#10 the couple kissing with the lady waving in the b/g
#11 & #12

but all are very nice.

Again HAPPY NEW YEAR ONE AND ALL....

Ron, That is an incredible BW set. I really enjoy them.
Joe, Nice family set, Always enjoy nice art family pics. I especially like #1 and last one.

I need add some color to this thread Some from today. After a whole day at San Francisco Zoo, My kids are tired and get sleep in the car. I get lucky, have half hour walk by myself on the ocean beach. What a beautiful sunset. Hope you guys enjoy them.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Ron, great documentary set that told a story very well.
Joe, I think the blown highlights works except for #3. Oh, I must add that he looks like a little devil in the last photo
Michael, I like the second one and how you used the concrete walls to pick up the light.

Michael, I really like the second one!

Joe: These look good, though I'm personally not a fan of blowing out whites in-camera, but that's just me.
The SEM works OK indoors, similar to the ZM21 as it's only about half a stop slower. The lights in the newsroom are fairly bright - ISO 640 1/45 @ f/3.4. About the only thing I think I did differently with the B&W set was with many I pulled the shadow slider into negative territory to darken the deep shadows even more.

So we ventured out to downtown Toronto to check out the New Year show... actually, couldn't see much of the show and the sound of the performances echoed off all the buildings around City Hall... so it was mostly just to say 'we were there' and to see a few fireworks, which honestly, weren't so impressive. It was suggested we go to Niagara Falls to see Nelly Furtado perform - it probably would have been the better choice. As many NFL teams are saying after Sunday's regular season final games... there's always next year!

A few from Toronto with the 21 Lux.... I decided to shoot at ISO 160 for some of these and braced the camera against a lamp pole. It worked out OK for 1/8 or 1/6 @ f/1.4:

















And 70cm minimum focusing distance with the 21 Lux is juuust about how far I can stretch out and still hold the camera in one hand for a self portrait.

Ron, cool self portrait.

Two with the 50 Lux from this afternoon, the sun was there but with a big diffusor cloud in front of it so there was hardly any shadows.

Michael - nice pics. I really like how you maintain the shadows and dark tones in your pics.

Ron - nice snaps and it looks like a lot of fun. Good to finally see a picture of you! Wy wife an I managed to stay up until midnight which was an accomplishment seeing how we were tired from skiing all day.

Happy New Year everyone! I truly enjoy the people and pics on this thread.

Thanks guys.

Joakim - the light does look great and the second one in particular has a very nice mood. But... what happened to all the snow you guys had?

vovkinson - All the images were hand-held, but that one wasn't braced against a pole, so I bumped up the ISO to 1250 to get a reasonable shutter speed. Perhaps I could have tried Dan's (thrice) recent technique and left it at ISO 160, underexpose by three stops, then recovered in post. Anyway, we were there more really to look than do a serious photo project, therefore the tripod didn't come along. The spot where we were standing had a street light nearby, but it was about a stop darker than the city hall building in the background. For the 'portraits' the brush in Lightroom was used to boost the foreground exposure between 1-1.5 stops, along with some contrast, shadow and clarity tweaks to reduce the harshness of the light.

Gary - very nice, and an interesting location. The 21SEM sure is an impressive lens.

These are great... even if the first isn't a Leica photo ;-).

My Leica funds sadly took a big dent over x-mas. I came down with flu-like symptoms for nearly two weeks and missed a couple of jobs, which were pretty important financially. So the beginning of 2013 will start with a huge bag of rice and an empty Leica jar by the looks of it . On a not so unrelated note (as they seem to be discussed together on FM for some reason) Santa did bring me a nice watch .

I look forward to eyeing your 2013 Leica photos for many, many months w/o one of my own ;-)

Sorry to hear you were sick. The Mrs was sick the entire holiday from a few days before Christmas to just now starting to get better. I might be loosing a big client (using a different agency) in 2013. I hope not becuse the work was always exciting and interesting and I really need them. I hope that you have a wonderful 2013 even though its getting off to a bumpy start.

Thanks for comments, all.
Ron, Nice night set, this is the first time I see you in the picture. 21 lux might be the only lens can do this for low light and DOF and Wide angle
Gary, Nice winter set, my favorite is last one.
Joakim, 2nd one has nice feel!

Here are two from 90Elmarit from New year weekend!

zhangyue,
How does it feel focusing 90mm lens? Did you use any magnifiers?

I don't use magnifier, and I don't feel comfortable with 90mm on RF as well

This case, they are at close distance, and I know at this distance, usually when I focus from close to infinity give me higher keeper rate for my 90Elmarit by test.

For long distance, it is a hit and miss, especially at f2.8. I am sure I can compensate as well with some investigation. But I never did it since I don't use 90 a lot. it is definitely worth to test it at infinity if use 90mm a lot.
