Alex, your photography is starting to hit the sweet spot. I really think the snail photos are great, as are the others.

Thank you, all, your compliments are a reason to try harder and better :)

PF, this Alpin, I will open a thread, it deserves it and it's going to be a long process.

Mike, thanks a lot, the merit is for the snail who was passing by. I'm thinking seriously about getting that GS-1, after the cameras I'm using is a true point and shoot for me, sadly winter is coming and batteries don't like cold :)

Two more photos, testing a new Rodenstock Ysarex 127mm f/4.7 from a 110A Polaroid land camera, just enough for 4x5.

I was looking for a lens able to fold the camera and keep the lens inside and only this one and the Ektar 127mm was said that fitted... I found Ysarex first and it's all good as I was told, contrasty, sharp enough and shutter is a Prontor, bulletproof and accurate as the first day. Film is TMax 100.

Thank you for looking,

Very nice, Alex. I like the second one best because of the human figure which enhances the reflections in water.

TMax 100 in 4x5, if well developed and processed, must be something to behold. If you also got a good lens to match it may be B&W heaven.

Pure magic there, Alex. I miss using my 110B, not only for the wonderful roll films Polaroid had back then, but for that Ysarex lens. I sold my original one at auction, but eventually found another to replace it years later. I hope to get it converted to 4x5 someday.

Thank you, Julio and Phil.
I took the first photo and I walked 10 meters to the left and I saw the second photo so very quietly I moved the camera behind him and took a new exposition focusing middle way between trees and the man so all would be on focus as it turned it out.
