    I'm fascinated by this view of Crissy Field, the handful of people spread out at the end of land, and photograph it almost every week. Crissy Field, low tide, fog, 75mm cron

    Yes, interesting lines of the meandering creek leading to the leaping dog (the latter makes the photograph IMO).

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    Hi, Dave – I go out regularly with a hiking group but without a camera; and then I go back by myself, always on a cloudy day, if I've seen an interesting place to explore for photographs. These are from a 'parkscapes' project in/around Berkeley, CA.

    But amidst the CA drought we've had too few cloudy days! So this week I purchased (from another DPI member) a classic LTM Nikkor, for shooting on our Spring-in-February days. Monochrom + old Sonnar = extended highlight/shadow detail.

    Thx for noticing,

    Kirk

    Dave ,
    this is on the west side of Oahu ... the Hawaiian flag hidden in the trees amongst the debris marks the entrance to a houseless community ....

    The words painted on the concrete " E ola Ka Olelo Hawaii" , translates into
    "The Hawaiian language Shall Live"....... 1893 refers to the date the Hawaiian Kingdom was overthrown ,1896 the Hawaiian language was banned by the American backed republic of Hawaii ...


    Never a problem changing lenses at the beach though I tend to use the lens that is on the camera no sense in pushing my luck ..but will do it if I feel the need ... in fact I have never had a problem with any camera caused from use at the beach .... also when it comes to cleaning the sensor on the MM I have had great success with the Eyelead sensor gel stick . Easy to use and works ...

    ALoha ,

    I will soon be picking up back my MM from Leica, they already replaced the sensor, hoping it will serve well just like before. In the meantime, here are some previously unposted pics...

    Plain softbox, black card on the right, hold the highlights, squeeze the tones towards the middle.
    Here's another with a single umbrella and a bit more drama.

    Your lighting techniques on metallic surfaces continue to impress. Look forward
    to more.

    Mitch, more metal here.
    No lighting technique at all - just a single source box or an umbrella.
    With the highlight warning barely showing, the Monochrome seems to be able to handle moody exposures. I'm watching what goes on with the white cloth all the time.

    Really interesting, Steve. His wide-open eyes suggest he's just seen his life-story revealed in that tangle. Nice light too.
    (Not so sure about the magenta tone/color cast, though.)

    Thanks Kirk, it's Selenium tone, a traditional B&W archival toner.

    Re: Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

    I realize this is cheating, since the photo below is not from a Monochrom but of a Monochrom...

    It's been almost a year since I tried a Monochrom for the first time (and a Leica for that matter) at the Silo City workshop. Been thinking about it ever since. I have some M lenses for my a7r, so getting a used Monochrom made (some) sense for me in that I have two camera systems with one set of lenses! A fellow forum member had one with ~250 actuations; looks brand new. After a few days I'm having loads of fun with it. The apo summicron 50 asph seems a perfect match.




    Up to this point I've just been running around the house trying to learn the metering characteristics and focusing. Although I love the focusing, I am finding the same thing many others have; if there is a small amount of bright area in the frame it will tend to get blown.

    All I'm getting so far is the "put it down let's go for a walk" stare.
