Last 2 are great and I think the harsh whites really work for those sorts of photos. Great stuff.

I took time to read through and consider those comments by Elle Perez in your recent post. 14&15 are standouts for me. Why? When I taught at photography to 1st year students at Uni. I stressed the following every picture has an entry and exit point, think of photography as a visual narrative and photography in an investment in time and effort. If you get one image on a roll of 36 your doing well, it was B&W work.

You can train people to look & see but its about how they apply that looking which produces memorable images. Now with digital its easier to capture moments in their immediacy as its just a matter of seeing point click. No need for developing, just a process of editing.

I think also what do you want the image to say, is important and this is not looking at images as a text as their not. At their best an image is evocative in bringing forth an emotive or affective response in the viewer.

I also used to tell students to get books on photographers work forget the textural analysis just study the image and see what they say. One of the best photography book's I've come across in years is Whisky Tango Foxtrot A Photographers Chronicle of the Iraq War by Ashley Gilbertson, brutal and honest imagery of the horror of war.

Dug into my storage locker and found a box of cameras. One had a roll in it already, so I've fired off a few frames. Wonder what I had in there originally. Probably two years old at least. I'll post the results when I finish it off.

Equipment related news: mass production version (so $$$$ instead of $$$$$$$$$ limited edition) of LCD-less M coming soon? Set yourself free. I'm still considering black electric tape...

What do people with leica cameras use to take photos of their leica cameras?

I think I see more photos OF leica cameras than photos taken WITH leica cameras.

(disclosure: I've only owned the minilux p+s 35mm camera and it was awesome but I sold it at a 200% mark-up when the market was hot for them...)

Why, our other Leica cameras of course.

A few kinda recent ones from my x-e1. The foggy ones are all from a hike in Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

I've lost Count of the endless debats on photography Forums about the existence of the generic "Leica Look". No, not the look of the cameras, but of the Pictures taken with the cameras :D

 

But one Thing where everybody agrees is that the Leica M-Mount lenses are supreme.

 

Based on your experience - how do the Leica R-lenses compare to the M-Series ones, qualitywise? Are they superior to the Canon L-Lenses (it is a generalization, I know).

What a lovely set. I'm a big fan of the X system.  I've since become enamored with Leica, but the first system I still recommend to interested enthusiasts is the Fuji X100T, which I beat up for months.  I gave my cousin one for his birthday and he's been using it at least as much as his trusted Nikon (he is a professional sports photographer).  My trusted old X100T is now with another cousin who is getting back into the photography hobby.

Sadly I have no experience with Leica's R lenses.  However, I do know plenty of friends who love their R lenses so much and held on to them for years; now that the new Leica SL can accept and almost fully utilize R lenses, they are quite happy.

 

I do have some experience with Canon's L lenses, since I still use my 5DMk3 + 24-70 USM II f/2.8 and 70-200 USM II f/2.8 for specific situations.  I especially like the 70-200, but I find myself using the DSLRs for very specific fast-moving situations like dance performances for my children when I'm stuck ten rows away from the stage and I only have one chance to catch fast-moving action.  It certainly gets the job done, and Canon's phase detect AF system is probably still superior for sports photography to the very, very good AF system that Leica has introduced in their new Q and SL bodies and lenses.  

 

But if the new Leica SL 90-280 f/2.8-4.0 lens proves superior in terms of both AF speed, accuracy, and that incredible rendering of sharpness ("but not too Zeiss-sharp") and dimensionality (achievable using other systems, but comes "naturally" to Leica even without external lighting implements), then I may let go of my L-lenses.

So what is your current main-go to-Body beside the 5D3?

I rotate pretty consistently every week or two depending on what photography learning objective I'm exploring, but my daily carry is a Leica SL Typ 601 with a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 ASPH mounted semipermanently on it.
