    Re: The Latest & Greatest Fun w/Digital M Images

    Three or four years ago, when I was on the road, Mimi went for a "little" weekend ride with some friends (just 104 miles through the mountains... rain, snow and wind for their trouble). Of course, she had a blast.

    They took a little side trip into a canyon which is home to a "ghost town", a mining town which produced more than $13,000,000 of silver from 1870 to 1900. She told me about it, and had mentioned several times since that she thought I would find it interesting.

    Monday was a holiday here, and when plans with friends fell through, she suggested we visit the place, and then do a ride on roads in an area I had never experienced.

    Turns out that it's not really a "ghost town". The large mines closed long ago, but small scale mining operations continue, and the town was never completely abandoned, and there are still a dozen or so full-time residents, together with some summer homes. There remains a lot of evidence of its former glory, and I was able to capture a little. I hope to get back there to photograph more in the near future.

    Abandoned ore dump:


    Ore car and rusting boiler:




    Steam powered ore car winch:








    All with the M8, 35 Cron ASPH combo.

    Great photo op! Talk about back breaking hard work! Looks like a fun trip on a beautiful day! Nicely shot & documented Lloyd!

    Jono: Thanks. Like them both. The washed out B & W is perfect in this first one. "Driving" a tractor's a kid's dream come true!

    Lloyd: +1. I really love these old West places. You've started to capture the sense of history that surrounds you. It's easy looking at your photos to populate them and make the wheels turn and hum (more likely clatter). Looking forward to more. It'd also, be interesting to see, who still lives in a place like that.

    Thanks, Lloyd. I like the Hexanon 90mm, but don't get that many opportunities to shoot it. I suspect mine is back-focusing a bit (offset by very bright light and thus smaller apertures here).

    Thanks guys. It was fun, and I really want to go back. I've been researching some other spots related to mining history around here, and may try to shoot some of them as well.

    These are really nice Matt. I love the way that 24 lux draws, and you've used it wonderfully here. Also, the color is amazing, just pops off the screen.

    In honor of Nitro and his portrait, I'll put in one of my favorite shots of one of my pups (Pete)

    (yeah, it's a little weird for a pet portrait but I'm funny that way).

    Woody, your Ecuador series were wonderful. I'm rather sad that they have ended. Maybe a few more that you may have overlooked?

    Some HEAVY processing (lightroom 3 has some fun presets) and one lucky catch when I was petting my dog on a walk I heard a bird tweet and turned around to see this little guy.

    Re: The Latest & Greatest Fun w/Digital M Images

    I think a 50/1.1 would be a fun toy as well
    Thought I doubt my eye ability / camera calibration enough to use it in close range head-and-shoulders shots.
    I think it would be splendid for subject isolation at distance.. as we've seen some other users in this thread do.

    Re: The Latest & Greatest Fun w/Digital M Images

    Lloyd, I have always liked images of historic mining areas...old rusted "stuff"/old rotting wood, etc etc. Nice work. Colorado is filled with areas similar to this one...hope i get a chance to photograph some this summer and fall. Eleanor

    [QUOTE=Lloyd;225901]Three or four years ago, when I was on the road, Mimi went for a "little" weekend ride with some friends (just 104 miles through the mountains... rain, snow and wind for their trouble). Of course, she had a blast.

    They took a little side trip into a canyon which is home to a "ghost town", a mining town which produced more than $13,000,000 of silver from 1870 to 1900. She told me about it, and had mentioned several times since that she thought I would find it interesting.

    Monday was a holiday here, and when plans with friends fell through, she suggested we visit the place, and then do a ride on roads in an area I had never experienced.

    Turns out that it's not really a "ghost town". The large mines closed long ago, but small scale mining operations continue, and the town was never completely abandoned, and there are still a dozen or so full-time residents, together with some summer homes. There remains a lot of evidence of its former glory, and I was able to capture a little. I hope to get back there to photograph more in the near future.

    Daniel: Be careful! It's easy to get drawn into the Dark Side by those presets. You'll then find all of your computer time used by searching for, and downloading ,more free presets! We'll have lost you! Seriously, nice photos. I like the composition of the bird photo. The spikes didn't work very well, though.

    Osman: Very nice! Lot's of red. #1has a strong focus to the right with the triangular group and the long cast shadows. The woman with the baby seems uncomfortable, #2 with the unused ticket booths is very well framed. simple planes of materials, three booths and the cat walking through. Couldn't have planned it better!
    #4 has the strong diagonal at the font of the steps that almost divides the photo in two. The groupings of people are located to reinforce this angle and the diminishing perspective. The light on the paving in front of the people enlivens the photo .

    Cheers, Matt.

    Matt: Thank you so much for taking time to comment on my photographs.

    I admit that I'm rather a lazy shooter acting more on instincts, but over the years came to understand the importance of analysis and appreciation in visual arts and crafts.

    This forum has dramatically changed the way I look at photography and photographers, and for this I'm humbly thankful to you all

    Two shots from sunset in the stormy conditions we had today. I really need to use my pano head when I take these sorts of shots, had very little success stitching these shots. First shot is 9mm EFOV (36 megapixel with 18mm Distagon) and second shot is a single picture with the 50mm C-Sonnar at f/8 underexposed to control the sun then pushed in post.

    Thanks Eleanor. I'm looking forward to exploring and photographing some more places around here. There are many.

    Great stuff Osman. Great idea, and excellent execution. I really like thematic series like this.

    Osman: From what, we've seen, your instincts are very good! I sort of over-analyze in hindsight. I try to figure out what I liked about my, and other's, photos. My hope is that I'll internalize it and subliminally repeat the behavior.

    Cheers, Matt
