Default Some Sidewalk Scenes

Shot with the E-620 and the new $62 lens I received from KEH this morning. It was graded EX+ but it really doesn't look like it was ever mounted before. All shots were at various focal lengths and ISO 500. Everything was PP with Noise Ninga and ACR 6.1

I like the green roof shot, it actually fits in a way to the bi weekly shoot out of symmetry. Which lens did you use?

I like 1 and 3 a lot and for much the same reason, repeating patterns. 1 has a repeating pattern with different textures and 3 repeating pattern with the same texture. Your window shot has the same problem my own have, out of kilter. There are several folk on these forums that do great window photos and try as I might I don't get close. Hey, yours is a good lens test.

Thanks you for the comments

I find it difficult to handhold long manual focus telephotos and crop in a precise manner. I guess I just need more practice. I am quite pleased with the sharpness in these considering many were shot near an EFL of 400mm hand held with the image stabilizer turned off.

The lens is a Vivitar Series 1 (version 3). It's built like a tank and I am finding it a fun lens to shoot with. It has remarkable Macro capabilities. This version 3 lens is much lighter than the original S1 which was built by Kiron I believe.

Hey turbines: something about the location of those shots look familiar. Were they taken in the Greensboro area by chance?
