Today was the second full day of collecting photos from around Hong Kong. Yesterday the Ricoh GR shined along with the Leica M9. Today was the Sony’s turn in the spotlight. Since I planned on shooting the majority of the day in the bright, sunny streets I screwed on a 2-stop neutral density filter so that I could take advantage of shooting wide open at f/2 on the RX1r. Like yesterday, the Leica images were taken with the 50mm Summicron.
All of the black and white image were converted from raw files in Lightroom and treated in Silver Efex Pro 2 with either the Ilford Delta 100 Pro or the Kodak 100 TMAX Pro film simulations. Both of these simulations are very similar in that they are high contrast, with strong blacks, but the Ilford renders a slightly brighter image compared to the Kodak convertion.

Very nice. Disregarding cameras, I sure do like the number 3 image with the people walking, the slow sign painted on the road and the sense of scale. Great shot. And my other favorite is the woman walking up the stairs. All great shots. (Amazing what you can do alone when the focus is purely on the task at hand.). Nice photos Steve.
Thank you. Taking photos while on a family vacation can be fun and sometimes productive, but there’s a big difference in intensity when photography’s your only focus.
