Thank you, Benjamin. Well for me it's a landscape with a horizon. In reality, it's part of a wall.

bk1970. I must echo Benjamin's praise. It's a rare skill you have to pick out those abstracts. I bet they look glorious printed big.

Thank you, JJ, you're too kind! Yeah, I think it's in their nature to be fairly big, and treated more like paintings, not photographs.

Great stuff, bk. I don't have a dp so I'm butting in here but you're inspiring me to try some abstracts, which is something I've never done.

I've been wanting to experiment with your style, bk, but I haven't gotten out to shoot this week. I just snapped this offhand. The 50 was nearly long enough for the frame I needed (so it's well-cropped). But I liked the dead, grey pallor and the tree hiding between the buildings. It's not desaturated by anything more than the 'neutral' color setting.

Went out shooting today; too sunny and pretty to pass up. I found it impossible to use the rear lcd screen, so I was glad I had an optical viewfinder. Very much like shooting film, as I couldn't see pictures until getting home. Nothing special:

I have been experimenting a lot w/ the monochrom mode on this camera. Here is a set from the dp1m. Since the new 1.04 fw update and the spp support of raw b&w, I really really like the monochrom shots. This set was all shot at 4th street Berkeley.

Curious if people like or dislike the OOF effect (done in camera) on the first shot?

Not sure if I like or dislike it right now.

I actually like the flower shot the best.. The graffiti like shot for its color is interesting...

Now that I think about it, when my wife and I were in Australia about 11-12 years ago, isn't most of the canopy pretty dense w/ not a lot of light coming thru?

Your first picture gave me that same feeling. This one has a much more inviting feeling to it.

Me neither (not sure)!

The texture on the graffiti wall is amazing.

Incredible! Did you use AML-2 Close up filter for that shot?

This one's with a bit of crop

Louis, the relatively dark ceiling area in that image you posted, which I like very much, leads me to pose a question. Under similar conditions (when there is a difference of at least 3 stops in the scene), I find the DP Merrills sometimes produce strange color casts. Have you noticed this, and if yes, what is your work-around? Thanks, Jon.

So, I'm finding that when I take daytime skyscapes with clouds, I get a very noticeable green cast in parts of the sky.

Trying to explain the aurora borealis in broad daylight at such a southern latitude is not how I want to pass my time.

The best I could do in PP (didn't really have a heart for it) was to use control points in Viveza to lower the green locally. The result is a more magenta/blue cast.

I find these results unacceptable. And I really really want to be able to shoot skyscapes.

Note: I don't see a green cast in other shots, only in skyscapes. And in skyscapes, it almost always appears.

Jon

To be honest i am slightly color blind. I maybe able to c all the colors but subtle shades of differences in the same color group, I can't tell the difference.

So that first shot u posted I can't c the problem. But the second one I did spot the magenta cast u mentioned.

There was a writeup from a blogger I posted a while back that showed that the wb algo is only slightly different for dp1 and do2 but quite different for dp3. Wb would affect more the cast or tone of the whole picture.

I'll post a whole series of photos with the green cast in sunlit cloud/skyscapes in another thread, Gary.

Back to our regularly scheduled program!

This is the window casement in the glow of sunset. Very minimal post done on this image. (just a little bit of curves).
