Steve, your flower series is awesome!
Matt, the 35 lux really fits you, though I am so used to your using the 24 lux as your paintbrush. Is yours the newest version or the prior? Lovely images as usual, and the processing rocks!
Daniel, your seascapes continue to blow my mind and expand the creative options for the M system!
Hhahha...whoops...shows what I get for surfing those images at work...
M9 and 50 mm f/2 "Rigid Summicron" from the 50's....what a lens!
And one more from the teeny-tiny red scale Leitz Screw Mount Elmar 50 mm f/3.5, also on M9 via adapter...
Thanks, Steve and Mohammed! I got lucky in being in the right place at the right time...but so much of photography is just that...luck .

Here's one from this morning in Tokyo. M9 with 50mm Elmar-M @ f2.8.
I enjoy this thread and am in awe of everyone's submissions. Keep it going!
On our second day in Sinop, we visited the infamous prison that was converted to a museum a decade ago. In spite of the sunny June morning, we couldn't help sharing the gloom that still haunted the place.
What did the inmates feel? A writing on a wall declared: "Neither my struggle ended nor my love". It was impossible to keep the tears back. After half an hour, we began to feel like intruders, paparazzi after sensational shots in a place of silent suffering. So we quietly stowed away our cameras and sat down in the courtyard surrounded by fences and guard towers, now empty. Does time really fly?
M8 with 21mm Elmarit and 28mm Summicron.
Thank you, Don. Color EfexPro.
Some grab shots with the new-to-me 75mm APO-Summicron. First three wide open the rest f/2.8 I think.
