Thanks Gary and thanks Ron!
Ron, in the third photo it looks like you're doing an engagement shoot for the asian couple. Nice shots BTW..
Haha, interesting you picked up on that... I was in fact photographing them... They're friends and recently married and my GF volunteered me to do some 'couple' photos of to send back to their families.

More nice pics Ron. The warm light looks great in these photo's. I will be in Munich in December so I may have to check out that spot...
Definitely check it out Gary - it's only a 10 minute walk from the Leica Store. Be sure to clear some space on your credit card for a lens or two. http://www.leica-store-muenchen.de/en/photography/photography/kategorie/m-objektive.html Seriously though, with the full VAT refund (PM me for details), it will be in the range of 15-20% below USA/Canada pricing.
Great set and especially love the rendering in the first image. Still can't believe you have snow...
Thanks Michael and Charles!
Doug - I can definitely find banding in ISO 160 images, but typically only when lifting the shadows considerably, though I have also had a few images where it didn't take much to reveal the banding. I still believe the incidence of banding is directly related to the number of images in the buffer and how quickly the images were captured, how 'hard' the camera is working to clear the buffer and whether one is reviewing images while the buffer is clearing. I've done a few tests around these suspicions and can always generate banding by filling the buffer and reviewing images on the camera's display at the same time, therefore I avoid reviewing images until the buffer is clear. Yet, that doesn't completely eliminate banding, at least for me.
Again, the Munich skyline from the Monopteros, but a day later than the previous ones. This one was kind of interesting because a bank of fog was moving in from the east towards the sunset.
