Half a year has gone by since I took these images. I’m pretty thankful for my cache of pictures, because I hardly take images at all right now. Why? Stress, a transitional phase at work, and then I’ve got my Sony PS4 Pro, remember?
I bought it for making first steps in VR, but in reality I have spent countless hours in “Skyrim“. Meet Astaroth, level 47 conjurer, Archmage of the College of Winterhold, Citizen of Whiterun and Solitude, Dragonborn 🙂
I’ve played Skyrim’s predecessors “Morrowind” and “Oblivion” on the PC, but at the time “Skyrim” came out six years ago, I didn’t have a powerful enough graphics card. Today’s “Special Edition” brings lots of new visual goodies, and on the PS4 Pro it runs buttery smooth in all its glory.
In terms of bokeh, this is pretty much as creamy as it gets. In terms of DOF, this is pretty much as shallow as I can possibly want it 😀
This park is where the second Vienna International Garden Show took place in 1974. It has aged gracefully. Here’s a detail of some stairs.
I think we can agree that the Mitakon Speedmaster 25/0.95 is finally beginning to earn its money.
This is some art installation in the same park. Glass panes with white swirls etched into them, a few meters between the panes. While being close to one pane, I’ve manually focused on the next one.
A beautiful day in late September, people in a park, sitting in deck chairs, reading. No, it’s not private property. Just a public park in Vienna 🙂
The manual focus 25/0.95 Mitakon Speedmaster is a lens that feels and looks good on the PEN-F. I think in the meantime they sell it in silver as well, and that would be an even better match. The fate of the early adopter 🙂
Of course in an image like this, any lens would do. Had I used the Olympus 25/1.8, I’d even be able to tell you the aperture I’ve used. Must have been around f2.8, I guess.
