Cemetery Bad Pyrmont.... Some winter impressions

Two days ago my wife suggested it was time to do something because the christmas break turned out to be quite boring for all of us. Constant hanging around in the living room is not very satisfying. Thank god the weather decided to be warm and nearly all the snow was melted away. So we gathered our stuff together (the equipment for geocaching and the camera-gear; not to forget the umbrella since it was raining...) and we went off.

After finding the cache and having a bit of sightseeing in Hameln we went to the nearby town of Bad Pyrmont to visit the cemetery.

It's been nearly two months since i've seen one and now i was anxious to try out my new lens: A prime lens made in the german democratic republic about 30 years ago: a Pentacon 29 mm 2.8. It works well with a converter for EOS-Cameras  and here you can see for yourself:

This one was taken in Hameln City; it's a detail of a sculpture at the marketplace. 

Now for the cemtery Bad Pyrmont:

The lens has a strange circular effect in the background, you'll notice it very clear at the second image. But can notice it slightly at the third one too: The bokeh is strangly distorted in a slight circular manner. 

The lens requires a bit of practice since everyting is handled manually. The aperture as well as the focus. Especially getting tack sharp pictures is difficult. But i think the effort is worth it.

This last Image is a good example for the extraordinary quality of the lens:

All in all not bad for a lens that was less than 50€ including the converter...
