#1 My favorite. The gray tones and the white highlights make the grass and thistle extremely delicate and ephemeral.
#2. Very textural; you have to look for the path and then move down it; photos like this always remind me of W. Eugene Smith's "A Walk to Paradise Garden" (even without the kids).
#3. Nicely balanced composition, arcing left to right along the weir, water flowing down and to the right, dark background with a spot of detail brings the eye back into the photo countering the movement to the right
Great shots of the Art showing gang, I like the cyclist shot too
re; Sparklers thanks Matt , that shot was hard to take, the cameras metering gets really thrown off by sparklers
From today, M8/35 cron:
'White Balance Problem'
Thanks to you all for the kind words. I had a smashing time last night hanging out with my friends, photo buddies, and the Glazers camera gang. All in all, about 100 people came through and enjoyed the show. Big thanks to my parents for coming from Cleveland to see it and be part of it. Big thanks as well to Glazers and Brad Weeks of Leica for helping to sponsor the event and trusting Al Tanabe and I to throw a good opening. I equipped my parents with a D-Lux 4, and myself with the M9 and 50 lux asph...here are a few takes from the show...It was great to see Matt D, Ed Tan, Kay Yang, and a few other GetDPI folks over there for the opening. It was equally exciting to meet new friends in the real world, who have come from near and far, including Satya and Dave B.... Obviously, great to share the images alongside those of Al Tanabe, another honored GetDPI member. Here are a few:
Parents Ready to capture the moment
Brad Weeks, NW Leica Rep and orchestrator of the party. Thanks, Brad!

More great stuff, David. That first one above is amazing!!
David, amazing...Wow, those last 2, truly magic that you are making with that lens!
Thanks so much, Lloyd & Steve. By having Matt and other GetDPI folks here, and by having a chance to spend time photographing and getting to know all of you three, has added to the experience of photography! You guys rock, and you were there with me, in my mind at least!
Thanks Lloyd, Steve, and Ashwin. Much appreciated.
Here's a similar shot.
M9, 50 Lux asph
M9, 90 Cron asph
M9-P and VC Nokton 35/1.2 wide open
Amazing shot - Kristian!
Mike: The humors back! Nicely seen.
David: Great angle on the first and capture/composition/pp on the second. Very cool second set.
Ashwin: Terrific set of photos! Great fun at your opening.
David: The two from the church are brilliant. The first, especially, so.
David: She's giving you a "you're not from here, are you?" look Nice composition.
David: I like the second one, also. Thanks for the info. Hard not to take her picture.
Steve: Taking that first photo could get you in trouble. Great pp on both.
Kristian: Intense color, look, light, and composition.
Another one from the other night, and, one for Robert.
1. M9; 50mm f/.95; 1/125s @ f/.95; ISO 160
2. M9; 50mm f/.95; 1/4000s @ f/.95; ISO 1000
Ashwin - congrats on what seems like a great opening! Must be a blast hosting an event like that
Robert - love the shots of the cars. EXCELLENT composition and the pp is great as well
Mohammed - your shot a couple of pages back on the beach is excellent. Very crisp image
Matt - great shots with the Nocti. I particularly like the Mustang. The pp really adds to that shot
David - I can't get enough of your work with the 24 Lux. Great shots, especially the woman on the bench!
baudolino - the image of the sunflower is awesome. Excellent rendering with that lens...its on my list
Kristian - great shot of Superman
Steve: Love the shot of the kid in the T-shirt. I want that shirt!
Kristian: Great shot of Superman. Wonderful light. Good thing you used the M9-P, so he couldn't tell what you were shooting with, eh?
Matt: That shot of the Mustang is stellar. The emblem on the grill looks positively 3D.
Matt: thanks for the stang!
