My pleasure to comment on such beautifully crafted photographs - especially since no one else does.
This is some of the technically most beautiful digital B&W I ever saw on this forum. It's obvious that you know what sliders to move Wink
And from the care taken in the different exposure zones, it's obvious that this is manual work and not just the usual plugin preset.
Which is another reason to give my respect, because for once I congratulate with a photographer and not with a plugin Wink

#1, 2, 4 & 5 for me.

#1 for the dreamy look.

#2 for the juxtaposition of different shapes and shades - I keep coming back to this one.

#4 for the striking but timeless look - I keep returning to this as well.

#5 for being a great bit of street photography.

An excellent set all well worthy of being printed and proof that even the AF Corner can contain gems. Cool

I keep going back to this last one, think it's the jewel in the crown of an already great collection of photos.

Exquisite comp!

The first one is astonishing.. I just sat and stared at it on my 27 monitor for 10 minutes!

Very nice pictures indeed! And at 160 euros you really got a bargain! Where from may I ask?

Second hand, by a user of a german DSLR forum.

Oh, good for you. I was hoping for a close out...

Very good results, riddance.
This lens is very good.
I had a close look to your "streets of Wasserburg 2" and IQ is very good all over the photo.
According the exif information, it was shot with a D5000, at 1/1000s, f5.6, iso 200, at 34mm, and developped with Photoshop CS6.
Very nice lens, in the hands of a very good photographer and numeric developer. Very Happy
Any tip about your image processing on CS6 ?

I must confess that I do most of my PP with the Niksoftware Plugins Embarassed
But the new Camerraw is perfectly to tease out the maximum dynamic from the RAW-Files Cool

Got this lens too, I never travel without it Smile It's a great idea to get one second-hand instaed of the kit, even for a beginner like me.
I often have to improve saturation in the pictures, but still I love it.
