NO do not like the ass that owns Leica,
Would love to find anyone to take the other Leica's away forever.

Would a full size Leica Hater Blog better serve your needs?
That way,you would have a complete record of your Leica hater work and when people ask you questions,you can point them to a particular post.
You will get the recognition you deserve.

Sigh,there is absolutely no way to make everyone completely happy within the confines of this thread.
Especially when the content is mostly:
"Hi,I took another picture with my compact camera"
Sprinkled with the odd "good guy Leica" and "scumbag other model" post...
I enjoy being behind the camera and some people just want to look at neat pictures.

Photography is a hobby that seems to have hard lines drawn in the sand when it comes to brands,or in this instance even a particular model.
Beyond that,what these new digital compacts have shown me,is that photography has become much easier.
Lightroom has its place in photo touch up but much of the barrier to enter good photography is now gone.
I've used a variety of camera gear over the years (many brands) and only care to the extent that it is a tool to achieve a purpose.

Perhaps I should start a Street Photography thread to mitigate brand references.
Focusing on photographic style is what makes the professional emerge from the page.
Discussing the upsides and downsides of the new Leica M9-P,giving the reasons why you dislike it,is just not fun.

I suppose people are sick of everyone being a photographer.
Never mind,have a seat over there -while we go about our hive mind ways.
Photography is an art,a highly technical art.

Nice to hear you enjoy your D-Lux too!
Why not post a few of your 100,000+ Leica camera shots?

P.S.-the original full post from gshay was deleted,past 24 hours so the cache is deleted too.
The quote was snipped from a comparison to the Leica M9/Leica D-lux 5/Panasonic Lumix LX5 (owned them all?)
Actually,gshay was quite glowing about the D-Lux 5,too bad the OP was scrapped,I still would have preferred some photos...

Much easier on the eye than those scary old man photos you worked on...

When I look at her photo,I almost expect the hands to be raised at any moment above the head,clapping while a rhythm is clicked out in a pair of chunky heeled Flamenco shoes...

The old man is my father-in-law aka her father.

Yar !
I figured as much,LFF.
Enjoyed reading up on the Dave Hill style and Dragan effect.
Both have the potential for creating some alarming looks when compared to the original.

Indeed. My takes on their style are no real match but it's fun trying.

 

The real trick with Hill's style is having a super high resolution camera. Dragan is more of a mystery. I haven't seen anyone else match his style.

My sister has the LX5 and I love how it is. It's the one we use when we go out and I don't want to bring my bulky 40D. The leica one is very pretty but no $$$ for that :[

Yup....I always have my LX5 handy. It sure beats carrying around my big DSLR. As a result, I end up taking more pictures with my LX5 than with my DSLR.

Early kick off,hopefully to a great summer,nice little fundraiser just down the road from my place.

Signs of summer,Harleys on the walk down to the park entrance.

All the food booths were local restaurants and caterers doing BBQ pork ribs,along with some of their signature menu items.

Sat in front of the old Bandshell,had a beautiful Blonde girl to my left,took a couple telephoto shots from my seat,walked up to the sound people to check in on their gear and grab a cold beer.
The guy with the Billy Jack hat on,arms outstretched at the bottom of the band,was comically dancing around doing inebriated helicopter pirouettes.

A few shots from a recent trip to Vegas during some "off time"...

 

 

For this one, just took a jacket and placed it around the flower. A bit of photoshop level adjustments and bam....
