Used a combination of open source tools for this Panorama.

Four images shot on my Olympus E-M1 with adapted Leica 35mm Summaron lens at f3.5

Imported RAW images to Darktable then exported as TIFF

Stiched TIFF in Hugin and and saved result at TIFF

Processed final TIFF in Darktable using tone curves, saturation, equalizer and a low pass filter for structure

Another image from the test roll in the Argus a-four

Light and shadow play. Simple and graphic, the kind of image where the soft corners don't hurt anything :-)

Brilliant stuff. Also related to Overconfidence Bias and Confirmation Bias.

I've seen this general pattern too frequently and too closely to ignore.

Another from the Argus a-four. The sins of the lens are minimized at this distance and highest aperture, and the contrast is nice.

I did make perspective corrections in post because the distortion did not help the image.

Finished a test roll of in the argus a-four I got for free from a friend a few weeks ago. More misses than hits since it is scale focusing (no rangefinder), max shutter of 1/200 and manual everything including cocking the shutter.

The lens on this little camera, a Cintar 44mm f3.5, is quite awful to be honest. I shot everything around f8-f16 and still have a small sharp spot in the center and VERY soft corners. Still, it does look quite vintage and certainly very LOMO so this is a perfect hipster camera :-)

This is my favorite shot from the roll. I captured a couple of others that are pretty cool and I will share them as well.
