    Storm Approaching Cadillac Ranch - Amarillo, Texas

    A friend and I decided to drive from Dallas to Amarillo to photograph the Cadillac Ranch (among other things) and we ended up spending the weekend there.

    This shot was taken Sunday morning as we were getting ready to head back to Dallas. It was a wonderful stroke of luck that we were there at sunrise and a storm was moving through the area. Just as the sun was coming up I saw two rainbows below the clouds and took this shot. Yes, the dirt is red but made even more so by the golden light of the sunrise.

    Fuji X-Pro1 - 18mm f/14 1/420s ISO 1600 (ISO was so high because I was shooting stars the night before and forgot to set the ISO to 200)

    Jim, I am relieved to learn that it's not only me, an amateur of limited skill, that fails to check the ISO every time. And how wonderful that this camera can cover for my (dare I say our?) mistake so adroitly.

    And I don't want to forget to mention that it's a fine photo. And while I'm at it, I must say that your avatar photo is way cool.

    Let the camera check it for you--Auto ISO!

    No, no, no... I did not buy a camera with manual capabilities to think for me. If I forget, it's my fault and I can't blame the camera for any issues.

    Half of the problems I have seen have been "auto-related"... I don't want to be that guy. Auto ISO is ok but I prefer to control the camera myself. I learn more that way.

    Beautiful image Jim - I have often visited your site because of the wonderful pictures, whichever camera you use.
    I agree with the disadvantages of autoiso - especially because you can't limit the lowest shutter speed - the camera often goes as low as about 1/35mm equivalent focal length.

    Night Sky with the XP1 & 18mm 30 second exposure

    I've never had a chance to shoot the night sky without light pollution and this shot certainly has it as well... but compared to what I have to work with in the Dallas area this was almost a Dark Sky site.... This was taken near Amarillo.. I tried to get as far away from the main city light pollution as possible but there was no safe haven.

    Shot with the X-Pro1 and 18mm. Manual mode, lens set to infinity @ f/3.2. ISO 2000 30 second exposure.... I had no idea what I was doing but had fun doing whatever it was. There are slight star trails even at just 30 seconds.... and yes the noise is horrendous but it was a thrill to do this for the first time and get these results as bad as they are... I believe that cluster of stars is the Milky Way... just guessing.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Had a great day out in Edinburgh yesterday at the Jazz & Blues Festival carnival. Actually saw one other guy with an X-Pro 1 there, there were some seriously large DSLR outfits on show as well as a guy with an M9.

    I shot a lot of stuff on my OM-D, but I think my favourites were the ones I took later on with the X-Pro 1 (All on Fuji 35mm lens). All from OOC JPG:

    I love the vintage look with this one. We so often get so hung up on megapixels, sharpness, lens distortions and colour abberations, noise etc that it's easy to lose sight of the beauty of just simple lo-tech story telling photography.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Been lurking on these forums admiring others fine work with the X-Pro 1 and decided that since my Voigtlander 12mm finally showed up I'd toss in a few recent shots.

    Arthuar, Many thanks for the lovely comments!

    Yes, this was exactly what the camera captured. Very similar to the actual scene by the eye. It was a lovely day with a special kind of light filtering through the sea mist at the coastal village harbour. So I can take no credit for any special processing powers

    Thanks Graham, It was one of those shots that I took and at first dismissed as of no interest as in its original form it seemed to be bland. However after looking at it a bit more I could see that it had captured something of the emotions of the day and was also enigmatic in a way.

    I often miss my Leica M9 outfit but when the out of camera jpgs from the Fuji look like this I don't really miss it quite as much! I'm so looking forward to the new 14mm from Fuji though - I sometimes want a real wide ...
