Thanks! I've tweaked the reds a bit and used the "camera vivid" setting in ACR. For some scenes it does block the shadows, but it works very well for "graphic" things where you want high contrast.

Really nice Jim!
Imagine the 1st one with a little kick of orange sun in the bg
instead of the big grey space. Would be exceptional.

Took this with the 50/1.4 before I sold it to finance the 50/2. Both are great lenses in their own right.

Great series, Akul. The still waters on #1 makes it my pick, smooth glass like.

Thanks guys!

Everything I post has been tweaked to some degree.

In LR I generally apply around +35 contrast and +30 clarity. Additionally I tweak the tone curve to generally make it more aggressive, more contrast, usually compressing the shadow zones and brightening upper mid tones. Depending on the scene, I will tweak the hue and saturation of various colors. I find the M9 sometimes is too weak with blue skies and I will shift the hue to pull excessive magenta (seems to depend a lot on the lens used as well) and often also some negative luminosity of the blue setting,
...Show more

I agree on this part, the vision of the photographer and PP abilities determines the final output more than gear. More often, people get a false idea of what can be achieved using a certain gear (be it good or bad).

Anyways, here's my lowly attempt to mimic your PP style. Seriously, I think you should make your own preset and make it available for others

D700 and ZF 28 f/2 (slowly becoming my favorite over the 35)

Smridevan, frezeiss - thank you

Smridevan- gorgeous color on the flower shot
R.Young- Nice shot with 35
Lars - I quite like the bokeh. I has character
Makten - that is a gorgeous shot. Shadows on red makes this shot really stand out. Beautiful
Jim - the tree shot is very nice
Wheaty - I like the window shot
frezeiss - First one is surreal. I like it a lot.

Lars #2 is very nice.Great color and bokeh.Care to share your opinion on the 35ZE f1.4.Maybe if its worth upgrading from the 35f2ZE?

Here are a few from today.
-Jim

100MP@f2





100MP@f2.2(sometimes i shoot this lens @f2.2 to avoid the little bit of vignetting that it has WO)

Thanks Jim,
I have both the ZE 35 lenses. Yes it's worth the upgrade. And I belive you like to blur the background and play a bit with the DOF. The 35/1,4 is really great for that
