Very white and shiny cloud afternoon.


Nowadays Korea has very and very bad pollution so it was quite hard to see far distance.
And it makes really problem with taking photos because photo became very dull with hazy air.

It doesn't look clear when I saw far distance so I wasn't very excited. But those white cloud make things interested.


Very white and shiny cloud afternoon. 오랜만에 보는 새하얀 구름.


I think this photo wasn't really represent today's view because this pollution-hazy-air make white cloud little bit less white.
But I did use Sony A7's rich tone mono in picture effect which is I think HDR(High Dynamic Range) B&W.
That's why there has shadow of blurred bird.

Photo taken with Sony A7 and Carl Zeiss Biotar 58mm f/2 exakta mount lens.
Aperture was at f/8.


This is very old lens 1957-ish so I had to adjust lots of things with Gimp.
But generally simple things like adjust level, use curves tool and straightening.
One hard thing was shake part on very top edge because rich tone mono needed three shots. So I had to use clone and heal tool in Gimp.



* about the Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 58mm f/2 lens.
It became one of my favourite lens so I have two of them--both were Exakta mount lens and those were made between 1955 and 1961. So it's about 60 year old lens.
And I also like this preset mode.
60 year old lens but it still works beautifully.
