Examples: Death Valley (M9)
These examples shot Feb 27, 2013, or thereabouts using the 18MP Leica M9.
These ad-hoc examples show Death Valley National Park scenery.
Color balance is “best effort”: with off-center cyan tint to the corners (less than perfect lens correction), the tension between magenta/cyan overall tint is a hassle with the M9, and it is also non-linear if a push or pull is done, complicating matters.
