This is from a WWII diesel sub, once parked in Charleston, now long gone. I think I would have liked to make a sub my home, but I am sure it would have been very expensive to maintain! But secure from hurricanes, and cosy in the winter. Picture heavily filtered to get the lighting effect.
I rescanned the Ektachrome using a lightbox and NEX-5T with micro-Nikkor 55. Set for Vivid color. PP in SIlkypix Studio 4 for better more natural colors than previous posting. I shot this from my C&C 3/4T raceboat. No one seemed to mind that I was so close to them. My son steered while I filmed.
Last night went to a surprise performance of the Glen Miller Orchestra now in its 50th year and worldwide audience. Only had the Elmarit 28 with me.
Focussing the Elmarit manually was not so easy because everyone was in motion, After making some color adjustments to the shadows, I added some noise using DXO filmPack by selecting Fuji 800 ASA film look. Yes, I had to add noise to make it realistic.
All these pictures made with a Pentax 110 18mm lens fixed at f2.8 on a NEX-5 body. Edited in CS2 mostly using flaming pear filters. Images cropped to select the most pleasing colors. Some took ten minutes, some an hour to do.
Example of swerve filter on a picture that was mirrored and part of it mirrored top to bottom. Three layers used and parts of each layer erased to make the composite. Flaming Pear Filter applied in CS. sRGB Color embedded into the file.
This picture goes well with a song I created. Open the link in another browser window, so you can still see the picture.
Old time look using the Super Takumar 18mm lens from an old Pentax 110 film camera. No PP. I much prefer this soft look to a heavily pp'd picture. Here the lens and camera settings produced the look I wanted. I have made hundreds of pictures with this combination and learned what the final picture would look like. The distortion adds to the quaintness, as the house seems to be settling down on the right corner.

This show that even Nikon lenses can make good filtered pictures!
Nex-5 with Micro-Nikkor 55. Modified in CS using FP Swerve filter (there are millions of combinations of filter controls available - getting just the right combination takes some time.) These filters can still be found at http://www.flamingpear.com/older.html
