Jeff, the white stuff looks nice!
Matt, The IQ on the 24 is Outrageous! The skill behind the lens exceeds the quality of the images! The B&W's are Sick! Good Show!

Wednesday's post - from Mustique. Not much going on here. I'm fundamentally bored by Caribbean islands. Shot with my M9 in heavy rain. Slight rangefinder fogging, which cured itself in an hour or so.
Visited the arboretum last Sunday under intermittent snowfall. It was my first experience with a rangefinder in snow, and I took 24/2.8 and MATE with M8. Criticisms most welcome.

Love these 2 Osman! Bravo!
Thank you Steve and Lloyd. It is very heartening to earn praise from masters.
I used a gray card for color calibration, and was pleasantly surprised to pp for the real colors, though they seem a bit desaturated as you said, Lloyd.
Steve/Lloyd/DavidE: Thanks. I'm having fun with the 24 lux! I'm moving my office in a few weeks. Maybe, i'll have some photos from some place different. Cheers.

Years of drought here in northern CA have left the lake pretty shallow. Just a couple of inches in the foreground; stone, twigs and the patterns of the sand show through, and the clouds reflected...click for larger -

Thanks, LLoyd. M8 and Elmarit 28 ASPH - I've edited the original post with this info.
Woody,excellent framing & rich, saturated color! Nice!!
Tofa, Beautiful tone symmetry & reflection!
Matt, it did snow in the city as well. In fact, Istanbul was covered in snow for the last week, but rainfall swept away the white blanket now. The arboretum is very close to the city, but, being in the open, it is always colder there.
Looks like the natives are restless again.....
M9, 50 lux'
Jaimes, I like the 3d with the dor inn the center, it the entrance the the 4th dimention.

Osman, what a great series of snow images. I didn't even realize that it snowed in Istanbul.
James, the slightly desaturated color works really well in that urban image.
I really enjoy visiting this part of the forum and seeing the vast diversity of images . . . well done all!
This is photo of a lone island on a tranquil pond at the Abbey of the Genesee, home of the Monks Bread bakery. Time was late fall.
Thanks for looking and continually posting wonderful images.
M8.2 w/Konica M-Hexanon Dual 21/35 @ 35mm.
Jklotz: Nice color and framing with the brick.
Jlp: Beautiful B&W image. Thanks for sharing.
A couple from the other day at the Pike Place Market. Thanks for looking. Cheers.

Ok Matt, the first shot is So Cool! Everything in it "plays" together! The old man's face is a photographer's dream! The light around his beard! The detail of the guitar strings sticking out at the front! The juxtaposition of "modern man" (Elvis Costello's 6th cousin ,twice removed!)walking behind the old country man! The hustle & bustle of the truck entering....just Explodes with Verve! Love these types of images! Once again....I tip my 10 Gallon Hat to you Sir!
Lloyd, Matt, and Steve--thanks for your kind comments. The B&W conversion clearly surpassed (to my eye) the color rendition. Glad you enjoyed the photo.
We have a beech tree in our yard that doesn't lose its leaves until the spring (the leaves do turn brown, though). Shot with a M9 and 24 lux.

Thanks, Lloyd. I do like that M9 and 24 lux combination. They create the magic. I just have to remember to get out of the way.
