Thanks Phil! The Calgary Stampede is an annual exhibition, rodeo, and festival which runs for about a week each July. It's a great time and the town really explodes with tourists and visitors from all over the world. That lady in the last pic (Bendy Em) fit into an extremely small box. Pretty incredible.

Thanks Gary, now I remember we have 2 office locations (Calgary and Vancouver) and all the employees from there, email me and tell me what a blast they have there and how the offices there have kegger parties in the office, unfortunately our office location only serves ice tea and cupcakes

I was asked if I was interested in going to the Calgary office once but declined I hear the winters are below ZERO CELSIUS? Too cold for my blood for this desert kid

^Ron thanks heaps for your sample! The girl was pretty small so I had to focus quite close to her but your pic looks really good too. I was hesitant to get the lux because of the price, its double the 28 cron and I really can't afford it right now. At least now I know the lux wont suffer from distortion at MFD while the WATE does.

Earlier, I mentioned that I like to shoot in projects or series. The ten pictures below are for a new one with the working title of Surabaya Johnny, a song by Kurt Weill/Bertold Brecht sung in a classic rendition

" target="_blank">here by Lotte Lenya
in German. You can find on the web a version in English, sung by Ute Lemper.

As my now, for a while, turning from street photography from B&W to color with the M9, I am consciously being careful of trying to make photos that are not too "exquisite", of which I feel I have to be careful with the M-Monochrom as well. Mind you, I am not using "exquisite" here as a derogatory term, bur only as something that can under time the sometimes "dark" look at life that I sometimes want to express. That's one reason that I have been using Clarity, for example; although I have not applied Clarity at all or to a significant extent in the pictures below, expect in one of them

Mitch - 5, 6, 10 work best for me. With 5 being the most interesting.

Ron - Great 21 shot (again, since I've seen it before) and the 28 shot is pretty awesome as well. Very dramatic posture for the kid, he must be really unhappy and bored now that he can't bang his broom into things.
About the 21 shot, did you crop it, if you can remember?

Gary - Great captures. Looks like a fun day in Calgary.

Elisemkii - Nice Summarit shots..

muc_marlin - 1st and 3rd! (if we lived in the same time zone) I be going to sleep when you're likely to be getting up. Definitely worth the photos though.

Adam, thanks for reminding me I forgot to mention the 21mm sample above is uncropped. The version I posted about a year ago was adjusted for true vertical alignment because I tend to tilt my horizons a bit with the M9, thus cropping it to probably around 24mm...

The kid wasn't depressed for too long. When asked what he was doing, he said "looking at flowers."

rirakuma - wasn't suggesting you should get the Lux, just wanted to offer an example of how a portrait at about 70cm looks in comparison. Not sure the Lux is that justifiable when one can get the CV21/1.8 for much less. Though I did keep my Lux.
Gary - very nice separation of your kids from the background in these. Great colours too all around.
Mitch - I think 6 and the environment of 9 do it best for me.

Probably boring everyone with these images, but as said, it's what I have on hand at the moment, and I think pretty nicely show off the 28 Cron.






















IIRC, the third and fourth might have had a bit more cropping than usual. But still, at that subject distance, the lens has pretty nice background separation.

Ron, great series with the 28 Cron. Love your skillful compositions with WA's.

rirakuma, wonderful shots,and thanks so much for the sample DNG's. They are a lot better than I anticipated! Very nice portrait with a 21, and great cam too

Adam, stunning portrait! Love the colours.

Phil, beautifully rendered B&W image.

Joakim, what a great array of lenses. Depending on whether you are a 28/35 or 50 FL person. I am a 50FL'er, so I usually opt for the 24 Lux/50 Lux, Nocti and 75 Lux only now. I do quite often take the 28 Cron and 35 Lux too.

Peter, wonderful mountainscapes!!!

Gary, very nice series from Calgary. Love the colours in the last one.

Mitch, 3, 5, 6 and 9 are my picks! Very nice.

My chrome M9P sold on ebay this evening, so I will be receiving my black M hopefully within the next week

rirakuma, thank you for the sample DNG files. My take on one of the shots I hope you don't mind.

^No worries Charles and thanks for posting your take on it. I'm actually interested in how people would work on the files so please feel free to post your work on the samples. Congrats on your new M too, I'm glad you can move to the M

Ron - great samples of the 28 Cron....making me rethink not owning that one. One of my all time favorite lenses. Too many wants

Charles - I can't wait to get your opinion of the M. As much as I say I don't want/need the new M, it would be awfully hard to pass one up

rirakuma - excellent shots on the past few pages, really like what you did with the waterfall shot

Gary - more nice shots from the stampede

Mitch - some great street shots, keep them coming

Adam - excellent portrait, love the look

Phil - please DON'T go to color....your b/w images are excellent. Wait, you must have gotten a new toy

Thanks Ron, Charles, and all for the comments, boy this thread moves fast!

Ryan love the umbrella shot! very nice and full of colors! got a Ricoh GR to get my color fix, still have the M8, but it's sure nice to use AF once in awhile, that first shot from the first set is amazing as well, love the lines and simplicity of the shot! Keeping it Simple

That would be great if the MM had AF! But thats far from ever happening in my lifetime.

Thanks for the comments and likes!

In therms of getting up early. I also like to sleep, but getting out early has so many advantages, no traffic, best air and temperatures, wildlife encounters, totally alone, best light and no traffic getting home. When I reach home I take a 2 hour nap and then I have still a half day left for friends and family.

Alberto, the look of your kids is priceless.

Ron, excellent sample shot of the Lux21! I cant find any fringing, did you corrected it?

Gary, love the colored background in the last shot!

Charles, congrats to your decision to get the M. I am also very interested in your findings!

rsolti, love the umbrella shot, it really stands out!
