    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    I converted to srgb before I saved. Why does mine display with so much more cyan than Jack's or Maggie's??? Any ideas?

    Just a thought Cindy

    Are you sure you "converted" and not "assigned" the srgb profile? You can get really weird colors if you assign the profile.

    OK, here's my latest version, with more contrast and light, possibly too much:

    Woody,
    No, I converted. Maybe I should not have done that to Maggie's file. I have seen this before. All I did to Maggies file was: New, paste in Maggie's file, curves (use eyedropper to set black and white points--used threshold mask to find them.) Converted to srb and saved.????

    Maggie,
    I like your latest version.

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    Maggie: IMO your base file above is about the best iteration of all... I'd perhaps take it and layer on a curve: kick up brightness, and don't be afraid to let the brightest clouds go full white; keep the darker clouds about where they are, perhaps a bit more contrast in them. Then I'd experiment with masking off the sky and brightening and increasing contrast on the buildings/foreground --- and only keep it if it still looked natural.

    Our neighbourhood had what was called a Progressive Party. We started at one house for the appetizers, went on to another house for the main course and finished at yet another home for the deserts. These were all shot with the Noctilux at f1.2.











    At the final home, we had help with cleaning up any crumbs of desert that may have been dropped on the floor

    I especially like the third one - were you using the new revised AWB with the new firmware?

    Messing about in the kitchen again!
    Both taken with the 75 'cron - a favorite for me because of it's close focusing.

    The first shot at f2 in the evening.




    the second one was taken in the morning - the new AWB didn't manage this one (way too blue),so this was set on 'daylight'.

    Yes, the new AWB, but I fine tuned a few. The third one is pretty close to what AWB gave me.

    Jono:

    Here was one from the Party. This is AWB and AE at 1250 iso.



    I think AWB is not as consistent at the higher ISO or it may just be the lighting at higher ISO is more difficult.

    Blending in with the surrounding elements ... a decidedly different view of the Santiago Calatrava-designed Milwaukee Art Museum. M8 and Noctilux.

    Focus distance was set around 2 feet or 0.6 meter. Camera was propped on a wine glass for support. Bob would've been in relative focus had he not moved so much! But it's not all about sharpness don-cha-no

    Here a sample I took with my new 2/75 wide open and new FW 1.2 in M8.

    The cat is an American Curl ....

    I think the colors come very good now!

    And I love the 2/75

    I was reading on another thread that you shoot exclusively with CV lenses. If this image doesn't convince that it is the shooter not the equipment that makes the images then we are all hopeless.

    I stand in awe of this image and the work you have done to take the out of camera image to this level.

    Super congratulations

    Woody, thank you for absolutely making my day with your kind words!!

    I've really come to love my Voightländer lenses, especially the 35mm Ultron. (but really, all of them a sweet)

    ptomsu, that is a gorgeous cat and I love how you've managed to catch the light in her eyes, so that they seem to glow from within. (and that ear hair is adorable!)

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    This is only my second post here, and I have been enjoying the work that others are doing, and the generosity of the other posters in not only sharing and commenting, but also helping others realize their vision. After all the noiseless, vivid work--some great stuff on this site, I thought some gritty, "grainy" black and white would be in order...M8 files:

    The first is from iso 1250, Voigtlander 75mm @ f2.5, grain added with the new DxO program [[email protected] gain emulation, if I recall].

    The second is the 28mm Summicron, a lens which I have grown to love. About f2.8, again iso 1250, with Delta 400 grain emulation. This is one of a series that have all been shot at a particular table at a local bistro over the past several months, all titled "Table 7." Some interesting goings on, there....

    I hope the resolution is not too low, but the original files uprez nicely, and have held up to 20" wide with Piezotone ink, with good result.

    Maybe a silly idea - but really this thread is way too long to follow - maybe start a new one called fun time with M8 #2 or better still how about start a new one each month..just a thought...

    Thumbs up More and more fun with M8 images

    In the night the oil rig amongst the petrochemical industry looked like a magic carpet. The storm pulled the smoke from the stacks straigt, making this image.
    I had my tripod with me, but the wind was to strong for a stable shot, so I pressed the M8 against my windscreen, and used AE @ -3 EV, ISO 160, Summicron 35 asph.
