Taken yesterday, after I decided we should break out of the prison that is Winter.
Thinking out-loud/on-line, and sharing one of my edits.
Generally speaking, I dislike making digital look like film. If that was my goal, I’d just shoot film.
However, in light of the comment(s) that followed the first version of this image, I’m curious to know how this version is received. In addition to not-so-subtly adding grain, I subtly played with the contrast (both local and global). The end result is less perfect, but possibly more aesthetically pleasing.
You tell me.
Here I am on the receiving end of my own Leica M-E, courtesy of Nick Devlin.
Nick was checking out my gear yesterday. He doesn’t realize it yet, but he’s been re-infected with Leica Fever.
It’s kind of like Saturday Night Fever, but with more dancing — if you know what I mean.
(There is no cure, my friend.)

The world’s longest-running (and most intense) Open Letter to Leica has reached a milestone:
It’s true, 400 photographers, enthusiasts, and artists agree: we love CCD!
Specifically, we believe that the CCD sensor — at base ISO — offers superior image quality.
We also believe that an updated CCD sensor in a future Leica M camera would be in keeping with Leica‘s philosophy of providing out-of-the-mainstream elegant yet powerful photographic tools for discerning photographers.
So help keep the pursuit of high image quality alive by allowing CCD to develop and thrive.
Keep the momentum going! Encourage others to PLEASE SIGN THIS LETTER.
