Great set Ron. I like 1 and 4 in particular. I also think that 4 gives a quintessential Leica look.

Sorry Thrice - I missed your Organ Pipes photos before. They certainly show the qualities of that lens.
BTW, the columnar formations are the same as the famous Giant's Causeway in N Ireland (my birthplace) and Fingal's Cave on the Island of Staffa in the Hebrides (hexagonal columns caused by symmetric cooling of the basalt lava).

Joe, fascinating composition of lines and shapes!!
Joakim, beautiful winter scenes
Ryan, excellent silhouette image.
Dan, very nice shots with the 21 SEM.

Thanks for the comments Ryan, Charles and Ron.

Dan, very nice set with the 21 SEM. I saw the same kind of rocks in Iceland but minus the vegetation, do you guys have any active volcanoes because I think I have never heard of it?

Ron, very nice set. #1 is a favorite and I also like the second half of the set with the ropes. I'm a little thorn when it comes to my 90 Elmarit, on one side I think it is hard as it is to focus it properly at 2.8 on my M9 on the other side I would like to have something faster for better subject isolation.

Ryan, very nice silhouette image.

Here is one more from yesterday, this time with 24 Elmar.

Thanks Joakim, Ryan, Ron, Charles, Allen

Joakim, agree with Ron, the selective focus with the 50Lux works very well in these compositions, especially like #2 & 3 the best. Hope your 28Cron comes home soon Just curious, on the 24Elmar shot, what is that shed on wheels for, a summer barn?
Ryan, an excellent silhouette shot with the 35Cron!
Daniel, very nice and sharp pics with the 21SEM.
Ron, superb series at the docks! Where or how do you find all these angles and diagonals? . #1 with the 50Lux is perfect - the detailed placement on the buildings on the left background and also the precise placement of the bollard on the bottom right, just enough separation from the edges, love it.
Allen, another excellent street set! I especially like the juxtaposition on the non smoking sign and smoker shot, and looks like your reflection in the background?

M9 CV 35/2.5, probably the last few pics left from this set. Rest of pics posted earlier on this thread and can also be found here http://www.flickr.com/photos/maximumjoe/sets/72157632778417979/

Echoing Ron's comment and others elsewhere, all of the major M9 problems wrecked havoc for me on during this shoot, I had a corrupted SansDisk Ultra card (brand new and on LUF recommended list and I also tested a few time prior), major issues with sensor dust trying to get rid of the dust spots on the sky (and I'm not even a landscape photographer), and worse of all, the buffer sucked big time, I shoot single shots but when a scene unfolds, I missed quite a few moments when the buffer was too slow to clear, worse of all, I could not predict how long it will take for it to clear. Rant, aside, I still love my rangefinders

BTW, careful when you scroll to the last pic (#4), might be NSFW.

Thanks. In #2 I couldn't believe what i was seeing with the face in the window and when the lady on the left lifted her hand and pointed is was pointing at the lady in the window looking at me. I saw it shot and prayed that the lady in the window had her eyes open when the shutter clicked.

Dan - looks like a really interesting place to shoot. Nice natural lines... Great to see you posting pics again.

Ron - what a nice set! Looks like you had some good light in those. Nice textures too.

Joe - you captured the party atmosphere well in those!

Ron, the 28 Cron shot is my favourite, I like being able to associate the ropes with their individual shadows, but still a decent amount of separation between the 2.

joakim, what is that building? I'd say heated outhouse if it wasn't on wheels.

airfrogusmc, love the dark negative space on the first

Joe, subject matter is questionable, but everything else is spot on!

MM + Noct wide open. "Mr Grouper" toy on top of the lens to ensure his attention:

Thanks Joe.

I'm not sure what the hut is but since it seems to be a stove inside I reckon it's used for warming up between shifts either when working in the forest or more likely when out hunting.

Very good b&w work in that set.

Doug - not boring at all. In fact, very informative. There is a slight difference, but definitely for the better. And something to keep in mind. For me though, it would be extremely difficult to give up EXIF focal length info. I change lenses quite frequently and would likely forget which shots were with which lens. Would have been nice if Leica allowed the camera to read the coding for EXIF but disable corrections. But this seems to be the best solution for the ISO-less method.



Glad it was useful. I'm noticing that, even though the M9 does adjust vignetting correction as the ISO goes up, it isn't a dramatic difference, and it still causes weird edge issues, even when raising camera ISO, so I think it's useful whether you shoot "ISO-less" or not.

I do have a handy trick to identify each lens without EXIF. I assign each of my lenses with a number, and, immediately after changing a lens, I take a quick throwaway shot of the lens' number using my fingers. So, when viewing my pics in LR, I know when each lens change happens. In other words, when I shot more lenses, my 28/2.8 was a "one," 35/2 was a "two," 50/2 was "three," etc.

And there is a reflection of someone over that woman in the window, giving her a somewhat cartoonish appearance of having a very big head on a small body.

I also like the ghostly reflection in the glass of the door near the engagement couple photo-shoot. But these are all really good! While wandering around that area of Chicago I always felt quite obvious. NYC generally feels busier and more crowded to me, where one blends in with the bustle on the street, and therefore less obvious.

Joakim - Sounds like the 90AA and M240 might be the solution. Nice rendering of the hut-on-wheels.
Joe, great continuation of the set. Looks like it was a very productive event. Agreed about your B&W technique!
Very nice, Ryan!
Doug - good points!

Thanks guys. Some more with the ship and ropes:

Joe, The one in pre-pg is wonderful image. Nice composition. P-town images also fantastic. shooting angle adding dynamic and dominance.
Joakim, nice snow scenes
Ryan, Nice lighting on 35cron image and spot on focus on 0.95.
Dan, very nice color with the 21 SEM. a lens I am lust for.
Airfrog, #1,2 are stand out.
Ron, Both ship and rope set are nice. My favorite out of both set are #1 from 50lux and 21lux.

some from Savannah

Thanks Allen, Gary, Ryan, Ron, Michael

Ryan, perfect example of the 0.95 put to good use! Love it and what an adorable child!
Ron, wow, I probably would have walked off the scene if I had as many keepers as your first set. The 1st shot with the 21Lux and the 4 & 5 are my favorites, again superb! Next time I'm up in Toronto/Missisauga for work, would be great if we could meet up for some Tim Hortons and pick your camera knowledge.
Michael, nice set, I like the texture of the cobblestones on #2 and how it leads to the person in the background.
Jabberwockt, very nice with the ZM50. I hope he got this hand out of the bucket in time!

.. and from the reflection of your footsteps, it looked like you didn't stop to shoot? Now, that is what I call a fast street shooter I missed the details on your 2nd shot the first time round, good timing and catch!

We had some snow today in Boston. All M9 35Lux FLE.






















Exif on #3 should be f/1.4. All shots were f/1.4.

Thanks guys.

Joe - these are adorable shots of your son! Also brings back memories of playing in the snow with toys... Thanks for the comment - it was moments before sunset and the light was just great, and all those ropes were leading to multiple compositional options. I actually had to cull quite a few I liked, but were very similar just to keep it from getting more repetitive than it already is here. Don't want to bore you guys. Funny thing is, just after the sun set, a couple other photographers swept through the area, photographing details of the ship in a great hurry (it was windy and very cold)... probably not aware of the great light they just missed (though were probably photographing elsewhere moments earlier).
Jabberwockt - very clean looking. And what's happening in the scene?
Michael - the second has some interesting details.
