Voigtlaender Nokton (Prominent) with M9

I expected yesterday a nice sunset due to a sharp drop in temperatures, so I took my M9 and SWC to one of my favorite photography locations, just outside Joe Patti's Seafood Store in Pensacola.

I will start out with the first images from the M9 and the original Nokton in Prominent mount.

My smugmug file: https://raid.smugmug.com/M9Voigtlaender5015/i-XtnqptD

It looked like this later on ...



I will post more images from the sunset in a few days.

The original Voigtlaender Nokton in Prominenet mount is a great lens overall. It is awesome for portraits, and it provides lower resolution images with digital cameras, which keeps more information on the image portions in the shades. It allows you to add a little contrast with PS and some added color, while the end results look great.

Raid,
Very nice images, as always! However, your girls are missing from them.

Which Nokton did you use, Prominent mount or LTM mount?

Thank you. I used the original Nokton that was made for the Prominent. Amedeo made me a custom adapter for Prominent to M.

The girls were out with their mom, so I drove alone there to take some photos.

The sunset was very beautiful. Ask the Pelican on top of the mast.

Very nice Raid, and the cooler skies always sets off the pic's for a little extra. Being a Hassey man; were you using Porta or Ektar in it?

Thanks. I may have used Portra in the SWC. I have not shown any results from the SWC yet. So far, all posted images here are from the M9.

These are the last images from the M9 series from that sunset.











The End .....

The light was changing quickly as the sun was setting, and I switched back and forth from vertical to horizontal images, plus, switching from pointing the lens at the West versus the East to capture different looking scenes with different light and colors. The last 40 images posted here had hardly any post-processing. This is how the M9 renders the images.

Thank you for taking the time to go over these images at my smugmug website. There were over 8,000 views yesterday alone.
