kodak 800 film w/ 35/2v4 pre asph
Taken with Leica M6, Kodak 800 film, and Summicron 35/2 v4 pre-asph "king of bokeh" lens. Film is OK for budget drugstore 800 film, with Walgreens processing, but the grain and over-saturation of the film shows when enlarged. For this image, I used Picasa to slightly de-saturate. The bokeh probably looks fine on-screen, but when enlarged on an 8x10 print, the out of focus trees in the center almost start to have a fish scale type effect, similar to the reference here: http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=004LWx although less dramatic and highlighted than what I've seen with other lenses.
