    TR - I like the mood the toning imparts to the image. Both shots form the series work very well. It appears to have been a beautiful day for a walk but perhaps you were freezing out there.

    Thanks CMB. Yep, very cold, just above zero F. But by this time of year, I've grown used to it. Which is not to say that I won't be glad when it goes away!

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

    As for the images from this shoot. I'm sorry to have this be the last of them... stunning work. Really enjoyed them.

    Wonderful images TR. I feel cold just looking at them.

    These are some of the nicest snow photographs I have ever seen. Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing.

    Where do we post Leica R images? I thought there was a thread, but I couldn't find it.

    Still a gorgeous shot. Rippling with detail. What lens is this?

    I love this thread - T.R., your winter shots are wonderful, and hard-earned given the temperatures!

    I got the 50 cron two years ago because it was affordable (comparatively), and I have come to love using this lens. Here is a shot of a friend at an art gallery this past weekend...

    Thanks pthompson! Everyone's comments made the walk worthwhile.

    That's a lovely portrait with the 50 in the gallery. Very nice feeling of depth. And the rendering of the oof figure in the background is a tasty bonus. Nice!

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    With my Leica M8, I am often looking for black and white images, as was the case here. I have the camera set so that the review image I see is black and white, but the camera is also set to create a color raw (DNG) file.

    This was taken about 20 minutes after sunset, and the black and white I was going for is shown below. The color result above was pure Serendipity. I always say, it's better to be lucky than good!

    M8 w/CV 15mm/f4.5 SuperWide; straight out of the camera.

    Some shots from Sunday.
    All with the 28 'cron and Auto-ISO. Which works really well, wish I used it sooner.
    They all have some noise (ISO 1250) but I like it in these shots.

    I was invited to a superbowl party. The host was prepared with 3D goggles for everyone to watch the 3D commercial. What is particularly funny is that there were a total of 6 judges (at the highest levels of both federal and state judiciary) at this party in addition to several command level state police officers and a number of successful attorneys and everyone put on those silly goggles. I couldn't resist the picture. The room was quite dim so that the picture really pushed the camera into a noisy zone.

    Hmm... Nice shot... and with all those judges, lawyers and law enforcement types, it's easy to see why it's a "noisy zone"!

    I really like the noise here. Very film-like. Nice. I also really like the toning you've used. Good work, my friend.

    Yea and the Cardinals should have won. Maybe I should send these guys my appeal on the referee's calls. Also the non calls too.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Is it just me or does the M8 suddenly feel like "last year's model". Musn't let this thread fade away, even if it means struggling for something to post. Some old snow in January.

    About as fun as it gets with an M8:

    Felix Mars Peterson, born 1/29/09, six pounds even, 19 inches tall.

    M8, 28 cron (cropped slightly).

    Thanks all! Funny thing is, my M8 had been back for warranty work and I decided I should have a second one around so I bought Terry's black one she was selling on here. It arrived about an hour before my wife went into labor!

    Anyway, Felix is happy and thriving and very used to the sound of camera clicks by now.

    oh, that is wonderful!!!

    i think you did good to get the black. the chrome might have hurt his tiny eyes. when your other one comes back, i think it will be his favourite new bright and shiny toy. and the leather strap make excellent teething fodder (as i've found out from various puppies).

    who needs a rattle from Tiffany?

    congrats!

    BIG CONGRATULATIONS and Felix Mars is a wonderful name
    all the best to the three of you.

    Tim
    I don't think the magic of the M8 is waning at all - if you go to dpreview (not generally recommended) there are a bunch of photographers who have just bought them - I'm certainly using mine a lot.

    Ed
    Great Shots - I love the wall.

    Terry
    Has your m8.2 come yet . . . .and will you have two of 'em!

    This one isn't so new - it was the last day smoking was allowed in pubs in the UK, but it came to my attention again yesterday, and I'm still proud of it!
