Well, I could say that you must be channeling David Lean and Freddy Young in the best way possible because this is so richly cinematic. You deserve an Academy Award nomination for your patience in stalking the golden hour of the day with your Leica. Edwin Church comes to mind in the grand landscape tradition.

I was rather thinking of Andrew Lesnie

(Hobbits)

 

Wonderfull moment, composition, etc etc. Deserves to hang very large on a wall. Doesn’t seem an easy print job however.

Another 'gold star' photograph! Beautiful scenery and light.

 

Thank you very much Mark, much appreciated

 

I agree with Mark.

 

Thank you Stuart, most kind

Thank you Otto, again I am humbled by the comparison!

 

I think that Ernest's point is so important.  It is clear that Vieri takes his time to find the best composition and has the patience to wait for the perfect light.

 

Mark, you just mentioned the two things that, for me, are necessary for a successful photograph: composition and light, pretty much in equal measure - the first, in the landscape, is in good percentage up to us (not as much as in the studio, of course). For the second we can be as prepared as we'd like, but in the end we have to make do with what nature offers us: very often we have to wait days for that perfect light, and even on a good day we have to be prepared because hen it happens it lasts for some very short moments... and this unpredictability is definitely a big part of the interest in landscape, for me

 

 

Another wonderful image, perfect composition, cloud patterns and of course the light....'gold star' indeed. Also the foreground mountain slope (on the right of frame) 

retains just the right amount of subtle detail. 

 

Thank you very much indeed for your kind comment, I am glad you enjoyed it

 

Best regards,

Yes especially in Scotland the special light moments can be very short. You can also have two totally different spheres and landscapes at the same spot in a few minutes.

 

It's the beauty of Atlantic weather, which I love

 

Best regards,

Thank you Neil, even if I am not sure who Virie is 

 

Seriously though, Scotland is wonderful, can't wait to go back next spring for more!

 

Best regards,

 

Vieri

      Hello! I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like there is no generic open thread for landscape photography. There are a couple of Australian and New Zealand landscape threads, sunsets. And many specific threads containing the word "landscape." But I didn't find one more generic like the "I like film" thread (to say one).
      So, I thought it was interesting to have all an inspiring open thread for general landscape photography. Admins, please correct me if I'm wrong, edit the title. I'm IN anyway to be inspired by landscape photos taken with M cameras (digital and film). 🙂
       
      I start with this picture I took yesterday during the super full moon night. It was very bright.

      I have a question about choosing the right 28 mm M lens for landscape photography. If it has been asked in other posts already, I apologise in advance.
      Background
      I have decided to buy a 28mm for my M240. It will be used for landscape photography almost exclusively.
      For the first time in my life, I am leaning towards an Elmarit ASPH. However, I always have this nagging inner voice telling me, that Summilux and Summicron are the only ways to go no matter the situation.
      So before buying, I want to make sure that I will not be compromising on any key aspects important to me with an Elmarit. And since I live in a place where trying different lenses before buying is not an easy alternative, I turn to all you skilled Leica experts in here for advice.
      My needs
      I will be shooting at apertures between f/8 - f/11 most of the time. And I will only rarely be focusing on objects very close. So I am not that concerned about bokeh (which I guess is not that relevant for a wide-angle lens anyway).
      The same thing goes for color rendering, since I’m shooting digital and will be postprocessing the RAW files anyway.
      However, I am very interested in achieving good sharpness from corner to corner. And I am also concerned about the handling of lens flare.
      Question
      Do you think the Elmarit ASPH will be the right choice for my purpose? Or will the 28mm Cron or Lux in any of their incarnations perform noticeably better under the above circumstances?
      Reading lots of reviews, both the Cron and the Lux obviously outperforms the Elmarit for low light situations. But will there be differences in image quality, sharpness and flare handling when stopping down to f/8 - f/11?
      Any input will be much appreciated. Thanks!
      - Peter.
