Voigtlander Bessa II: First image

Ran my first roll of Ilford HP5 through my 1951 Voigtlander Bessa II with the Color-Skopar lens. Processed D76 1:1. I love this camera.

Congratulations. Into the light of a winter sky is a challenge with B&W. I'm big fan of the 105mm Color Skopar.

Very nice. I love the framing. This format is really something to work with.
