A night on the town, Part 2.

The reddish skin rendering may make you believe this was shot with a Leica M240, but she was in fact sitting in front of a large illuminated red sign.

So now I know how to achieve the M240 look, with respect to skin tones anyway.

However, I don’t know how to produce the muddy rendering of the CMOS-crippled Leica M240, as all I can get out of my Leica M9/M-E are those lovely CCD crisp files with superior tonality and colour reproduction, at base ISO.

For those of you who haven’t already done so, perhaps you may be interested in signing My Open Letter to Leica.

(over 280 signatures so far…)

The Log Ride at Centre Island, Toronto.  Taken yesterday.

It pains me to see summer slipping away.  But it pains me more to think that this may have been the last year the kids will want to go to this place.  They’re getting bigger, and the rides are looking smaller.

Time marches on.
