    The Pier, Part 2

    Torbert MacDonald park, so yes you're right! As for the cityscape I did not want to make it a substantial part of this picture. I wish there were only water to see to make a more minimalistic photo. For this shot I kept the houses and lights at the top of the frame as dark as possible to not...

    The Pier, Part 2

    I agree. A well solidly executed high contrast black and white shot was really the goal here. Not quite as minimalist as I would like it to be to hang it on the wall, but it will still do.

    The Pier, Part 2

    I have shot this one before but went back to try a slightly different take on it and hopefully add it to my black and white candidates that might eventually make it on my wall in printed form. The Pier, Part 2 by Johannes Bengani-Lutz

    Sunset and Skate Park

    Very cool. This opens up a whole lot of options for interesting photos. I like the photos already!

    The Mystic Pier

    Very different take on it. I see how it can work for some. Why I still prefer the orginal is primarily due to the space between end of pier and horizon that is lost after straightening. Pulling the sides up instead and leaving the center in place would be interesting to try --- Sent from...

    The Mystic Pier

    It is the fisheye lens indeed. I straightened it out in post but didn't like the result too much, so I left it curved since it seemed more interesting to me. I might give the straight version a shot again and post it here.

    The Mystic Pier

    This is the pier at Torbert MacDonald Park, Mystic River Reservation in Medford, MA. Always thought that this would make a nice subject but wasn't quite sure as to how to put it in the right light. Taking away the light altogether and shooting it at night has been the most successful approach so...

    Going fisheye

    The one you linked in the other thread shows up as completely manual though,or am I mistaken? I was under the assumption that Samyang/Rokinon only make manual lenses. Sent from Tapatalk. Please excuse brevity and typos

    Going fisheye

    I agree. For the price they are a lot of fun to use. And especially for a super wide angle lens the lack of autofocus is not really a drawback. And I absolutely love a mechanical aperture ring. Sent from my SM-G930U using Tapatalk

    Going fisheye

    I haven't posted anything in a long time with a busy year coming to its end. Actively trying to get back into photography I want to share a few photos I took with my Samyang 7.5mm fisheye lens that I learned to love. Hope you like them.

    Misty morning

    Couldn't agree more. I love being out there driving and walking around without having a specific agenda.

    Misty morning

    I went for a hiking trip to Mount Monadnock and woke up to a beautiful dreamy morning. Made me realize again how much I love the mood of B&W images. Enjoy! Misty Morning 2 by Johannes Lutz, on Flickr Misty Morning 1 by Johannes Lutz, on Flickr

    Boston Night Skyline

    Good comments, I agree. I definitely have to give it another try at some point. I expected it to be very challenging to create a well thought through and executed picture and post processing, but it turned out to be even more difficult. I cheated with the stars. They were taken in Vermont the...

    Sunset Over Seattle, WA

    I like the composition a lot but am missing some contrast and some dramatic sunset light on the city. Bad luck with the clouds...

    The Alaska Gallery

    I think these photos have potential if edited the right way. I mostly like the composition however a wide angle lens would help a lot. Imo selective coloring is a way of editing that needs to be done very carefully and only to a select few photos of your gallery. A couple of comments/questions...

    On the playground

    My fiance and I were babysitting our friend's kid on Sunday morning. The weather was beautiful and he was in good mood, so I couldn't resist taking some photos. C&C welcome, especially regarding the editing. Thanks! On the playground by Johannes Lutz, on Flickr On the playground 2 by Johannes...
