    "Last one" from the Monument Valley. It took time to process it the way I really want. I'm pretty that this is with the 85/2 ZM. Ashwin, don't sell the lens, you will regret it! :-) (honestly, I like this lens better than the 90/2 AA)

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Not quite sure how I felt about the day, started off kind of strange, though ended off decently. Nothing great, nothing horrible... got a new pair of headphones though! Really bassy, not quite crisp enough though.

    I think part of the reason why I didn't have a great day was that I didn't take a photo that I absolutely loved today. To be honest, I haven't really taken one that I fell in love with for a while... since that photo of Ernesto. I miss being able to use a viewfinder, talking to my subjects, and feeling like I'm doing something more than just pushing a button. I miss knowing my subjects. It didn't matter if they lied to me, if they tricked me, or wronged me, at least they had a story. I feel like all I'm doing now is observing from the outside. such a technique really works for some, and many have mastered it, many produce great work with it, but it's not me!

    Despite my complaining, I photographed anyway (very Aeneas, right, Hillary?)... here's what I got from today!



    I saw this kid skipping happily down the street Had to catch it



    The lady was really fidgetty... looked really nervous. There was just something about her and this moment that I had to capture, even though it's mundane.



    This man kept talking really loudly. There were two other men of his age walking with him, so I thought he was talking with his friends. Though, once the men walked ahead and disappeared, he kept talking...





    I got a little bored of shooting from the hip, so I decided to try experimenting with long exposures! One was taken while going down an escalator, and another while walking through a mall It's kinda fun! I could definitely see a possible series of photos taken with long exposures... maybe just to capture the hustle and bustle of the city. My sensor is also kinda dirty.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Patrick, great shots, I agree, I cant just take shots on the street without knowing their backstory or even their names! Iprefer to have a connection to the subjects.

    I like your long exposures, BUT.............. it looks like you need to clean your sensor

    Rayyan, that cat shot is cool, and I dont even like cats!

    I am ridiculously behind on this thread. On the upside, as I go through them this morning I am simply blown away by the quality of the images here!

Not when i was looking for tones and shadows! heheh so I can safely say that I can get by with the older M8 instead of a Monochrom.......................................fo r now :P
    I love old trains. Great set (and really excellent monochrome), Robert.

My Grandpa had a can of Tsing Tao beer beside his urn. We offer them food (oranges and buns), burn incense, say prayers, and offer them paper money/clothes by burning them.

    My aunt took us around yesterday. She's the coolest aunt, she knows exactly what I like in Hong Kong. "Don't waste your time going to the new places and eating new food, you really want to be in the old places eating Hong Kong food." The funeral home was located in a rather old district, really cool. We ate at a restaurant that's been there for over 40 years, with most of their original wall tiles intact.

    On a side note, the Zeiss 28 is an amazing chunk of glass!
    Loving you shots from HK, Patrick. And I agree with Ashwin, your processing skills are improving and are quite excellent now.

    I'm seeing a purple flare spot to the right and what looks like mist in the middle and backgrounds? Not sure if this is mist, or the result of clarity adjustments? My goodness this is a tough case for correct exposure! Love the foreground

    in other news.. i've contracted a horrible case of GAS which doesn't appear to be going away xD so i recently acquired a fed4 with an industar 61 50/2.8, and as of today a rolleicord III so i experimented with the industar 61 on my RD-1 yesterday.
    Wow. Hillary, your images just get better and better. Congrats on the new glass!

    Thanks for the inspiration,

    Congrats on the M9, Alejandro. And on the nice set. (Nice glow to these as well.)

    The year is 1325. The young man would dictate his journey in a travel memoir, which would be more famously and erroneously known as the ' Rihla ' or the ' Journey'.

    This man would have travelled 120,000 kms..on foot, on mules, camels and horses. He would have travelled to the furthest corners of China.
    His journey would be unmatched till the advent of the steam engine.

    The young man came from Tangiers or Tanja, as I know it. He would be known in the west as Ibn Batutta. The traveller.

    p.s Those who have visited Dubai would have surely visited the Ibn Batutta Mall. The largest shopping arcade in the world. Named in honor of the traveller from Morocco.
    Beautiful shot, Rayyan. BTW, your earlier mention of Ibn Batutta cost me a number of hours reading about him in the Internet. My gain... thank you.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Drove up a local canyon early last Saturday so Mimi could meet some friends for a training run. The were heading up in to the mountains, starting at a trailhead right by the road. I had a couple of hours to kill, so I took a walk on a different trail, which follows an old pipeline, which took water to a gristmill a century ago. Fortunately for me, and my still-recovering knee, the trail is fairly level, while the canyon falls away quickly.

    All the the M8, 28 Cron:

    Thanks Mike (and Lloyd and others who commented..)

    The purple is from the Sun flare. Since this is from a 3-shot handheld HDR, one shot flares badly. I sort of like it as this almost looks like a digital painting. May be I will add a "Mothgership" or something :-)

    As for the unsettling aspect, I think I know what you mean ;-P

    Thanks, Richard. Given the current market, I am holding off. I was torn about selling it in the first place, given its unique rendering and lovely OOF. I think the ZM 85 is the perfect portrait lens, but you are demonstrating what a wonderful lens it is in compressing landscapes, including the breadth of its tonal rendition. I'm very impressed.

    Keep up the great work, Richard! And Kudos on all of the awards!

    All the the M8, 28 Cron:

    I tried the M for about a year, I couldn't get used to the rangefinder. I posted a few of my favorite images on the blog.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    rayyan, lovely image of the town! I like the blue door way with the cat too.

    Richard, great shot with the masks, you deserved to win! the Monument valley shot is really cool, it looks like it took some work to get it to where you wanted it. I really like my Zm 85/2 as well!

    Matt, your images bring back fond memories of India. I am hoping to go back one of these days. Easily one of my favourite countries to travel in. Love the colours!

    David, the shadows on the wall is super, I did not know that this was possible with a partial eclipse, thank you for sharing!

    Patrick do you speak cantonese? I have founf the people of Honk Kong very approachable for photo's, and I only speak english...

    Charles, I commented on that other forum again

    Lloyd, number three is really speaking to me, super image!

    Robert nice family shots!

    Thank you, Charles. Another terrific set. I love the textures in that first one, but as always, top notch top to bottom.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    WAAAAAHHHHHHH. The images that have been posted while I was asleep are so amazing.

    Charles, you're working wonders with that Nocti... I wish I could get myself one. You've also got the skill and eye to make that lens sing... great work!

    Lloyd, amazing shots from the trail, the first and third are my favourite... that third one has a great sense of depth

    Rob, is that friend the one that doesn't like Leica? His son's got the coolest chinese robes :P I used to ave a se when I was a kid! Great moments you've captured in those shots I'm sure he'd love prints!

    Andrew, that HDR (i think) from the construction (infront of the IFC by the Ferry Harbour, am I right?) i my favourite Really nice colours!

    Hi Patrick, no HDR, I used a polarizer and a grad on the M9! Took a bit of work but I managed to get everything under control. The 18mm is a super lens for that too BTW

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    ohmygoodness you guys have done it again xD one day i'll sit down and comment on every photo that i've missed.. but for now i'll leave it as beautiful work from everyone (and yes patrick, very aeneas. i feel like i've been doing that a lot lately too...)

    from what i remember from so many pages...
    Shirokuro: thanks it really does suck to be in a rut.. i tried taking my film camera(olympus xa) and shot with it for a couple days hopefully i'll finish a roll soon and get them developed. shooting with film helped me a lot with getting out of my rut unfortunately only out of my film rut and not so much my digital m rut..
    Mike: great sense of humour with the entertainer photo
    Richard: congrats! really cool photo too
    Charles: beautiful portraits with the 50/1 nocti. i love it when subjects look straight at the camera

    I took this photo as a sidenote to Patrick's dimsum photo from hong kong - in vancouver in a dimsum place.. very different from old style dimsum :P no more carts rolling by shouting what they had, no people rushing carts to get the good food.. nope. we were given a sheet of paper with the menu on it, and we just had to fill out how many of what we wanted and it was brought to our table. dignified, quiet, and completely the other end of the spectrum from dimsum in hong kong. and god forbid - they even had english on their menu sheet o__o

    Watch that knee pal!!. Beautiful lighting, different shades. Love it.

    Another winner set. More difficult to choose. The first for the gorgeous textures and colors; the other for its atmosphere.

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Always great to see such varied images here - never boring

    Lloyd, impressive canyon shots, and love the balance between highlight and shadow. I saw a new 28 cron at a dealer's on Saturday but too rich for my blood I'm afraid....

    Charles, more great work - last one is lovely.

    Robert, nice set especially the 3 generations image.

    Andrew another fine series. Wow, you're good Love this one:

    re: Fun w/Digital M Images

    Andrew, I do speak cantonese! To be honest, I'm thinking it's the places I go to and my native look that makes it difficult for me to get photos. To a Hong Kong native, what does it matter that a foreigner has their photo? Unless the guy's an international criminal, it wouldn't affect them. Though, a chinese male in Hong Kong taking photos would be a little different. There's a certain paranoia here, as explained by my relatives, people think you're a photo journalist looking to exploit things. Especially since my family likes to hang out in Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po, where shadier things tend to happen. I have no trouble photographing people in the more developed and modern areas, especially places with a lot of foriegners. Maybe I'll try speaking to them in english next time I want to take a photo!

    Ashwin, Seattle looks beautiful Though, I've always felt as if the Fuji's files look... almost TOO perfect. There's a certain... "vanilla-ness" to them, when compared to the M9 and especially the M8! That's not to say your work with the fuji is any less great than with the M9!

    Hillary, when we work in Hong Kong someday, I'll take you to a legit Dim Sum place, if they're still around. There's only about 2 well known (safe) ones left... such a shame as their food was delicious. There's something about eating in such a hectic place that makes the food taste so much better! :P
