The 'Pipes' band played a nice selection of Irish and Scottish music. The lighting seemed to favor a little too much blue, or maybe that impression is driven by the costumes. --- I've tried the photo of the church from the lot 2 blocks away many times, and never kept any, due to the clutter in the parking lot. This time I cropped more of the irrelevant stuff from the bottom, and I think it looks a little weird, but I really wanted to have this view, so I'll see how I like it down the road.

Leica X2 Paul Smith edition, f5.6, 1/320 handheld, ISO 200.

The colors are quite nice on both images. The church looks fine, but I might have cropped it a lot more... Perhaps take out the pole and everything to the right...

Yeah, it was a weird thing to begin with. I might work on it some more.

Leica M8, CV35 f1.4 MC. This is one of my favourite images, taken within a few week of owning my first rangefinder. I like that it is unfocused!

Hurricane evacuation from Charleston SC - this image was taken through a hotel window in Greensboro NC, 300 miles distant. It was grey, very wet, and the image quality suffered from the combination of effects.

A couple of street scenes, one a drawing on the side of an alley next to a door, easy to miss, looks like Val Kilmer (not sure). The actors were working on a commercial of some kind, moving down the street pretty quickly.

really like the zm25mm shot in b&w. can you describe what you like/dont like about that lens? it has a great reputation. i decided on the new hollywood 28/2 for my pentax, and i love it and am interested in how the 25 compares. im sure its more of a flat field lens, but it seems to have some pop as well...do you note character differences at f2 vs other apertures?

I love this lens and keep it on the M240 for travel. I really like the starbursts it can create. My only dislike is that it can sometimes make things appear somewhat unreal in a way that I can't quite put my finger on. If you use the lens profile in Lightroom it can really throw out framing for architecture though as it corrects.
