    I've been waiting for your counter view. Again, just sharing my perspective, knowing this all comes down to aesthetic preference and how we each express ourselves. Certainly not dissing your or Maggie's choices. I'm all for aura.

    , ha ha.....for my part its a period where its rolling with the hard contrasts, even thought its too hard sometimes, but the soft tones in the GR seems to be able to be very subtle too, look at Maggi´s #134
    thorkil
    (and maybe I´ll come to that later on. Specially when I was younger the soft soft tones could feel like dreaming paintings)

    Yes, 134 is about my taste and nicely illustrates the GR's capabilities. Seems a shame to toss all those luscious grays unless, of course, a subject really warrants it. But I'm in the upscale burbs and don't encounter much grit. And even if I did I'd probably be inclined to try to beautify it. I appreciate Moriyama's Shinjuku work, but have no desire to go there or experience that. The older I get the more positive I'd like to be.

    Your image is somewhat perplexing.

    The far background to the left seem to be a photo gallery. The near background on the right looks like photo frames for sale.

    What is Marie viewing. Could it be Daniel's portfolio.

    The human nature and mind is devided in several layers. And even thought our romantic part are longing for the outmost beauty f.eks. in the beautiful landscape Pictures other parts of our mind is meanwhile getting thirsty after perhaps the opposite, no Picture will fullfil all parts of our mind at the same time...but we try to fill the gaps..

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Some images, to my eye, look better with the more graphic high contrast, where others really demand a more subtle and nuanced tonal range. I call 'em as I see 'em, with each photo.

    The photo with Daniel was shot at Marie's gallery/frame shop, so you get the gallery part in one corner and the frame wall in the other. We were all looking at one of Daniel's sketchbooks, which were amazing.

    Reminds me of an old airline joke:

    Glad to hear that, thought the photos were from work or a visit to a friend.

    That's the C-Biogon 35/2.8, which is an incredibly wonderful lens! One of the best I've ever used, easily.

    I'm currently leaning towards the Nokton, if only because of the focus shift on the Sonnar. But they're both great lenses, each with its own charm.

    OK, you go soft and I'll go edgy. A good experiment.
