Medium format Photography

The following images are taken with my beloved medium format camera.
It's an old Eastern-Germany made fully manual SLR, with a Zeiss lens.
The frame size is 60mm by 60mm, resulting in a four times larger area
of the image compread to regular film.
The scans come out at 25 Megapixels using my simple Epson 2400 flatbed
scanner. Unfortunately, the scanner can't capture the full luminosity of the
original slides. With this camera, I generally use the Fujifilm Velvia roll film.
The server of this site has a size limit of 800KB, so the images are compressed
and some actually reduced in size from 25 to 16 Megapixels to match this limit
