Wow, excellent page, I really enjoy all the different genres!

Joakim, congrats to the 24 Lux!

rirakuma, the picture is a little bit small but the post processing looks good to my eyes! Great location and picture, but I think it would be even better without the rock in the right upper? On the other hand I don't know the location and a position 4 steps to right and 3 down, would have been to risky.

Another "test", always nice when trees in the neighborhood are in bloom.

A "left-over parts bin lens", made from pieces of 6 different J-3's and Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm F1.5's. Ranging from 1938 to the 1960s.

At F1.5,

And at F4. Most of the focus shift on this lens occurs between F1.5 and F2.

Turns out: Rear triplet from the KMZ J-3's can be interchanged with the pre-war and wartime Sonnars. The front element and middle triplet are interchangeable with Zeiss, KMZ, ZOMZ, and Valdai- at least ones that I have tried. The Zeiss optical fixture is better engineered for holding the front element in place.

This particular lens maintains focus across the full range, I tried out 5 different front elements to get one that did.

Hi everyone, as always there has been beautiful images.
I recently traded my 24mm SEM for the 21mm SEM since I have a 28mm Elmarit already. I have gone back to favorites places to shot. Cal Plaza, my former office location and Union Station, new office location. The Huntington Gardens has new additions to the Chinese Garden and repairs to the Japanese Garden.

I was able to attend the launching of the new Leica T type 701 camera in West Hollywood and it is stunning in its esthetics and operation. Got a chance to speak with Dr. Andreas Kaufmann (Chairman of the Leica Supervisory Board) and he asked me how I liked my M. Told him that the Leica M has really modernize the rangefinder system and it shows that a Mexican kid that grew up in South Central LA can grow up to appreciate the quality of Leica.

I love that shot, no kidding.

Does not look over processed on my monitor, in fact it looks very clean and natural. Maybe if I was peeping.....


I agree uhoh

Thank you everyone for the feedback! I'll spend a bit more time on it before I put it on flickr and share the bigger size.

Peter, thanks for the advice . I had a 21mm with me at the time and I felt that I would have to include too much foreground and negative space on the left side to exclude the cliff face. I'll come back here again sometime with my M8, it'll probably give it that perfect crop as you have suggested.

Brian, your copy looks really clean. The transition looks incredibly smooth at f4.

EDIT: did a tiny bit of adjustment and this is what I ended up with. Thank you again for the feedback guys

Rocky, excellent!!
It would be fair to add that trying to take landscape images in Australia, is very light dependent. Any sunlight, makes for very difficult PP'ing as the DR is extreme. Also Australian bush is very rugged with a lot of Eucalyptus trees with bark and leaves making it difficult to dodge in the compositions.

Quick question, any recommendations on what to get to clean my M9 sensor? It's in pretty bad shape!

Just to south a few miles, spring creeps up the gullies and draws which drain the peaks and foothills:

Just picked up a new (to me) Leica M9 and tested it this morning with my beloved 1937 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm f/1.5 Sonnar (uncoated).

ISO 160, wide-open (used ND 3 stop) and no post other than LR5 DNG conversion.

Boring photos, but good to see that the old Sonnar works well on the M9.

I plan on using this combo (M9 with pre-war Sonnar) for tonight's Rotary meeting. Will set to ISO 800, so should still be pretty clean.

Edward - very nice color in those sunset shots!
Charlie - looks like it's time to swap the skiis for the trials bike...
Salvaz - nice set!
Rocky - I think the PP on this shot is just perfect! Nicely done.
Allen - more nice work, well done.
Peter - this is such an awesome set! I love your landscapes as they look so natural and really capture the essence of nature. Powerful and rugged, yet so beautiful and peaceful.
Asiafish - congrats on the M9!! Looking forward to seeing more.

This thread has been expensive.
Peter-Your landscape samples, especially the 90mm Cron has caused me to get a mint 90mm M-Elmarit. I shoot a few landscapes and street images today and really like it.
A mint 28mm Cron is on the way and that is it. The American Express with be shredded for 6 months.
