Matt, #2 & #3 are excellent! The Nocti a new toy?
Not the best shots but someone asked what I used to take my bird photos
a Pentax KX with a 1970ish super takumar 200/4 , taken with a M8 and ELmarit 135/2.8 wide open shooting into the sunset
and a M8u with the Elmarit 135/2.8 taken with......a pentax KX with a super taky 200/4 at f5.6 , I think this was taken in JOG mode, hence the oversaturated greens
Ryan, Thank you for the kind words, glad you liked it !! cheers!
Frank, Lovely street set, beautiful stories !!
Matt, The Pike place market set, is beautiful, excellent composing with the Nocti, very inspiring, well done my friend !!
Just returned from an expedition to the High Arctic Svalbard..in the vicinity of 80 degrees north latitude in the Arctic Ocean...550 miles from the North Pole. Here are some M9 images with various M asph lenses, from that trip. Eleanor
Eleanor, these are fantastic!
Wow, Eleanor. Those are stunning.
Ryan: Yes, a new tool (toy).
Thanks Dude and DN....I like the way the M lenses rendered the water...gave it a smooth kind of liquid "oily" look even tho it was clear, cold and certainly had no oil! eleanor
Hi Matt and thanks. What does one do when you are on a trip where most are looking for and photographing polar bears and have dslr's with very long IS lenses.., with auto focus....my longest lens was the M 75 mm asph. I decided to shoot the water abstractions for one thing..they were beautiful. I head to Colorado tomorrow so hopefully I will get some decent river shots again...eleanor
[QUOTE=m_driscoll;328322]Eleanor: Welcome back! These are awesome! I esp. like that your set isn't just a "travelogue". #1, #3, and #5 punctuate, complement, enhance, and complete #2 and #4. A great visual "story". BTW,each, and every one's an excellent photo.
Eleanor, Superb shots!!! Love the shape and form to all of the shot
Tallai, Queensland Australia.
Shiro: The pool monster shot is scary-good!
Eleanor, three words: Wow, wow, wow!
Matt: Nice fiddlin' around with the Noct. You really used the slim DOF to advantage, and got a very "pushed Tri-X" look in the B&Ws.
Robert: Not your typical BIF setup!
Eleanor: It allowed you to hone your art...and, you didn't end up with 12,000 rapid fire polar bear photos to edit. My experience shooting grizzlies three years ago: still editing the 12,000, now down to 8,000.
Peter: Thanks. It's going to take a while to get a feel for it, and see how it fit's into my shooting 'style'. My initial infatuation with photographing the smallest DOF possible will, hopefully, evolve into something more mature.
Pike Place Market. Thanks for looking.

Matt the last one is awesome for 2 reasons
1: the bokeh and shallow DoF are cool
2: I like how you put the lock and chain in their too . very subliminal message about jewelry :P
Well, I'm off to buy a new dog : a Great Dane ; always had dogs through my life and now I've set my mind on Great Danes ; that said, been reading about the breed for the last weeks and today went to the Great Dane championship here in Portugal, to know some breeders and watch the dogs in real. A treat !
Here are a few pictures , M9 + Noctilux :
Hope you enjoy !
Charles and Peter thanks for your kind words on my arctic water shots. and yes Matt, I was amazed at the camera/long lens motor drives that sounded like machine guns. I kept thinking .." do they know the editing work they are making for themselved"!!!!
Matt I especially like your third image down on your last series....this is one I wish I'd taken!! well seen and love the color and out of focus areas.
. . . . . as usual, I can never keep up! Will catch up tomorrow, there are a ton of fabulous photographs posted in (what seems like) the blink of an eye!
M9 with APO Summicron-M 75mm F2 ASPH
Speaking of viewing Matt D's pics in person.... M9 and 21 lux asph...
As you can see, these images are getting some serious attention. Congrats to Matt! All images taken at Glazers Camera in Seattle, my fav place for all things Leica!
Shiro, Fantastic photograph! The image captures my attention, love the expression on the women, the lines, the blurred reflections in the water with the clarity in fence, clouds, and palm trees, the photograph is just plain intriguing! Just Love It . . . . . .
Speaking of Glazers, I just put up my Exhibit, alongside Al Tanabe, another forum member extraordinaire. IT came out well, I think. The show's up until August 18th, with a GRAND OPENING on JULY 9th, @ 6 pm at Glazers Rentals Exhibit Hall (517 Dexter Ave, Seattle) for any of you who are local or who can make it...
Here are some tastes of the gallery...

And while I am at it, a couple more from a recent stroll with the rigid cron...
My sassy, photogenic friend...
As the sun sets over the sound...the ferries continue on into the dusk...
And a couple oldies...revisited...
Ashwin, nice captures of the Leica Crew!
. . . . . was the 21 lux asph part of the recent used inventory availability at the store?
I do look forward to seeing the exhibit in July of both Al's and your work at Glazers! I would have loved to been at the Grand Opening but I will be out of town visiting my new Grand Daughter.
. . . . . btw, if there is a prize for the fastest GetDPI forum thread poster, then you would have it, by time I get one post ready, you already have many! WOW!
Also, thanks for you kind words, by the way, they are always appreciated.
Okay, last few of the day, from tonight's wedding, 75 'cron and 35 lux asph FLE
Perhaps it is late at night (at least for me) but the second photo reminded me of 'Little Italy' . . . . . stone staircase with statues . . . . . I am going to have to keep my eyes open when driving around the neighborhood to capture the whole picture.
The second photo looks like it was one heck of a dance, with the need for a spotter to insure the child did not get injured in case a body went flying!
. . . . . and the photo on the screen gives the appearance that the bride & groom started with the honeymoon first and wedding second . . . . .
Nicely done . . . . .
Yes the 21 lux was part of the recent used inventory. I got word from Dante that a Leica "horde" had arrived via a seller from Bellevue, and once I saw the 21 lux on the list, I jumped to get it, boy am I happy. Getting some DOF at 21 is amazing.
No worries about missing the grand opening. New granddaughters are far more important. Feel free to stop by anytime, and the offer remains open for you, I, Matt, and others to go photo strolling. There are quite a few of us GetDPI members hanging around (Ed Tan, Brad Husick, Kay Yang, you, myself, Matt, Al Tanabe, just to name a few)....
As for any prizes, LOL...I'll take 'em...
I'll have to come back to comment; but, here's Ashwin reaching for another lens!
M9; 50mm f/.95 w/8x ND; 1/125s @ f/.95; ISO 160
LOL...image doesn't show....I guess I am not guilty...
Seriously, though, the next lens I desire doesn't exist yet...the 21 super-elmar...that sounds like fun....
