South perth foreshore – a few stitches from Easter Sunday – Nex5n with the Minolta 21mm f2.8, 28mm f2 and Carl Zeiss 50mm f1.7 Planar

One of my favorite places in Perth is the South Perth river foreshore. As soon as you exit your car in the carpark and look over at the grass that meets the beautiful swan river which is just the foreground to our magnificent city here in Perth, you have to be overwhelmed by the view, it is simply breathtaking. Ever since Lisa and I went for a photo walk there last year I had been eager to go back, Easter Sunday presented just such an occasion. I had been eager to shoot the scene on better film than last year, and am keen to get my roll of Kodak Ektar back which I shot at the same time. However I also took my Nex5n and a few lenses so here are a couple of stitches I took from the day too that I would like to share with you.

This first shot is a 7 image stitch taken with my recently acquired Minolta 21mm f2.8 manual focus lens on Nex5n. I love that I managed to get the walkers in this stitch. I really like this lens, it gives you a very wide feel yet still maintains straight lines. This shot was taken earlier in the morning around 9.30am.

This shot was taken taken using my Carl Zeiss 50mm f1.7 planar manual focus lens. I have had this lens a while a really like it’s sharpness and colours, however I do find it suffers a little from CA. I like all the detail in the building in this shot. This is an 11 image stitch from left to right.

This shot was taken on my recently acquired Minolta 28mm f2 lens. I bought this lens as fast wide to mainly shoot live bands in lowlight but have just been starting to test it. It seems to be a reasonable performer, but what I like most about this shot is the fact that it shows both river shores on either side of me. This is a 21 image stitch shot in a grid.

I hope you enjoyed having a quick look at these couple of stitches from my easter Sunday on the south Perth river foreshore.
