It's not often you get such a nice spread of rays. Well captured. :)

Very cool shot. Love the rays.

Very nice, Chris! Very strategic placement of the clouds on the horizon... how do you do that?:P

Thanks Al, Deeno and Rob :) Much appreciated
@Al - Luck. LOL... I was firing away while poor old Humayun was having a wardrobe meltdown with the film back on his Mamiya. The rays just popped and I've never seen him so desperate in trying to remove a crushed up roll of film and slam in another.

That turned out brilliantly. :)
Yes. That 120 back has been shelved. It's still got some Velvia 50 in it. I'm yet to drop off the rest of the stock from that morning for processing. In the next few days!

Thanks mate. Yup = I have a bunch of both B&W and colour to drop off this week too. 18 rolls of it. LOL

That's a fantastic result Chris.
That lens is super sharp and your Leica captures the colours beautifully.

Thanks so much Greg. I'm really enjoying the Leicas. I haven't picked up the 5D-II for months now. Makes me wonder if I've simply found my camera...

Well at least someone here uploads their pics to IIS instead of posting links. Love it mate.
27-05-2012, 10:44 PM
Thanks Barry, and yes, links aren't something I follow in preference to a locally hosted upload. On the flip side 200kb is pretty limiting too. Ah well, all's good...

Beautiful Chris, you got those rays perfectly!
27-05-2012, 10:51 PM
Thanks Mike :) A top spot eh?
Lovely work Chris
Definitely right place, right time.

Thank you Liz :)

Excellent work Chris, and yet another example of making the effort to be in the right place at the right time!

Stunning capture Chris.
29-05-2012, 10:41 PM
Nice camera man!!!
29-05-2012, 11:03 PM
Thanks all :)
@Chris - yes, you're absolutely right. 3:00am rises and a mad 80 minute dash across the city to get there well before dawn to set up. You don't do it - you don't get it. :thumbsup:
@Paul - Thanks. I'm looking at possibly offloading my 5D-II so that I can finance the new Leica M9 Monochrom when they are released for sale later in the year. A dedicated full frame black and white sensor with no bayer matrix and angled micro lenses. Yes PLEASE! :) Big dollars though. :( Then again, possibly the M10 when it is finally announced at Photokina. Gulp.... LOL
@Paula - Thank you Paula, I appreciate your kind words. :)
