I'd love to know whether you Monochrom users are actively using coloured lens filters. Maybe not for those street shots, but I can imagine part of the success of Allen's flower might be a careful choice of filter. Was that so? No agenda, just curiosity as a former B&W film user.

The flower shot was no filter. The shot of my clients summer home (#214 I think) was a red filter.

A casual portrait from dinner last night of our waitress

Hasselblad Fan? You had to have made an image or two by now. How do you like the MM?

Taking the use of filters with the MM to an extreme, this is a tri-colour image, three exposures made by holding three filters, red, green, and blue, in front of the lens and then blended in Photoshop.

I just used a standard red, yellow, and an 80B for the blue, but if I were to consider doing this sort of thing more seriously I would pay more attention to the actual filter values as the MM sensor is already slightly green biased. It produces some very nice colour values, but ideally is limited to still life or very still landscape as any movement at all, from the camera or subject, results in colour fringing.

As for more normal use of filters I do use red and yellow with my MM just to bring out the clouds and losing a stop or two hardly matters given the MM's ISO performance.

Beautiful skin in the last one.  That tone is hard to get with digital, flows out of the MM with ease.

Beautiful image. I'd love to see it printed large.

Some great B&W work here, and meaning no disrespect, but using a B&W dedicated camera to make colour images reminds me of the image I saw of a guy at a ball game with his baseball cap on backwards and his hand over his eyes to deflect the glare.   ;)
