    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Guy,
    That doesn't work for me (but thanks for your suggestion.) The yellow is too saturated and the lily petals just are smoother than your take. I do think that it improved the stamens a lot, so maybe I should have done some selective work on those.

    Yea looking back on it , I may have overcooked it some. I liked the soft light just looked a touch flat though.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    I agree that it looks a little flat, but when I tried to bring up the contrast, it looked too harsh. I started over and just did a local contrast adjustment, detail sharpening and then a little s-curve and left it at that. I think I should have added more contrast on the stamens. The flower in real life is kind of subtle. It is good to get others ideas. I never mind someone trying something on my photos.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Very nice shot Cindy. Contrast can be tricky sometimes. It doesn't take much to go just past the "limit" and it can feel too hot.

    I took this shot in the fog this morning and my own tendency is to add punch with curves even though the actual scene was pretty flat even to the naked eye. But it's fun to make alternates!

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    First one, about five minutes before the storm hit today in NYC. Zeiss 25mm.





    Then everyone took cover where they could. Zeiss 25mm again.




    Waiting for the rain to subside. Both of these with the 85mm Summarex.







    Two more from the Summarex.

    Tim - the quality of the light in the fog image is really nice!

    Mike - ty, some got drenched and some enjoyed playing in the water

    Here are a few more from Yesterday. First one with the Zeiss 25mm and the rest with the 85mm Summarex.

    Tim,
    I like the subject a lot. I don't like the chain link fence in the background. I think it detracts from the subject. I would like to focus more on the old paint, rust and form of the bike.

    Some really great images posted here lately. That 85mm Summarex certainly impresses; the fifties look in the digital age, and more.

    Here's a rather modest image that I finally got inspired to post, but also taken with an older design, the 4/135 Elmar.
    Quiet morning light.

    Fabulous composition! The curved shoreline lines up so well with the reflections in the water. You have a wonderful eye for these as i have noted so many times in the past.

    Congratulations

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    This isn't art per se, but over the weekend we decided to fell an old Apple tree that had been damaged in a storm. I hated to do it, but it had become unbalanced and presented a danger. I thought the dark heartwood was especially pretty and saved a long section of the trunk for a friend who does woodworking.

    My excuse was that I needed something to show off the wonderful light and having taken the picture it seemed churlish to let the props go to waste. Somehow, the other half was not entirely convinced by my reasoning.

    My wife is learning to play the Tiple, which is a traditional puerto Rican instrument... like a small guitar.

    I shot this with a 50mm pre-asph, M8, processed with truegrain and toned.

    Tollie,
    I really like the shot. Wold love to see it without the toning as I feel like I'm picking up some magenta in the hand and shirt and I'm not sure that it adds to it.

    For those sweltering in the summer heat, here's a shot from last November to cool you down. At this time of the year frost is creeping in, lakes are starting to freeze over and the light is, well, just wonderful.
    M8, 90 mm Apo-Summicron.

    M8 in the studio with 90/4 Macro

    The little 90 is all round excellent and better then most RF lenses at close range.

    I'm just back from vacation, mostly in the northeastern corner of Oregon. Here are two fun images. I call the second one "Triple Moon."

    Both M8, the first with a CV 90/3.5, the second with a 50 Summicron.

So much for jest but the combination of the Chrome M8 and the Luigi case is just wonderful IMHO. Wish I had kept them as my other M8 (the one i was convinced obviated the need for two) has crashed and i am now awaiting the replacement of the shutter which went up in smoke so to speak.
