    Hi Matt,

    It's Newcastle Street in Perth, WA but pretty dirty none the less. Thanks for your compliments

    Graham, that is an OUTSTANDING capture. Almost 3D. How did you process, if you don't mind my asking? I am in awe!

    Every time I think I might sell my M8 and buy another film M, or something else altogether, I take a few new shots with it (or see great ones like this) and am reminded that it's a really great camera! The detail and color in this is great!

    A couple from a recent car buff get-together in Lafayette, CO. These were some that reminded me of the special nature of the M8 (and the Zeiss 25mm Biogon).

    I ran this one through Capture One v5 and then applied a very slight amount of Topaz Adjust - Small Details filter in Photoshop. It looks horrible initially but you drop the effect down by 50% or more and then reduce the opacity of the layer. This is the first time I've tried it and I quite like it. That's it. Nothing else.

    Err, oh yes, I also straightened it - that's why the image links broke on a couple of the notes here. I posted and then realized it was slightly drunk so replaced it with a more vertical version.

    The 35 'lux is a complete pebble. I don't know why people bother with it.

    On a more serious note, to DAG for calibrating my M9 and 'luxes. I've said it before but I'll repeat it again - getting my lenses and camera calibrated together was one of the best camera system investments I've ever made.

    BTW: Thank you everyone for the very kind comments on the Istanbul images. You folks have raised the bar pretty high so I'm having to be VERY selective before picking photos I'm not ashamed to post amongst so many excellent shots here.

    Mike: These are super. Brings back memories. You must be too young
    to remember, Sandra Lee, Bobby Darin etc.

    I loved the Thunderbirds. The car and the animated series.

    rayyan: Your photography has many dimensions. These "details" illustrate that. Composition/PP are great. I generally only crop "original" and 1:1 (don't ask mw why, I don't know); but, your crops here work very well. I'm intrigued by the texture in the 3rd photo. Could i ask what you used for pp?

    Matt: Thanks. I use the blending modes, channels quite a lot. For the third
    one in particular.. ( CS3 is what I have ). Blending to soft; curves to bring
    up the contrast. ( I wanted the highlights on one side of the arm and the
    brass in the sculpture ( ? ) to have contrast.

    resize for screen. Nik pro sharpner. save for web, and post.

    Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be further help.

    Regards.

    Indeed - Atmeydani Cd. I assume that she's a well known tourist attraction then? I survived the carpet salesman's pitch. After climbing up the hill from the river I was glad to stop and take some shots and she was very friendly.

    Rayyan: A very interesting technique, and one I will have to try. These are (as always) impressive images. I love that second one especially. As for the third, I have no idea what that is, can you tell us about that? Thanks.

    Lloyd: Thanks. Try different blending between 2 layers, adjusting the opacity.
    Try mixing and matching. Use channels to brush away unwanted parts, as in a mask. For me excellent tool.

    The photo is of the base of St. John of Nepumak, on Charles Bridge in Praha. Canonized in 1729 as the Patron saint of discrtion, floods and slanders. Born John Wolfin in Nepumak around 1387. Murdered on orders of the Bohemian king and thrown in the river. Some say cut in 7 pieces.

    People saw 7 stars in the skies on his death. The 7 stars are also depicted
    on the statue around his head.

    Visitors touch his statue ( or what they can touch ) for good luck and wishes
    to come true.

    Thanks to WiKi; errors are mine

    Thanks for the info, Rayyan. Very interesting about the Saint.

    I'm intrigued by your technique. I have used blending modes some, but although I was aware that some people used them, I don't really understand how to use channels to make adjustments. I saw part of a brief tutorial once, but missed the key parts.

    Lloyd: Just use channels as a place you can hide or show. Make a normal selection. save it. In your channels layer, you now have a bw channel of your selction. do what you want with it.

    Another way: You saw the photo I posted of Leysin looking into the France and Mont. Blanc. It was shot in dng. it was bland.

    1.made a copy of the bg.
    2. duplicated the bg
    3. changed blending to multiply
    4. duplicated the bg copy ( now you have a very dark pic. 2 multiply modes)
    5. changed the blending to soft
    6. used opacity control to lessen/increase multiply or soft mode layers.
    7. use a gradient layer like a soft grad filter.

    posted it after resizing and sharpening. I used Nik pro sharpner. But
    luminosity mode would do same.
    or selest all and sharpen only the selection in bw.

    5- 10 seconds to do. Honestly.

    Thanks, Matt. The M8 is responsible for capturing the subtle creamy colors of some of the cars. It blows me away sometimes. I was also fortunate to have a lightly overcast day, as well.

    Heh. I'm only a little too young to remember them. I certainly remember the Thunderbirds TV show. I actually have a model kit of Thunderbird 2. Have never assembled it. Bought it on impulse on eBay a couple of years ago.

    (actually I assume it's just square hamburgers and thin-sliced pork, but am interested to see if I'm right)

    Oops, I think you're off by one (the luscious barbecue pix were actually from 'Braeside'), but you're definitely right about the drooling!

    Well, in this case it was whatever we could find at the local shop, as a BBQ is a rare thing here, just happens when we get a heatwave. ie. more than two consecutive days with temperature in the mid 20C range.

    All I could find (apart from the instant barbecue fuel) was "square sausages" and Bacon. It was delicious though.

    Reminds me of a tale my father told, when we went on holiday to the North West of Scotland around 1960. We had a "Scottish Heatwave" while we were caravanning at Achmelvich Bay. Dad and his friend decided to build a BBQ, they found drift wood and some old bricks and a metal grid. All they needed was some food to BBQ, so they drove to the nearest village (Lochinver). They went to the butcher's shop and asked the shop assistant for some "barbeque steak". The assistant looked puzzled, so he called through to the owner of the shop for advice. "What was it you were after? " he enquired. "Some steak for the barbecue" my father replied. - " A bar- b - que, yes uh-huh I see" said the owner. This was clearly something never heard of in the remote highland village, and my father had to explain how they would be cooking this meat outside - much to the amusement of the Butcher.

    David: Thanks. Lovely country. You were just a little southwest of where I was. Small
    world.

    They say the water appears like a map of Scotland?

    Thanks for sharing.
