Great shot. That shadow is awesome.
Thank you Lloyd,
one more picture...
I appreciate Your words Lloyd
Handcarved wooden clown. Diminished the contrast a little bit. Unfortunately could not get rid of the harsh light, while shooting, on some parts of this shiny polished wooden guy.
In laughing memory
Seriously considering my first Leica lens at the moment .... a used but exc condition, later version Summicron 50mm in chrome. It will mean parting with the Nokton (and some cash ), losing a little speed, but realising a goal. Not sure that's sufficient justification - any thoughts?
My take on the images you've posted is that there's absolutely nothing wrong with them, and they're proof that it's the photographer, and not the equipment that matters. I can't really suggest a course of action, but I have no doubt you'll continue to take amazing images with either lens.
To be honest it's nothing more than Leica lust....I think. Difficult to describe really, but I guess the closest I can get is to say that I'd like to see for myself what all this Leica lens fuss is about
That's really not a good enough reason is it .........
No, it's a 5-shot bracket. I used the A mode to give me a reading (poor man's light meter), then went down two stops and up two stops by altering the shutter speed.
Shiro/Steve/Charles/Lloyd/Ton: Thank you, Gentlemen!
In the first one it's fun to see what I look at 1st (his face), 2nd (reflected women with light on her face), 3rd (reflected women trying on clothes (?), & back again. Then you start looking at detail. Grain and contrast super.
In the second one, you see the hand and the reflector (?), and then discover the huddled women. Wonderfully composed.
I was reading a book by William Albert Allard (Lloyd tuned me on to him, recently) last night. He said that the best photographs raise, and leave you with, a question (paraphrased). Both of these do.
There's great stunning images posted here the past couple days and there's simply no way that I could even hope to comment on each of them. Since my main job is landscape images that captivate me the most are sunsets, shadows and anything remotely related to landscape. Simply put, there have been some outstanding images posted here lately.
Best wishes to all
I'm not a good one to speak on Leica Lens lust. I agree with Lloyd's comments. Perhaps Ashwin, or Steve could address the lust...?
Thought I'd share a couple more images from the Jackson Hole area. These are samples of each lens in the bag (have I mentioned I need a larger bag?)
Thank you for your comment
Enjoying all the new stuff on the forum since I last checked in...Matt really wonderful Pan, Don, enjoying your new images from your trip to to Wyoming. I'm in Houston and the pickin's have been slim here but need to trip my shutter now and then or I get shutter "withdrawal"!! so...here is a fountain I stopped to shoot after walking my dog today...Saw this really wonderful rainbow from the water mist and light. Allen Parkway, just west of downtown. eleanor
Eleanor: very nice picture; I see that you got past your withdrawals.
Here's a few from the end of September, Iao Valley on Maui.
