#4 - 3 pts  Doug A

 

#1 - 2 pts  Keith M

 

# 7 - 1 pt  Farnz

 

Damn good entries all round.

Awarding 1st, second and third is not indicative of the overall standard. Other entries, IMO, deserve equal merit.

First place with 23 votes .............. #4 "Tones at the push of a button." by Doug A

 

Second place with 13 votes ......... #12 "Leaning Tones of Melbourne." by erl

Pete.

I can only echo Petes comments and congratulate Doug A on the 'tone' of his winning entry.

Also very well done to Bataleur and mnutzer an Keith M for such a close duel with each other.

IMO, all entries are worthy and speaking for myself, participating is the reward.

Thanks to Pete for organizing it.

      Just got my M10 and have been somewhat disappointed by the colors. In some circumstances, they’re absolutely great. In others (and shooting situations which I frequently shoot - backlit subjects who have lighter skin tones), they fall apart when I do any serious color grading. I’ve attached a link for reference. Notice the majority of influence over the skin tones is determined by the purple slider. In my experience on professional Canon systems (as well as Fuji), skin tones are generally captured in the Oranges, Reds, and Yellows. On occasion, I’ve noticed them “bleeding” into the Purples/Magentas, but generally it’s an easy correction with a hue adjustment toward red in Lightroom. This has happened more on my Fuji gear than my Canon, which I thought was just a product of the XTRANS. 
      Images for reference. Note: I’ve increased each slider to 100 to illustrate the influence of the respective slider, not as an artistic decision. https://imgur.com/gallery/mFTvTGz
      I’ve had to do more “additive” color editing (color grading with added oranges/yellows in the mid tones) to get even close to the effect I desire to be consistent with my professional body of work, but it’s tedious and feels more like a workaround as opposed to simply a different process. 
      Is this a hallmark of these sensors? Has anyone else had an issue with skin tones merging into the purples? The issue here is that it doesn’t give me precise and consistent control over tonalities which are consistent with my other work. Not only that, but as opposed to adjusting a couple of sliders to produce the look, I’m adjusting literally three times more to try and get close and, eventually compromise, on the desired look. 
      Also, here is an attached photo with the exposure info as well as histogram illustrating that I’m shooting at base ISO, and exposed with the limitations of the M10 sensor in mind. 
      https://imgur.com/gallery/v2EPnGf
      I want to add that I’ve been shooting for over a decade. This certainly isn’t my first rodeo. The only thing left for me to try is making my own custom color profile, but in over a decade of shooting, this has never been a requisite to get the colors I want out of my photos. 
      Does the M10-R improve on any of these shortcomings?
      Also, I want to preempt against any comments telling me I’m just confused or apologetics from Leica koolaid mixers. I’ve read some responses on this forum before from some of them and they seem to be obstinately opposed to the notion that perhaps the sensors in these cameras aren’t as good. While DXOMark gives the M10 a higher overall score than my 6D, in my experience, the colors are more pliable. Finally, my artistic discretion is going to differ from yours. I have seen a lot of photos posted here in discussion which are also effectively SOOC, with minimal correction. I have a stylized look I go for, which requires flexible colors.

      Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 145th Barnack's Monthly theme,which was filled with more than 1,600 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 146th Barnack's Monthly theme for November 2020 is:
       Wood.
      This month's theme is any picture that includes wood or the word "wood".  For example, it could be a wooden house, a wooden bench, a wood carving, clogs, a wooden dashboard, a cartwheel, a forest, a wooden handle on a mangle, a soapbox cart, a wooden fence, a plywood shed, a balsa-wood aeroplane, a Mahogany dresser, an oak chest, the actor Edward Woodward, the Beatles' Norwegian Wood, sandalwood incense, Pinewood Studios, a wooden paling, wooden window frames, a wooden bird feeder, the actor Elijah Wood, woodland, a glade, a giant Sequoia tree, a ship's wooden slipway, St John's Wood, Brookwood cemetery, a telephone pole, an old telephone box, a picture frame, a wooden ornament - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free!  
      It would be a big 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.

      Most of us seem to be photographers as well as collectors.
      Show me your favorite lenses, old and new alike.
      I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio.
      Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.
