in the 'mercadillo' of Puntagorda, La Palma
Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.2
boymerang -- I like that look you have going there. Sort of an old filmy sort of thing, and better executed than most of this sort of stuff I have seen. I'd be interested to see more.
Here is a strange little portrait, catching a friend in thought...a little zombie like, but I like it. I probably like it BECAUSE it is a little zombie like...
M9, 35/1.4 ASPH at 1.4, 1/15th, ISO 1250. The M9 sure does low light a lot better than the M8 did! This was with no luminance noise reduction.
M9, Summilux 50 asph @ 1.4
Bob -- nope, maybe she was contemplating her scotch...there were some drawings on the wall though...
edit -- thanks very much Lloyd! It's a lovely bar...the bar at one of the older and more character-rich hotels here.
Awesome image Jaap!
Thanks Bob, Lloyd and Alnitak
A couple more from my walk around London yesterday. I love the way the old and new are juxtaposed in London. This is St. Vedast Foster Lane, not far from St. Paul's. M9 + 50mm Summilux, f/5.6, 1/400s, ISO 160.
Another church buried in the modern towers; St. Mary-le-Bow. M9 + 50mm Summilux, f/5.6, 1/400s, ISO 160.
And then I just couldn't resist the primroses. M9 + 50mm Summilux, f/1.4, 1/250s, ISO 160.
As Time Goes By..
M9, 50 Noct
My gosh, go away for 2 days, and there are 2 new pages of amazing images!!!
Everyone, GREAT Shots, and at the fear of forgetting someone...
--Steve: Goshdangit man, that picture frame shot is truly perfection. Wow! Magic, pure magic, exactly how I'd like to see it.
-- Jeff: Lovely bokeh on that flower shot!
-- Woody: Great composition, timing, and sense of static vs motion
-- Dierk: Pure genius, my friend! Amazing work you are putting up here...to name a few, the sky shots, the cracked earth shots, the bamboo capture...all magnificent
-- Knorp: The couch series is stellar
-- O.C. Lovely
-- Bob: Lovely portrait
-- Jaap: Nice candle and dynamic range work
Sorry if I left you out. So many wonderful shots that i missed some
Now a few of my own from this week-end:
Jeff; One of my favorite churches. Nice images.
Steve: Nice treatment to the photograph image. Really evocative of the era of the portraits (based on her hairstyle).
Ashwin: You've been wandering around Fremont. Your selective focus and PP really distills the essence out of the subject. Nice.
Cheers, Matt (Geez this turned out very long. I'm going to have to quit my day job!)
Sailboats on Lake Union and the Amtrak Station. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Matt.
1. M9; 35mm f/1.4; 1/2800 @ f/1.7; ISO 160
2. M9; 35mm f/1.4; 1/180 @ f/1.4; ISO 160
Matt, both of the above images are lovely, especially the second. I love the seated figure!
By the way, Matt. I missed that you took the picture of the dog in the window. Awesome stuff. Was that at Pike's place?
By the way, great seeing you at your workspace today! Thanks to GetDPI!
Ashwin: Thanks. Stop in any time. The dog's usually in the window of the shop at the SE corner of 1st Ave. & Virginia St. (across from the Virginia Inn). Cheers, Matt.
Another church from my Sunday walk; in all I think I photographed seven or eight churches. This is St. Clement Danes. It's now an RAF chapel/church, and was repaired after being burned out in the Blitz. They actually left behind shrapnel damage on the exterior of the church as a reminder of the Blitz. There has been a church of some type on this site since the 9th century, when the Danes ruled much of England.
Imposing when standing at the entrance (I think that was the point). M9 + 21mm f/2.8 Elmarit-M ASPH, f/5.6, 1/1000s, ISO 160
Interior, M9 + 21mm f/2.8 Elmarit-M ASPH, f/2.8, 1/24s, ISO 160. Note the tiles; each black one is a regimental emblem from the RAF.
Shrapnel damage from a Nazi bomb in the Blitz. M9 + 21mm f/2.8 Elmarit-M ASPH, f/2.8, 1/24s, ISO 160.
If you stand back, you can see where the bomb fell based on the pattern of the shrapnel damage. Now that I think about it, that last one may have worked better as a B&W image, but I'm not much of a B&W guy.
Matt, I took that picture in Western Australia, near my house at a beach called Iluka. Thanks for your compliments Really like the contrast in your 35/1.4 asph shots, reminded me how good that lens is, and makes me want to go shoot with mine!
Ashwin, Always tough to pick a favorite with you! Maybe the "Devil" image...(Forgive Me Father)!
Matt...B&W's are Smokin!
Jeff, Excellent Set & History!
@Jaap, wonderful still live
@Steve, thanks. Yes, it is getting warmer now
thanks a lot
great B/W shots from your weekend, I like the selective DOF of the wide open Leica lenses and the way, you use it
thanks, yes, it was the Leica Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4You actually used a Leica to take that first photo? Very cool.
here is the image with full exif and here an other one like this (the aperture is wrong, was f/22
This one is painted with light
camara on a tripod, shutter on 8 sec (I never needed B), ISO automatic off, lights off
after starting the shutter, I use a pocket lamp (normal works best for me) and 'paint' the light over the object from different positions
I found this technic at Emil Shild, he does it with large format cameras!
Pictures like a dream, here is his site have a look
Leica Macro-Elmar-M 90mm f/4
Matt, Ashwin, Jeff, dierk, great stuff all. The inspiration just never quits on this thread!!
Only have a second to post but Dierk I love the new sunset shot and the lettuce? Stunners...
Missed a few days and almost unable to catch up,-
a compliment to All, outstanding posts.
[QUOTE=ashwinrao1;193687]Now a few of my own from this week-end:
With an M9, not even picking up your kids from school is boring. M9 with ME 90.

One from this morning before work.
M8, 35 Cron ASPH:
Man, great stuff.
Ashwin, I love the second group of images.
Dierk, that cabbage is really cool. The veins look remarkable.
Lloyd, wonderful reflection and colors.
do you know GigaPan?
I have the beta model since it came out 3 years ago and used it with the Leica D-Lux 3 for hundreds of panoramas.
I made high resolution panos with up to about 800 MPix!! stitched from more than 200 fotos of the 10MPix Leica D-Lux 3 like this one.
How does it work?
You just tell the Gigapan the lower left picture and the upper right picture and it does the rest fully automatic, up to 360 degreens up, down and arround.
And the GogaPan with the stitcher program works also like a shift lens. (See the link above)
If of any interest, you may find my gigapans from La Palma here at gigapan
With double click you may zoom in almost endless.
Why am I posting this here?
The new model EPIC 100 works with the M8 and M9!
Imagine the resolution of a pano made with the M9 with the 90mm, you can print it 3m wide with 300 DPI
for $449.00, less than the 21mm wide angel viewfinder
3 from today. All M9 + Summilux 50 asph.
C&C very welcome!
