Jako and Gregg - the lux's do look good stopped down
Michael - the crepuscular rays are excellent

A walk yesterday on the Malvern Hills, Herefordshire/Worcestershire county boundary, the hills are an elevated suite of Precambrian plutonic and volcanic rocks, with a complex geological history of metamorphism, faulting and folding. More importantly the bedrock is close to the surface, so, for winter 2013/14 in the UK, there's also the novelty of being able to walk on solid ground.








Sunshine and clearing rain - 21-35/3.5-4







100% crop - the Church 7.5 to 8km distant 180/3.4







Flooding - 180/3.4

Sunrise at Huangshan, China with 80-200mm Leica R and A7

Wow. Super shot!

Took the others out for a spin this evening at the local lake.

One with the 24/2.8. Had to correct some obvious distortion in this one.

The rest with the 75-200/4.5. This was my first time using a one touch lens. Found it quite good. Although not that well balanced with the A7 hand held. Possibly it would be better with the grip and obviously with more practise.

Jon...very detailed crop..I like the image, too
cams884...I like the dock shot, and the sideways swimmers, and the last duck, too!
Alex...who turned on the "sun" spotlight for you? Beautiful colors!

And a few today, with the 90 Cron...
Thanks for looking,
Gregg

Thank you everyone for the comments and the likes on the Santa Monica sunset shots.

Michael -- The sunrise at Huangshan shot is breathtaking. When I was little I always wondered whether those Chinese watercolor paintings of mountains are for real. Your picture proves they actually exist. Thanks for sharing.

Gregg -- You are making the 90 Cron sing... First shot of Gio on page 90 is my favorite because the catch light is more pronounced. Keep 'em coming...

mmacro -- Your 35 lux abstract shot is stunning. Nicely done. I also enjoyed the 2-headed cow shot.

robin bush -- You continue to impress us with the 28 v2 Elmarit. Beautiful seascape shot as always...

Worldinlens -- Love your HDR shot -- tastefully done. Also, the train station shots are excellent as well. The colors from the Fuji cam are so pleasing and "effortless".

LtZ -- Your shot of the violinist reminded me of a similar shot I took a couple of weeks ago -- same hand and smiling. I will post it later and dedicate that shot especially to you.

Samy -- Very nice of you to stop by here every so often and commenting and posting likes. We really appreciate it!

lenticular11 - Nice shot of the raven. Do you still use your Contax N lenses?

cams884 -- Welcome aboard. Your grandmother has good tastes for nice optics! I occasionally still enjoy shooting with the R3 and R5 cams.

Tri Tran -- Thank you for starting this wonderful thread. Nice floral pics from the 100 APO.

Jon -- Beautiful images from the Isle of Skye and from the rainbow series. The dry spell continues as local officials are now imposing a new law to only limit watering of lawns 3 times a week. FYI. Watering lawns alone accounts for about 40 percent of total usage in this part of the country.

Jack -- Impressive performance from the Lux 80 when stopping down. Thanks for sharing.

Here are a few from my visit to Stanford U over the weekend. For this series, I changed things up a little -- opted to use Camera Vivid and black borders instead of Adobe Standard and white. Thanks for looking...

50 Lux E55...

Kokusai...stunning archway images! The first and third area favs! Really like how the shadows play in the first. You mention vivid, and borders? Is that in camera? Or in post?
I take it you had a safe trip up here and back?! Look forward to more from Stanford!

kokusa, that place looks familiar Great archway shots and nicely composed.

Alex, love the colors and light on your hdr flower pic. Beautiful !

Gregg, great pics with the 90 cron. Soft and dreamy while still being sharp, if that makes sense. Love the rendering.

Jack, the lux sure looks very good even stopped down. I'm torn between the lux 80 and the cron 90. I'd love both but it will also mean the end of my marriage.

Milkman, with M240, I think it makes sense to take advantage of high class RF wide than R or Minolta. I can think of 21SEM, 24SE, 18SEM, 28cron, Zeiss biogon21, biogon25 are all top glass with comparable or lower price than R.
With M240, the only R lens I would recommend over M: 100APO, 80-200(flexibility and size), 280APOf4, 180APOf2.8. 105-280(flexibility and reach)

Jon, I am drawing into your first one.

Jack, indeed 80lux is a versatile lens that has two characters in one.

Greg, the two flower shots from 90cron are very impressive. Are they WO. I can't help thinking that How I can achieve this kind of bokeh at the same time with POP with 80lux at this range. might need shoot at f2? I am not sure actually…

Kokusai, Very familiar place you have very nice control on tone, shadow and geometry. Well done.

Manu, after seeing many fine samples from Greg, I think 90cron is great, especially considering more affordable price, but it seems overlap your 100APO range.

Thank you for your really nice comment. And you are right that the scenery matched Chinese traditional art form and culture. I am big fan of Chinese brush painting. Huangshan is the most beautiful mountain in China and maybe one of most beautiful mountains in the world. Many photographers spend month there to get the light they want, and some visit there multiple time to catch the season. I wasn’t lucky enough to have more interesting lighting other than maybe 10min sunrise 2nd day morning. And by noon time, I need go down. I’d much prefer spend whole week there.
But I highly recommend the place to FMers who visit China.

80-200 with A7 Huangshan, this was taken at noon time I was struggled with the hash lighting and haze but like the frame.

Great imagery everyone. I enjoy something about every photo on this page, which appropriately kicks off with a beautiful sunrise.

And Alex, thank you for showing me something new today.

All -- Thanks for the comments and the likes...

Gregg - Yes. It was done in post -- ACR for the color profile and border in Photoshop. As usual, my family and I had a great time there. Thanks for asking. BTW, I started my career there in the early 90's before moving to Southern Cali. I do miss the Bay Area ...

Michael - Hope to visit Huangshan in the near future. Thanks for detailing your journey there and the recommendations...

A couple from Crissy Field, San Francisco. The light was changing fast and I was delighted to capture the pink and purple skies...
