This was taken about 2 weeks ago in my home town using my Leica M7 fitted with a 35mm Summarit f2.5, and using Fuji Neopan 400CN film. I hope you like it.

Very nice, but perhaps stronger if you mover her off center by cropping from the right.

Maybe but then to keep the 3:2 ratio it would crop too tight. I am a great one for 'what I saw is what you get' I am afraid and seldom crop.

That suggests either cropping some from top/bottom at the same time, or Focusing, hold the focus, and reframe.

In a perfect world you are right, but street photography is not a perfect world.

I've found one can train oneself to reframe in a fraction of a second longer.  Failing that, consider not being purist on cropping.  One of my NetGeo photographer friends never does any post processing, and her original images often have tilted horizons, etc., but the very pale people at NatGeo, working in a windowless basement, seldom seeing sunlight make those changes for her before publication.

      Hello there!
      I have a slight but not to severe problem. I've noticed that my Leica M7 is not able to read the DX code of these two specific films: Fujifilm Superia X-Tra 400 and Fujifilm Fujicolor C200. For these two films I get the ISO value of 5000 and 3200 which are obviously wrong. For example, Fujifilm Pro 400H is working perfectly fine, the ISO detection works without problems. Further I tried several other films like Kodak Ektar 100, Kodak Portra 160 and 400, Ilford FP4+ 125 and so on... and the dx detection worked perfectly fine on every single one of these films. I compared the working ones with the "malfunctioning" films and the only difference I noticed is that the black paint in the dx code is a kind of green, it's not a perfect black, more like a darkish green, definitely not a true black. Could this maybe be the reason?
      The thing is, I've sent my camera to Leitz for a grand- overhaul just 3 weeks back. They changed and renewed a lot of parts including thr DX- reader so the camera is like brand new. Unluckily I've no clue if it had the same problem before it went to Leitz because I've not shot one of these films before.
      It would be a great help if somebody has an answer or maybe a similar problem!

      Regards
      Alex

      I haven't posted for quite some time because being a street photographer when there is virtually nobody on the streets during these crazy times is difficult. This was taken prior to the time when we knew the term COVID-19 in 2017.

      I am so pleased that another step towards normality has happened, and I can again sit and drink coffee at my favourite cafe Mettricks Guildhall in the centre of Southampton. Leica M240 + 35mm Summarit-M f2.5   Gerry
