Wow! Pentacon portrait is really superb! I just love this lens! What the hell is this monster ? 8/800mm Soligor ? Cat eyes also just simple superb ! I love eyes of animals so much.

@Helios I included your pictures instead of link, looks better for readers in my opinion.

I still cannot decide about my three best shots...

But I really like this one:

Shot at an author's reading in summer 2007.
But shame on me, I cannot remember if I took it with my Minolta Hi-Matic F or my FED-3b / Industar-61L/D... Embarassed

I choose 3 shoots done with Pentacon 135mm f2.8. Not the best shoots of the year, but the best ones of the year with MF Smile

I am beginning to hope that this thread continues through most of this year. Some of the shots are at least as good as those seen in photographic and arty magazines. And to think most are taken with lenses that the general public would consider "obsolete". Thanks to all

Thank you for these nice words Patrick! I spent lots of hours to show the world these lenses are masterpieces and we must reserve them.

Here is my humble offering of pictures . . .
1-4 were taken on vacation in September at Killbear Provincial Park on the shore of Georgian Bay (Lake Huron).
All photos were taken with a Minolta XGM (These 4 were with a "generic" 135mm f2.8 lens - before my various aquisitions)

1:A lone pine tree twisted by the wind over time.


2:More pine trees in the same area.


3:Picture of the rocky shore in the same area.


4:A view farther up that same shore.


5:Some rocks deposited on the shore by nature (after a rain storm).

My favourites are 1 - which reminds me of paintings from the Group of 7 and 5 - has a certain eeriness.

Lastly this is from Christmas - a picture of Emmy who joined our home in October (Don't let the innocent look fool you) Taken with a Minolta XGM with a Tamron 80-210 mm F3.8

Nice shoots ! I prefer some others what I seen from you better.

Well, I like all three, especially the soft-focused shot in #1 and the
silhouette in the doorway, very nice! Not fair, though, VGR, how can
you take a bad picture of this particular subject? Wink

Thank you! The shot is a crop (about 25% of actual frame) as it was hard to get close because of traffic!
