  1. Back from a long road trip, and there were some nice photos posted I see. Thanks all. But now its time for...some more pics. I'll start from a photo taken on the trip in inland Mendocino county. A beautiful area of Northern California.

    M6, 15/4.5 CV Super-Wide Heliar ASPH, 400TMY-2, HC-110B

  3. I always like the perspective of looking from heavy shade well framed, into light.
    It works well in the first photo.

  8. Trying out the M10 in the "pretend Monochrom" mode with the 50/2 Summicron. Set to Raw and Jpeg and setting the Jpeg to Monochrome. Some slight editing, but not much. The jpegs look good, but have less latitude of course. Pretty neat to see the picture in monochrome on the screen.

  9. Hi Bill, are the wind turbines off the highway from the 580? Going towards (or away) from the Bay area? The landscape as presented looks like Mars :) The cloud are beautiful! Were you using a red filter?

  10. I was on I-8 about 30-45 minutes out from the AZ boarder checkpoint on the CA side (El Centro). No filter was used. The shot was only slightly under exposed, which helped bring out the clouds. The B&W conversion was done in Photoshop with the assistance of Nik. Film simulation used was Pan-X.

    Using the M-P 240 I usually like the post-processed B&W conversions in RAW better than color. I owned an M Monochrom (M9 version) and I much prefer the conversions from the M-P 240; they just have more "pop" to them. Needless to say, I sold the Monochrom not long after acquiring the M-P 240.

    The image below is pre-conversion to B&W.

    These Russian lenses are very much "hit and miss" this one was recently serviced and is a solid little performer.
