    I love that second (Jono's...) Brighton Pier shot. From your gallery, I also really liked the half water-half sky image, and a couple of others. In general I find the colours very attractive from these shots. Have you done much PP or is this just Leica's colouring?

    Thank you Carsten.

    I'm lazy with colours unless its for a real print for fine art sale so I've not done much at all. Most of the shots were developed using my own generic home brewed profile in LR3 made using an Xrite Passport. The half sea/half sky shot was just 'Auto Everything' in LR, which works really well with those types of shots if you want drama The Brighton pier required a re-WB and a bit of fill light on the white bits of the pier, plus a very gentle graduated exposure reduction filter to the sky, but no particular colour work. Do bear in mind though that these are sRGB. A large print of that shot looks quite nice!

    Re: An ongoing, real-world S2 gallery

    Tried an S2 today and thought I would share these...

    Shot just over 100 frames and this red band began showing up around frame 105. The third image was shot in the same sequence and didn't have the band. Why would this appear in some images and not others?

    Since it's a "real world" thread, I hope this isn't something new for the viewers here but this looks to be a major sensor issue.

    Thoughts?

    I once had a thin red line at the edge of a DSLR in Capture One (3.7x) and then it was software related. But it was apparent in every capture and a software update fixed it.

    These were RAW files processed in Lightroom 2.6.

    In this case I don't think it's software related as Lightroom, AFAIK, does not crop; i.e. takes all sensor pixels into account.

    It's also not the very very edge either looks to have a couple pixel rows of real data before the edge. Weird that it is different colors as well. Hmmm

    Re: An ongoing, real-world S2 gallery

    Just processed thru Aperture and NO BAND!

    Looks like it's not a sensor issue after all, just a RAW software processing problem (from an S2 point of view).

    Interesting thing is that the file appears to have been damaged by Lightroom 2.6 as when I try to open in Capture One 5, the band is present in the DNG file.

    Go figure...

    BTW, the Aperture processed file was a fresh import from the CF card not the DNG imported from Lightroom.

    I think Guy has sworn off LR; changes the raw!

    Also could be the card BTW (see other threads, esp on edge banding)

    I'm not a fan of anything that changes a Raw file. It is Raw and should remain raw for life
