    Many thanks for the encouragement from Lloyd, Mohammed, and Matt - the quality, and quantity, on this thread can be a bit daunting.

    Matt - Yamnuska is on the Eastern edge of the Rockies - an hour or less west of Calgary, 10 minutes north of the trans-canada highway.

    I use curves much more than levels in PS, at the moment anyway. I tend to a rather dense, saturated style, like slightly under-exposed slide film, which is my history, but I usually find the ACR5 colours quite garish and surreal, at least when compared with the RPP results - on their own they seem fine. I used to use clarity regularly on my little Canon's files, but I don't find that the M8 files need it, and I have gone from bicubic-sharper to bilinear when downsizing M8 files for the web, as bicubic-sharper seemed to produce rather 'crunchy' results. I often apply the Linear Contrast preset under curves, as it seems quite often to be just the right amount. I am also still learning the camera - I have it on Auto ISO, as that seems to be intelligent functionality, but ISO is not displayed in the viewfinder, so I don't notice until reviewing the files how often it is pushing the ISO. I am also becoming more aware of the danger of overexposing the highlights of a digital file - it can look very ugly.

    Perhaps, on another thread, I should take a file, process it a couple of different ways, keeping track of what I do, and post the results (plus the raw file) for comments and suggestions.

    Again, many thanks,

    Ross
    Ross: Very beautiful up there. My niece and her family live in Calgary. It sounds like you certainly know what you're doing with the pp. Everybody seems to have a preferred process that gets them an image they like (I haven't figured it out yet, so my pp's all over the map). Overexposing's my biggest problem, esp. with these fast lenses. Can't fix it in PP. Keep posting. Cheers, Matt

    Osman - thank you for the kind words - I'm still swooning over your beautiful waterfall (and, to be honest, waterfall shots usually leave me rather cold).

The ridge shot is all Adobe though, as I couldn't get close with the RPP version. Colour balance is my main problem - I may have to start using my WhiBal card more, particularly for flower shots, until I get better at it.
    HI There
    Nice shots - I like the Red Lily and the last view shot the best, but I reckon that the colours look a little flatter than you perhaps meant?

    Of course, that could be what you're looking for, in which case it works pretty well.

    I'm a lazy goodfornothing, and my view of your workflow is that it's terribly complicated (and it must be terribly time consuming as well). I'm quite aware that some converters are better than others in some cases, but generally speaking the differences are small, but the disconnect you (Me of course) get by swapping between makes things difficult.

    The two major DAM packages: Aperture and Lightroom, both do a really good job with the M8 files, and the benefits bestowed by a simpler workflow and therefore more time to learn the nuances of the packages can make things much easier.

    I very rarely spend more than 5 minutes on PP on any image - usually less than a minute (of course, you might say and it shows ). I know what I want, and I go and get it , my problem is perhaps that I'm not very consistent in what I want, which means that the results lack coherence (but that's just a reflection of me!).

    As for colour . . . . well, it seems to me that it's rather like carrying a big pile of magazines, as long as you leave it well alone they stay stacked up, but if you try pulling one out the whole lot goes.

    Of course, you can mess with the white balance, but surely what you are after is a reflection of the natural light, where a mid grey probably isn't mid grey?

    I've long since changed to using Daylight white balance in daylight - it gives me a real understanding of how the camera deals with colour, and, of course, if necessary it's easy to do a batch change to a number of images at once. Recently, I was doing some Auto White Balance testing for someone else, and it simply reminded me of how messy things can become, especially in mixed light and shade.

    I seem to be going on - sorry, and probably it's all rubbish anyway. What I'm trying to say is that simplicity is really helpful, and when you pare things down to the basics (one program, one WB, one sensor) suddenly things are clearer, and it's easy to understand what you really do want, and to change things accordingly.

    right . . . set soapbox off

    Thank you very much, Jono. Your responses are always highly appreciated. This waterfall could also leave you cold, freezing cold, if you believe me

    I'm with you here, Jono. I leave my white balance on Daylight probably 90% of the time. I find I get much more consistent results, and it's easy to change the few shots that miss in Lightroom. More like using film.

    Thanks for sharing the soapbox.

    Hi There Daniel
    that's completely fab . . . but I think you have a bad case of 'red edge'

    incidentally, two questions:

    1. how is the colour shift with the 18 distagon
    2. what sort of filters are you using with the M9?

    all the best

    Hi Jono,

    1. It is noticeable, I have to use the WATE correction because those are the framelines my lens brings up. cornerfix takes care of it perfectly.
    2. Lee RF75 system with a 3 stop Lee ND grad. I also use the glass out of a 77mm B+W MRC linear pol (fits into the slot) but not with something as wide as the 18mm. I have two Singh-Ray ND grad filters custom-cut to fit the RF75 on their way.

    All the best

    I see, Jono. The only ice that I may perhaps be able to break is at the parties

    An excellent shot with the beloved 75 'cron, and -I think- very good pp to boot.

    Matt, this is one of the best 24 lux shots I have ever seen. Amazing colors and very appropriate use of DOF. Lovely. No other lens could have done this in the way that Leica renders. You make that lens sing!

    Thankyou Jerry, Mohammed, Matt and Steve

    Ashwin, those shots have a very film-like look, could be the grain? I like it.

    Ashwin: Well photographed. Makes me want to find a beach with waves and water warm enough to swim in. The set really gives you a sense of the warmth and fun. Great color and pp! Love the action, grouping, and the break of the incoming wave in this last one.

    Cheers, Matt

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

    Honestly... I'm falling in love with the M9.

    The colours are VERY film like and the files are very film like.

    I'm using it a lot and the resolution of the images are REALLY making me jumping out of my screen : its my little MF landscape machine

    All images taken with a WATE ( 16-18-21 ) and no filters whatsoever ( no HDR as well, just a beautifull natural scenery ) :







    oh yes, clean my sensor I must

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

    Lloyd, Osman, Steve, Matt, Ashwin thanks for the kind words on the Hollyhocks - as you say, hard to take a bad shot!
    Jerry - glad you liked cool Simeon and the loos . . .
    Mike - I guess we're all capable of judging a girl in a minskirt and wellies. . . .they do look dangerous though don't they!

    Mohammed - the daisy and bee with the Noctilux are lovely you seem to have exactly the opposite composition from my hollihocks so it's very fine

    Matt - you only think you want to be where I am - it's only my consummate photography that makes it look so good

    Ashwin - summer days - lovely shots - it reminds me of when the entire family used to decamp to cornwall for the 6 week school holidays - surfing beaches every afternoon (at least, it seems like it in my memory, but Cornish summers being what they are that meant 6 sunny days in 6 weeks!).

    These days they'd rather go surfing (or to Cornwall) without us oldies . . . . skiing is completely different however (something to do with daddies credit card )

    Proenca - isn't it just a great camera for landscapes - lovely shots

    ShiroKuro - that moody black and white flower shot is splendid - love it.

    all the best

    Just this guy you know

    Charles, I absolutely love what you are doing with your B&W conversions. They suit the setting very well! Even the grafitti image, which I normally would have preferred in color, is outstanding with your powerful conversion.

    Proenca, great landscape work. The M9 is outstanding for this as well.

    Ooooo, I'm so jealous!! Which beach was this? Great job dealing with the lighting and exposure too, the SD sun can get really bright!

    jono great photos as usual from the Fuji days

    Daniel - great sunset, that photo really made my think "damn, whish it was me taking that "

    ShiroKuro - fantastic black and white processing ! lovely photos

    Jono, Otumay, AshwinRao, Lloyd, Steve and Jerry : thanks for your kind comments .) Btw Jerry, the waterfall & wife picture was though to take : first because it took almost 1 hour and half trekking to get there and second because it is a 1 sec exposure…. which is though to take a few 1second exposures getting the wife to be standing still when both of us are exhausted
