Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 143rd Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with more than 1,650 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme. Also, thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month by generously posting their pictures and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us! The 144th Barnack's Monthly theme for September 2020 is: Parallel lines. This month's theme is any picture that includes parallel lines but they must remain equidistant over their length. It could be one pair of parallel lines, many parallel lines, straight parallel lines, curved parallel lines, short parallel lines, long parallel lines, railway lines, lines on a wardrobe, leaded window panes, lines on a sports pitch, parallel lines on the side of an ocean liner, parallel lines formed by paving slabs, aircraft launch lines on an aircraft carrier, twin vapour trails in the sky, parking bay lines in a carpark, rugby goal posts, swimming lanes, double yellow lines following a curved kerb, the bars in a Rolls Royce grill, the parallel circular lines around a porthole, the rungs in a ladder, the styles in a ladder, the steps in a staircase, a run of flagpoles outside a large hotel, the fountain display outside the Bellagio in Las Vegas, shelving in a supermarket, an album by Blondie, a line of poplar trees beside a country lane, the furrows in a ploughed meadow, lines of Lavender bushes in Provence - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free! It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view. Members have asked if we'd very kindly name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's just helpful. The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it! Everybody's welcome to contribute, any interpretation, any number of posts, pictures that have been posted on the forum before, any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Leica. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "Thanks" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post. Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme. Note: Moderator Pop has very kindly assembled links to all of the past Barnack's Monthly threads as a single archive that can be found here: Barnack's Monthly Index. Thank you, Pop! Pete.
Not sure if this has been covered here, but just got the M9 last night. In doing sample shots I noticed that a short little vertical line appears near center (see second photo) of image when zoomed in at 100%. I first thought this was a pixel problem but then it goes away with different shots of same framing. Then comes back. Regardless of SD card or camera setting... almost random. Latest firmware. Thoughts? Should I return camera for exchange? Thanks.
