Thanks Katie, Charles and Edward for the comments!

Tri Tan, interesting set from Disneyland. It is probably the complete opposite of the Shetland Islands from a vacation pov
Katie, the second one is really nice.
Gary, beautiful scenery in the second and nice 3D effect with an interesting bokeh with the 50 Lux.

Joakim, those look great! Would you mind sharing a bit how you process these?

Thanks!

For the orange color the problem was that they looked washed out, almost overexposed so I used the HSL panel in Lightroom to get back som detail and also to tone down intensity. I used the pipette tool (not sure if that is what it's called) to decrease saturation and luminance in the red and orange color. This made it better but still not good enough so I tried to change the hue as well which is something I rarely do but by taking out some red from the red and orange hue the colors got more balanced.

Apart from that I haven't done much since the overcast sky made exposure quite easy, I used Tone curve mostly to apply a slight s-curve to increase contrast and to set the white point and I also used the Highlight slider to decrease the highlights in the water surface. And then sharpening of course.

Thank you for kind comments and 'like'.

Peter, the whole set looks great and I really like the last one.
Joakim, the bridge shot of pre-pg is great. fishes looks great too. Orange/red is tough to deal. Definitely need play HSL panel, color looks great here.
Gary, nice scene! 17km? Your daughter is great
Edward, Nice street set! like that blue hue.
Ryan, Love the family series, MM looks great here!
Tri, Looks really fun, I wish I can be back to it with my kids soon.
Charles, the night shot from M240 looks great.
Katie, nice cloud, and also like the mood of that house shot.

Here are few more from Kauai

Gary, beautiful scenery again. No worries about repetition, we love these photos

Charles, that sounds like good news. I have the feeling the Typ 240 new microlens design isn't as good as the offset microlenses of the M9/ME in terms of vignetting and color shift with UWA.

Zhangyue, thank you for your comments! Very nice rocky beach shots, and the b/w PP is perfect. The tonality in the rocks is beautiful.

Thank you so much Charles, Edward, Joakim, Gary, Zhangyue and Ryan!

Gary - how was your Yellowstone trip? I just realized that we had chatted briefly through PM about us both going this summer!

Zhangyue - Lovely images from Kauai!

Ryan - I just got the lens yesterday and only had time for just a few shots. I plan to shoot more with it this weekend - along with the 15 and 50 ... Also, love the MM shots. I'm a sucker for starbursts!

Joakim - thanks again for the details on how you edited those images! I love to see what other people do!

Ryan - yep, we go hiking a lot and is one of the things we love about being so close to the rocky mountains.

Katie - Yes, Yellowstone was amazing. Still have to get around to posting a few pics...

Guys some really cool shots (I'm limited to my iPad this vacation so hard to comment individually)..

Gary, I've yet to notice magenta shift on the 21 SEM on my LCD screen.. Haven't loaded the images yet though.

Speaking of the SEM, it's been great so far, love it! The 50APO I'm really convinced I can't live without.. Its just a very agreeable lens, great balance of everything I like in a lens..

Hopefully I'll have some great images to show everyone when I get back home. Oh and still have a bunch of horse images to put online!!

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

I have a NEC monitor, but stopped using it several years ago and now I only use the screen of my 17" Mac laptop. The screen is far from perfect, but I don't see any adverse effect on my prints...

Some calibration tools allow to calibrate to brightness that you specify. If your images look too bright on other devices, perhaps you should use such calibration tool and calibrate to higher brightness. I used to have i1 Display and these days I use ColorMunki. Both use different software packages and if I am not mistaken, both allow setting the target brightness manually. The ColorMunki for sure. Try to find brightness level that works well for viewing on your monitor, on other devices, but also for prints - people often complain about dark prints, because their monitors are cranked up too much and the images end up being too dark when printed. This is kinda opposite problem to what you have. I think the reasonable target is 100-120 cd/m2.

I have ordered a Dell Ultrasharp monitor (and am upgrading to Windows 7 and LR5) ... so we will see! I have always calibrated with Colorvision Datacolor.

Went to a birthday party today... these are with the M-E and CV 35 1.2

Thank you Michael The B&W tonality in the top set are excellent! I just love the abstract color images, particularly the last image!! Amazing series.

Ryan, wonderful evening series! There are no limitations with the M-M
Adam, I really thought you would gel with the 50 Cron AA The images I have seen so far with this lens are just amazing, sharp but gentle at the same time.
Edward, really like the last shot!
Katie, the first portrait capture is wonderful!!

When I got to Paris, resolved to get back to doing black and white with the M-Monochrom, which I haven't used since buying the M9-P in late February. Accordingly, below are five pictures taken with the Summicron-28 at ISO 1250. Frankly, they don't do much for me, except that they are all "no finder shots" — a technique that I started using in some of my night color pictures in Bangkok, whenever I wanted to shoot without interaction (and posing) by the subject to avoid (shall we call it to be cute?) the "Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle."

The trouble is that I haven't formulated a project. Without a concept in mind, generally, I find it difficult to to anything interesting, particularly in black and white. Also, these days I find that I want something edgier than this from black and white and that means fighting the "exquisite" result the M-Moncohrom pushes you to.

Many pages earlier I wrote about my search for a title for the Thai color series that I was putting together. Essentially, I wanted a title that would allow the viewer to put together his or her own story for the pictures, as my approach, or belief, is based on depiction rather than suggesting a story. The initial working title was Surabaya-Johnny, the name of a 1930s song by Kurt Weill/Bertold Brecht, but that was too obscure to have a meaning for most viewers. I've now settled, at least for the time being, on Tristes Tropiques. You can see the 96-picture series here, if you are so inclined. I'm considering making a Blurb book out of it.

Sometimes I feel like my shooting style goes against everything "Lecia" (traditionally speaking). It makes things quite fun I think.

Color event coverage + off camera flash. No Leica glass.

Thank you everyone.

Mitch - you say nothing special, but I disagree. Those are great!
Mike - wonderful as usual. You manage nice color even in the most difficult situations.
Zhangyue - Those are BREATH TAKING shots. Every one of them! The depth and soul in the first one really strikes me. Very 3-D and I can see everything in her eyes!
