Fun with the Leica M Monochrom

Nice image! I've always thought this lens created an Orthochromatic look. It's the contrast I guess. Not bad considering Nikon designed it in for Leica in 1945 and started producing them the next year.
Thanks! I really enjoy shooting the old Nikkor LTMs on the Monochrom. I have them in all focal lengths between 2.8cm and 13.5cm. Only missing the exotics/ultra rare (f/1.1 and f/1.5s)
My favorites are the 5cm/2 and 8.5cm/2 (this week :) )

I got out yesterday for the first time in awhile to take some pics with my Monochrom 246 and Zeiss 50mm Planar f2. Still trying to fine the processing I like for some images, but getting more comfortable with it.

For the last couple of months life has been getting in the way of photography... Opportunities have been few and far between but did enjoy a photo-stroll on Wednesday afternoon in Wimborne, Dorset.
