He looks like a -very- wise Swami.
Actually, he was just very sad at that moment.
Oh dear–I’m sorry to hear that!
One of my all time favorites.
Mine too Guy… thank you for your appreciation.
My apologies Peter—I neglected to echo Guy’s sentiments: It is definitely a beautiful image with impressive tonality.
Mark, I appreciate you letting me know – no apology necessary!
beautiful, Peter. superb use of natural light pattern. am i detecting a few modifications in your shooting style? its always been great to share your way of seeing, whether with a leica or a nikon, but this seems a different direction. perhaps a little more “formal”, tho i dislike that term, but always thoughtful and sensitive. those d__m medium format sensors encourage a slower approach but with the qualities that you, Peter, bring to play, the cameras are truly rewarding. thanks for sharing these.
Thanks Henry, that’s very kind of you! You’re right, the camera definitely influences the workflow.
I can’t really take grab shots with the 50R, because the focus won’t cope under those circumstances. But there are occasions, such as in the photo above, where I want to take a more contemplative shot, and I know that in these cases the sensor will reward the effort.
Consider the GFX100. It’s a big camera, but eliminates the deficiencies of the R, in terms of speed/spontenaeity….I am sure this tech will trickle down to the 50R down the road…
It looks like the GFX100 has “trickled down” to someone 😉
oh by the way, if you ever get the chance, try the Voigländer 58 on the GFX, its magical.
Thanks for the tip Marc! Do you have any examples using this lens?
here for example :
is has some slight vignetting but is easily corrected in post.
have a great weekend, and enjoy your new camera.
Thank you Marc!
Marc, is this the lens you have?:
Marc, wow this is indeed a great combo!!! Great shots!!! Painterly DOF! Thank you for sharing!! 🙂
i dont know if you kept any leica lenses, but when im willing to use the electronic shutter (ugh) and crop to square format, the 50 summilux 1.4 is very nice on my x1d with an adaptor. im sure the voigtlander would be too.
Thanks Henry! I’ve heard that too but I sold everything, so no M lenses for me.
Bt the way, great shot
Thank you Ashwin!
One of your best ))) I LOOVVVE IT ( although your son is sad if I understood well )
Btw, He will love tis capture in the futur for sure ….
Thank you very much dear Hugues.
