Really like that one a lot, Gary. Great catch with the light, too.

The 28mm profiles are like some kind of magic fix, they seem to work well for a lot of lenses including the CV 15/4.5.


Interesting. I'll have to give that a try. In previous testing I found the 21/2.8 non-ASPH seemed like a great all-rounder with many UWAs and the last time I went through this, with the CV21/1.8, also noticed that a couple of the 28mm profiles were very good. The biggest hassle of this is the incorrect focal length reporting in EXIF..

Thanks for doing the comparison Edward, it's very informative.

Thanks for the tips Katie!

Here's one from the Cherry Beach area of Toronto. While wandering the area, it was inundated by blowing Cottonwood seeds, but I didn't have a great deal of luck translating the effect into photos...

Thank you Gary and Ron! In fact the 21/2.8 profile is really excellent. There is a very slight reddish cast that you can see clearly in the black net on the left side of the frame. It must be easily correctable. But the 28/2.8 11809 profile is equally as good with neutral color.

Very nice shot Ron. Good depth and slightly low key. I think you would have needed more backlighting to emphasize the cotton seeds.

Thanks Edward. I think this is a situation where I could have benefitted from a longer lens to get more compression and increase the effect of the seeds in the air. Shooting more backlit in this situation resulted in blown out sky in more of the scene. Looking at the images on the camera I was a bit concerned because they looked pretty high contrast, but was able to smooth things out in post. Been leaning a bit more that way lately - gentler rendering, at least with people photos, not for the stuff below.

A few more of twisted rebar and concrete... I guess it's not everyone's fancy, but this kind of scene is eye candy for me, trying to sort out reasonable compositions from the chaos...

Nice Ron! I really like the varying textures in the first one. I think the color also really adds to it...

Ron - I have spent time studying the texture in your concrete series.
Edward - have enjoyed your travel images, something special about street photography in Europe.
Katie - I can feel the heat and humidity in your images with the kids.
Gary - "The Chosen One" is my pick of the B/W landscapes.

I have been working on finding a color processing for the M that I like.
I have a few from the gritty Art District, Chinatown and Echo Park.







While looking for something interesting in the Art District, found this scene.







Take a photo with what you have handy







Love Chinatown because of the colors and decaying structures

Wow, been such a long while since I've posted or even visited FM forums. A community that I'd visit many times a day. Just been bogged down with unfriendly deadlines (they never are), travel, health,etc. (a bit of laziness on those rare off times as well where I caught up on sleep). After Rajasthan in January, I got out with the camera just the end of last month.

Anyway, all's good now and back to processing and posting photos.. All that work did involve some nice travel. Here are some from Brande, Denmark.
All with the 35 Summaron. It does take a lot of effort to get back behind the camera after a long break.

Sorry for not commenting on all photos. There's probably 50 pages of it.

Wonderful images on this page, guys! Happy 4th of July to you Americans! Here are some from a parade with the M-E and 50 Lux.

On a side note: do any of you print at home?





Happy Republicans!

Very cool outfits on these re-enactors







snapped two consecutive shots and liked how the front and rear looked here...

Awesome images here everyone!!! I have been incredibly busy, and not a lot of time for shots, but I have looking and "liking" here. I will catch up comments here shortly

Katie, very nice set! I print a lot at home with an Epson 3880 printer. I use ImagePrint 9/10 from ColorBytes, as the driver controls the hardware of the Epson 3800 directly, rather than CS6 software, to ensure the color corrections for the different styles of paper are matched carefully. This works really well, and you have a lot of control. I regularly print A2 size images and it is lots of fun having the print version!!

Thank you Salvador and Gary!

Salvador, very nice set and I think the colors are look very good. Sometimes it's better to have attractive rather than accurate color balance.

Manoj, nice play on composition and color. Last shot is my favorite!

Gary, I like the composition and the rather low contrast and saturation. They work very well for this shot.

Katie, fun and lively shots from the parade. Good job!

Charles, Hope to see you here more often

Great pictures, everyone.

Ron, I for one think the concrete and rebar shots are great for compositional study. I see some interesting elements such as complementary colors and a contrast between man-made and nature; some even show some hint of order in all that chaos.

Katie, I print at home with a Canon Pixma Pro-100, usually in A4 and A3+ size.
