Kiev Pano

Originally uploaded by Chris Bloom
While in the Drakensberg I took a series of shots from outside the chalet with the intent of creating a panorama at a later date. Using Panorama Maker 4 I stitched six of them together and then cropped out about a third of the final image to get this result.

Some Samples From The Fed 5

Rushed a roll of Fuji Superia 200 through my 'New' Fed 5 on Sunday. Tried to see how well it worked in different lighting conditions. The only problems I encountered were not being able to see the full frame in the viewfinder due to wearing spectacles and the tendancy for the light meter to give too low a reading in bright sunlight resulting in overexposed shots. I will maybe under expose by a stop or two when I encounter those conditions in future.
