Today features something a bit out of the ordinary for The Daily Portsmouth. I’m renting a pair of Carl Zeiss lenses this week…a wide angle 21mm lens and a 50mm makro lens, and today’s shot was taken with the 21mm. These lenses have wonderful color reproduction with minimal editing, and have a razor thin depth of field. While a portion of the field close to the lens is sharply in focus, in this case the wood grain of the bench – the focus falls off incredibly quickly fading into a soft background with rich color. This is normally an instantly recognizable landmark…but I like that the shot forces you to examine the elements to distinguish the location. Any guesses? I’ll have the lenses for a few more days and hope to do some experimenting with their capabilities, and see how they handle more of my typical shooting. How do you like today’s image?
