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

    Ashwin - two great shots posted. I really like the first one 'Drawing to a Close'

    Matt - great shots from a place I would love to visit one day. That lens is definitely on my 'dream' list

    rizz48 - great shot with the DR. Now, I thought the DR wasn't useable with the M8? Did you have to get it modified or does it just work?

    There is an old abandoned hospital near the large park in downtown Savannah. It has been abandoned for over 20 yrs and it definitely shows. I love the look of the exterior but finally got a chance to walk in the other day when I saw that someone else had broken a window (shh!). I am not going to show the entire series...there is a ton of photos...but here are a few......all taken with the 35 Cron

    M9, 35mm Summilux ASPH, pre-focused to about 1.2 meters, hip-shot.

    I grabbed this photo a couple days ago as a dog approached me with a very deliberate stride. Luckily, it turns out he was just curious about me.

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

    Haven't had much time to shoot 'for me' since I got a full time shooting job using *shudder* canon 500D + 10-22mm. I always thought that the 10-22 was meant to be good but the softness (below f/8) and fringing (at all apertures) is horrid!

    Anyway, two happy snaps at my friend's birthday (he's the elder child in red). 50mm Sonnar @ f/2.8 (mine is 1.5 optimised)




    Wow these definitely pop more on my wide gamut monitor than my older LCD (which are side by side).

    Daniel...

    great stuff. I totally know what you mean. I have an Apple 20" LCD parked next to my 27" iMac. HUGE difference. But that works to your advantage when editing for web photos. It's a good second check since most people don't have high end monitors when viewing photos.

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

    Wow, wow, wow! We're rockin' and rollin' on the thread the last couple of days. Amazing work everyone.

    Ashwin: "Drawing to a close" and "Heading off into the distance" are terrific.
    Otto: Again, welcome to the forum. Glad you were able to sort out my instructions, the large image looks great. I for one will not be getting tired of the shots of your daughter. Excellent work.
    Matt: More nice shots from Hawaii. Love the scene from the Hotel, great view. I'm impressed you got close enough to that parrot to take that shot with the 24mm! Those guys can take off a finger in a heartbeat!
    Ryan: I may have commented before, but I'm enjoying your street shots. Very nice.
    Dan: Love how that 24 renders. Thanks for sharing.
    Rizz48: That's a terrific shot with the 50DR. Great first post, glad to have you join the fun.
    Ryan: The abandoned hospital series is terrific, top to bottom. I especially like the green paint shot.
    Seattle Steve: Amazing "hip shot'. Really like the second shot too... wonderful depth, and really nice b/w tonalities.
    Daniel: Looks like your friend had a nice birthday celebration. Thanks for sharing those great pix.
    Jason: Those flower shop shots are stunners!! What are you shooting there? Doesn't look like your 40/1.4
    Charles: More terrific stuff from Thailand. That last one is priceless.

    Great thread, and great photos guys.

    I'm primarily a landscape photographer, but I've been experimenting lately with more graphically expressive shots with an emphasis on simplified forms, colors and textures captured in an urban environment. So my first post here isn't really representative of my usual stuff.

    Mostly 90/2 Cron (pre-ASPH), as it's my newest lens, but there's a 35 Lux ASPH and a 75 Cron in there as well:

    Thanks Lloyd, Ashwin and Charles

    ----------
    So many nice pics posted since last night:

    Ashwin, you keep raising the ante! What else do you have in the vault?
    Two superb shots, both wonderful composition and light, but that first one, man, awesome with the "shape" of the person! I'm convinced that there must be some HCB blood in your veins.

    Matt, wonderful pics of Hawaii, I like how you managed to get some bokeh out of a 24mm lens on that parrot shot

    rizz48, welcome and nice work with the 50CronDR. Classic lens and rendering!

    Ryan, wonderful set, very nice colors and detail. #5 & 9 are my favorites of this set.

    Steven, very nice "hip" shot!

    Daniel, nice to see you back here, nice happy snaps! I'm quite sure you'll appreciate the M9 even more after shooting the 500D?

    Jason, nice set, like the last shot best!

    Charles, you make my 35Lux ASPH v1 seems soft Excellent set as always! Really like your color pp work.

    Luka, great to see you here. I'm sure you'll enjoy this thread. Stunning work as always!

    Steven - good work with the Lux. The 2nd shot shows the excellent rendering

    Daniel - great work with the 50 Sonnar....great job nailing focus at f/2.8 when optimized the opposite way. Especially #1!

    Jason - very nice work at the florist. Great colors

    Charles - those 35 Lux shots are amazing! Especially #2 & #3

    Luka.....just when we thought we got rid of you you found us Great shots! This thread is far more active than the 4 of us being the only posters on the other

    Everyone - this page of the thread is wonderful in that there aren't twenty copies of each photo in the replies. One can scroll through, see each photo once, and read the comments on it. Hope we can keep that up!

    Ashwin, that is pretty much experimental photography for me. I usually shoot traditional landscapes. I really enjoyed your Egypt series that you posted a while ago and it contributed to me not bringing a DSLR when I went there myself.

    ornamental cherry tree in bloom. Best I can do with 90 cron at this subject. MFD knocks you down from close up photogrpahy, other than cropping.

    Welcome Luka on the forum!
    I did subscribe Fredmiranda M photos thread mostly due to your photos - since your trip to Egypt.

    It is nice to see you posting here as well

    Unfortunately there is one very distracting behaviour - people do repeat and repeat and repeat pictures in comments

    Holy smokes, Luka, these are amazing. I am so thrilled that my Egypt photos served as inspiration to trust the M9 for this type of work. And wow, you brought back some gems. Lovely images all around, and so crisp! I love your style!

    Ashwin, you keep raising the ante! What else do you have in the vault?
    Two superb shots, both wonderful composition and light, but that first one, man, awesome with the "shape" of the person! I'm convinced that there must be some HCB blood in your veins.

    Joe, you are way too kind. HCB is sort of my personal photo hero, along with Capa and a few others...to be even mentioned at all in the same sentence makes me blush...you are too kind, but you have nailed it on the head that in my dreams, I wish I were HCB....

    Thanks to everyone for their kind words (Steve, Lloyd, Matt, Charles, Luka, Joe, Endre, Ceh, and others whom I have missed....). The game has been continuously stepped up here, as witnessed by so many wonderfully talented new additions to our Leica forum photo thread. Keep up the great work, everyone. I am impressed and inspired!

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

    A few more from my journeys. I am nearing the end of my photos from India. The vault is nearly empty, thoughly shaken, turned upside down & whatnot, so we'll see if there's anything left inside:









    Can't recall whether I posted these ones...

    Steve: Thanks! That lagoon is there so you don't have to be bothered by the Ocean waves (actually a pretty safe place for kids).
    Rizz: Cool! Great isolation and composition.
    Rsolti: Thanks. It is a nice place to visit.
    Great photos from the abandoned hospital. My favorite kind of place. Excellent pp, composition, and range of images. #'s 1 and 9 are my favorites.
    Steven: Really nice "hip shot"!
    Daniel: Work can get in the way. Fun birthday shots.
    Jason: I really like the rose closeup and the two women examining the bouquet. All have super IQ.
    Charles: Nice range of portraits. The positioning of the two men and the boy in the first image and the focus works really well. The man in back is just soft enough to bring attention back to two in front.
    Lloyd: Thanks! The bird was well trained to deal with everybody walking by (probably sedated?).
    Charles: Thanks! My favorite, too.

    I just look forward to open the last page of this thread every morning and drop my jaw. A couple of my recent favs:

    Mostly 90/2 Cron (pre-ASPH), as it's my newest lens, but there's a 35 Lux ASPH and a 75 Cron in there as well:

    Wow folks, there's some truly excellent work here this week.

    Luka - very impressive. That's a great look that you have going there. Very nice.

They have strong lines and are elegantly composed with a limited number of "main" elements (3-4) in a discernible order. Beautiful, natural, color. IMHO, of course.

    Ashwin: Don't you have a day job. Or, is it the inch of rain in 10 mins. that fell today keeping you at the computer.
    As usual, these are brilliant! I love what you captured in these three. Exquisitely timed and masterfully composed.
