  • Stunning photographs of a stunning place! I hope to go to Iceland some day. Thank you! Peter
  • This was indeed the ASPH Summilux 50mm...a great lens, especially for portraits of this kind. I love how compact it is, too. Thanks to all for your comments. I do intend to go back there very soon, ...
  • Created discussion thread Classic car garage in Tokyo
    Sakado-san's garage, Hiroshima Autos, in Katsushika-ku, Tokyo. An Aladdin's Cave for enthusiasts (and photographers). The owner even has a bar there. It's behind the stuff piled up there along the ...
  • Shinto priest at a wedding in Tokyo
  • Submitted a challenge entry Morning in a royal park
    Camera was set to JST while I was in the UK, hence the time discrepancy. Apologies for not fixing that.

  • I don't know Tsukuba but I do know Nagareyama quite well (one of the radiation 'hotspots'!) and I agree it's no oil painting. I live in Katsushika-ku, in Tokyo, but still fairly near Matsudo. It's ...
  • Wow! This looks like a scene from a horror film. What's going on here?
  • Created discussion thread Sakura's last gasp
    This Monday was really the last chance to view the sakura before the wind blew them completely away. For me this is the most beautiful time, when the effect is like a light breezy snowfall. Here ...
  • Don't worry, I like your version of that picture. I already cropped it down, actually, and toyed with a tighter crop similar to yours, but eventually left it where it was. If I were to print it ...
  • Created discussion thread Sakura in Japan
    This week the annual cherry-blossom viewing here in Tokyo entered full swing. I went out to a couple of local beauty spots to shoot the sakura and the people who love them. Cheers Peter
  • Created discussion thread Early morning walk (3 pics)
    Taken in Bushy Park, South-west London, last Wednesday just after sunrise All M9 with (brand-new!) Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH. Very happy so far! All C&C welcome. Thanks for looking, Peter

    Placed 45th in the challenge.
  • Why not a 50?
  • My thanks to those those who replied. I am still very much enamoured of the M9's somewhat eccentric colour rendering, particularly in mixed lighting. They need some tweaking, but the results speak ...
  • Created discussion thread Shitamachi - Downtown Tokyo (5 photos)
    'Shitamachi' is the Japanese word for the downtown areas of the city, the slightly cheaper, dirtier places where small shops and businesses crowd for attention in a manner redolent of old Edo. ...
  • Commented on Ann in the Aperture 2.8 or Larger + 50mm focal length challenge

    Very nice portrait. I am not familiar with this lens at all, but it has a great (dare I say?) 'Noctilux', look about it.

    Congrats on the win!

  • Submitted a challenge entry Friends
    Placed 5th in the challenge.
  • Rodrigue thanks for your advice. On reflection I agree with you. I do think it would improve the look if the bottom of the picture were darker. Many thanks Peter
  • Created discussion thread Monochromes from Madrid
    A couple from Spain. M9/35mm Summicron IV. I just downloaded Silver Efex Pro 2 as a tryout. I quite like it so far. Comments welcome. Thanks for looking. Peter The Palacio Real de Madrid Madrid ...
