Thanks Charles!

Edward, thanks for the info, interesting, and do they send the elephants back to the farmland when they get bigger/older?

Charles, love those dreamy 1.0 shots! Beautiful!
Dale, excellent shots with the 50Lux. Nice moment captured on that 3rd shot.
wsatam, very nice abstract pattern on that shot and I agree, you can pull quite a bit of detail from the M9's shadows.
Allen, nice shot! Now to continue the experiment with birds in flight?
Michael, excellent set, the koi on the bottom right on #1 balances the composition. #2 is perfect! Nice catch with the plane.

I'll give you a gold medal for doing that with the 0.95. Excellent shot!

Not to much of a challenge for me. Birds are easy the street is tough.

Andrew, Another good set about that truck. Color is great without oversaturated.
Joe, Thanks for comment. Another nice BW shot.

Ron, I forget to thanks for your explanation of changing lens. It has been in my mind for a while that have another M body, even m8 as I donít like change lens in field (before). I thought you must have the same mind But your post make me rethink this. I get this scary for change lens from experience with recent trip in China. With two kids around, it is really awkward changing lens. Without them, it really should not be a problem. Unfortunately, I pass that bad feeling in recent trip to FL, I pretty much only use 21mm. so I miss so many opportunity. I also like the way you think in term of focal length with the same scene. That is good way to training and learning about angle of view. This time, you just save me $4000

Couldn't you have fit one more awesome thing into this picture?

The sunset shadows, texture of the cement wall and graffiti, silhouette of the surfer, even the lines in the sand work perfectly.


Joe, that's a lot of emotion in that shot!

Charles - Great portrait set! Nice counterpoint to Edward's recent Bangkok sets.
Dexter - looks good, like the hair cutting one.
WeeSin - that's some interesting architecture - looks like it's crashing down on them. Sometimes I find the adjustment brush allows for more flexibility because it doesn't require straight line transition like the grad filter does.
Allen - trading Chicago for Miami? Can't blame you, considering the time of year.
Joe - that's quite the moment - hilarious! P-town looks pretty rocking. Funny though, I never remember it being like that the few times I've been there. I guess I didn't visit the right places.
Michael - wow, very nice set and really like the sunset one a lot. Agreed about the benefit of rangefinder quick focus ability. I can see why you might be hesitant to change lenses if you're also looking after the kids. Two cameras would probably be faster. It seems my considerations are considerably different.

Catching up on photos from the big snowstorm about 10 days ago... here are some from the day after - snowdrifts...

50 Lux ASPH:











90 Summarit:





















BTW, bonus points if you can see the gatefold defect in the second to last image... I think this is a problem in all of my images, just that it's not normally visible. Once in a while I see it in uniformly dark, low light shots where I try to boost it too much... I think it appears here because some of these have had a lot of adjustments, particularly pulling the shadow values down by 2-3 stops to boost the contrast range.

Wstam, nice interesting technique. Should try that one of these days

Allen, Lovely bird shot. It's amazing it allowed to get so near.

Zhangyue, thank you for the comments. Beautiful set. My favourites are the 2 b/w shots on this page.

Joe, very funny shot and you caught the moment. I think they return the baby elephant to stay with his mom at the elephant farm every day.

Ron, Nice set. I particularly like the textured shots no. 2, 4 and 6.

Ryan, the Nocti really pops! Especially the third one.
Edward, these are great, and really like the last one. Looks like an interesting scene and potentially the basis of a small photoessay. Really enjoyed following these and those you've posted in the other thread!

Thanks guys for your comments!

Thanks again Carsten, Ryan and Ron!

Ryan, that Noctilux rendering is so special. Love the auto-portrait and the last shot!

Ron, great set once again. Love the almost monochromatic character. I think they would look very nice in high contrast b/w too.

Thanks Michael, Ryan, Charles, Ron, Edward

Michael, that's another excellent beach shot! You have a very nice series with these distant beach shots with small figures. Looking forward to more.
Ron, love those compositions with the snow. Really nice contours, lines and shadows and its hard to pick a favorite, all varied and nice in their own way. I think if you made some of these into B&W as others have suggested, you could have a desert series - almost two for one? Can't see the gate effect on that shot you mentioned.
Edward, more excellent shots, #3 and the rooster shot are my favorites, and on the link to the other set, I really like that shot with the back of the girl looking at the mangoes, has a surrealist feel to it similar to your other shot with the guard looking at the trains. Also, thanks for the info on the baby elephant and I'll definitely let you know if I get to visit Bangkok.
Ryan, cool set!

Edward - very nice set! Are you processing your images differently lately? They look spot on to my eye...

Ron - Neat snow set with very interesting lines.

Joe - funny capture and quite interesting.

Joe, Charles, Gary, thanks a lot

Joe, that's a very funny shot of your sons arm lost in a sea of pillows and bedsheets? Looks like someone is drowning. Love it. You're welcome anytime in this part of the world

Gary, nothing changed, I only decided to keep a standard WB for all the series to keep the documentary character. All shots are processed in ACR with embedded profile, WB 5500/15, contrast 15-25, and minor exposure adjustments.
