    Thanks Dave, Mike.

    Great stuff, Pete. Love the geometry and intricacy of the Istanbul room shot!

    Woody, that bridge shot is mindbending and very well done, especially how you centered the shadows and highlights from the light play. Fantastic

    Central Park just north of the reservoir - it connects the jogging path to the tennis courts. Right about here:



    MM + 18mm super elmar. Very aggressive use of perspective controls. The high sky makes this look like it was shot on an old orthochromatic film.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    So I've been experimenting with HDR. I went back to a spot on Second Avenue and reshot a very high contrast scene that I had done earlier, this time with 3 exposures bracketed 2 stops, and processed with HDR pro in Photoshop. Very nice software - the best HDR that I've worked with yet. So here it is, taken with the MM and 18mm super elmar. No blown highlights and nicely transparent shadows:

    Here's a non-HDR shot from a slightly different angle. I prefer the non-HDR, frankly.

    In technical terms of what I simply see from these two screen shots, I prefer the HDR version and I am usually not a big fan of HDR. It seems to have tamed the exposure extremes well without looking artifical.

    Agree with Dave. Most times HDR looks artificial. But here the HDR shot has much more punch, especially in the highlights. But I'm asking myself if it wouldn't be possible to achieve the results with the single shot as well.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    I'm going to break a rule here. I'm posting two Monochrom "autumn in New England" shots taken yesterday, followed by three taken with the M9 (yes the colors finally got to me!).

    First the Monochroms both with the 28mm elmarit:

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Now for the part the breaks the rules - three with the M9. The first with the 35mm FLE; the second with the DR summicron three frames stitched; the third with the DR summicron.

    Let me know what you think.

    Aren't rules made to be broken?

    Of course to represent and display the splended New England colors of Autumn, one must succumb to use of a color camera or film. Yet on the other hand for most of us that have experienced the beautiful array of hues and vividness of the leaves this time of year, our brains sort of fill in the missing pieces when captured in B&W, and in this case, what the scene might look like if it "WAS" shot in color. Sometimes this can be a most effective and a quite different take on a subject that were so used to seeing usually being shot in color, since our own interpretaion and imagination is added when we view these kinds of B&W images. Often times the B&W e can be stronger, it all depends. This of course is my own personal interpretation.
