Storm damage?

A photo from the first roll of medium format film I shot, back in October 2016 on my first medium-format camera. Most of the photos on the roll were uninspiring, and I rushed through it in my eagerness to see what results the camera would give. The camera in question was a Lubitel 166 Universal, a relatively no-frills Soviet era TLR, but one that (despite the difficulties I had in focussing and framing my shots) is capable of very nice results indeed, and this is one of (perhaps the) best of that first roll.

    1. Thanks Harry. It’s maybe a little soft when zoomed in – the Lubitel seems to have a bit of edge softness at certain apertures (or mine does, at least), and it’s not the easiest camera to achieve precise focus with at the best of times. A lot of patience and squinting and it will tend to produce good results though. 🙂
