    "Dark side of the Moon" with accordion and acoustic guitar

    Lesson learned today: The ISO setting overrides the max. ISO setting which only works in Auto ISO (I did read the manual). These were all M9, 50mm f/2, and in ISO 1250. Their version of this Pink Floyd song was incredible and, as you can see, spirited. Took a lot of photos. Thanks for looking. Cheers.

    Ahh, yes, that is Seattle, Mike.

    Indeed, Max ISO is only applicable when in AUTO ISO mode. That said, the M9 does very well at ISO 1250. Out of your series, I like the first and third shots the best.

    I agree! An excellent series of shots with an evolving (and involving) story.

    Matt, when you put together your Seattle photo book, you'll have some fine color shots to intersperse with your even-more extraordinary b&w shots.

    A peak inside one of arcade machines at Circus Circus. Used the 50 lux at ISO 1000.

    I wonder how you chose between the 24 & 21.

    It was close.

    I really like deep-focus wide-angle shots, but was concerned the 21 might be a bit too extreme for everyday use. I still have my 18mm Super-Elmar, so I figured I could use that for more extreme wide-angle shots. While the 18mm is considerably slower, I like that f/4 helps increase the DOF compared with f/1.4 (assuming there's enough light to use f/4).

    The other deciding factor was size. The 21 is a bit larger and heavier than the 24 (69.5mm diameter versus 61.0mm, 66mm length versus 58.5mm, and 580 grams versus 500 grams). It's not a big difference, but did help tip the scales.

    In the end, it was a best guess. I couldn't afford both and wanted to go for one or the other before the January 1 price increase.

    Thanks, f 1,0. And thanks for overlooking my misspelling of "peek" as "peak." Too late to change it in the original post.

    I think the M8 could have made the same shot, only there would have been more noise (or less attractive noise) at ISO 1000. I lightened up the image in Lightroom, so in theory, it's somewhat more than ISO 1000. There's grain there, but it seems to work for the image rather than against it.

    I was trying to recreate this image I shot last February at Circus Circus with a Sigma DP1 at f/8, 1/13 second, and ISO 100 (**warning** non-Leica image coming up):

    HI David
    I haven't said how much I've liked your Circus shots - so much goodness and interest. Perhaps it's because I'm jealous of your 24 'lux!

    Matt - love the Dark side of the Moon shots - especially the 4th and last shots, wonderful. It seems to me that 1250 with the M9 really doesn't give much disadvantage at all.

    all the best

    Just this guy you know

    Thanks, Jono. That means a lot, as I very much enjoy your photos and respect your opinion. Wish I had used the 24 lux more while I was there, but was too tired from CES most evenings (went to bed earlier than I would care to admit).

    Here's a 24 lux shot that shows it can distort perspective, when given an opportunity. The 21 lux would have distorted even more, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    So why did you have the camera re-calibrated? Was there an issue with the M9? Or did you just want it to be the best that I could be?

    I really like deep-focus wide-angle shots also.

    Now that you have the M9 and still have the 18, it will be interesting to see if you still like it as much as you did in the M8.

    Cheers

    Hi Jeff, I think I share that reason: they seem quite desperate for lunch or is it they can't believe what's being served ?
    Keep up the good work with your 75'lux !

    Thanks! My M9 was back focusing with lenses longer than 75. I sent it in and it was adjusted and now is perfect and sharper than it ever was with ANY lens. Thanks again.

    Thanks everybody for the kind comments.
    .
    Osman: They were playing "Dark side of the Moon".

    Jono: At ISO 1250, they needed a lot of work. I'm not going to make it a habit.

    DavidE: More great stuff from Vegas. Your shots of that ride are cool. I like the way the people are secondary, almost consumed by the ride.

    Steven: Very nice. And, i thought ISO 1250 was over the top. I'm not sure if i could even recognize "backfocusing". Any reference material on-line?

    Lloyd: Elegant photograph. Post some more.

    I appreciated that, Matt. I have to confess, however, that over the four days, I took this and one other image (that one just of some work our friends are doing in their vacation home. They asked me to shoot that one), so I have nothing else to show for the trip taken with the M8. We did get in almost 5 hours of trail running, and about the same amount of time on the bikes, so it was a good weekend! I took a few shots with my iPhone. Maybe I can post a few of them?

    Actually, that sound like a great time. I think the IPhone belong's in the "Small Senor Camera" forum.

    HI Matt - this is really simple.

    Backfocusing is when you want to get the pimple on the tip of someone's nose in focus, and you're picture focuses on their ears
    FrontFocusing is when you want to get the hairs in their ears in focus . . . and you get the pimple on the tip of their nose instead.

    Steve: Thanks for the compliment.

    Lloyd: I like the color. It's so simple, it's almost monochromatic. The gradation of OOf on the angled sheet metal wall (?) makes a perfect background for the grass. I think it's stronger in color.

    Jono: Thanks for the explanation. I won't ask my wife to be the model (not with that description).

    Jono: Thanks. Nice photo of the "shopping trip". The cat's a pleasant "discovery" after the eye first going to her face. Cheers.

    Some B&W versions of photos from a recent trip to Rwanda.

    Nice shots bisht -- what were you doing in Rwanda?

    Here are some I took this afternoon -- I just needed to get out of town...not much light still, I have been stuck in the city, so I tried to go for a drive. I did not really have a destination in mind, and I wound up at the geothermal fields east of the city. I only took a couple of shots because it was cold, dark, grey and windy. In the color images, Lightroom had 15,000-50,000K as being the white point...it is amazing how blue the light is here at this time of year.
    The road I took...only one other set of tracks:

    Stuart,

    Thank you for your comment! I've heard that Iceland is a particularly beautiful place, but at this time of year I'm happy to be in the relatively mild climate of Washington State, USA.

    I work as a Cardiologist, and was visiting Rwanda to help arrange for some open-heart surgeries planned for this February in Kigali. Rheumatic heart disease is a serious problem in much of the world, and there are a large number of young people dying of heart failure for the lack of a few dollars-worth of antibiotics. Sorry if this is too much information...I've been radicalized by my recent experience.

    Best regards,
    Tim

    Thanks for the information Tim -- I was curious as to what brought you there, because it is not the sort of place where tourists would wind up. I figured you might be involved with an NGO there. It's nice to hear that you are doing what you can to help.

    As for Iceland -- yes, it is very beautiful here, even at this time of year. When there is light....but even when there isn't, but that makes it harder to capture with a camera. It's not THAT cold though...it was right around freezing where I took the photos, and it was rather warm yesterday -- 9 degrees C, which is about 50F. We even had a brief thunder, lighting and hail storm today. The first that I can remember here. I'm rambling now though...

    Kurt, here is a white balanced shot similar to the one I just posted:



    That's at 25,000K -9 magenta.
    Here is another shot where I chose the "daylight" setting in lightroom...that sets it to 5500k and +10 magenta. With this, it looks like a cyanotype. When the light is this blue, even your brain can't fully compensate, so the landscape looks very blue-gray.
