Ashwin: Great stuff. You are rockin' da house lately.
Mike: As always, your eye for great moments impresses.
Ashwin needs to be *busy* more often, hes taking more now than during the summer :P
Great geometry and architecture shots, may i ask what lens ? I know you listed them by a group but I think the bluish ones were all with the Zeiss?
I like the dance troupe one too, I kept thinking, I hope no doors open!
Some more from beautiful Prince Edward island , really looking forward to going back in the fall to get the leaves all golden/red/yellow!
Very nice Robert.

Introducing Elise Katherine Muelver
My sister, the proud aunt
Big Plus 1 from me. Congrats all around, Jason. Love the light in that second shot. Wow.
CONGRATS BIG DADDY!!!!!!! Beautiful Girl!!!
Jeff, love the color,contrast & interesting sculpture!
Apologies everyone for my late reply but thankfully "Irene" passed through our town with minimal damage. Hope everyone else is safe.
Also, thanks for the earlier comments to my Acadia pics, much appreciated: Matt, Steve, Ed, Joe, Mike, Robert, David, Ash and everyone else!
Going back the past few pages,
Matt, love those wonderful compositions from your Palouse and wheat fields set. Really excellent work there!
Mountainjoe, congrats on your 50Lux! The portrait on your first post with this lens is really nice!
MikeWoods, congrats on your 90Cron but you have since returned it? That first shot with the reflection water reflection is excellent!
Ash, lots of excellent shots from you. Good catch on that monk with the SLR! Also love the Moire Machine shot, excellent composition and colors. The dance troupe shot is another excellent one!
Steve, hmm .. that pic of me a few pages back, shouldn't you be shooting the subject rather than me? and congrats and (envy) on your new monster glass!! Love those B&W shots. Lets go out shooting soon (I am going to drool over that 0.95)
Ed, love that last shadow shot on the earlier 35FLE set! Really like the vibrant colors of your recent shots.
DavidE, love that first building shot at High Line Park and the cat poster with the 24Lux. Your B&W processing is excellent as always.
Daniel, nice casual street series from Perth. Also, your landscape pics never fail to amaze me, really superb work!
Robert, very nice flare test with the 50Cron!
Again, my apologies if I missed some of your post and comments.
A few more from Acadia NP last week.

Went back to catch the sunrise next morning. 90 Summarit
Jason, HUGE congrats. I seem to remember a bit of a scare a few months back, and it's great to see such a new healthy addition to the family. Super happy for ya, bud!

Glad Irene wasn't too hard on you guys.
I, often, hit the wrong button and lose everything I wrote before it's posted. It's a pain trying to remember all of the brilliant and witty comments, I had written down.
RF : Love those Acadia pics , Id have those 2 mounted , then go back in a month or 2 when the leaves change to fall colours and take another pair! ( then you could do a winter pair too!) great work!
Thanks Steve, Lloyd and Joe - thank you gents.
Robert, really like that first one from Prince Edward island.
Jeff, really nice compositions on the sculpture.
Jason, many congrats!!!
Joe, beautiful light in that last one.
Matt, nice series :thumb up: The B&Ws do it for me and, like Hermann, the first is my preference.
So, the replacement for the returned 90 'cron arrived today.....a near mint, very late shiny, chrome 90 Elmarit-M (I nearly ran out of adjectives then). It's a thing of beauty
Just thought of two more adjectives....'bloody' and 'sharp'!
Nothing artistic here, and only the last one is wide open, but Steve posted some cemetery shots with his new Noct so....
And a couple more:
Mike, Thats one sharp piece of glass! I knew this would have a happy ending! Awesome set!
Here's some more recent shots.
M9+CV 1.4/35 Nokton
M9+Zeiss C Sonnar 1.5/50
Wozza, lovely captures with the CV 35...you are tempting me to get this for the GXR as a 50 mm equiv, as it appears to be a nice character lens, and compact! But I must resist...
Speaking of the GXR, the 50 sonnar awaits that mount, but until then, it's on my M9 a lot more than I expected...LOVE the rendering....
Wozz & Ash, Im Considering The Sonnar As My Next Lens. Love The Cat & "Sarahs Key" Images!
RE: Sonnar , I love the rendering But I'm also Vintage McGee !
last shots from PEI
the hunters, in synch!
The last seconds of sunset by the river
snowy mountains in sunny australia.... Thredbo...
cv 35mm f1.2.. shooting into the sun... (manually setting exposure to get the mood effects)
cv 12mm f5.6
Thank you Steve, Dan, Ash.
Wozza, great images - enjoyed them all.
Ash and Robert, great stuff as usual, but I really don't need another lens lol.
Wanted to share some more from the 90 Elmarit-M which I took for a proper spin today. I have to say I'm absolutely delighted with this lens. Sharp, lovely OOF rendering and handles really nicely.
Today's theme is hats All wide open on the M8.
And this is what happens if you don't wear one:
I like the 1st Hat!
