Wonderful work Vince and yes I agree about out of this world stuff happening in NM. The light there is just amazing.
Hamburg exhibit. All the images in the exhibit were shot with the MM and 35 Summilux FLE.

A few photos from the opening. It was quite humbling. The US Consul General Rick Yoneoka spoke as well as several others. Professor Achilles is in the photo below.

Here is a review. You can translate it in Google Translate. Looks like the reviewer gave the exhibit 4.5 stars out of 5.

Congratulations again Allen. They look great. What size are the prints and how did you print them or have them printed?

Thanks Marty - shot with the 246, ISO 640, and I was using my Canon 85/1.5 (that big heavy LTM lens) at between f/2 and f/2.8.

Thnaks Marty.

24 were 8X12 and 5 were 11X17. I pinted them here. Ink jet prints on Moab Lasal Luster. They(in Hamburg) had the frames. I sent them the prints and they matted them and framed them.

It would have been way to expensive to send matted prints. It was expensive to send just the prints. The show and my travel were all underwritten.

My last exhibit here in Chicago (last June) the prints were all 12 X 18 in 20 X 24 frames. That is the way I would prefer it to have been but the gift horse and all that. But it all turned out great.

Allen

Just got a super-duper Leica accessory in the mail today and of course tested it out on my loving wifey:


Reading Riley 2019
by Vince Lupo, on Flickr

I'm using my 65mm f/3.5 Elmar, but instead of the standard Visoflex III, I just picked up a Camcraft Z-Housing made by Norman Goldberg (Don's father). He made 10 or less of this version of the Visoflex with the Pellix mirror back in the 1960's. An amazing device, and it doesn't seem like there's any image degradation (though I should probably do a side-by-side test to fully compare).

I do not go oft through this thread because ...I do not need another camera and this thread could be dangerous !

But I have to say that when I visit this thread I find beautiful images, strong and interesting both form the pure visual aesthetic and the content.

Congrats to everyone posting photos here!

Don't think there's any way to improve upon this shot. A real beauty.

Thank you, Vince!
Interestingly, I took and edited that image in December 2017. I always thought "it`s good but something is off, missing". Well, going from 3:2 to 16:9 ratio was the key!

Just picked up a 125mm f/2.5 Hektor lens. Really a neat lens in its design.

When I got it I thought the focus was really weird -- if you look at this shot you'll see what I mean:

Wide open at f/2.5 on the Monochrom 246:

125 Hektor Test1
by Vince Lupo, on Flickr

It almost looked like something from a 1930's Summar or a 73mm Hektor wide open. Plus it didn't want to focus at infinity. I sent it to the Camera Wiz himself, Frank Marshman, and he gave it the overall spit'n'polish. At first he couldn't figure out why it was focusing the way it was. But he finally came to the conclusion that perhaps - just perhaps - the rear element had been installed backwards by a previous repair person. He tried that and.....


125 Hektor Test2
by Vince Lupo, on Flickr

Yeah just a bit of a difference! So now the lens focuses perfectly, infinity is now where it should be, and all is right with the world. Of course the photos are likely going to be a lot more boring than when the rear element was backwards!

Working remotely at our Canadian wilderness property -- not sure if these are too dark, too contrasty or not, but we'll give it a try. I'm sure I'll have to work on them again when I'm back in front of my large screen computer.

All taken with the wonderful 35/2 goggled V1 Summicron, all at about f/2.8:
