Beautiful work as usual Helena! :) The first two are especially spectacular. And I always enjoy your pathway to the light (like in "Walk Into the Light" and "Road to Nowhere"). I like the contrast of the old fuel pump set against the floral background.

Some random shots from Japan:

Thank you reza! The last one is awesome, like a scene from a movie.

I'm still thinking abut selling mine. The Zeiss is better, but I much prefer shooting with 35L, so we'll see...

Thank you Helena!
Previously I also had 35L, but sold it after getting1.4/35 ZE.
Yes, the Zeiss is better optically, and it feels rock solid. But 35L is much easier to use due to its AF. Still miss it sometimes.
Sigma 35 F1.4 and Canon 35 F2 IS will hit market maybe from next month, and optically they should be better than the current L version. I'm interested in the IS version from Canon, but let's see how the review will be. I really like 35mm point of view, so for me 1.4/35 ZE and 35mm F2 IS Canon give a great combination. I can get smooth bokeh and excellent drawing from the Zeiss, while from Canon I can expect ease-of-use and versatility of IS.

That sounds like a great idea. If I didn't already have 35L that is probably what I would do too. I have sold four other lenses and have decided to keep both 35L and ZE 35/1.4 for a while. I use 35mm for 90-95% of everything I shoot, so I don't feel too bad about having two such lenses. :) To be honest though, most of the time I find 35L to be good enough for me.

Very nice as usual Helena.
I like your last shot Reza, indeed like a scene from a movie.

^I just looked at that on your Flickr page J-B. It is a sweet dog photo and your back story makes me sad.

Thank you Jochen!

That's so sweet and sad at the same time! I'll have a look at your flickr asap (I'm really busy at the moment) and see the rest.
