Mamiya 7 – Lovely effects by light fall off

South Downs National Park, England

Cattle Trough – South Downs National Park, England – 800x640mm limited edition print

This photograph was taken on my Mamiya 7II camera with the 43mm lens. The lovely blue effect around the outside of the images is created by under exposure of the snow, the blue being reflected from the sky. This under exposure around the edges is caused not by vignetting or post production, but by the light fall off inside the ultra wide 43mm lens, letting more light reach the center of the 6x7cm transparency then the edges.
