photographer in the 60s early 70s and I’m surprised at how much detail it captured. If you saw it’s condition you’d bin it without a second thought.
I might try it on my D300 but it’s such a heavy all metal beast that I’m not sure I could hold the whole thing steady.

Never judge a book by its cover :)

In this case, beat up = used a lot = a satisfying lens

Thanks to Allan, dossy and Terri for viewing and your encouraging comments. It was a great lens in its time and continues to give good results.
I did toy with the idea of giving it a sepia tone but didn’t want to overkill the image.
