Sometimes, things can be a bit odd (or off - well, unpredictable, really). I still kind of like the result ...
(I was framing through the gap at pretty close range - paralax is impossible to correct at this distance by simply guessing ...)
Thank you; I do appreciate the comparison - but it also tells me that with shots from this amazingly good old camera, I have to watch my sliders in post so as not to overdo things when it comes to contrast, vibrancy and saturation. If anything, the M8's files need a soft touch. I honestly didn't push things in this case, though - yet I may have added a slightly warmer tint than necessary.It has been stated that Kodak formulated the KAF-10500 CCD used in the M8 to give the same colors as Kodachrome. I've shot Kodachrome, Kodachrome II, Kodachrome-X, Kodachrome 25 and Kodachrome 64. The above shot looks like Kodachrome 25. Just had to narrow it down a bit.
