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'

As for Film/ developer ... It was triX and Rodinal
Thanks much for your Lovely Comment ... Best- H
