Thanks for starting this thread, Max. Surely, it is destined to become even more and more interesting/fun/informative as more and more Q's get into the hands of all the good photographers here on RFF.

Although my favorite FL is 50mm I've always enjoyed and admired 28mm images but have to work hard to use it myself.

IMO, a 28 makes for complex compositions,--- I must pause and consider before releasing the shutter. It also challenges me to get closer to the subject than my typical comfort zone. But there ARE rewards!

As you rightly pointed out, Photon42, "a challenge, but isn't life about that?

From Thursday. My home town holds a small event annually, when they fire up the Christmas lighting on the main street. This portrait was taken at the market place where the main event was.

If you're looking for Q-photos, check out this blog:

www.leicakuh.de

("Kuh" is the German word for "cow" and it is pronounced just like the letter "Q" in German. So, it's a pun.)

Sorry what's the point of a blog about the Leica Q without a single color shot?
Yeah, I did read the comment about "color is overrated" but get a Monochrome when you want to photograph in b&w.

The 28mm is rewarding when you get the composition right, I say more challenging than the 35/50.

Ask the blogger if you want to know.

Actually, there is a definite advantage to using a color capable camera for black and white photos: It enables the simulation of contrast filters in post processing.

Isn't it self-explanatory? A lovely style-conscious woman carrying a Saks Fifth Avenue shopping bag and playing with her hair, possibly thinking about going to her hairdresser. It's a wonderful shot!

I still don't see it. To me it doesn't invoke any emotion. I wouldn't call her style conscious, she's wearing a plain black tank top while everyone else in the frame wears bright yellows and blues. Visually I'm more drawn to the woman in the yellow coat over the woman carrying handbags. The moment isn't unique. I can go to yorkville or bloor street and take many of these same shots. The expression on her face doesn't seem pleasurable and the lighting flattens her chin.

These are some reasons why I can't see why the image would be "good". There are many technical flaws that don't support a narrative. I think it relies too heavily on the subjects personal details. Which is fine if you like people watching. Heck I've been known to people watch a time or two but is it worth photographing ordinary people doing ordinary things? Not really.

Again I don't mean to single anyone out or come across in a negative sense but there is so much I see online that gets a lot of attention for reasons unknown to me.

Photography is subjective and you have to come to terms wit that fact that people are going to like something that you do not. Perhaps you believe too much in your opinion not allowing for other's opnions?

He lost me when he wrote: "And I trust and enjoy it more than any other camera I’ve owned. Yes, even more than my iPhone." - it is a different kind of photographer then me who enjoys shooting with any smartphone, be it Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Sony.

BTW, he doesn't state which version of the iPhone he is using, unclear therefore is which "iPhone is an unbeatable tool".....

Going under water ... all shot through 4 to 6 inches of poly carbonate, so that dirt is not on the lens . And strange color fringing is also not usual for the Q

Feel the burn.

I am at peace with people having differing taste to myself, but still, it's a pretty boring photograph haha

I'm definitely not on board with the whole 'firing off random shots of people in the street' thing. They pretty much all look the same on flickr.

But just to make sure I'm clear, I do understand that other people will enjoy looking at them

As the starter of this thread, I am very sorry I have been so inactive! I kinda forgot about it.

The Q is by far the best digital camera I have ever owned, but still, I regretfully have to tell you, I just recently sold it. Maybe some day in the future I will buy another one. From a self-amusement factor, I still enjoy rangefinders the most. By selling the Q at this time, I could afford to buy a 35mm Summicron lens and a Fuji X70.

So, I leave you with an overprocessed photo of a man soaking in the sea, and I humbly bow out.
