    Thanks, interesting look
    I shot these with the 35 Lux at 1.4 in LOW light in my kitchen last night. Just the light from above our table. I missed focus in the 2nd one but still liked it. These were also shot at ISO 1250.

    Nothing special, image-wise. Just playing around with the 35 Cron pre-ASPH, version IV, and the Hoya 072 filter. Also, some different IR processing ideas.

    Cool Lloyd! I love IR though I never seriously gave it a try. I may have to pick up one of those filters to give it a whirl! Cool images.

    I think you'd like it, Steve, and a lot of your photography would lend itself to some really cool IR. However, if you do consider it, check out this thread:http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showthread.php?t=257 It lists the lenses that are best for IR. Many of the more modern lenses (especially the ASPH lenses) don't work well, and have a hotspot in the center of the image. There are workarounds for some, so this is good read, if you're interested in IR.

    Great photos Lloyd.

    I too really like the 2nd one. Looks like I'll have to pickup a 072 filter and try it on my 35mm IV and 50mm pre-asph. Always wanted to play with some IR processing.

    Thanks for the link.

    P.S. Do you mind sharing your workflow in that 2nd photo? Thanks.

    Re: The All New More and More Fun w/M8 Images

    Just to close the loop on something I posted a few pages back... the shed building. After posting that original shot I realized that perhaps this wasn't the exact forum for that sort of thing. I imagined taking a lot more photos of the process (I did but won't bore you with them) but found myself pretty busy with the job of building the thing.

    Second shot shows it at about 90% complete. In the Fall, once the pine siding has dried and shrunk, I'll install vertical batttens over the edges of the siding. Otherwise, it's ready to go.

    Very nice. Great lens, that CV 35/2,5. Sharp, contrasty, cheap. Can't think of a single reason not to own one.

    No problem. I set the WB to Tungsten for the shot (always do with that particular filter). f5.6, with infinity set to about f5.6 to f8 for focus correction.

    For processing, I followed this in Photoshop CS4: http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/showpo...8&postcount=46 for which I've created an action, and to which I've added a Curves adjustment layer, which I adjust to taste for each image. That will leave you with a color image, similar to the others I posted. For this image, I then used a B&W adjustment layer, and played with the Blue and Red sliders (usually moving them all the way to the left) until I got what I wanted. BTW, in this image the sky was completely overcast. Otherwise, I'd have a very dark sky.

    Hope this makes sense. Good luck.

    Thanks Lloyd,
    but you forgot something: It is really small
    There is only one reason not own one - 2/35 IV
    Three other shots with this sweet little lens

    1) Netherland / Enkhuizen
    2+3) France / Normandie

    You're right, really small. All in all, a great lens. And these are really nice examples of why.

    It has been a while since I had an M8 but thanks to Steve I have returned to the fold. Camera arrived today in great condition and works wonderfully.

    Nice Photos Docmoore.

    Clean and natural looking, not too overly processed. I like it.

    Enjoy your M8 once again...

    Here are some shots taken while I was walking my Summicron 75. Handheld, trying to snatch a clear view from cars passing by. I love this lens.
    Hope you like them,

    Really pity. But believe me Lloyd, you must have this combination. It is not expensive and is preparing a lot of fun.

    Another style of alternate process (besides IR) that I find interesting. These are last year's Garlic Scapes, it won't be long before this year's are up and circling.

    Thanks Lloyd! C1 to PS4 with some Silver Efex Pro stuff thrown in. No film grain effects, but some of the tint from the Ambrotype setting. Then a bunch of curves, etc. It was probably more work than it was worth, but if it succeeds at not looking like a lot of work, then maybe it does work.

    I have a 90 Summicron on hand for a week to test and this is one of the first shots I took with it. I have a feeling this is going to be a GREAT portrait lens...
