Thanks
 
Thanks for responding aperture64, and yes it was what caught my eye here but I chose the version with closer focus because the color and form of the mural were so vivid.....nor do I have f64 on the Leica lenses ;)

Ever since I was a kid I have loved the fish ladder at the locks.
It's a tough place to make a photograph. No flash allowed and pretty dark overall. A great place to take out of towner folks.

I walk around the Ballard Locks quite a bit, it is a great place all four seasons of the year. It was a spectacular summer the salmon runs have been large and long running. Those two were taken yesterday since I am working night shifts for a month and it was nice to be out and about during a weekday.

For the two shots above just set the aperture to wide open, f3.8, the M9 to AE and held the M9 tight against the railing on the level above the observation deck.

Nicely done....always fun to make use of railings, posts and 16 ounce glasses of ale!

I still love my M9.

I just got my M9-P yesterday! Here's one of the first shots from it, with my '59 50mm Summilux:

Luscious color! I have no doubt that someday we'll look back on these as fondly as we now do Kodachromes. Unique and wonderful. The B&W is pretty special as well.

coelacanth 09-28-2012 12:29

I just got my M9-P recently as well. Looking forward to shooting a lot with it in my Japan trip next week, but here is one with Elmar-M 50/2.8.

Great thread idea. Still loving mine. Chrome M9-P: it's like I have a digital M2. Love the colours. This is the 35 C Biogon at 800 ISO, by accident.

Also ISO 800, 25 Color Skopar, 1/15s.

Love that last Espresso bar shot, Richard.

Here another one of mine :

Richard G 09-28-2012 21:00

Thanks very much Icebear. I've enjoyed your shots lately too, that mural above and those great night shots at 1250 and even 1600 in colour.

This is back to ISO 160, 35 C Biogon again.

What a combo M9 and Biogon c35 Make . I'm completely smitten :o

It balances well. The Zeiss colour suits film very well - I was using Superia 200 a lot, and I really like the colours from the Zeiss lenses on the M9.

Black and white with the M9 is great too...ZM C Biogon 21:

The M9 can do cats, as the first page proved. Need the Nex or new M to focus beyond 100mm? Nope.


L1002052.jpg by Richard GM2, on Flickr

135 Tele Elmar at f4.

Anil Kalagatla 09-28-2012 22:37

Nice cat pic :-) I assume you had very little time to take this picture. How easy is it to focus with the 135mm?

Anil

M9-P with Summicron 50 (v5) in my dark apartment.

She doesn't stay still, but I guess I know her well enough to sense the timing.

Anil, she stayed a while there, a Russian Blue. The Tele-Elmar has a long focus throw and with so little use since it was made in the '70s it's a little stiff. Fast enough focus nevertheless I think. My enjoyment of that lens has been transformed by framing with the SHOOC finder.

Richard G 09-29-2012 00:17

50 C Sonnar. Manual exposure, for what would have been an in-camera automatic metering challenge.

I love the tonality of this. And those mountain shots are great. Welcome to the forum, I forgot to say earlier.

ChrisN 09-29-2012 03:46

M9 raw rather heavily processed in Lightroom. Summicron 35/2 ASPH.

Chris, an M Monochrom would be superfluous for you. Nice shot.

I loved my M9. Until it got stolen.. *sob*...

Thanks Richard. I'll admit I'm really liking the M9 raw files - very rich and flexible. The high contrast look is easy to achieve, while a soft low contrast appearance suits some subjects better.
