    Thanks, it was quite cold and after dawn.
    The M8 to me seems not have the best accurancy of colors but often pleasing colors which reflect the overall impression to look like what I have seen in reality.

    Now since I have used MF for some time the M8 has become my "small, flexible" camera and it holds up pretty well.

    It is pretty cold, here in the Netherlands.
    But a great time to go iceskating.

    I used LR2.2 for B&W, which gives me beter results than Aperture.

    I love the way the M8 handles all sorts of color and exposure situations. Here are a couple of snapshots of poinsettias in the afternoon sunlight that would give my Canons fits. Minimal post work...

    Hi Tim,

    Nice punchy black and white images. I really like the look your processing is giving these shots. The three donkeys for example make a lovely image in my opinion.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    I know Christmas is over... but have a few shot I would like to share.

    Camera = M8
    Lens = 50mm Lux Pre- Asph
    Shot @ f1.4 in jpeg
    Resized in PS, post
    No pre processing

    I enjoy the 50mm Lux pre Asph. A very different look & fell from the 50 Lux Asph. The focus is more accurate than the newer Asph version. In fact all my older lens has better focus than my newer ones... it must be me

    Enjoy.
    Robert.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    make that two of us Jack. On the Leica/Porsche trip with Guy a couple of years ago I shot about 20% of my shots with it. I think the signature of this lens is second to none. Only other 50 I use is my Konica Hexanon 50 1.2 and the reasons for that are obvious I think. I never take the Leica 50 Cron out of the bag and the 50 collapsible Elmar, while a neat profile, just doesn't product images I love. Just my thoughts

    A bit of pond hockey with the 50mm Summicron and M8. Actually, it was on a lake in my back yard.

    Thanks, when I saw the nice light, I went into the house to get my M8. I had planned a 50mm, 90mm and WATE combo, but when I swiched over to the 90mm the game was over. They had been playing for two or three hours by then.

    Thank you Hans - Clive is a wonderful, funny and clever guy.

    the little boy in the first one is just priceless . . .

    Sunny morning - I'm just off to Holland on a business trip, but the sunshine was too much to miss:




    in pretty light like this - even packing kit to go away can be good.

    Jono, you are truly the gadget man! I have only brought a DSLR on a business trip once, and took like 30 photos. Mostly, it is the P&S.

    A little Summilux fun. The first one is a bit misfocused (we need closer focus distance ) But still like the light and colours.

    I like this lens! I'm thinking about adding a 28mm Summicron or a 35mm Summicron. That's even more fun

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    I recently purchased a VC 35/2.5 Color Skopar "C" to take as part of a small, lighter travel kit. Here are some test shots comparing that lens with the 35 Summilux ASPH. I apologize that the crops are not all the same. Did this quickly, and shot handheld. Post processing identical for each sample.

    For my part, I was pleasantly surprised. Not bad at all for a $230 lens, and I love the small size.

    Here's the Color Skopar @ f2.5 (wide open):


    Here's the Summilux at f2.5:


    And here's the Summilux wide open:

    Natural light. They're actually standing in our bathroom. The large catchlight is from the window to their right, and there was fill on their left from the mirror on the wall.

    You're very kind. But in truth, the lens kinda makes things happen. I'm just sort of tripod (or maybe bipod is a better term.)

    Congrats on the new member of your family LLoyd!

    One last one from the previous shoot. I'd kind of given up on it but tried another crop and a little toning.
