First of all, I enjoyed the text, it helps a lot in understanding the context (irrespective of the quality of the photos) and it's always a pleasure to read creative-process related descriptions.
I'm the proud owner of a MacBook Pro Retina since yesterday (and I'm saying this because of MY context now) and when I opened the forum the photos seemed a bit underexposed. I haven't done any work with it yet, just the usual set-up chores (migration, entering the license number of almost all the programs, running Software Update, Disk Utility, and dealing with the system preferences, etc). Well... Lo and behold, I found out that the screen brightness was set-up more or less in the middle of the range, and now, after setting it up at the brightest level, it's an altogether whole different experience. Not only is the screen brighter than what I was used to with my other laptop, but the Retina display is really a marvel.
The following photos look SO good it's almost impossible to describe: #6, #13 (!!!!!!!!) and #14. The colors (especially in #13, but in the others too) are spectacular. I'm afraid this will change the way I process from now on (like I said, I haven't done anything yet with my photos) and I'm not sure what effect will it have when what I show will be looked at from other screens - which poses a potential problem. It took me a while before to realize that the photos I processed looked darker than what I thought looked and I started to compensate. The difference now is even greater.
Having said that, and looking at your pictures, I have to conclude that they will look much better (not only my photos, but others' too), because, at least in this case, it's either the Leica, your PP, or the new screen... or the three of them. I love this series. It would be relatively easy to speculate that some of these would probably look better in B&W. I personally, would have gone that route (#8 and #11, probably), however, they also look good in color. Apart from that, I have this doubt about these pictures being posted in a series vs individually. Some of them seem to make more sense being part of a group while others could probably stand by their own. BUT my conundrum lies in the fact that the narrative is also sort of stuck with the pictures.
I don't know if you realize that what you have posted is, more than a text and a bunch of pictures, an experience. I DO feel the smells, the heat and the insects, and that's my way of saying how I appreciate this post.
