    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    In Salt Lake City on business this morning, and had a little time to kill before my first appointment. Came across this:

    The US District Courts building in Salt Lake City, UT is about to expand, and as a result the entire city block on which it sits is being demolished. However, this building, the old Odd Fellows Hall, built in the early 1900s, has been offered for sale. A classic building, it has housed various businesses over the years... everything from Law firms, Architects, bars and restaurants. It's ready to move... come make a bid!!

    Was in Portland and had an extra 90 minutes to spare after meetings, so headed out to Multomah Falls. It was a dark rainy/snowy day, so I opted for B&W processing due to the poor light.

    I have an on-going personal project to get a picture of this pub in Wiltshire that does it justice. This is the latest attempt, but I shall be going back early morning to get some with more even lighting (and I will remember to remove the aerial too )

    This is very nice. I like the lighting on this one, and the clouds add to the background.

    Re: More and more fun with M8 images

    Thank you Woody. It's a nice scene to shoot.

    Rob - I do all my B&W conversions in LR2. A few pages back in this thread (page 29), I outlined by B&W conversion method:

    http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showth...t=1092&page=29

    Nothing fancy. LR2 gives some very nice tonality controls for B&W conversions. I'm very happy with it.

    More magic!

    How did you carry the camera, and how did the M8 handle the cold? I've had to hide mine under my coat in cold temps, and I can't imagine skiing with it.

    Thanks Lloyd. I never thought about the cold . . . but it was a sunny day today, so maybe it wasn't an issue.

    As for carrying it . . . . I was actually carrying two bodies, as that's easier than changing lenses. I use a LowPro Sling shot 100AW thingy - when you swing it around to your front, it opens on top (i.e. on the side) which means you can grab the camera without taking the bag off - it also has the advantage that you don't need to take the bag off to turn it around when you get on a chair lift (just swing it to the front).

    It's been quite a revelation this year - I stop and take photographs, and now it's Emma waiting for me at the end of the piste!

    HI Gary
    No - just the standard Leica IR filter. It's high up . . . . and I used the red filter in Silver efex pro when doing the conversions

    I ordered an 8.2 from Robert White at the end of February I'm still waiting for it's arrival, and asking a lot of questions in EXTREME anticipation. Thank you for sharing! I admire your photography!

    Where were you skiing? It looks just beautiful!

    Thanks for the info, Jono. In the cold I typically carry a spare battery in a pocket with a hand warmer, and will switch them at regular intervals. I also try to hold the camera under at least my outer coat; which keeps it somewhat warm, but doesn't result in the lens fogging over when I take it out to shoot. That's the procedure I used at Bryce Canyon last month. Of course I was hiking, and not skiing. Skiing with the camera under the coat could present some issues.

    I have that same bag, and use it for the Leica gear (I also use the 200AW with my DSLR when biking), but find that the M8 tends to shift around when placed in the top. I've actually broken the shade on my 28 'cron as a result, which is very frustrating. There is a lot convenience to that sling design for sure, so a little shifting isn't too bad, I suppose.

    Thanks again for the info, and the marvelous, and inspiring photos!

    Jono, I can't believe that you go skiing to mountains like that! The places we have here in PA are like hills in comparison.

    Very nice shot. Perfect composition. I like the separation you're getting with the wide aperture here. Nice 3D look. Let's see more!!

    Nice shot Mark. When I have higher ISO captures in low light like this, I always check to see how a B&W conversion would look, as sometimes the B&W tonalities are very nice compared to the high ISO color. I'd be curious to see this shot processed as B&W. May not work here, as the colors on the control board really help define this image.

    Hi Mike,

    I usually prefer the B&W versions of my Leica shots. I use Silver Efex Pro in Photoshop to do the conversions. With this shot, as you suspected, the grayscale version was flat and not as interesting. The mixing board almost looks like a pin ball arcade with all the different colors. The story lost something without the colors.

    Thanks for your comments.

    Thanks Lloyd.
