I joined a few friends on a 1 day photography outing to Morib Beach. It was a cloudy day and not much sunlight in the morning and by the time it is mid-day, the scene became very contrasty. Having only a circular polarizer on hand. here are some of the more acceptable pictured.
Captured with Hasselblad 80mm f2.8
I had a quick chance to play with the Hasselblad adaptor and used the Hasselblad 80mm 2.8 lens. This is a very nice lens to use, the color is not as contrasty and pleasant on skin tone. Even with such a high contrast situation, My friend’s (Danny Liau) skin tone is still pleasant.
The lens is a bit too narrow for landscape, so after a few snaps, I switched over to my wider Nikkor 17-35mm f2.8 and had a bit of fun with it.

The next picture was an experiment. It was under exposed by 5 stops of light on purpose and post procesed in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom to mimic a heavy grained film. Any comments are welcomed.
