    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Gentlemen,

    Cheers for the feedback. I sent this image to the local Leica rep and he thought it was a bit over-sharpened on his monitor. He has one of those new 24" glossy iMacs. I'm running a Cinema Display (matte surface) and it looks spot on to me. It would probably look a bit soft on a CRT. I'm curious as to how other posters are gauging the appropriate sharpness given the potential disparity in viewing monitors.

    He's right, it is a bit over-sharpened for web viewed on my Cinema display -- for example, the jaggies are prominent on the chrome arms of the chair and her bracelet.

    HOWEVER! I often do that on purpose with my best images when posting them online to protect them from copy-paste theft. On our workshops, I've used a student's posted 1200 pixel web jpeg, uprezzed it using the methods we teach and print it out at 16x24. And it looks darn good! No, not as good as using the original file, but so good it makes the above point. FWIW, over-sharpening early wreaks havoc on up-scaling protocols, so it's probably the best insurance against that kind of unauthorized use; so for me it is not an issue as I know it could be re-processed for print with more appropriate sharpening...

    Re the processing, lighting is perfect and I like what you've done with the skin tone, saturation and contrast, as well as the fact you've desaturated the background at the same time. That combo accentuates the "harshness" of the life she's probably lived...

    Cheers,
    Jack

    Great feedback and good strategy Jack. I'll leave the sharpening right where it is.

    I noticed that. A "panda" edition of some sort (noticed the black rewind knob) but I'm not sure about the lens.

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    Great shot! Back in the day photogs didn't have the luxury of 10fps so the great sport pics took real skill and timing and yes luck. As a boxing fan, two photos come to mind: The Marciano-Walcott punch and the Ali shot standing over Liston.

    I was at the Wisconsin/Michigan game today and used the M8 because I was assigned to shoot non-action stuff. I had time to mess around, so thought I'd see if I could get any usable action. I know this would never compete with the Canon 400s and 600s, but in a pinch I suppose it could find its way into print. This was shot with the 90 Elmarit.

    Yeah I think I figured it out. I am playing with a 21mm elmarit I got and might sell the 21mm biogon. What's interesting is the 28mm frame lines seem to be way off on the M8, way too tight.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    I like the point of view of the first one better.

    You need to use a 28mm viewfinder with a 21mm lens on the M8 (or you might find the whole viewfinder window works for you). I sent you a pm about this.

    Re: Fun time / M8 images

    here's an original "Agent 99 & Maxwell Smartish" photo take with the benifit of full overcast light with a graffitti backlane as a prop. And a photoshop interpretation.

    "missed it by, that much"

    Taken with my magic (4th dimension/cinemascope/sin-erama) cv50 f/1.5. I love that lens (pry it out of my dead fingers) on the M8.

    Streetdancers I run into yesterday night.
    Dancing, resting and a girl keeping a close eye on what I was doing :-)

    Oops, the guy lighting a cigarette comes from a Canon-5D; everything else M8.

    New York of course, Union Square.
