  • Well said John, on the points you made in general. In particular, frameline accuracy is the bête noire of the Leica Ms, and is just something that the photographer has to accept, or work at to ...
  • When using the 5D, in order to know where the depth-of-field shows objects in focus, I have to depress the DoF button to see it. This applies to all of my Canon lenses, and especially to ...

    It sure is! He makes two sweeping observations in his "teaching points"; on the first, regarding flash and rangefinders, he's being properly schooled by his blog-commenters. On the second where he ...
  • Hi Raaj, I don't take your comments as any sort of attack. Thanks for the posting. I see the buy-in for Leica rangefinders as a pole with opposite points of - on one end - the appreciation for the ...
  • He covers the benefits of the rangefinder dynamics for street photography very well. I've said it before: the difference between using an SLR and a rangefinder is that when looking through the ...
  • There is a vestigial, almost Rorschach-like nod to Picasso's "Don Quixote" in that evergreen. Tilting at windmills, I wish you and your family the best for the holidays, Frank. Cheers!
  • There are three very interesting points in your comments to address: How much should we adhere to the techniques of the Masters? Is flash impolite? How does a photographer counter-balance his ...
  • Hi Steven: My T images are usually shot no faster then 1/320s, so there isn't much chance for very crispy and sharp images...definitely not sharp enough that I can detect the smearing in the ...
  • Thanks for your comments, Kostas. The problem with not using flash in low-light situations where artificial light is present is that the sensor is at the mercy of the ambient light. Plenty of ...
  • I find the processed image quite fine. Probably as the lens is stopped down and the light passes through a smaller amount of glass, and through a relatively larger ratio of fungus, the contrast ...

    "Great minds think unalike", then. I stand corrected.  :)
  • ...have enjoyed "The Great Beauty". I find that utterly fascinating. Janlu has written before that he's watched it several times; this has influenced me to give it another viewing, or five. So ...
  • Replied in Paul:
    happy new year. To use the current North American vernacular: "I can't breathe"! All the best to you and your family for Christmas.
  • Replied in Louis, Gianluca:
    Thanks for your comments, "Light-Master" and "Notte-Maestro"!
  • Excellent! I appreciate the way in which you framed the scene from a straight-on angle; this is generally considered a Surrealist convention. It flattens the plane of the image...so it also ties ...
  • It's a new-found pleasure to be now able to shoot at 1600ISO, with faster shutter speeds than I'm used to. On the M8, I would limit the ISO setting to 640 or slower. This was shot at f/5.6, ...
  • Great idea for an end-of-year thread! Repeating elements as visual pun: puns being the lowest form of humour. You might have to be a "Hockey Dad" to appreciate this.
  • My understanding is that the fungus grows in old Leica lenses and old Leica Cameras. I don't know the era in which this issue stopped, but the M3 optical viewfinder was prone to fungus build-up. ...
  • This is MOST DEFINITELY fungus, and will degrade the contrast of your image. I don't think it can be fixed by Leica, and I would strongly, strongly recommend you reverse this purchase. Fungus ...
  • Lately I've been passionately interested in photographing street situations where people are interacting with one another. This picture, and several others in this series, do just that. It's ...
