It’s May so Cottage Life is recurring. On the island, many of the things one sees and wishes to photograph are far away thus must be captured through fairly specialized lenses which tend to impose their perceptions, particularly when the lenses are elderly and actually not that elite. Here are three of those.
The lens in question is my Tokina f5.6 400mm, which has a story attached.
I processed these in Lightroom. It has a superb noise-reduction module, which on this occasion I wished had negative settings to crank up the vintage-telephoto grainy dreaminess. Which would probably betray truth-before-beauty. But anyhow, Lightroom doesn’t.
[Update: Actually (see the comments), it turns out that Lightroom does.]
