    Lloyd,
    sorry to hear about the film snaffoo. Glad to hear you got a lovely shot of the parents this time around. It's something that you are cherish, and makes a nice comparison/contrast to the long lost slide of you, mother, and sibling at sunset...

    Lovely!

    First off, I wanted to thank everyone here for such kind and supportive words (that certainly includes you guys, Lloyd, Matt, Rayyan, Steve, Kurt, Osman, Dierk, DavidE, Daniel, Jono, and so many more of you that I am forgetting). I have been amazed and thrilled by what a supportive group that we have here, and what amazing photographs are shown by you all on a daily basis.

    Second, a few more photographs from yesterday's Fremont Solistice Festival, here in Seattle....hope you enjoy! All processing solely in LR3, with M9/50 lux asph used...

    First a few in B&W:

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

    Corlan: Not modest; just realistic. Thank you, though.

    Ashwin: A very productive trip to Boston! Hard to single any out. Each has it's own sense and merits. The OOF stairs is nicely composed and balanced. Nice color shots (you must have recently discovered that the M9 did color? ). The Tai chi photos are great. Is that guy part of the group or just mimicking them? He's "one of a kind". More Steve in action! Nice tonality in the first. Well done "people" shots.

    Maggie: Nice photos of the family. Did they coordinate their outfits? Cool "bike" photo. I agree w/ Ashwin and Lloyd - can't beat LR3 for organization, utility, and image processing (w/o going into CS5).

    Lloyd: Beautiful, moody, dark photo of Mimi. Love the style, framing, and light. Mobile reflectors. Well done!

    Ashwin: Great photos form the Street fair/Solstice today. Love the juggler. I photographed that same "nope" bozo on the parade route yesterday. Think he knows who's statue he's sitting in front of? Today, i worked to make up for photographing the parade yesterday.

    sig284: Good looking dog photos!

    Vlad: Good day for the 50 lux. And, thanks for the very subtle Starbuck's ad (BTW: beautiiful color and focus). The color and light in the last two is really nice.

    Rayan: Nice lane. Very geometric with planes of color and light. Well seen.

    Cheers, Matt

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

    Thanks so much, Lloyd. I am happy to share. I have switched over the past few days to a LR3 only processing scheme. LR3 is outstanding. I will still use Nik, but haven't needed to. Here's what I do for the BW's.

    1. import M9 CR2, and use The B&W "Look 3" or "Look 4" setting. Typically, if an image is well exposed, I use "Look 3", and if underexposed a bit, "Look 4". I play around with brightness and exposure a bit to get a reasonable histogram, usually slightly left shifted.

    2. Next, I do a bit of dodging and burning to bring out a more 3D look. I jokingly call this painting with light (I come from a background of oil painting). Particularly, I try to slightly emplasize the highlights a bit, and it gives my portraits more pop. Usually use a dodge setting of 0.4 or so to do this.

    3. Next, I switch to the clarity option in the brush, and do a once over the sharp parts of the image, in this case the guy's face, to bring more subjective clarity. Sometimes I do this a couple of times , using new clarity brushes

    4. Next I use a split toning setting. I pick a yellow color for highlights, and a bluish color for shdow, but drop saturations of each split tone down to 10-15%, until I get the slightly colored look that I want.

    5. Then, I add a bit of highlight-priority vignetting, in this case -20% with a smidge of feathering, to center the image more

    6. Finally, I add grain using the new grain tone, usually grain set to 40 for amount, 10 for size, and 30 for roughness. This gives a nice structure to the grain, but prevents it from being too distracting.

    That's the nitty gritty.

    Best,

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

    Agreed with LLoyd. Pham, that portrait and your flower shots are amazing. What lens are you using? Is it an old visio lens?

    David, lovely images of the seaside as well!

    Steve, THANK you so much for the kind words!!!

    Matt, I think you should have skipped work. I managed to sneak through the festival for the few hours that it wasn't raining. It was, per usual Seattle fare, a hoot and a scene! Good stuff....missed the actual parade, though...alas...

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

    By the way, here's why I like LR so much...a before and after...

    The original image may have as well been a throw away. The revised version ended up with a bit of pop. Some may argue about the pros and cons of digital post-processing. I suspect you may be able to figure out what camp that I am in

    Yes Matt, the Scottish East Coast fishing villages used to trade a lot with the low countries and there are strong similarities in language between Scots and Dutch.

    Thanks, I am very impressed with this lens, the sharpness at 100% is amazing, right out to the corners (of the M8), you cannot really tell how good it is from these web reduced photos.

    Ashwin: You're right. I should have. I did get the parade (w/D3s and a Leica DL-4) (Parental Warning!): http://mdriscoll.zenfolio.com/p227269964. It ran right by my office for about 3 hrs. Couldn't leave if i wanted to. My car was blocked in.

    Ashwin: What a joy to see excellent work. The moments captured.

    I like the first one for its understated elegance.
