Hikone Castle (Gakkenflex)

That’s Hikone Castle peeking through the trees. Taken with Gakkenflex.

This is one of my favourite photos, taken during my recent holiday to Japan.  This is one of the main buildings in Hakone Castle.  In terms of the photo, notice the trademark Gakkenflex traits of having soft, blurred edges, with a clear focus in the centre.

This camera requires a lot of manual focussing and, as you can imagine, if you don’t get it right, the whole thing will be blurry.  When you get it right, though, it will look stunning.
