Zeiss 135mm f2 apo sonnar lens

I’ve never seen a more perfect backyard in my life.

This photo was taken in Mystic, CT as I was walking off a lobster roll lunch through the quaint little neighborhoods on the water. The sailboats are just so tranquil and serene that I can’t imagine the owner of this house, or anyone in the neighborhood for that matter, having any ounce of stress in their lives.

It was shot with one of my favorite travel lenses, the Zeiss 135mm f2 APO SONNAR, and for all the photogs out there, yes I am aware of the vignetting here, but I actually like it. I don’t think that vignetting deserves the automatic criticism it gets in most online forums. Depending on how the vignetting is rendered, it can actually add to the look and feel of a photograph just like quality bokeh can. Choppy busy bokeh can ruin a photo, and so can poor quality vignetting, but on the flip side, properly rendered vignetting can turn an average photo into something special just like a creamy soft bokeh does for the right subjects.
