The Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 is put to a classic portrait test, albeit with a cooperative aspen tree, except that it swayed in the vigorous wind a bit.

I’ve elected to present this image in black and white because there are no significant color errors to report, but mainly because the lighting in color is less interesting than the ability to control the contrast and tonal range and to bring out the very fine details in the tree trunk. What caught my eye was indeed the shapes of the two key trees in this image.
