Intensely good work.

    If I had to give this a name, I'd call it "home sick".

    beautiful b&w and framing! great shot vlad!

    Thanks, Matt, Lloyd, Ashwin, Charles, Steve, Steve, and Jerry. This was my first tradeshow with the M9 that wasn't in Las Vegas, so I was concerned I wouldn't be able to come up with anything decent. Great to have feedback that these images were worth capturing.

    Jerry, don't know if this would work for you, but I tend to go out with the 18mm and only shoot that for the day. I don't get as many keepers as with the 24mm, but there are always some very nice and unusual shots in the mix. You start to think in terms of what would look good in 18mm. Plus, the increased depth of field makes it super easy to quickly grab a shot on the fly.

    Here are some more San Francisco shots with the 24mm lux. I didn't have to go far for these, as this was just a stone's throw from the press room at the CTIA tradeshow.

More than that, it is just an exhibition gallery. Post one or two images, and folks can drink it in fully. More is overwhelming, but that's just my opinion, others have theirs.

    Hi guys, let me jump in with my $.02 worth (although it may not be worth quite that much). I happen to take a view contrary to that of our esteemed forum-mate. First off, and particularly when the images relate to a single theme or subject, I like it when there are more than one or two posted together. I think we get more of the story, and I appreciate that.

    Second, take the criticism of specific images with grain of salt. Bottomline, it's just an opinion, and in the case of your Angola images, Peter, I happen to completely disagree with Chuck. The three he singled out and said you should delete are among my favorites of the group. Vlad seems to agree, as he singled two of them out as well.

    Opinions are like bellybuttons, everybody has them, and most of them stink. I know mine do at times, and there is no accounting for taste. I've been shooting for clients for 30+ years, and I never cease to be amazed at how often the images I like best aren't chosen, and how often images I'd toss are.

    Next, I don't think this is primarily a critique thread. I think most of us are just enjoying seeing images taken with our favorite camera system. If someone invites opinions, then great, you'll probably get them. But remember that they're just opinions. There is no single "right" way. And in fact, many folks here don't necessarily post their "best" work anyway, since they may be under contractual restrictions to clients.

    So, my take is post what you want, as many as you want. If someone has to work a little to single something out for comment, it's not that big a deal. If that's a problem for the critics, then maybe they can start a critique thread, and call the shots on that one. I think constructive criticism is valuable, and I think Chuck for example has a wealth of experience from which we can all benefit, but there's something to be said for having a place where we all just enjoy the images, and the more the merrier... good, bad, or indifferent.

    i also completely agree with lloyd here. for example, if peter had posted only two or three tight headshot portraits from this post, then we would have no idea what the context is - are these people his friends, strangers, where they are, what are they doing? another example is steve's recent post here. each of these photos shown individually will make it difficult for the viewer to understand the context.

    playing devil's advocate again, i also really like one of the photos that chuck said you should delete - specifically, this one:



    personally, i think motion blur works really well in certain situations, and it certainly fits for my tastes here. the motion blur enhances the excitement shown on these kids' faces, and for me, anything that can add to the evocative nature of the photo is a good thing.

    like lloyd said though, these are just my personal opinions too, and maybe they are of the stinky bellybutton variety i certainly recognize that my own photos aren't up to the high quality many of the people post here, including chuck too

    Lloyd!

    Very good comments. I very much know on how to take the comments or criticism or whatever. If someone thinks I should trash some of my work a) I won't do that if I disagree and 2b) I won't fall in depression. What I liked in Chuck's reply the most is the fact that he actually expanded a bit deeper on what he thinks about the images. I appreciate that, however, I/we know it is one single opinion. His comment photography being judged very much like a yes-no, black-white decision is a point which could be discussed or questioned.
    I enjoy this forum a lot and log-in daily to see what's new. And it is actually a good thing to see some controversy once in while - only that way any given feedback becomes somewhat more credible.

    Thanks again - Peter

    Nice set. Looks like a fun event in a great setting. Nicely captured.

    Plenty of fantastic images here. I would like to quote and comment on some, but I have not figured out how to quote a single image in a post. How do you do that?

    This one I captured this afternoon, 20 minutes before sunset on may way home from a client. The M9 is not too shabby

    By the way, what looks like sensordust is migrating birds!

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

    A few more from Wyoming.

    The sad reality of the emigrant trail:

    M8, 28 Cron

    The way West. (Behind me is Rattlesnake Pass. To my right is Devil's Gate, and to my left is the monument above. Though there were divergent trails westward, e.g., the Oregon Trail, California Trail, the Mormon Trail and the Pony Express, almost everyone had to pass through Rattlesnake Pass, so this portion of the trail was used by all. There are heavy wagon ruts to the side of the road, and a Pony Express station was located just behind and to the right of where I'm standing as I take this.)

    M8, CV 75/2.5 Heliar

    Since 1872 part of the Sun Ranch (still owned by the same family), horses graze in front of Devil's Gate, just as the Pony Express Riders horses did in this very pasture 150 years ago. The station here was just to the left of the image.

    M8, CV 75/2.5 Heliar

    The Sweetwater River, which flows through Devil's Gate, and into the North Platte River about 10 miles beyond. Here about 1/4 mile upstream from Devil's Gate.

    M8, CV 75/2.5 Heliar

    Part of the Rattlesnake Range, along the Sweetwater River, near Devil's Gate.

    M8, CV 21/4

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

    Many thanks to all of you who have commented on the bear. "Hungry Bear" might not have been the best of titles however we were at least 50 yards away from him while he was in the tree and you could hear him munching on the berries.

    I never allowed the bear to get closer than a couple hundred feet and never felt threaten. You also have to remember I stand 6-9 and I was also standing on a hill looking down at where the bear was walking along the road so to him I was huge.

    I do not advocate shooting wildlife with a rangefinder. The sole reason I wanted the 135 f/3.4 was for landscape - however I still had this trip in the back of by mind. I like to stretch the envelope to see just how much or how far I can go with my equipment.

Though there were divergent trails westward, e.g., the Oregon Trail, California Trail, the Mormon Trail and the Pony Express, almost everyone had to pass through Rattlesnake Pass, so this portion of the trail was used by all.

    M8, CV 75/2.5 Heliar

    Since 1872 part of the Sun Ranch (still owned by the same family), horses graze in front of Devil's Gate, just as the Pony Express Riders horses did in this very pasture 150 years ago. The station here was just to the left of the image.

    M8, CV 75/2.5 Heliar

    The Sweetwater River, which flows through Devil's Gate, and into the North Platte River about 10 miles beyond. Here about 1/4 mile upstream from Devil's Gate.

    M8, CV 75/2.5 Heliar

    Part of the Rattlesnake Range, along the Sweetwater River, near Devil's Gate.

    My first tries in the big city to go street shooting late at night. Lousy efforts, I am admitting weakness to be too shy to point the lens into a stranger's face. Guess the courage will come with experience.

    Wow. I highly appreciate your professional advice! I only started now [yesterday] to post some of my images to the public. Photography always was a hobby for me, starting with an F3 and slides, then moving over to my good old B&W darkroom, progressing to Pentax 67 and all B&W, i.e. restricting myself to 10 pics per roll, which is a real "school" to go through, aimed to "slow down". From these 10 pics a roll only a few made it to the printing stage in the darkroom at the time. Then I had some years not shooting at all mainly due to my daytime job... But since 2008 I'm back again, got myself a D700 and now a Leica M9... which, in a way, takes me "back" to the times of medium format and people shooting. I'm happy to be back. Digital is now the "crux" though... there is no "self-restriction" in terms of frames anymore... so the selection process is delayed to the processing stage, where a lot of things seem to be possible ["fixing"], but in reality are not! In fact, you need to be much more rigorous in throwing out the stuff which "doesn't work". There is rarely a "keeper" which wasn't one right out of the camera...
    Stunning website with stunning images you have!
    Thx, Peter
    Peter: Well said.

    Hi guys, let me jump in with my $.02 worth (although it may not be worth quite that much). I happen to take a view contrary to that of our esteemed forum-mate. First off, and particularly when the images relate to a single theme or subject, I like it when there are more than one or two posted together. I think we get more of the story, and I appreciate that.

    Second, take the criticism of specific images with grain of salt. Bottomline, it's just an opinion, and in the case of your Angola images, Peter, I happen to completely disagree with Chuck. The three he singled out and said you should delete are among my favorites of the group. Vlad seems to agree, as he singled two of them out as well.

    Opinions are like bellybuttons, everybody has them, and most of them stink. I know mine do at times, and there is no accounting for taste. I've been shooting for clients for 30+ years, and I never cease to be amazed at how often the images I like best aren't chosen, and how often images I'd toss are.

    Next, I don't think this is primarily a critique thread. I think most of us are just enjoying seeing images taken with our favorite camera system. If someone invites opinions, then great, you'll probably get them. But remember that they're just opinions. There is no single "right" way. And in fact, many folks here don't necessarily post their "best" work anyway, since they may be under contractual restrictions to clients.

    So, my take is post what you want, as many as you want. If someone has to work a little to single something out for comment, it's not that big a deal. If that's a problem for the critics, then maybe they can start a critique thread, and call the shots on that one. I think constructive criticism is valuable, and I think Chuck for example has a wealth of experience from which we can all benefit, but there's something to be said for having a place where we all just enjoy the images, and the more the merrier... good, bad, or indifferent.
    Lloyd: Also, well said. I think the variety of photographs, photographers, and intentions is the strength of this thread.

    Cheers, Matt

    This one I captured this afternoon, 20 minutes before sunset on may way home from a client. The M9 is not too shabby

    By the way, what looks like sensordust is migrating birds!


    Dan, I absolutely love this shot. Very well presented, too.
