As for 50s, I currently have the Nocti, the CV Nokton (it's my second copy, I'm a fan), a Cron (early version, and a sweet lens), and a 50/2 Summitar, which my father purchased in Germany in 1946 along with a Leica IIIc, which I now own.
One more from today.

Nope, no flash at all. Just the 90 Cron, and the M8.2 set at ISO 1250. I shot RAW and processed these in ACR and converted to BW using Alien Skin filters.
I find these Leica lenses really suck in the light when wide open and I got lucky with ISO 1250 as I have in the past. Now, ISO 2500 is another story. Thanks!
All the best mate
Thanks for the kind words but I must give credit to that 90 Cron as well as the processing. I added vignetting around most of those as well as adjusted the levels a bit, but the lens and that M8 sensor did most of the work. Its a great combo!
If I am ever in the Denver area I will let you know and I will take you up on that offer! Thanks!

[QUOTE=MurkySugarSparkle;107171]M8.2 Elmar 18mm - Montreal Botanical Gardens
Man oh man...that Leica 18 Elmar is just an incredible lens (well,it appears to be from all of the great shots here with it) - Very nice work!
One of my wife's co-workers, and her son dropped by last night.
Quite the character:
A couple from the 28 Cron Asph at f/2.8 and f/2, respectively.

Wow, there have been some incredible images in this thread over the past few days. Things are really cooking here.
I don't have anything new except for more shots of trees and clouds. In processing them, I'm trying to emphasize the texture of the clouds. Also hoping to achieve a more subtle result overall. There always seem to be trade-offs (drama versus subtlety, sharpness versus even textures, contrast versus gradual tones).

Murky Sugar - love your second shot,
Lloyd, I love your second shot as well!

They are both with the Zeiss 50 1.5 sonnar in sharp mode (around f6)

Just this guy you know
Diggin way back in my archives... all these on a Leica CL with 35mm. Tri X scanned on a Howtek 4500
I;m a big fan of film images, and follow the analog camera threads. Love to see these posted here:

M8.2 and 24 Elmarit at 2.8
I was inspired by the portrait of the old man at the kodachrome project site and came up with this one...
50 Sonnar 1.5
Lloyd, wicked sharp! And Steve, that's a terrific screendoor shot. Great color.
I've been traveling and only managed one grim and one cutesy shot from my hotel window.
One from today. Mountain wildflowers:
75 Cron, wide open:
posted these two in the motorcycle thread as well: m8 and 28 cron at the antique MC swap meet in Rhinebeck NY
This weekend we went to celebrate the 80th birthday of a relative and it was a big family gathering. I went with my wife and three girls, and many of my family had not seen any of the girls before. I must say they all looked beautiful and I was the proudest Dad ever. My girls all of a sudden seemed very grown up.
I took these with the M8.2 and 35mm f/2.5 Summarit (which is a fantastic lens for the money). I missed the focus a bit on some of them though!
and a splash of colour as I waited for my wife to full the car with diesel on the way back home:
More playing on a rainy day. Dreaming of sunny ones.
