Dog with the LEICA NOCTILUX-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH

Focus and framing here by pure trial & error, just lowering the hand and trying to aim at the correct distance.

More with the Voigtlander Nokton Aspherical 35mm f/1.2 II Lens

With a 3 stops ND filter, I could use the lens wide open. It's a pity I had not a ND filter for myself, sun hits hard in Abu Dhabi.

Rider and her mare

We took this picture a few months ago, on a cloudy afternoon. The main and only light is high and right to the camera. With the focused beam that the PLM provides, the rider is in the hotspot, and fades out quickly.

I am very low on the ground, so I can have the horizon line covering some buildings behind. This usually would create a perspective distortion, that I'm fixing on-camera with the 45mm PC-E lens.

Scouting on pairs

These warriors go scouting in pairs, and here we have the second.

Delicate horses

A proud owner of a sporting mare, who had just been treated with a few stitches from a very minor injury on her right hind leg. PLM on camera left, overexposing the sun, which was at my back. The side-lighting makes the horse shine, and gives her that nice catchlight on her eye.

Warrior on time

I saw this warrior wearing his "warbonnet", and he was kind to allow me snapping a couple of pictures. If he was to start a war, I'm sure he will not be late to the fight, with the help of that nice digital watch.
