What makes a picture good? Not only because this is a very subjective question it is a hard one to answer. We will still try to do that and in the process we will also come across the following questions: why do you take pictures in the first place and: for whom?
I received quite a lot of feedback on my Leica M10 review especially regarding the B&W pictures – of which there were clearly more than there are usually to be found in my other articles – and I was asked to write a piece on how I process my B&W images. Then in the Voigtlander VM 35mm 1.2 III review people asked how I archive that vintage/film look, so I decided to combine both in one article.
We would like to make a little experiment: You can send us a raw file and then some of us will process it, show our settings, discuss our approach and maybe compare our results.
The idea is that you can compare our results to your own processing and maybe improve on it. At the same time we can compare our results and learn something as well. So everybody benefits 🙂
How to get an image to us
The easiest way would be to leave a comment with a link to the raw file. But you can also send an E-Mail to xxxx.
Edit: Thanks to all those who contributed! We now have a good selection of images to chose from 🙂
In many of our lens reviews we talk about certain kinds of aberrations, so this article shall give you an overview of typical lens aberrations, tell you in what lenses to encounter them and how to cope with them.
We may publish another article in the future that will go further into detail, not only naming the aberrations, but talking about what causes them.
