Winston - very nice, and a spot I'm quite familiar with. Did you go across Odeonsplatz and visit the Leica store?



Thanks Ron - actually I went to the residenz after I took my 50 Cron at the leica store

Ron, nice set, other than first two, the trees shots are even more like Sigma files in my eyes, what is your recipes?

50lux from Savanah at night I barely can focus.

ISO640 and push another two stop in LR4

Thank you Winston for your comment! Very nice b/w conversion with the buildings and boats shot.

Joakim, fantastic winterscapes. 1 and 2 are my favourites.

Ron, thank you for your comments as well! Very nice post-snowstorm set. I really like 2, 3 and 6. From the during the storm set, my favourites are 1, 2 and 4.

Zhangyue, love your son's portrait on page 651 and the black musician shot on this page.

Too many awesome shots to comment on all I'm jealous of the people that get snow, I'm not a fan of cold weather, but I would enjoy some snow every so often!

Going to pick up a ZM 50/2 and a M6 to pair with the M9/35 combo when I head home for 3 days in late March. Will will visit Hong Kong on the way back to the Philippines during my vacation, so looking forward to shooting there.

I can't get out and shoot during this work trip, so going through some older shots.

I just got a SOOKY-M adapter for my 50 Summicron collapsible, and it's a pretty cool little gadget. It's basically a set of googles, similar to the dual range summicron, and it allows me to mount my collapsible (or the front section of a rigid, if you have one) in order to focus all the way down to around 16"-17".

Here's a quick test shot at about 16", just to get a vibe on it. This was at f4, and you might be able to see that the center is pretty sharp. I probably won't use it often, but it's a cool option to have for occasional short mfd work. I haven't tested the long end, yet, but I think it goes out to about 3 feet, so maybe the total range is around 16"-36"ish.

Ron I just got my Series 8 ND filter from BH!

On a related note, a 60mm B+W F-pro filter can be used as a decent substitute with the 21 Lux. I tried it out with the red filter that I use with my Noct. No vignetting at MFD or infinity, at 1.4 and f8. Hood still screws perfectly on as well.

Thanks Michael - love the mood of your night images. Regarding the 'Sigma look' it would be using extreme clarity and also pulling back on the shadow slider to block up the shadow values. For some areas of the snow, where I wanted to exaggerate the texture and make subtle shadow values more prominent, it was a matter of brushing on a +100 clarity and -100 shadows adjustment.
Allen - great work in both sets!
Andrew - always interesting to see what 'the other guy' shot during a walk, and you came away with some great angles from that installation. I love the look of the Nikkor in the first one and the Voigtlander also looks great. Just reinforces my belief that it's a great value.
Justin - very nice and great tonality. Nice to see such a positive reaction as well.
Dpedraza - yes, please do!
Doug - wow, that's a handy thing to have... seems like another reason to pick up a 50 DR...
xpr.108 - excellent!
Ryan - thanks for the info... I was wondering about the 60mm - thanks for confirming this! I paid a visit to the local store and tried to do the same with 62mm filters but they were about 1mm too wide and 58mm was too narrow. Good to know there are options beyond the limitations of Series 8.

Some more snow...

Everything was going great until I did these looking up...

28 Cron:






50 Lux ASPH:











Notice those two round 'blobs' in the upper right third? The back of the 50 Lux was a bit wet, due to snow getting in my satchel and in the pocket where I keep this lens. I'd noticed that the back of the lens was a bit wet but didn't think much of it. I guess pointing the lens up to shoot the branches was enough for a couple drops to fall on the sensor. At first I was 'oh sh**' but then, it's 'just water' . Luckily it was just a few drops and eventually dried out (had to do a bit of sensor cleaning afterwards to remove the water spots). Cool thing is they act like little lenses right on the sensor, and those lines within the blob are the branches. Would be interesting to try it with water drops all over the sensor.

I like that last shot Ron. A little water on the sensor could be a future artistic tool!

Thanks Gary. Definitely something to keep in mind for a future project. BTW, I accidentally overlooked your photo above. B&W looks great and I really enjoy the moment and quality of the light. Interesting that he's curled up with an old-fashioned analog device (book) rather than an iPad, etc.

Yup - nothing beats the feel of a "real" book. We give our kids the option of buying ebooks and they always choose the paper versions. They have enough screen time as it is....

Thanks Winston and Edward.

Winston, b&w pillars photo is very nice.
Ron, I like the one with the 21 SEM and the following with the 28 cron. From the looking up exercise I like the almost graphical look with the 50 lux.
Michael, I like the last of your high iso shots.
Allen, #2 and #4 is very good. Kind of sparks your imagination.
Andrew, great set where I specially lines and angles in the VC 21photos
Gary, a very good photo where you caught the joy of reading a good book.
Justin, nice b&w street photos.
xpr.108, very nice set. I'm not sure I want to join in on the 'People on the ledge' photo

No nice light around today but here are still two photos with the 50 Lux.

Fantastic work, everyone!

Allen, I really like 3 and 4 from first set and 1 in the second set.

Andrew, nice graphism in the last set.

Gary, lovely portrait.

Justin, very nice set. Well caught expressions and wonderful b/w conversions.

Douglas, looks like a very interesting accessory.

xpr.108, excellent job with the ZM 25, one of my favourite lenses.

Ron, the last one is superb.

Joakim, really like the 3D in the 1st shot.
