    Lloyd, wonderful images of your beautiful wife.

    SteveM8, that's a terrific shot! Great light.

    Jono, Lovely place, but your shots all seem a bit soft, what are you processing them with?

    Hi TR Smith,

    Great shot of the strainers! Tack sharp. What do you use to process them with?

    Thanks Tim, much appreciated... and this shot of yours is great! Looks like you eat a lot of pasta around your place.

    Thanks Gary, C1 for all my Leica shots. Nothing else seems to even get close.

    Lloyd, I actually do love pasta. But this was just an attempt to find a little color in an otherwise bleak February landscape by shopping at the kitchen store!

    Great shots. Where is that? Looks a lot like Albany, NY.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Thanks Lloyd. That's funny that you say that because I did my undergrad work at Albany, SUNY Albany to be exact.

    These shots were actually taken in downtown Philly where I teach. The people were shot today during my lunch break, the houses a couple of days ago on my way home.

    Oh yeah, I see it now. But that is ironic about your attending SUNY (great place), and don't you think there are parts of Albany that look very similar?

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Hi Lloyd, Its been awhile since I was last in Albany. But I as best as I can remember, Albany does resemble Philly in the sense that both are smaller sized cities with quite a few blocks of row houses, just like the ones in the pictures. BTW, How are you so familiar with both cities?

    Philly I only know from a number of visits over the years. As for Albany, my oldest son lives there, and we've visited a number of times, most recently just three weeks ago. I'm from Boston originally.

    HI Tim - Love the strainers. The guy in the Bell Tower was dark, with a slow shutter speed. The landscape shots are pretty sharp - but maybe I should refine my processing a little to make 'em look sharper when reduced.
    I was using Aperture and Silver efex Pro.

    Just this guy you know

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Jono I can't see what you see in the original files, so apologies if it's the medium. I find the 28 cron to be remarkably sharp, sharp enough to justify it's exorbetent cost.

    One thing I have begun to do with Silver Efex is to completely turn off the "Film Effects". Each of the pre-sets includes some use of it, so each time you select a different exposure combo you have to deselect it. But once I've done that I am able to use the other controls to make a conversion that seems cleaner to my eye. But of course, your mileage may vary.

    Thanks for the compliment! Just got lucky with that shot and will be a good one I can look back on in 15 years when he is older.

    Here is one from today. I'm not much of a landscape guy but thought this tree would make for a cool shot.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Playing around with some fast glass. First two with the Nocti wide open, second two with the CV 50/1.5 wide open. Focusing was a little tricky (always is wide open with the Nocti), as it was a little breezy out.

    (I'll have to try this again when I have more time, and choose the very same subject, same framing, etc., but I thought it an interesting comparison.)

    Very nice series Lloyd. Your family is well used to you with a camera and they all seem at ease. Well done!

    This from a forgotten day at the harbor, trying to make something from nothing. Just for color (can you tell I'm sick of winter?)

    It's pretty amazing but I can spot a 28 cron shot a mile away. Love that lens

    That is just a gorgeous image. Makes me hungry for lobster (although the truth is, despite being from Boston, I actually prefer crab), and BLUEBERRIES!!!

    I'm with you, Tim... bring on Spring!

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Another from the CV 50/1.5 Nokton, wide open. I purchased a copy of this lens a couple of years ago, when I first got my M8. I liked it very much, but then ended up with four 50mm lenses and sold the Nokton. I recently decided to get another, and this arrived yesterday. Just playing around with it wide open reminds me why it is I like it so much. I draws beautifully, with just the right "sharp" softness. Certainly for portraiture, I prefer it over the 50 Lux ASPH.

    The whole series is really nice, Mike. I particularly like the last one.

    What lens(es) were you using here?

    Those are all great Mike! It looks like a fantastic place and I'm wicked jealous of all that sun and fun. One more month for me before I get a taste of the tropics.

    Thanks for posting them!

    Yeah, she's aged, but she can still really sing.

    Our company (SAP) hired her to do a concert for us on the last night. Pretty cool - I was about 15 feet away from her.

    Hi All,

    Yet more lovely photographs!

    Mike,

    I have to admit to being most envious of your week in the sun!

    Lloyd,

    A lovely shot with the 50/1.5.

    I really like the last two Lloyd. The composition on that B&W 50 Nokton shot is very nice. I like how the trees make a "hill" shape, complimenting the moutain range in the back.

    I love your images and note the number taken with the 28 Cron. I (now crazy I admit) sold my 28 Cron for a not too princely sum. Now that I am admittedly crazy I will be buying it again. I think every opportunity to sell a Leica lens should be with a mandatory 4 month sentence to a no-trading/selling moratorium! Changing your mind is a mind numbing financial mess.

    28 Cron wide open:
    My own image, and I mistakenly said this was taken with the CV 50/1.5, when in fact it was with the 28 Cron!!

    I agree completely!! I've fallen victim too often. In fact, my wife talked my out of selling me Nocti just last night.

    As for the 28 Cron, I love it so much, I recently considered getting a second copy... just because.
