The lonely tree #2

What I do enjoy in the photos of this tree is the fact that hardly any post processing has been done on these images. The snow and the sky were white, the tree almost black with very few grey tones. I do have to say that I’m awfully impressed with that Pentax 645 A 200mm f/4 lens I bought cheap second hand. It is a manual focus lens and that is a bit of a hassle on an autofocus camera like my Pentax 645NII where there are none of the traditional focussing aids like split image or microprism ring available. Luckily the focus indicator lights up in the camera when the subject is in focus, that is at least something.
