    Hi Folks,
    just got this shot today when I went for a walk. Taken on the NEX-7 with my old battered Leica M 90mm F2.8.
    Details: ISO 100, F8 @ 1/320th converted in LR to Tri-X using Exposure 3 software.

    Hope you like it.

    Pylon.

    any comments or criticisms appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Paul

    Hi Paul.
    Nice picture. Good composition. It's very good in B&W Tri-X simulating.
    What is the model of your Leica M? I have a Leica M Tele Elmarit 90mm f2.8.
    Cheers,
    Luiz

    The simulation's pretty good, I like the composition and framing. There's something quite stark and forebodding about the image I can't put my finger on. Nice capture Paul.

    Thanks everyone,
    Originally, I took the shot in colour but again found that B&W conversion gave it more drama and, to me, made the scene very stark.
    Over the course of time I'll go back and see if I can get the sun in the frame.....just need to check the positioning and timing!?
    Cheers,
    Paul

    Thanks Luiz,
    it's a rather well used Leica Elmarit-M 90mm f2.8. Absolutely brilliant lens!
    Cheers,

    Nice capture of an item of the industry I'm in. I like the processing.
