Leica M-9 for Fine Art Landscape

I wanted to revisit the qualities of the Leica M9 as a fine art landscape camera so I went back into the files I captured while in Yosemite earlier this year.

The shot below was captured using the M9, Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH lens shooting at f/4 and 1/2000 second at an ISO of 160. The image is slightly cropped to where I feel it presents itself better. The image was opened first in RAW then CS4 where it was processed. My normal workflow is to work an image to a state where I then duplicate then continue working before duplicating again and again till it tells me "I'm finished". This particular image took 5 duplications. I decided to add the border and name at the last minute for the web and have a regular file for printing (without the name and watermark).

This file again proves to me that the M9 can hold its own and is more than capable of large printed images.

Thanks once again for visiting and should you like a print of this image just let me know remembering that we limited our series to a total of 25.
