My first post here, three CL images.

Hello everyone, this is my fisrt post and hopefully not my last. I know that the Leitz Minolta Cl dosen't have the Leica name, but I'm hoping that it's allowed.

 

Below are three images I I took while hiking at Carpinteria State Beach in CA. I shot it with a Leitz Minolta CL using a 40mm Summicron lens and Kodak Ultra Color film. Black and White converted using NIK Silver Efex Pro with Photoshop.

 

Thanks for looking

Maurizio- Welcome to the Forum. Lovely series, I like #1 and especially #2. Looks like they've been painted on a canvas, beautiful!

 

I use the same combination; Nik Silver Efex with Photoshop for my B&W conversions.

Looking forward to seeing more photographs from you.

Welcome! I agree with Mike. I especially like the contrast (but could get by with a little less grain).

PS, don't be shy about a very nice Leica-heritage camera & lens. And folks post lots of pictures here shot with 'Panaleicas' - Panasonics with Leica-branded lenses.

Need to make a correction, These images were shot using Ilford 3200 film and were developed and printed manually in a darkroom. Theses are scans of the prints.

 

Thanks for all your comments.

Welcome. Excellent series. Love the grain and tonality.

Hi watch your mid tones they are somewhat muddy and overprocessed, most probably in the digital conversion

      The optical and mechanical elements of the lens are in excellent condition, with clear glass and perfectly smooth focusing. The retractable sunshade has some minor damage but that does not interfere with the optical or mechanical operation of the lens, that work superbly.
      The sale also includes an original Leica R-M Adapter ROM, #14642, in new condition, as well as a 60mm Leica Uva filter to use with the lens.
      This lens has an exceptional optical resolution and color rendition.

      Hey all,  was curious about how the technical aspects of the Zeiss Biogon lenses ( 25mm or 28mm ) would match up with the CL + adapter. Im between either of those or the TL 23mm Summicron. Main use cases being travel and street photography.
      The image render from the Zeiss seems almost better than the 23mm but worried that it wont perform as well on the CL vs a dedicated lens. 
      Has anyone used both on a CL or T? 
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi, does somebody own a Leica Summicron-M 1:2/28 Edition "Safari" or has seen real life pictures? I’d love to see additional pictures of the lens except the one official photography that’s spread all over the web.

      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.
