Under a hot Australian sky ....

I thought was just the right condition to shoot some high contrast black and whites. An hour's walk at lunch time was just the thing to do this.

Mainly with the 28 cron and also with a loaner Zeiss C Sonnar T 50/1.5. Think the Zeiss better suited to portraiture rather than street. I used the Monochrom for this endeavour. I metered the brightest part of the scene and underexposed by 1/3 stop. Files barely touched in post except to crop and straighten. Shadows were lifted just the slightest.

Images from a warm sunny Melbourne, Australia. Files are best viewed large.

I was about to board the tramcars when I turned away to grab this

Thanks for looking and feel free to comment. I just looked over these and have to say that I have forgotten how good the Monochrom is. Leica really did well with this camera.
