Wow, I'll echo that this thread sure has been moving along at a fast clip. Great to see so many compelling images! Gone through and 'liked' though for expediency might miss some in the comments below (apologies):

Ryan K: wow, congrats on the coming family addition! Wonderful images, too.
Gary: great Stampede sets.
Allen: congrats on the recognition and love the fence/gate image too.
Edward: Glad the 85 Sonnar is growing on you. It certainly appears to be a wonderful lens with interesting character - particularly thinking of the background rendering in the shot of the statue. Would be interesting to see it against the 90AA, as leonasj's images from that lens look great, very clean.
Phil: beautiful images. Love #2 in the set above. The single you just posted above also has a great feel.
rirakuma: congrats on the M240 and your results look good to me. Great use of the old Summarit above. Looks really well controlled here.
Ryan: love the police car set, particularly the leadoff image and its dramatic lighting.
Joakim: great sets, particularly the B&Ws, especially the window.

Just some picture-postcard sunsets from me from last night. Saw the clouds as the sun was going down and couldn't resist making a beeline from the grocery store parking lot down to the water.



























M9 & 28 Cron x2, Nikkor 10.5cm/2.5 LTM, 50 Lux ASPH, Canon 35/2 LTM (now coded as 35 Cron IV, which seems to have helped the bluish corner color shift somewhat).

Phil and Ron, thank you for your comments!

Phil, really nice shot with the perfect framing imho. I like the main subject centre position and the lot of info about the surrounding environment.

I would certainly recommend the Sonnar for b/w as so far my conversions from my M9 files all look good. I would even say the character of this lens is very suited to b/w. Good luck in finding one though, you can buy a brand new 90 AA for the same price or even less.

Ron, beautiful sunset series. Difficult to pick a favourite. As for the Sonnar, I believe the 90 AA is overall the better lens. The Sonnar has a little of veiling haze wide open that may look good in portraits, and any in-focus specular highlights will have a strong blue fringe (curiously slightly oof highlights have no blue fringing). From what I have seen online, I believe the Sonnar has a better bokeh than the 90 AA and a much more pronounced 3D pop, but these are subjective attributes, technically the 90 AA is faultless, though a bit boring.

Thanks Edward - no need to pick a favorite.

Yes, I remember the blue fringing. I guess I'd have to use the lens a lot to see how much that would bother me.

A bit more experimental set from the sunset, though I already posted a similar trial awhile back...



























M9 & Nikkor 10.5cm f/2.5 LTM x4, last with the 50 Lux ASPH

Wow! These are really amazing Ron. I do prefer the ones taken with the Nikkor because of the clear separation between in-focus and OOF areas.

Ron - these sunsets are wonderful. 2is my favourite, followed by 3

Edward - more fabulous shots taken with the Sonnar and they tempt me to use a variation of he German word for sunshine! Your GF is even more beautiful when she smiles.

lenticular, nice set, I like the three in the middle the most. Just out of curiosity, why are you not removing the dust spots?

Ryankarr, gorgeous set on p.743 #4, except of the third I love them all! Congrats about your daughter!

Rirakuma, congrats for your new M...excellent shot!

Rsolti, nice shots with the Canon 100/2, fantastic vintage cars, I really like vintage cars...they had some character!

Gary Clennan, from your set I like the third and the last the most.

tthorne, great shot, I prefer the b&w because it has a greater impact!

Joakim, nice pics and walk.

Edward, the Zeiss Sonnar 85mm seems to be a hell of a lens!

leonasj, nice examples of the APO 90/2 ASPH.!

jojomon, love all your recent MM pictures!

Ron, excellent play with color and light!

Thanks, Re dust, it's sheer laziness on this occasion - pretty inexcusable when the standard of posts on this and other threads is so high!

I like your mountainscapes. Favourites from your last 2 posts are 1, 4, 5 and especially 7.

Thanks guys!

Joakim - like the windows!

Peter, looks like you rolled out of bed to catch the sunrise this time? I assume it's sunrise. I really enjoy the gentle rendering and soft layering in these.

Edward, wow, these images feel so clear and immediate, like being there.

Here's a mini-series I call "Timmie Trash:"



























M9 & 28 Cron x2, 50 Lux ASPH x3 - might revisit the downsizing of these as they look quite harsh...

Some are likely familiar with Tim Hortons, Canada's dominant coffee & doughnut chain, also nicknamed Timmie's. It seems they're also a pretty significant source of eyesore garbage in public places, particularly their paper coffee cups. While I was in Port Maitland, exploring the pier and breakwater on the Lake Erie shore, I noticed numerous examples of this and how the cups all looked so new and pristine, as if someone had just left them moments earlier. While there I could have also done a series on abandoned styrofoam bowls used to transport earthworms used as bait by recreational fishermen on the pier, so it's not just a problem related to coffee cups. Anyway, maybe I'm being naive, but I'm surprised by how lazy some people are just leaving their trash lying around... I guess the problem is the garbage cans are all located in the parking lot, too far away for convenience.

joakim really liking that first shot!

Ron agree w/you very disgraceful to litter anywhere, even if trashcans were further away, thats still not an excuse to litter. Nice series, last one for me. I will boycott Timmie's

Nice color pop to the cups though

Phil
