What a bunch of beautifuls, descriptives, and evocative images. Congratulation and thank to the photographer.. Way beyond the boring L-eica-nikor-summicron discussion...
I believe in the photographer-tool connection and the way that influence his own narrative.
This is as sharp as it gets. Is that the new 50mm summicron asph? It would be nice to see a comparison with the old 50mm.
personally i think....
one point is Not Fair towards the builders
this camera is presented here as a Clipping-Beauty
the photo here Must-Clip due to contrasting straight sunlight spots.
others have throttled over-exposures.
though what you can see.
the camera has excellent performance in mid and low range
throttling down the exposure in stead of Up would be far more
Despite all the negative comments about Leica that seem to fill the columns on DP Review (often from people who don't own a single peice of Leica kit) - just take a really careful look at this picture. Even with the best Japanese cameras and lenses and running the finest software, your pictures are never this detailed straight off the camera. This is a great example of why Leica lenses have the reputation they do!
I've always wanted to see the individual hairs on this man's chin, and now I can. I can only dream and wonder what the shirt looks like in colour.
