Spectacular! The person (?) on the right in the first one really scares me! I am thinking along the lines of cellison; if these aren't your best, they are pretty darn close. Wow.

Thanks Chris! That's quite a statement. :smile:

I saw one of those go by:>)))))
Heh. They do all the time Gale!

Night of the Living ...very spectral of you, Chris!
Kinda makes you want to stay in at night... :eek:

Better get this out of the way...

I see dead people...

Very nice!
So does my camera on 1/8th. Thanks Ed.

Thank you Greg. You mean the dog-faced thing at the table? I know.

Thanks Ned!

nice grain

Thank you Nils! It's what you get when you under-develop by 3 stops, then scan for all you can get! :redface::redface::redface:

Amazing pictures Chris!!

Allow me to be indiscreet, but did you do this on purpose or was it by chance?

Thanks Gav! Both. I purposely used a long shutter time (from 1/4 to 1/30) in order to have plenty of subject and camera movement. I wanted an abstraction of moving people, rather than sharp images of specific people. Plus I was practicing Ned's reverse panning technique. On that level everything went as planned.

The chance aspect is due to an accident in development. I wanted to pull this roll by a stop and a half (delta3200, exposed at iso 1200ish) but pulled the development three stops instead to iso 400. Just dumbness on my part. But that is why these have such pronounced grain. I like the technique, though. I'm sure I was supposed to do it here. :Crunk:

Wow Chris! Love them. straight from a nightmare, indeed!
Thanks Matthew! I am encouraged that you see that.

i'll probably have a hard time trying to follow in your steps...the images have appeal
When I get to the point that I can use darkness half as well as you are using lightness in your current work, I will feel good about it. Thanks.

Whoah! It now looks like a 3500$ MP!
Leicas are so great, heh Chris? I'm totally addicted that's for sure.

No more stinky heavy DSLRs and SLRs dictating my mind, time and energy on trips. When I look back I can't believe how I did without such a simple camera.

Looking good Chris. People probably think it's some rinky dink toy camera.

It's funny Ned, even my D80 seems big and clunky to me. Although I do like my little Nikon EM and with the 28mm, 50mm and 105mm ais it's not much to tote around on a trip. But I am loving the rf!

Um... I like 'em. Arresting shots. Keep flogging that creative streak.
... What have you done with the real Stephen!?!??? :Unsure::BigGrin::Crunk:

Thanks. I will!

So much for stealth security!

I can't say that I don't have cravings. The recoil and sound of an F5. The IR handling and precision of the OM1. ...

But you are right about that freedom thing. Leica is so intuitive. I'm gonna try to go all summer just using 400 speed film with it (and a couple digital cameras... :Whistle: ) As cameras go, the m4p's got Less is More down.
