Swiss mountains with Ikonta

A shot of Rocher-de-Naye with a 1936 Zeiss Ikonta 531/2. I like the composition but I think elements are a bit too similar in my edit (a bit dark too maybe), there’s probably something better to do with some dodge & burn & local contrast. Don’t mind the dust :slight_smile:

Please explain: is that a scan from an old neg, or have you adapter’d a good old lens onto your Canon?

It’s a scan of the 6x9 negative with my EOS R. The shot was taken last month.

Something different for a play raw!
I had a couple of tries at this. In the end I settled for inverting the negative, applying an “S” curve. Then I added a copied layer in overlay mode at 66.5% opacity which was slightly tweaked with curves. All done in GIMP.

That was a nice exercise, could spend more time on the dust/spot removal but this’ll do :grin:
