Very nice panoramas.
I think it would be interesting for many to know which lenses did you use (if you remember).

Very nice! The coloration looks very nostalgic, as if the pictures were taken in the '70s. I like it. I don't know if this was your intention or just the scanners work...

I only spent about 2 days in Moscow when I visited (was primarily in St. Petersburg for the 5 weeks) and never got around the the other side of St. Basil's. To bad, looks like I would have gotten some great pics.

I've never seen those views of Moscow before - thanks, Sergey.

There's a slight too much magenta in the scans, probably the scanner didn't "neutralize" completely the film mask, you need to find some neutral point to get the right white balance (I can suggest some concrete or street asphalt). It's a common issue.

The shots are really nice, just like the camera btw, Iskra are almost on par with the best german folders being the Industar lens a Tessar clone.

I think that it is my primitive tablet (planshet) scanner gives such balance of colour.

I do not have scanner from a film of an average format, therefore more detailed scanning will not turn out. Can sometime be I will make normal scanning in a photolaboratory.

Likely you are right, but at me the monitor is not calibrated, therefore I all the same cannot expose precisely balance of white colour. If I will sometime reach a photolaboratory I think they will make scanning with correct colours.

Old lenses have a single-layered enlightenment (coated), therefore do not love the sun in front.
