    Recent trip to India and Nepal

    Hi!
    Just finished editing nearly 2,000 shots and thought I'd share a few. Leica M8 with Tri-elmars, 16-18-21 and 28-35-50, and 90/2.8.
    Best,
    Osman

    Thanks Kurt, first of those was shot in the courtyard of Taj Mahal and the second in Patan, Nepal.

    Thanks Helen. It is so motivating to be appreciated.
    I tried to master the art of shooting from moving vehicles on this trip, but in spite of the stability of the M8, my f/4 lenses did not help much. I am looking for a faster 28 or 35mm lens for better results. By the way, the third shot was taken from a bus travelling at 10mph on a bumpy road.
    A happy new year to everyone,
    Osman

    Very nice series indeed -- thanks for posting it! While they are all very good images, the first is my favorite

    Re: Recent trip to India and Nepal

    Thanks Jack, your words are most heartening. I acquired a second-hand M8 a few months ago and am still learning how to use it properly. It was not an easy decision to choose it for my long-awaited India trip; I was planning to take D300 and SLR/n with me. I'm glad now that I did otherwise.
    Kind regards,
    Osman
