I put the Flektogon on the K110D for this shot. The Flek was stopped down to f:11, and it seems to really show fine sharpness and detail when stopped down.

This was a surprising amount of color for being in Winter. There is enough warmth coming off the ocean, that some of the greenery is starting to get... well.....green!

Lovely. I like the way the water has a sense of flow without going too soft and milky. The greens are wonderful.

You have a lot more green than we do. Lovely as always. The Flek is a nice lens and I am getting more and more comfortable with mine.

superb colors and interesting composition, different from your usual clean style but nicely balanced and pertinent

I think other captures with film was lot better.This is contrast less, color less compare with others. Perhaps season ? Light less forest or simple 6x6 film is better than DSLR ?

Thank you all! This is a more detailed image than I am used to, and it's difficult for me to try to de-emphasize so many details throughout the composition.

Attila, you are correct. The day was very cloudy and moody with extremely flat light. I considered boosting the saturation, but in the end just "went" with the way it was in person. On a summer day, I would suspect this image would have more punch to it. Cool

Attila, the greens in the film pictures come from Velvia.

Nothing does green like Velvia.
