Ed, Thank You!
Matt, Really Loving Your "Aint That America, For You & Me" Series! Very Therapeutic!
M9, 0.95, 9x ND,(Color Efex Pro- Glamour Glow Applied)
I'm really lucky to live here in northern California - this is the view out of my window the other morning - Redwoods and Live Oaks with a touch of fog:
M9 + 50mm lux
And this is the view on my commute to work - taken last night at sunset while driving home. This view is across the Santa Cruz Mountains looking over Monterey Bay in the distance:
M9 + 50mm lux
And one more from my Pigeon Point Lighthouse shots:
M9 + 50mm lux (what else ;-))
Thanks for looking.
Once again, I am ridiculously behind. I just way too busy with work right now. I'm trying to follow the thread, and what I've seen is as inspiring as ever. Thanks to you all for that.
Joe, Stunning Comps! So Beautiful!
Jason, Gorgeous Shot & So Adorable!!!
Was really just a test shot for a photoshoot idea I recently thought of, but I like how it came out (colors could use some tweaking).
Great photos everyone! These are from this past weekend in Kona:
Yamas, FANTASTIC images, processing, colors, etc...
Markmont, I like the image...Selfie?
Jason, great images of the new addition and the new family love!
Steve, more fantastic shots of your daughter and friend! I love the glow!
Joe, great shots. Can't wait to see what you can do with the Elmarit and it's reach...
Jim, lovely capture of the Burning man temple! Is that a permanent installation!?!
Matt, great seeing you tonight...same goes to you, Ed, Al, Dan, Peter, Kay, Tim, Aaron, Bill, et al...
Some shots from the weekend.
M9/35 Lux AA
Speaking of which...SLUG critique group # 1 at Al's place....
How did you protect your M9 at BM from the elements? I've "lost" several cameras there due to the dust and harsh conditions. The light at BM is fascinating, a wonderful image of the temple.
the M9 held up remarkabley well... when carrying, i had it zip locked in plastic bag (as well as lenses). did very few lens swaps.. and then was very careful of where and when i did them.
only ended up cleaning the sensor once.
first pass at some informal portraits.. still have some editing to do with them
(i had a media pass, and never shot anyone without first talking to them, and then asking permission to shoot)
Yamas, Superb IQ & Set!
Markmont, Nice Seeing You Mark!
Jason, What A Beautiful Family & Set! Your A Very Lucky Guy!
Ed, Love That Purple Glow! Great Shooting As Always!
Ash, I Wish I Could Bring My East Coast Possey Of Blugs( Well Me & Joe I Should Say) Out Your Way & Play Nice With You Guys! What A Talented Group! Great Shots Of "Our Gang"!
Jim, Tremendous Set! Love The Processing! Just Bookmarked Your Site. Totally Amazing Work!
Fantastic portraits, Jim. The last one really did it for me...
Agreed, great portraits and processing Jim.
Here is a fun one, handheld 3D IR. 50 Lux ASPH.
Go cross-eyed to see in 3D.
Leica M8 18 SE / 35 Summaron /Elinchrom Quadra / Rotalux Deep Octa 70 cm SoftBox
It goes without saying ... some amazing images in this thread .... Have not posted or commented in awhile been busy with life .... hope you all don't mind if I jump in : )
Mesmerizing portait .......
Daniel, nice IR conversions. I now have a headache from the 3D cross-eyed effect!
M9, 135 APO TelyT 3.4
Ok. Trying to catch... just a little, at least. I'm sure I'll miss someone, but if so, I assure you, it's merely inadvertent. Great work all around on this thread. Here are a few, and not necessarily in order, comments:
Mike: Stellar stuff with the 90 Elmarit. My favorite 90 (and I've owned 5).
Joe (RF_Licks): Great landscapes! Very impressive.
Ashwin: Glad you finally caught a break from work. Cool to see the inside of the locker room too. BTW, in that shot of all the name tags, which one is you.
Joe: Great shots all around. Quite the gorgeous view out your window. Love the "Free Empathy" shot. Nice moment. Nice stuff "up the coast" as well, especially that first one.
Robert: Fun shots of the kid with the bubbles. And spot on skin tones too. Nicely done. Great image of the chalk drawing as well.
Peter: Decisive moment there in "Girl talk". Great catch.
Brian S: Impressive results with the vintage glass. That 1938 lens especially!
Steve: Already mentioned how much I'm liking the portraits with the Nocti, but have to single out the "Norma Jean" shot. Great shot, stellar processing.
Matt: Loved your shots of the Palouse, and the latest Pikes Place Market shots as well, the shadows shot in particular. Great catch on the girl in the hat as well.
Paul: Welcome to the Digital M thread. Nice set. Like the bubble girl in particular.
David: Amazing work with the 21 SEM. Very intriguing lens. Love the rendering... very much like the 28 Cron, which is a huge plus in my book!
Jim: Amazing work from Burning Man. Dawn at Temple of Sorrows is great, but I have to say, the portraits are simple off the charts! That next to last one is simply haunting!
Daniel: The wedding series is great. Love your girlfriend's hair color. Also, that 3D image is wicked cool! Worked perfectly, thanks to my naturally-crossed eyes.
Jason: Beautiful child. Glad you reposted. And your wife appears to have recovered quickly. Again, huge congrats. BTW, are the dogs jealous?
Mark: Nice selfie. I actually very much like the color tones in that one.
Yamas: Great stuff from Kona (one of my favorite places in all Hawai'i). I've been out in that water by the pier multiple times. Glad we didn't start Ironman at the same time as the canoe races!
Ed: Very kewl shots. Love the color.
Ashwin: Quite the Rogues Gallery (or is that Rogue's gallery?) at the SLUG meeting. You Seattle guys never have any fun, do you?
Shiro: Amazing work, especially that first one. I love my Quadra, Deep Octa combo, and this is an example of why!
Steve: Wow! What a set! You are rockin' that 135 APO TelyT, my friend!!!
Lloyd, Thank You My Friend!
how'd you manage to catch Guy with such a peaceful look on his face? (and without a camera in hand
and thank you all for the feedback on the series.. Burning Man was an incredible experience!
That one was shot with an old pre-war screw mount 8.5cm 2.0 Zeiss Jena Sonnar. Front element has nasty cleaning marks, it flares whenever it decides to (have made a large lens hood to try to prevent this).. but renders beautifully
(the rest in that series were shot with a preasph 90mm cron)
