    Thanks Lloyd. I must confess, I'm a very mediocre snapper at best, but the M8 is a real joy to use. Most of the shots were taken at "A" so Leica must be doing it right, and they are jpgs straight out of the box. Happy shooting! Regards, Mango

    PS. The woman's cigar-smoking husband saw me standing on Madison & 80th with the M8 cammy, and said "nice camera" and then proceeded to tell me he's a film fan, with a M7 and R8. I took the pic of his wife as a test shot to show him, and I thought she was gorgeous. I find older women very gracious, particularly if they are well dressed, something rare today when everyone is wearing Juicy Couture, Ugg boots and a Louis Vuitton bag.

    I'm not sure you're gonna sell me that "mediocre" idea. Some clear evidence of a very fine eye. Keep it up, and share more.

    Thanks for sharing the story of the shot of the woman. I love it when things like that happen.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Hi All,

    Again, a lot of wonderful photographs.

    Mango,

    Nice to the NYC photographs. I am off there in just over 11 weeks so it is great to see the reminders. It is amazing that such a big building like St Patricks can appear dwarfed. I love the scale of Manhattan.

    Jono,

    That Zeiss 25 must be sharp considering you are also a 75 Summicron owner!

    Lloyd/Mike,

    Again nice photographs!

    Hi Gary
    I always thought the WATE was a bit of a bother, but recently I have a small bag which takes an M8 with the WATe AND the finder fitted, suddenly it's a lovely thing to use.
    I tend to use it on one focal length at a time, but I don't mind about the speed (I really don't need better than f4 for wide angle).
    It IS sharp, but it does have a lovely glow about it.

    Lloyd, thanks for the kind words, Mike, the granny and girl shot is completely fabulous

    Daughter-in-law, but I prefer to consider her my daughter-in-love, so both, I suppose. Can't say why, or if the bokeh does or does not "look like" noctilux bokeh, it was taken with my Nocti. Could be the sharpening I do before posting to the web.

    Here are a couple more from the same day. The Noctilux was the only lens I even had with me. By the way, both the groom and the photog in this first one are my sons:

    True, so true... and I didn't have to worry about a teenage daughter... some other poor bloke had to worry about his daughters dating my four sons!

    It is true what Jono sais about being in love.

    It does look like noctilux, just stoped dow which is not very often and nice to see.

    You hit the nail on the head, I have to admit to inferiority in that we only have three sons, but they've still brought home some delightful and scantily clad beauties . . . . Poor Parents!

    Beautiful images... I'm actually thinking of selling mine, but now that I see these, and go back and look at those I took at my son's wedding... maybe not.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    All these handsome and beautiful people! Well done everyone. Lloyd, I especially like the shot of your pre-cleaned son. Strange resemblance to your avatar.

    Now, this is off the reservation a bit. I was ruminating this morning about all the discussions of digital vs. film, grain/not grain, processing, etc. and ended up producing this little thing using Silver Efex's "Tintype" setting. I think this proves that an ugly lamp by any other name...

    I like that effect. I guess I'm going to have to breakdown and get Silver Efex.

    Yes, he does bear some resemblance.. although I may have to change the Avatar as I shaved off the beard yesterday... jury is still out as to whether it will stay off... my wife's a fan, in fact, we had been married 8 years before she ever saw me without it. I have another son who actually looks more like me. Here's a sample shot:

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    I like that combination of camera,lens, subject, iso and processing. The thing is that there are a lot of variables and the processing is the final touch or step so the more you can (and know what to) do in this final part is vety important but my idea is to know and be able to do a lot but do the least.

    Maiden flight of the 28 Cron. Nothing special, just had to try it out. Wide open, of course!
