Although the sky today was a hazy blue - it can be much deeper when humidity is lower - I got what I have tried for for a couple of days. To the A7R is fitted a Kipon Shift adaptor, Canon FD mountl; then a 20mm f/2.8 Canon FDn lens; then an 8X Red Minolta AC filter; finally, a Camdiox 10000 (10 stop neutral density, sometimes called a big stopper though this is actually a trade name of Lee Filters). 30 seconds at f/5.6, ISO 100. Quite amazing posting from the two couples on the right, who appear not have moved an inch during the whole exposure, unlike the guy on the left. Several people walked across the shot of course.
In-camera JPEG with some contrast added in Photoshop, as even the highest contrast setting didn't produce the punch I wanted. The shift adaptor is at 8mm shift.
