I took this photo at dawn, camera on tripod, yellow Moment filter, Ilford Delta 100 developed in Fomadon Excel, Epson 4490 scan. I'd set the focus a bit far so the tree is barely in the front focus zone...



Looking at the ~7 mpix scan, the street sign in the back is legible. So I figure I'll do a "100% crop" to show unresized. I did desaturate this crop relative to the larger pic above.



I feel really lucky to have found this wee prewar gem of a camera.

And a gem it is. I never cease to be amazed to see what those pre-war cameras can do. I'm almost inclined to think that many pre-war cameras are better than the post-war ones...

Many of them indeed are.

Great B&W shot Nesster, I like it a lot.
