Yep, I'm a fan of the Voightlander lenses. I just bought the CV12mm. Here is one of my first images with it.

Nice. Have you tried to remove the jet contrail? I think removing it would eliminate that little bit of distraction.

Thanks Gene. Yes I should eliminate it. At first, I thought it looked fine since it matches the vertical line of the building on the left and the tower in the middle. Agree, it is a bit distracting.

I'm sure you already know this but for me, the easiest way to remove it is to select the side of the roof and then invert the selection. That will protect the edge of the roof when you remove the contrail. By using the healing brush, you can click on one end of the contrail, say at the roof edge, then hold down the shift key and click the healing brush tool at the other end of the contrail and it will automatically remove the whole length of it.

So many ways to achieve the same results in PS.

I prefer selecting the sky with the quick select brush...it takes a quick swipe in the sky area. Heck, for that roofline I might just use the polygonal lasso.

From there I use rubber stamp just at the roofline to get a bit of blue-sky separation between the roof and the contrail. Then I lasso the remaining contrail and use content aware fill (shift f5).

I don't use the shift-clicking the healing brush because it's always leaving smudgy traces of artifacts when I use it (even for easy stuff like thin power lines). Pretty much only trust the healing brush for dust spots.

[EDIT: In this case the step of selecting the sky is actually unnecessary: a simple aligned rubber stamp is all that's needed to put blue-sky space between roofline and contrail.]

gene without selection you can also use a blank layer. select the healing brush tool and make sure the current and below is selected in the tools options. then you option/alt click on the edge of the roof near the contrail. then position your healing brush tool at the edge of the roof/contrail and brush up towards the sky. i hope i make sense. it's hard to explain. maybe i would do a video for that.

Few from last Sunday - They forecast rain so instead of taking the old-classic-weekend Escort 'show' car I took the it's-supposed-to-just-be-a-daily Focus 'new project' car :rolleyes::rolleyes::lol:

This model Volvo was the car I learned how to drive on and my first ever car as a teenager. Passed down from Dad when I first got my license..
Brings back memories. And I almost never see these anymore.

Speaking of 15mm, I am tempted to replace my CV 15 III with the Laowa 15/2. Anyone here look into it? It would be a better option for me since it takes filters but I know next to nothing about it otherwise.

Still wanting the 100-400 first though. I really need to find a way to slim the gear down some more to justify the 100-400. Might consider selling the 70-200 as there seems to be some overlap there, and the 100-400 seems to be better optically from what I'm seeing.

Right now I have:
- CV 15
- Batis 18
- Batis 25
- FE 24-70/4
- Sigma 35/1.4
- FE 55/1.8
- FE 85/1.8
- FE 90 Macro
- FE 70-200/4

The top photo was lit with a strobe only camera right. The bottom one has a fill from a bare speedlight attached to the X1T transmitter.

This photo was lit with a 3 lights setup. two speedlights on the stripboxes with grid. The main light was with a strobe(Xplor600) camera right on a impact 40" collapsable beauty dish.

Upper Amicalola Falls on the way to the bridge. A scene with lots of texture so it will look better at higher resolution.

Amazing looking waterfalls. I can almost feel the cool mist on my face as I view the larger image. Thanks for the link to it.
