Interesting mechanics on what appears to be a bridge. What is it? Or maybe it's a dam.

Please forgive me for saying so, but this one doesn't appear too sharp. Is it the flare, or ...?

It´s a weir beside a small bridge near my home. It´s part of a fish pond system and a public park where I shoot many of my landscape photos.

The combination of overexposure, Polypan F and flare makes the picture quite soft.
I really like the rays produced by this Tessar and the Polypan as well as the glowing highlights that I increase by overexposing and overdeveloping.

Thank you for your interest!
There are already two books with my Rollei 35 photographs. The first one is no longer available, but I have some of the second one left. See posts after #282 for a look at it and some buyer feedback.
I´m currently working on a third edition with a working title "500 pictures from 500 rolls".
This is quite time consuming, but I hope to finish it by mid 2020.
