a little bit off topic but in doing a little research I was sad to see that Donna Michelle had passed away in 2004 at age 58. that cover shown in charjohncarter excellent photo has to be one of the most iconic Playboy covers ever and he certainly made good use of it in his shot.

Sanders McNew posted a couple of threads a couple of years ago with some fantastic shots from a summar. I'm away from my PC at the moment, maybe someone could post links to them. I recall he had a summar that had been cleaned by Sherry Krauter.

Sorry to hear about Donna I always enjoyed filling her tank and washing her windshield (at the gas station). Iconic is right, but then I saw her so....... Thanks MISH.

I recently bought one advertised as beeing cloudy and having cleaning marks. Neither was the case. I just developed my first roll and I have to say it compares well to my Contax Sonnar 2/50 pre war. So all in all a very underrated lens.

Does the Summar's "signature" help achieve these kind of shots, or is it largely a matter of film-developer choice?

Edit: looking back over the thread, I wish to add ChipMcD's shot of the girders to the above comment, and also to say that I really like all the shots posted. They seem to manage a proper blend of photographic qualities with subject matter.
Oh Hello 'Traveler'
Just found this Thread again and saw your Quote
Aside from the Summars dreaminess, it's low contrastalso helps
In creating that retro classic old World 'Feel'
As for Film/ developer ... It was triX and Rodinal
Thanks much for your Lovely Comment ... Best- H
