Wow!!!

Where and when can we see this? Are you involved with this? It looks AMAZING!


I'm not involved. When I was in college in the 1980s I saw both Meyerowitz and Davidson speak and saw their exhibits at the time. Davidson's new book was Subway and Meyerowitz had just finished Red Heads.

I think it's going to premiere at one of the big film festivals. I can't remember which one. Then it's going to be hopefully in theaters and if not PBS.

Thank very much Peter and Ryan for the kind words
Ryan, excellent series! My favourites are with the 50 Nokton II. I also really like the last portrait with the Canon 100
Joakim, lovely shot! I am noticing a slight magenta edge on the left, which I did not think would apply to the 50's any longer after the latest FW updates.
Peter, stunning shots, particularly the last shot of the birch trees!

Peter - fantastic series! Those reflections are wonderful.
Joakim - Lovely, tranquil shot.
Also, thanks everyone for the information on fixing my issues with the CV 15mm...

Another question - or rather an issue I'm having. Does everyone have a calibrated monitor? What kind do you have? Mine is calibrated, but I'm not sure that the calibration is all that accurate. Not necessarily with colors, but more with the brightness level. When I edit to taste on my desktop, I am very careful with brightness values, as I don't like an overly-bright image. But when viewing the image on my other two computers (another desktop and a laptop) or on kindle fire or iphone - they all look too bright! When you calibrate, it says to keep the room dark, but if I calibrate it in the dark, could it be making my calibration TOO dark?

Some from today with the new-to-me Nokton 50 1.5. I think my adapter sucks, because framelines are waaay off (more like showing a 35mm) and it doesn't line up straight when mounted (it's cocked/rotated to the right).

Katie, congrats on the Nokton 50/1.5 Very nice lens, just a shame about the adapter.

With respect to monitor calibration, there is a lot of info out there. Personally I use NEC PA 24" monitors with SpectraViewII hardware calibration software. The NEC's are cheaper, and more than good enough for my work. About every 4 weeks I calibrate my 2 NEC PA's as well as my MacBook Pro 17" with X-Rite i1 Display Pro. I have attached a link on specifically calibrating the NEC's, but at the bottom there is discussion on contrast and intensity levels which is interesting, and specific to your question. For printing the contrast ratio set point should be a lot lower, around 200:1 and intensity setting at 90 or 100 depending on the brightness of you viewing environment. The link to image science is
http://www.imagescience.com.au/kb/questions/142/How+To+Calibrate+An+NEC+Monitor+With+SpectraView+II

The website has a lot of very interesting articles on color management too

Ryan, thank you for the comments. Love your b/w sets, you've got a great family and very nice photos to show it.

Joakim, really like the evening planar shot. Bluish cool tones are perfect.

Peter, love the cool tones in the photos 1, 2 and 5, but I'm not so keen on the warmness in 3 and 4. They seem to have too much veiling haze?

Katie, nice dog shot.

Charles, perfect exposure and balance. I see some residual redness in the corners, are you using the auto lens profiles?

Thanks Allen, Katie, Charles and Edward.

Charles, thanks for catching this. I don't have the original available right now but it might have been me who messed up the tint when I adjusted the WB, I'll check it tonight since I'm curious about it. I like the composition and presence in your latest 21 SEM photo.

Peter, great set.

Katie, I like the dog photo. About calibration, I try to keep my room lit the same way as when I am working when I do the calibration.

Another set from Shetland, this is from a village named Hamnavoe. We were waiting for the bus when a small fishingboat arrived.

First 2 with the 28 Summicron and second 2 with the 50 Summilux

(This also turned out to be a post processing exercise in handling bright orange clothes, not that easy)

Thank you Edward and Joakim

Edward, I am using auto profiles, and I suspect it is the vignetting that you are seeing. Usually the residual redness is on side, and cyan on the other. I will definitely keep an eye on this

Joakim, very nice series of the fishing boat arrival

Thanks! I pulled over after dropping my son at football practice and grabbed this one... It never did rain here, but it sure seemed like it would.

Joakim, you really tamed the oranges and yellows. Nice PP work.

Tri Tran, nice and colorful set. Nice job with the difficult backlighting.

Charles, I heard the auto profiles are not yet perfected with the Typ 240. Hopefully a FW update will improve the performance.

Katie, those look good and I don't see any objectionable Italian flag effect.

Yeah - some great clouds in that shot Katie.

Charles - At times, I also notice a slight magenta cast on the right side when using my 21SEM. It happens very rarely and is dependent on the shooting conditions.

A couple more - hope I'm not boring you with the same view...
