    Thank you, Renato, as far as I know, there aren't any really bad modern lenses for LF (by modern, I mean in the last 50 years). This lens is fantastic, I have it for about 15 years and I have done many photos with it. I will not change this lens for any other.

    That's quite a nice image. Is the Buhl lens a modern LCD projector lens or an old slide projector lens?

    I like this quite a bit as well though I wish you'd swung the lens the other direction. The in-focus strip of barn behind her is distracting for me. Swinging the other way would have kept the in-focus are other than her out of the image.

    These images are so beautiful. I am going to take some time to share a few of my thoughts on the recent ones.

    Renato: You captured such a beautiful moment in this one. I quite like the fact that they are not staring right into the lens which makes the moment you captured very authentic. Thanks for sharing!

    Jim: That's a lovely picture and shows off the ring especially well. Love the story behind the picture as well.

    Scott: Really love the 1st and the 3rd pictures in this set.

    Ootsk: Gorgeous! Love the DOF.

    Pfiltz: Stunning capture and very neat DOF effect which works perfectly in this image.

    Regards,

    Pali
