Jim: As always your work Inspires me a lot , those lens are all great But that Cooke sure does give you the detail of what your shooting, But all of those shots are very good
and I know deep down your darn happy with those lens you, have obtained for your own use : Happy Holidays
When one's life Ends, then one becomes Life's history !
Thanks for another great photo post. I really liked the shot of Mr. Jolson's '33 Cadillac. Even beyond his time here, we can still enjoy it. If I ever find myself out toward the west coast again, I'll be sure to set aside a day in Reno for this pitstop.
Looking at the shots you captured, I find myself leaning toward the look of the Pinkham & Smith over the Struss almost every time. Soft focus and out of focus add an artistic view I like in stills. The shots represented by the Cooke have so much detail, I admit that I find myself curiously looking at the front of my under-used camera and thinking how it could appreciate the ability to snap up that much detail from such a lens.

I like mostly the Struss, but the P&S is also very nice, it has those round kinda bokeh reflections, which sometimes are good, sometimes are distracting.
The '21 Copper Rolls Royce Struss is the one I liked the most, it really struck me, but the P&S is also kinda interesting, after looking for a while at the P&S and the Str. the Cooke looks kinda uninteresting. Great work
