I spent some time at an old unoccupied farm not too far from my home this morning. Broken, dense clouds scudded over, making the light change constantly.

Some more Composer observations:

- Again and again I can get the focus right the first time. This is easier (for me) to focus than the Leica M8.

- As soon as I get used to locking in the bend my shots will be even more consistent. When I forget to lock it's easy to knock off my setting when I let the camera swing from my shoulder

- Very easy to get filters on and off. Crank the focus all the way counterclockwise and the threads are right up front.

These shots are all at f/4.0 with the wide angle adapter.

These are great... Great colors and contrast. The other recent ones were as well. I will have to get a composer soon. My keyboard can't sustain the amount of drool you pictures are causing.
Don't you just hate power lines? I have so many cool shots that I had to discard due to those black lines going across the sky.

Sometimes power lines drive me crazy and I'll actually spend the time necessary to clone them out if it means making the photo work. But in the case of that second shot they didn't bother me much. In fact, they sweep from the barn at almost the same angle as the LBC's radial blur and bring the eye over to the tree, then your eye settles on the small building across the road. I like how they help lead the eye around the photo.

These are just tremendous images.

Thanks for sharing this series. They would look great hanging on the wall!

Bob,

Every image in this set is absolutely beautiful. I had trouble picking my favorite, but did finally pick #2. Then I read the other posts noticing they talked about power lines. I went back and THEN I saw the power line in #2. I hadn't even noticed them the first time. I still love that image. Oh -- what is taking so long for my Composer and Optics Kit to be delivered -- I think my order is #15!?!

Thanks everyone for the compliments. I shoot with other lenses and cameras but will come back to the LB when I feel in a rut or uninspired. It almost always breaks that spell.
