    Well, not getting your M9 is a mistake Gero, it is everything the M8 should have been just a couple years and a couple thousand bucks later. But you've got some EXCELLENT DMR images my friend, so should post some for the others to see. Your subjects are very unique.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Thanks Chuck, I have been more ambitious with my photographic project than what I have been able to give. Still, I have hope that it is in the middle and that I will be able to get there in the end.

    I will also try to post images to get reactions.

    Doug:

    I'll match your bird picture, with a Bird Dog shot. Actually, our 14 year old Labrador. She was trained for hunting and retrieving, but we didn't actually hunt with her. Shot with the DMR and 35-70mm f2.8.

    Anna's Hummingbird

    This one is from June and is the only time I attempted to photograph the local Anna's at home in Bodega Bay. The birds were very skittish and an 800mm equivalent focal length was needed to get close enough.

    This was the dominant male on the property. I named him "the office worker" as he hid out in a dilapidated shed out back, clicked away like he was typing and terrorized any visitor to "his" feeder. Shot was taken as darkness approached.

    My one regret with the passing of Kodachrome at year's end is never having photographed hummingbirds with Kodachrome. Having just discovered 17 rolls of KM 25 buried deep in the freezer... the mission for tomorrow is to attempt to record a few good images on my favorite film of all time. It will require overnighting the film to Dwayne's in Kansas but it will be my final homage to a film I'll miss terribly.

    The first Anna appeared just this afternoon at my new residence in Kenwood and he seemed both surprised and elated to find a feeder where none had been before. Forecast for tomorrow is an 80% chance of rain... but that never stopped a hummingbird!

    I love being able to use "short" lenses on wildlife! This is an immature Black-crowned Night Heron, BTW.

    Doug:

    Thanks much for identifying the Heron. The closet we could find on the net when we saw the bird was an immature green heron. Glad to finally know what it was. Here is a pic with the neck extended, and thanks again. Love the DMR by the way. Going on 6 years with it. Had some damage to the unit last year and Leica did a great job with the repairs. Now if I could just find some additional battery units for it.

    Continuing with the Ardeidae theme, North America's smallest heron, the Least Bittern:



    Lighting was harsh but I was able to expose for the highlights and pull up the shadows. R8/DMR, 280mm f/4 APO, shoulder stock & monopod, knee pads. Should have had elbow pads too. Belly padding not missed.

    More Ardeidae: the local fish hatchery has a very cooperative Great Blue Heron but I've been struggling with lighting and backgrounds. I'm trying to illustrate the heron's motionless hunting posture, so I used a tripod , the camera's base ISO and stopped down enough to use a 1/2 second shutter speed:

    I wonder how this would have looked with a polarizing filter so that you had no reflection off the water and consequently a darker background. I do appreciate the smoke-like affect of the long exposure on the water. It is a great image.

    A polarizing filter for the 280 APO is on my wish list.

    Doug:

    Which Polarizer does it use? I might have one here that fits it. I think I have the Series 5.5 and Series 6 in the special drawers that I bought when I happened to see them for sale. I have not used either since I got them.

    Just checked the camera cabinet, I have 13338 (ser 5.5) and 13340 (ser 6).

    Wow, thats really an impressive image. I wouldent believe they stand that still.

    ANd the color and tonality just great.
    It is really a shame they didnt continue the DMR/R.

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    An Eagle on the lake we live on seems to have caught what looks like a duck for lunch. While not up to Doug's standards, I figured I would post it. The last time we saw an eagle on the ice, I barely made it out my back door before he flew off. In this case I made it to the edge of the lake and shot with the 400mm and a 2x APO extender. Cropped in about 50% as well. It is raining a bit too, which kills the contrast at such distances.

    yesterday in lower Manhattan, the New Museum on Bowery and Prince.
    The pattern / texture of the building facade played havoc with my dmr sensor,

    Re: DMR Image Thread

    Spring finally came in town (northern New Jersey);

    I take the R9-DMR most of the time as walk-around camera when there are reasonable light levels and I want accurate framing and colors.

    The last image shows the contrast between the way we build houses today and what was built 100 years ago...
