Field of dreams.

Favourite, Inspiration, Leica 50mm Summilux ASPH f/1.4, Leica M9(P)/M-E (CCD Lives!), Portrait, Teaching point, The Beautiful Game

I resisted the temptation to crop away the top and bottom portions and present this as a pseudo-panoramic horizontal strip… something about the original image (as presented here) appears very surreal, very much like a “dream”.  Or perhaps a diorama.

  1. I like the “Dreamy Look” from your Summilux @1.4 I use a Heliopan Vario ND filter in bright light because I like this look with the foreground bokeh.

    1. Thanks Jeroen! The “dreamy” look is secondary to shooting at f/1.4. The ND filter is used to cut down on the light so that I can shoot wide open (the M9 shutter goes up to 1/4000 max… without an ND filter, the photos at f/1.4 on a bright day would be overexposed – even if shooting at the maximum shutter speed).
