    Thanks Osman, but be careful. It's a slippery slope....

    HI James
    As you say - a slippery slope. Speaking of slippery!


    Taken with the MATE at 35mm

    I really like to use black and white for landscape as well, this is with the WATE at 16mm

    Jono, I like the perspective of the clouds, tree and road in the second image, but would love to see it in color. I guess I'm just not much of a B&W person.

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Been awhile since posting on this thread. I love the images and am jealous at the same time. Jealous that it'll be several more months before I can order my M9. Great images all and it has made my decision to get this gem of a camera easier.

    This thread has also helped me with lens choices. Please keep posting samples.

    Now Don's encouraged me there'll be no end of trouble!



    I like the teetering distortion on this because of the juxtaposition with the criss cross sky.

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Hi Jono - Once again you did it with the recent image. I love the combination of the sky and cathedral. I also think it just "works" with the distortion of the building. You taught me something here my friend as I would have attempted to make the building appear straight using all sorts of movements on my WRS.

    There's a sense of something here that I feel really makes for a good image whether it's a landscape image or not. I like to call it soul.

    Thank you for sharing.

    HI Don
    Thank you!
    Well, it's back to the lackadaisical I'm afraid . . .I don't have the movements , and so I can't do it. My trouble however, is that 'soul' seems to be all I have!
    I always do the old thing - you know, take a shot, then stop and think and take THE shot . . . . but it's always the first one that works (before I start thinking).
    It's the reason I don't use a tripod, and why I haven't stepped into the MF world, too much thought always seems to spoil it!

    all the best

    Never be afraid to follow you heart! I think at times we over think what we want to capture/convey and loose sight of what's in front of us. Call it what you want however I see a lot of soul in your lackadaisical landscape images. I'll sometimes take numerous shots and find that the best are either the first or the last.

    Sometimes the act of the numerous shots are just me returning to the "good old days" of film.

    Cheers

    I can completely relate to this. The annoying thing is when you review the shots and the realization hits you that not only was the last shot the best, but the scene before you obviously was still getting better although it didn't seem like it at the time. (That camera vision vs human vision of light thing is a bugger some times!)

    Fabulous Arne
    I especially like the first two . . . and I hope your M9 appears really soon, not because the pictures will be better, but because you'll really enjoy it!

    P.S. did you chop down all the trees for the last shot

    Thank you all for the comments and kind words, much appreciated!
    Jono, I was on the fence for a long while re the M9, but the enthusiasm and great results I've seen posted here and elsewhere tipped the scale. For me it will serve mainly as a high-quality travel camera, but with the inceased resolution, it will no doubt see landscape/nature usage for larger prints as well.

    Arne! Lovely pictures - can I ask where exactly where those beautiful mountains are? Could they be somewhere in northern Sweden?

    That last ice picture is moving!

    Hei Leif!
    Glad you enjoyed the images. The mountains are actually Norwegian, close to Lom. The lake is called Tyssevannet as far as I remember. Great place.

    I should blush (I even considered Scotland for a while). That roundness had me confused.
    Now I know I have a couple of areas to study still (actualy a lot). (Lom is just about the driest place in Norway btw).

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Dave Gallagher of Capture Integration just emailed me saying a M9 along with a 35 and 50mm lenses will be heading my way early next week. Oh boy, just in time for my trip to Carmel then Yosemite the following week. I also just now ordered a Thumbs-up.

    I was going to just sit back and not say anything till I posted my first images however I just couldn’t resist the urge.

    Get ready Jono I hope to be posting landscape images of my own very soon!

    I am sooooo jealous. Guess My M8.2 will just have to do.

    Kidding aside the M9 is incredible.

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    A few B&W conversions from my M8. Actually, I used the out-of-camera B&W JPEG, which is almost always very close to what I want, and then did some tuning in Silver Efex Pro. Even though I have RAW+JPEG set, this is my usual approach for B&W -- might be a mistake not using the RAW file, but I kind of like starting out with a B&W.

    All these were shot in Buena Vista, CO.

    1. Buffalo Peaks (Zeiss Biogon 25mm f/2.8)
    2. East Flank of Mt. Princeton (Elmar-C 90mm f/4)
    3. Sangre de Cristo over the Valley (Elmar-C 90mm f/4)

    Looks like I can official join this thread now. Here's some shots from this afternoon as I'm getting reacquainted using a rangefinder. Wish I had a better sky however that'll have to wait till next week.













    Next step is to clean the sensor...

    These images are really beautiful. First landscapes from the M9 I have seen that have really made me want one.
    How long were the exposures for these photographs? and where were they taken? if you don't mind.

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Hi Devon, thanks for the compliments.

    First shot was 3 exposures, 1/6s for the sky, 0.7s for the water and 2.8s for painting some extra detail into the rock.

    The second shot is one exposure 1.4s.

    Last one was also 3 exposures, 1/6s for the sky, 0.7s for the ocean and as a base to add vignette and colour to the closest part and 2.8s for the close part and a bit more detail under the water.

    First two shots are taken near Watermans bay and the last one just outside Mindarie, both places are in Western Australia and very easily accessible.

    Wonderful shot, Jaap. I love night time shooting of the stars but haven't done much yet with the M9. I can see Orion in the upper center.

    These were all taken today as I head to Carmel. Sedona had beautiful clouds however I wasn't able to stay longer than an hour. South Rim had promises of clouds but nothing like Sedona. I'm hold up in Williams now after being on the go for over 13 hours.

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Don I must say I got a little jealous looking at these. You're so nonchalant about them, as if you took them off your back porch! I did a tour through the southwest with my wife a few years back and absolutely loved the area. Hope to return soon. Very cool that you live so close to such beauty. I suppose I shouldn't overlook the fact that I'm only a few hour drive from Yosemite. =)

    Thanks. I love living in the Southwest and never tire of seeing all the beautiful areas that are within several hours drive of me - guess that's why I'm a landscape photographer. I love the files I'm getting with this camera I just need to be able to spend more time at one spot to achieve what I'm searching for - the perfect image; maybe next week in Yosemite who knows....

    I feel I am getting close. I'm experimenting working the files between C1 and CS4 and haven't decided which is better yet.

    We woke the other day to find all the trees coated in ice. We really didn't have an ice storm, rather we had a big "fog" that left everything with an ice layer.

    Re: The M9 as a Landscape camera

    Good Lord!

    Generally, landscapes bore me to tears ... but every single one of you defy that short coming of mine

    I cannot attribute it all to some piece of equipment, as talent, passion and humility is absolutely rampant here, and burnishes Leicas little red dot to a sparkle!

    However, being a M9 nut-case myself, I have to say that most certainly it is the little camera that could ... and then some ... and then some.

    Every time I use the thing, I wonder why I own anything else.

    Thanks to all of you for sharing such beautiful, beautiful work ...

    -Marc

    Thank you, Don. I really only work in color, but in this shot there was only some muted light browns in the grasses; sky and snow were white, the trees were essentially black. B&W definitely works better for this one.
