I took this a few years ago in Tribeca N.Y., with my pinhole camera which is medium format, and 120 degree angle of view.

It is quite soft, but that might be something from being a pinhole camera. I have no experience with those. Did you intend to leave the reflection of the tripod on the hydrant? It is subtle but might be better without.

Pinhole camera images do tend to be a little soft. No lens, after all.
How long was the exposure on that shot?

Hello Tom,

This exposure was 1 1/2 minutes, with an f-stop of 128.

Hello,

Thank you for the comments, just to let you know the f-stop of 128 on this pinhole camera is the optimal pinhole for this camera I am using and this is as sharp as it is going to get for a pinhole picture, there are pinhole cameras that have less than optimal pinholes on them and the pictures come out even more soft than this, actually they come out pretty blurry.

There is no lens on this camera the pinhole is the lens if you go to google.com and type in the wordpinhole you will have a lot of information tolook at that will amaze you and keep you buzy for hours.
