Fort Krelov XVII

In Europe, there was often (unfortunately) a war over anything. Let me introduce you to one of the four fortresses Fort XVII. It was built in 1851-1854 (my house in 1876). The fortresses protected the city of Olomouc from the west.

The morning trip with my Pentacon Six (analog medium format) and D800 (DSLR)

Battle of DSLR (full frame) vs SLR(medium format)

Another of my attempts to compare the incomparable. Both devices were equipped with manual lenses Carl Zeiss Jena. The photo was taken almost at noon (it disadvantaged the SLR with ISO 400). I always take pictures in fully manual mode. Judge the result for yourself. The first image shows the raw color output from the DSLR. The second image is identical only in monochrome mode and basic adjustments. The third image is an analog monochrome medium format (with a long path of developing, developer tempering, rinsing, drying, and final negative scanning). They forgot that photographing a beautiful terrain unevenness at noon is nonsense … the SLR still comes out of that fight with honor. In short, you have just only “one shot” and show what you can do. 📷📷📷
