Seattle Skyline (big) shot with the DP1 Merrill...

Not a panorama, just some of the top and bottom cropped out...
Shot across Lake Washington. I'm finding the detail from this camera to be really uncanny.

Nice!

Feels very "authentic" for lack of a better word...

Handheld?

Thanks! Yes, it was handheld. After converting to B&W I pushed the contrast a bit also. The contrast enhancement made the "grain" stand out a bit more but I kept it that way instead of using noise reduction as I like the look, especially with B&W shots.

Well done

Sigmas are very nice for B&W work indeed...

I often even push the ISO up to get more grain when doing B&W...

Seems pretty sharp edge to edge and I like the grain too. Very nice view.
