Test - I am trying to find where to post images. They go missing from this series, but are obviously somewhere because I get email about them

You posted each image as a new thread, not as posts in this image thread.  You can find them at the following links (unless the moderators move things around)

You also posted two copies of each within this thread.  I merged each one with its duplicate.

Thank you. If they are not posted in the appropriate place, please go ahead and remove them. As you can see, I have much to learn about posting correctly on this forum....

Tried just now and I'm still limited to the earlier/original 1.95 Mb, should I be expecting to be allowed 2.4 Mb (assuming kB is a typo)?

Yes MB, sorry. The higher limit is for sponsoring members v

When I saw the title of this I thought, Nah, not going to work, but it does.  Great shot.

Thank you, I wondered too at the time but the IQ of the Q2M seems to do it justice. I upload PNG files as they are not lossy.

As you can work out (backlighting intensity changes) the sun is low down over to the right. One day I'll try to get there to catch the sun behind the halo top centre, I think it's do-able. Timing would be be key. Opportunity too as in these Covid-19 times (despite being in the only tier 1 zone on the UK mainland) the church is only open occasionally, I don't want to disturb any actual worshippers. Getting the sun to actually shine of course:-| Probably even more keystone distortion. A tall stepladder would help but would be too intrusive and IAC I'm not too steady or good with heights.

Nice:-) You get sunshine over there... I particularly like the tones & textures captured in your 'leaning' shot. Wot... no tumbleweed!? Landscape beyond is relatively treeless - windy?

Thanks - yes, eastern oregon is known as the high desert - an immense eroded plateau, made of volcanic flows and ashes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Oregon

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Desert_(Oregon)

I live on the wet side, west of the cascades - dividing volcanic mountain range, but love to visit the area - it's amazing, often sunny, from 100F in the summer to to single digits in the winter

lol - yes, they do  exist, but further south, and trees do exist far apart - or in relatively small forests ( not dense, and often not very tall due to climate and elevation

That area in particular is loaded with wind mills everywhere  - see pic on page 2 (this thread) - mostly free range cattle farmers, back from the settlers day, homestead times and failed gold rush runs

Amazing shot. Is this full frame or did you have to crop?

Nicely done, although it makes me cringe to look at them. The tonal scale is very rich. Even with the bright light shining into your mouth the highlights were not blown out.

This is actually full frame.  I didnt even have to straighten it.  I really "try" not to crop to be honest...that being said I wont toss out a photo if I can save it by cropping, but yes, this is the full 28mm.  I had to chase those birds around for like 30 minutes to get this!

It was time well spent. The result is very much worth it.

I understand your point about not cropping, however, I don't think I'd be concerned about it with the Q2M. Part of the reason Leica put that sensor in the camera was to allow for cropping.

Nice shots.  If you don't mine me asking, where in Eastern Oregon?  I live in Eastern Washington, similar climate and features.  These seem a bit dark to me.  Is it my monitor or did you make them dark like that?  I love exploring old settlements like these.
