What a nice capture of a sincere smile! Beautiful.
Most of these are DMR images. 9 of them are H3d-50 images.
Thanks Osman for the kinds words
Time to get a few recent ones in All taken with the VE 105-280, the Eagle with the Apo-extender 1.4x.
Fall in New Jersey is spectacular, in my town in particular with lots of trees and art & craft-style houses built around 1912. Only 30 miles west from Manhatten.
R9/DMR, 35-lux, processed in C1 4.8.3 (which gives me the right colors!).

That is exactly right;
Particularly since I went back to C1 for developing the DMR images - color just seems to come out more natural and skin tones more pleasing.

I need to get my 105-280mm out more often! Great shots. That lens really performs well on the longer end.
Jaap - I missed the shots from your last Africa journey. Fantastic captures!
Those Africa shots are crazy. I never never never ever considered a 105-280mm Vario-Elmar-R f/4.2 but those are fantastic!
The lions are a winner for internet but the three and car is great composition, especially as you probably "saw" that image from the car and went over to do it.
Thank you Thorsten . You are right about the car shot. Actually I had to walk quite a bit as I used the long lens. It made me a bit nervous, as there were Lions about (but not too close).
And thanks Rob and Terry
The Three Brothers, featured in the BBC series "Big Cat Diary" VE 105-280, 1.4x apo DMR
What the inhabitants of this Masai village have been waiting for for two years. It came just in time to save their cows. A shot along the road, using -guess - the VE 105-280.
All winners Jaap but the lone tree and the car is superb! Very inspiring.
I keep pushing that DMR All using the VE 105-280
Great shots, Jaap. I do find the boke a bit funky in the first shot, and slightly in the second as well. Those clouds look painterly, in the worst way
Hot air, Carsten. Maybe I should apply some Gaussian blur?
Ah, interesting. No, I guess is should stay that way then. Very interesting. Do you have a 105-280 shot with similar relative distances in cold air?
How uncharitable, Rob . I wouldn't dare...
I would like to be posting more DMR photos but last week the dreaded weak ISO thumb-wheel fell off. I have one of the early models which had a weaker version installed. I sent it to Leica NJ with an estimated four week turn-around time. I hope they are kind and speed up the repair.
While waiting for my DMR to come back from service.....I found this image from last year taken at the Granby zoo in Quebec, Canada. Two young black rhinos playing. Taken with R9/DMR and 180 2.8 APO lens.
I've been looking for a photo like this for a few years: a Wild Turkey with some fall color in the background. Finally got one this morning.

Here's another photo from last weekend:

Love that one, Doug
My own modest contribution today:
Beautiful! What is tied to the leaf on the right?
Holding fat and seeds that attracted the Robin
Bait, eh? What a good idea!

I'm sorry, I thought it was to induce the bird to pose for a photo.
Well, these little things don't pose they jump around all the time. You opened a can of worms there - baiting for an image is considered unethical in wildlife photography circles, as is any form of postprocessing beyond the basics.
R9/DMR + 180mm/2.8
Shot a bit of hockey in the back yard today. We live on a lake and I and a few neighbors try to keep a large sheet of ice clear for the kids and not so young kids to play on.
Two images from our town in Morris County/NJ, 40km west from Manhatten.
Beautiful lakes, frozen landscape.
R9/DMR, 15mm/f2.8; the camera rocks under these conditions and with C1 in post...

Seeing all these great images......I just can't understand what Leica was thinking when they dropped the R-series.
Dear Fellow DMR Users,
I was strolling around Taichung, Taiwan just before lunchtime and felt an impulsive need to use my DMR!
Taken with a Summilux 80mm at f1.4...
Thanks and best regards

Wow, just wow... when are Kodak coming back to m4/3rds?
