Leica M240
Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux-M

Aperture Series: Shaded Forest at Sunrise (M240)

Taken at moderate distance in a shaded mountain canyon under bluish light. The color has intentionally been left cold (bluish) by conversion using Daylight color temperature.

Adobe Camera Raw 8.2(94): 5000° K, Tint = 0, Camera Profile = Embedded
Tint at +0; the +8 value as determined in sunlight is off.

Forest at sunrise

Image cropped just slightly at left to avoid a distracting lighter area. At f/0.95 one does not notice it much, but stopped down it becomes a distraction. The EVF is apparently not quite 100% coverage, and this was the source of the framing error.
