    Hi Yanidel,
    i like your pix but wonder why your color is so weak. Kinda old fashioned like using East Zone film..Orwo? The Leica has the Kodak sensor and my color is really strong(Kodachrome), though i use a small Kodak digital.
    Using auto type cameras with external meters seems silly to me. i am bone lazy and don’t carry more than i need. Usually too much.
    Good luck with forthcoming trip. Looking forward to seeing more.
    Bon Voyage.
    May your sight be exciting and your exposures true.

    Hi Jason,
    The colors are post processed with some desaturation, far from the original output of the Kodak sensor.
    As for manual metering, I’ll soon write a series on it. To me, it is much more reliable then auto-exposure, there are so many situations where auto can get fooled.
    Thanks, cheers.
