    The funny part is the windmills (OK not your traditional ones) with the refinery in the background.

    Nice one Terry!
    Now how many 50mm lenses do you have to go with your 2 M8's? I think the minimum requirement is three

    I confess 50 to more than one 50 but at the moment it is only one and a half....the half is visiting the clinic in Allendale unless it went abroad to the spa in Solms.

    Should I start a new thread on MP B&W?
    ...or maybe a B&W thread on my new MP?
    ...or how about an MP thread on the new B&W?

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    I really like it a lot.
    Those shots were from the first roll of TMY I shot with it after its arrival.
    Developed in the Jobo tank I bought to replace my Nikor tanks that got shipped off to the recycle center less than a year ago.
    Now if the new M8 shutter sounds like this I want two.
    Just a quiet snick and no vibration that I can feel.
    Now I am thinking about maybe backing my M8 with the MP and also that now I REALLY need a 50 lux for the extra stop and a half over the 50 Summarit.

    Peace Rally 5th year anniversary of the war in Iraq. It's nothing like the anti-war riots that took place here in the 60s and 70s, but it's a start. M8, Noctilux.

    I think I used " an action from to NOT TO BE NAMED SUPPLIER OF ACTIONS for the web?

    Must have left the 'low sharpening' default on.
    However, it does show the DR of the M8. Was actually the CV 15 I think

    Victor

    PS, there is a larger lake beyond the land bridge; it was separated by a rock slide in historic times.

    It was the same trip I 'almost bumped into Guy" on the eastern side of the ATlantic, but a little farther east.

    BTW, here is a 100% crop of that cv 15 shot; not too great.

    The next two show why we buy leica lenses!
    same lake other way, into the sun, and 100% crop

    I see the difference!

    Victor

    PS; I did use levels in these to remove haze from both. However the real difference is in the resolution; both mid distance crops and the second I think was the 28mm. I believe both were set at infinity for the shots, so the 15 SHOULD have been a lot better close in. Light and iso the same I think . Also the 28mm was faster (1/350 vs 1/125) however, there is little motion blur as you can see from any straight edge. It is just better resolving from the Leica (and yes, I understand the FL makes a difference. but 100% is 100%; the leica just puts a better image on those pixels

    Beautiful shots Victor, the first one is stunning.

    - Mike: The second shot of the Civil War Road is quite compelling. I like the eerie mood and subtle qualities of the light and shadow. Very nice.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Are my cheeks still here? That's what the guy on the right seemed to be asking himself. We stopped into this dark bar in San Francisco for a beer at about 4 in the afternoon and these two were the only other customers. Apparently they'd just sealed an important deal that day and were on their 4th bottle of red. The guy on the left reminds me of John Candy with a bad dye job.

    Playing with different shots of red Ti leaf plant in front yard to make a big print for wall hanging. 75mm lux wide open, contrast boosted in PS to make it kinda painterly and give it pop, colors not touched.

    Maggie, it was right down in the center of town pretty much. Jack's? Something like that. Apparently been around for a hundred years or so. Two floors of tables and lots of local celebs and politicos pictured on the walls. We were tired and thirsty and weren't paying much attention.

    After a feverish brain cramp, I remembered the name. John's Grill, not far from Market. I'm guessing it's a tourist trap. They had the actual Maltese Falcon from the movie on display there. That's about as much as I know since we pounded the beer and headed for Bart.

    A few pics from the local zoo and a horse model competition/show. The zoo gave "easter eggs" to many of the animals. Mostly, it was food inside brightly colored paper bags. The hippo got melons. The pic of the wolves occured when possibly a siren got them howling. Although it is a great sound to hear, it sounds better in the wild than in a zoo. I'm sure the nearby deer appreciated it though.

    Some hopeful entrepreneur had set up his sunbeds in anticipation of the Easter rush.

    He should have consulted the weatherforecast first....

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Hi Jaap. I like both of the shots however if one had to stand on its own I like the first as it gives you a bit more "information" about the scene and what is going on.

    How did you process the first one. It looks like the colors are very desaturated but not grayscale as I think I see a hint of color in the top left sky and on the beach. (I like the effect)

    I admire you for always having your camera at the ready and taking lots of really interesting shots.

    LOL. Cats and dogs are a fun challenge to focus with an RF camera because they're always moving. I think Elliot Ewitt commented about photographing dogs that went something like this: I like dogs, I don't need a model release

    Thanks I see what you mean in the first shot, I see some sepia in the lower righthand corner too and I cannot explain it. The only thing I did differently from the second is that I ran Alien Skin over it and desaturated afterwards. The other one is as is. So I think I will start by recalibrating my monitor right now...

    Center City Plaza, Philadelphia, PA

    Inspired by the concept of History and the Passage of Time, a neo-classical bronze face streaming from the heavens collides with earth. Trailing from it is a comet tail filled with the remnants of its journey. These artifacts relate to the City of Philadelphia and ideas of the future. Combined, these elements invite the viewer to contemplate what we have been, what we are, and what we may become.

    These weren't my words, but my first contemplation was, gee, this would make an interest chandelier above a bed. Every morning, a contemplative awakening.

    I know what you mean about Pets being hard subjects, oh and not to mention kids too.

    Kids and pets make good manual-focus and framing practice. They make you anticipate their moves, and you adjust accordingly. They're a fun challenge
