That first image though my eye goes right here. The rest of the frame doesn't work for me, too confusing. Crop for your story, not for a particular "look" or effect is my advice.
Chuck, thank you for kind words and comments!
Lloyd, Ashwin, Charles, Chuck: thank you for the portrait compliments and (Chuck) suggestions.
Charles: Great capture (love the reflecting details in the sunglasses). And what a beautiful lens this is.
Thank you Ton!
Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
I wouldn't put my money on this "bank", as we label a couch in Dutch...
Finally went and got myself a M9 and I'm so glad I did, just a brilliant camera with some awesome qualities to it.
Finally got to spend some proper time with it so thought I'd post a few up since I hadn't done it before yet spent so long looking at all the great shots here.
All done with a 35mm Zeiss Biogon.
Outside my window. Lux 35 ASPH. Really a fantastic lens though I wish it focussed closer.
Thanks Lloyd, no it's the first ASPH.
Love that first one, Woody - nice way of seeing.
One from Maui yesterday morning; 28mm 2.0:
Few from Las Vegas last week; 28mm 2.0:

Aria Cakes (Jean Phillippe):
The Columbia River at Vantage, three different ways. Cropped on the bottom to remove some foreground and give it a more "pano" feel. Thanks for any comments and looking. Cheers, Matt

I've been absent from this forum for over a fortnight. My father had a serious brain condition and was hospitalized for 17 days, three of which were spent in intensive care and one particular nightmarish night in deep coma. Thankfully, The Old Blue Eyes is home now, convalescing among his loved ones, and his famous heart-winning smile is back on his lips.
Although I was unable to respond to your wonderful posts and discussions, I was by no means away from them; during the darkest times, I found solace by tiptoeing into this haven. It is impossible for me to name those of you who posted those magnificent shots, I loved each and everyone of them.
I want to thank you all for... well just being what you are. I shall now post a single shot. I know this does not qualify here; it was not taken by a Leica M camera, and it has serious technical flaws, but it shows my dad with his neurologist just before he left for home.
Best regards from Istanbul,
Osman: Great news. Cherish every minute.
Charles: beautiful portrait. I prefer the one in b/w.
Osman... Those are priceless smiles
Fantastic news Osman - have a very special weekend!
All the best, Osman ...
Thanks for the comments, Lloyd, Ashwin, Chuck and Guy. I apologize for not posting more comments on other photos ... but I want everyone to know that this is one of the first places I go in the morning after I log on, for inspiration and community. I really like to just look at everyone's photos. So keep on posting everyone!

Matt:Really drawn to the colour one absolutely fantastic, I think it's the slightly muted colour give it a real mood.
Lloyd and CharlesK : Thanks for the comments
MPK2010,Lloyd,ashwinrao1 - Thank you for your comments - We appreciate it
Autumn leaves, both M8/CV75mm f2.5
I'd like to reshoot this next one again, and maybe reverse the focus so that it's on the tree...but I suspect the leaves have fallen now.
