Blossom

Unprocessed shot taken with an Industar-50 lens – a little collapsible Leica copy (well, externally, I think the insides are copied from a Carl Zeiss design, as with most old Soviet lenses).

Two pictures of blossom on the same tree, at Bickleigh Mill. That tree seems to be running a bit early.

These were taken with my NEX-6, using the 40-year-old Asahi SMC Takumar 50mm f/1.4 lens. The focal length worked well for a few shots that day, but they needed more correction than I’d have liked afterwards for purple and green fringing on high-contrast areas. Maybe the modern 50mm f/1.8 would be a good idea. Not quite as wide an aperture, but probably more usable, especially with auto focus.
