    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Ed,
    It feels cold over there! I'm enjoying a Calif winter!
    My two favorites are the building #2 (with the asymetric roof) and there is something about Hangar 26. I think I like the very structured vertical wood planks with the organic branches of the tree in front.

    I love this shot in color. I think this is a case where color really shines.

    Hi Tim,

    Thank you very much!

    Terry,

    Again thanks! It is quite cold here at the moment.

    So what is a Calif winter, around about a European summer ???

    Thanks, that is interesting. I did punch those last few up a bit more. Something for me to bear in mind.

    I'm the same, and often shoot with the M8 set for B/W jpg and color DNG. I like the review image in B/W. Wonderful to have the choice. That said, I think I prefer the color here. Very nice.

    HI Cam


    How about this one then - this was intended for colour . . . but actually I think the black and white probably works better:


    This was take with the WATE, the other one with the summicron 75
    I'm with you here. I think the B/W is great.

    Ed,

    Thank you. I really enjoy this lens, despite the fact that it's certainly not a lightweight. Very wonderful way of drawing. I've had four different 35mm lenses for the Leica, and have kept this one when others came and went. I love the 35/1.4 Lux ASPH, and have the 35 Summicron version IV (love the size and bokeh, and the...), but even though I've thought a few times of selling the VC Nokton, each time I shoot with it I realize there's something special about it that I'm not ready to give up.

    Every Saturday morning I have breakfast with a group of friends at a classic 1950s style diner. This was shot with my M8 and 28mm f/2.8 Elmarit, existing light filtered through a wall of glass bricks behind my left shoulder. Processed with Nik Silver Efex Pro. Any comments are welcome.

    Nice isolation of your main subject. The b/w conversion is particularly good.

    MEB,

    Welcome, what a nice portrait!

    Lloyd,

    The bokeh both in front of and behind the focus point is amazing. It sends your eyes flying all over the place.

    Tim,

    I second what Lloyd says. If you are doing this when blocked, well that cannot be bad!

    Is the 75 Summilux a new lens to you?

    Hans,

    Thank you very much indeed!

    Thanks for the kind words.

    These are shot with the 28 cron and 50 lux (pre-asph) on my M8, B&W conversions done in LR2.

    In LR2, I go to the greyscale mode and start with "auto" which gives me a good starting point. Then I use the color filter "target adjustment tool" to selectively modify the lumination of certain colors from the original RAW file to get the look and contrast I want. To finishi it off, I add a little "post-crop vignette" to eliminate some distraction from the edges.

    Thanks Mike. Gonna have to give it a try. Yours are some of the most stunning (I know, I overuse that word, but I mean it) bw conversions I've seen.

    Hans, stop that! All I have is the measly 28 Elmarit and seeing these 28 cron shots has me thinking of exchanging it even though it would not be a smart $$ decision! That 28 cron always looks so magical!
