Sandra Bartocha - Stormy Sea


My recent shortrip to the Baltic Sea revealed a stormy sky and a stormy sea …
As I have been working with “water” and “stones” quite a lot and I’m a little tired of these images … I tried another perspective and chose a small aperture of 2.8 with my magical Meier Görlitz lens … and focused on the impressive waves.

    Great perspective! I hope you stayed dry. What is the benefit of using such a lens say compared to a 70-200mm F2,8 lens @ 100mm setting?

    I stayed almost dry. :)
    The lens is a very simple two glass lens that has massive optical problems - soft rendition, chromatic aberation and halos - whatever you wish for. :)
    The advantage in this case is, that it gives the scene a more dreamy appearance and I usually like the colour shift. :))
    Remember the liverleafs you used for Lofo ... with the light beam ... these strange things happen with that lens ... you never know exactly what the outcome will be.

    I like a lot this dynamis and angle of view!
