London Chinese New Year

Photo Information
Had to use the 300mm setting of the SMC Pentax-F 100-300mm f4.5-5.6 on my 1996 MZ-5 as there was a barrier across the road from where the Parade started. 2008 outdated Konica VX 400 rated 250 ASA.

The Chinese certainly know how to brighten up the start of their year, the colours are definitely bright. I guess the "mist" in the bottom left hand corner is caused by obstacles between you and the subject

Image is amazing considering the film type. Happy Chinese new year to all. -The Konica "monochrome" was a bear to use because the inconsistancies in the Ag coating alley that was a production problem back to the Sakura days - I personally made VERY big bucks because of this issue (but thats another story) Thanks, - t

Yes -- the 'mist' WAS out of focus obstacles -- I put this into a DPI competition at my Club and the Judge said I 'should have got CLOSER' when I had to use 300mm across the street as there was a barrier there preventing access to the parade characters !
been a member of Pentax Club since the Ron Spillman era! Got COMPUTERISED at last - DIGITISED? Taken the PLUNGE - BUT FILM STILL RULES !!!
