    I like your flower shot very much too. You appear to be having quite a winter already!
    Thanks Ed! We're just emerging from a blizzard that raged all last night and left behind about 18 inches of snow. Beautiful when you get past the work it creates.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Seattle got a bloomin' blizzard this weekend. And wind. Which created some beautiful sights, appreciated from indoors(!) Photo taken at 12:45am Sunday morning.

    9 inches of snow at my house atop two inches we had from earlier last week. I know that doesn't sound like much to people from snowier climates. But we rarely get this much snow, and only the freeway and very major arterials get plowed. The other major streets get sand, and residential areas get laissez-faire. The city is semi-shut down, with the notable exception of my employer. I made it to work today, but it was scary.

    Photo taken with M8, DR Summicron, ISO 320, 1/15 at f/2.8.

    Peter, how did you get the DR Cron to work on the M8? Mine hits somewhere on the plastic cowl inside.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Carsten: I sent my DR Summicron to DAG (Don Goldberg in Wisconsin). He ground down the close-focus cam of the DR, which is what prevents it from mounting on the M8. So my DR is now effectively a Rigid Summicron, but a little heavier.

    At first I resisted doing this, as it seems a shame to deface such a beautifully-made thing as the DR. But the DR is one of my favorite lenses. I almost never use the close-focus range. And a lens you can use is better than one sitting on the shelf. No regrets now that I've done it.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Hmm, I will skip that change. I still use it on my M6, and love the close-focusing ability. I thought perhaps that you had modified the plastic cowl in the M8, which is what have beem thinking of doing. I don't know how much room there is behind to do this though. I don't think it is hitting by a lot, just an edge somewhere.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Gah, gin, are there any scotch drinkers here? I am wondering where to go after Highland Park 18 dispatched of my previous love for Oban 14, and Lagavulin 16 has been slipping slightly down my list of favorites, not for any particular reason, other than I am beginning to appreciate smoother scotches with more subtle notes.

    cmb, thanks for the links! I am off to peruse...

    You bet, but since I am usually surrounded by wine and beer types, I wait for expense account travel to indulge. Prefer the Islay malts, the smokier the better. Nothing sophisticated, I admit.

    Oh well Bob, you know me.LOL Actually Oban is really a sipping scotch......consumed slowly while savoring all of the rich flavors. Same as Hendricks actually.

    Nice to have such wonderful choices.

    We had a spectacular hoar frost here in Ft Collins Colorado on the day before Christmas. I missed the peak but got a few shots which worked pretty good. It was very cold and so crisp you could almost feel the words freezing as they came from your lips

    Anyway, enjoy

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    thanks all. I agree with your comments.

    I wish that I had been able to take these images about three hours earlier. I had a doctors appointment at the hospital at 8:30 A.M. so it was about 9:45 until I could get back to it.

    Trust me that at 9:00 the hoar frost was so spectacular that you could not believe it. Makes me wish I had the G1 in the car with a couple of M lenses and John's adapters. Wow.......that would be special

    We will all figure this out over the next few months. Terrific options!

    Hope everybody has had a nice Christmas.
    This morning I took a early winterwalk through some nearby woods.
    It was a bit cold about 30 F, but the sun was shining and I had hot coffee with me.

    I agree that the black and white evokes a mood of desolation and thus has much more power. The other is pretty much a snapshot just trying to get the hoar frost to show. Pretty much a failure.

    I wish you could see the black and white printed. It has way more impact than the jpeg here on the web.

    Thanks for your comments

    Thought I should do my part to get this to 1000. This was taken in November near Mt Hood, OR, before the snows. 28mm on M8, then on to make a platinum print.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Neil, I would be happy to answer any question you may have. A good place to start would be to find the Dick Arentz book on Platinum Printing, 2nd edition where he discusses the NA2 method.

    2 from last weekend with the wate.
    Now since I have used MF for some time the M8 has become my "small, flexible" camera and it holds up pretty well.
    Cheers, Tom

    I found that the Ziatype process was the easiest for me to learn. It's a printing out process, so there's no development of the print.. the only chemistry involved is in the coating of the paper (there's a clearing stage.. but that can be often done with hypo clearing agent and a water soak)

    This process has been able to get some of the highest d-max prints for platinum (1.6 - 1.8 on bergger cot 320 paper). The color ranges from dead neutral to the traditional warm brown
