    As we're approaching the end of February, somehow I've managed to keep my PAD going on my blog. Here's one I took yesterday before leaving the hotel we were staying. Ricoh GXR with Leica Summicron-C 1:2/40mm

    Very nice Duane. Nice light, shapes, colors, reflections, etc. It all really works together very well.

    There's only a few occasions depending on the light where it was hard focusing. Wide open can be a challenge with F/2.0 to get exact focus. But then I'm not shooting sports or fast moving children either.

    Often I'm closing down and using zone focusing too.

    I have the Leica Elmarit 90mm 2.8 on my list or the Rokkor 90 f/4.0 for a little more reach. I see the Voight 75 in my future too along with their 15mm.

    Those are some amazing colors there Duane!!! Lots of depth too! Straight out of the camera JPG's?

    I have the Voigtlander 75/2.5 on the screwmount. It's an excellent lens on the M9!!! It's cheap too (relatively speaking to the Leica and Zeiss counterparts). I haven't tried out the Voigtlander 75/1.8 yet.

    I'm a NIK plugin guy so I ran this one thru Color Efex Pro and used the detail extractor filter along with the warming filter. I liked how I could pull out the pattern in the wall paper and I did add a bit of saturation to the colors.
