  • Replied in Dera Gianluca
    Thank you for weighing in, Gianluca, I value your opinion and experience. What I think I will do is rent the 240 first, as I did with the M9, and put it through the wringer so that I can establish ...
  • Replied in Solo
    Thank you, Solo, this is just what I suspected, at least re the extended DR. I hope your wrestling match is well and truly over now, by the looks of the images you posted here, you have emerged ...
  • Replied in Bored stiff!
    Thanks James.
  • Created discussions Bored stiff!
    Quite literally... Leica X2, CS6 and some weird NIK HDR sauce. Hope you hate it! :-) Thomas
  • Replied in Howard
    Interesting observation, Howard, thank you. I never paid much attention to the whites, unless I really have to pull back some detail or other. The M9 clips a bit earlier than the 240 is what ...
  • That picture wouldn't have worked without your introduction. I wonder how often we should actually preface pictures posted here with a couple lines of text, just to establish a base line of ...
  • Louis, you devil! Praying on the innocent and the weak with temptations too much to resist. A Leica in a chocolate truffle box is just what the doctor ordered :-) Wonderful imagination and execution! ...
  • It is missing a ruby red chair somewhere :-) Maybe setting the grey all the way to deep blacks in the foreground would help make those simple vertical lines stand out even more? Just musing... And ...
  • Very hearty stuff, my dear Choi. I like the image of the poor skewered piglet roasting away next to all these empty tables :-( Happy Chinese Yang-Year! Thomas
  • Replied in Missions
    Very nice series, James. These missions have some rather sinister aspects to their history, though, especially from the native American Indian perspective, which is something people often forget. T ...
  • Congrats, a fine camera indeed. On the back end of things, you may want to reevaluate your production and output chain, starting with your monitor, RAW converter of choice, printer and so on. The ...
  • Can't advice on Dalian specifically as I've not been there in a long time, but photographic explorations in China in general can be very rewarding. Pick up a few phrases of colloquial Chinese, ...
  • Replied in Malabito
    Very nice set of images, thank you, but too small for me to pass any judgment. There will be plenty at Flickr and other places if I really go looking for "exemplary" renditions. You are right of ...
  • Yep, that's always an option. I rented the M9 twice before finally pulling the trigger.
  • Replied in JD
    I hear you, Jim, good points, thanks for chiming in.
  • Replied in Jeff
    Jeff, many thanks for introducing the IR dimension into the discussion, that's something I hadn't thought about. The increase in DR was what I thought would most likely add definition to the final ...
  • I am wondering if people who've had - or still have - both can tell me if the black & whites from the M240 have a different look/feel to them than those generated from the M9 DNGs. Or is it all ...
  • I've finished working on a couple more files, and added some images from the Jewish, Italian and the Serbian cemeteries in Colma, CA. Especially the Italian cemetery is a worthwhile place to ...
  • Thanks much for the comment, HGreblo, much appreciated.
  • Thank you, Ron, these are very interesting places, "shards of life" for the departed, as a friend of mine put it recently.
