    Lloyd - this is a such a lovely piece of work. You have a beautiful family. It made me realise I have got into the bad habit of looking at clarity, detail, colour, bokeh rather than the picture but there is something so human about this picture that you don't notice anything else.

    Uwe, I love the pastel tones on the old automobile photos.

    The trees on the rolling hillsides remind me of my visit to California in '96 when we spent some time in Santa Barbara and Monterey, San Luis Obispo (and a day in SF to get my stolen passport replaced). Must return someday.

    A bit of Photoshop Magic...

    While I liked the shot I did of the old locomotive I found it lacking in atmosphere so I decided to "play" a bit with that image in Photoshop.

    Here is the orignal shot.


    And here is the result of my playing with it in Photoshop.. This is the photo I wish I could have captured.. and I do have plans to reshoot it when the moon is full and there (hopefully) will be a bit of clouds in the sky. I reworked the original image and added the clouds and engineer in the cab. I know the photo purist may not care for this but I enjoy experimenting in Photoshop and of the two photos.. the photo below is the one I am considering printing for a spot on my wall. Full moon this weekend.. I'll see what I can get without any manipulation... lower base ISO and longer exposure.

    Jim,

    Nice job with the edits. These seem very well done although by adding the train driver I think that you also need to either darken or extend the track in front of the train otherwise there's going to be a big wreck in a few seconds!

    I prefer the original myself but hey that's just me. Both are excellent.

    Well, this was one of those "rainy day" things... My hope is to reshoot it this weekend with no "additions or manipulations" I prefer photos that have not been modified in the way that I modified this one but I was having too much fun playing with it. It is a static display so the track ends where the track ends... thus the phrase.. End of the Line!

    There is a new beta of RPP - no change to the interpolation algorithm for X-Pro 1 but some new profiles/film simulations.

    raw_rpp: New film and paper simulation profiles/

    This was with KL25B&W:



    Basics in RPP, sharpening in LR.

    Waiting to see the X-E1 in the flesh. I want to see how small it really is when I pick it up in person. If there's any other system than what I have right now I am most interested in, this would be it (passed on DP2M, passed on EM-5, may still very well keep what I have).

    I own a K-5 with a few lenses and a Pentax Q with a couple of lenses. The camera I am using the most lately is by far the Q.

    http://raist3d.typepad.com/files/imgp7943.jpg
    http://raist3d.typepad.com/files/imgp8327.jpg

    I do a lot of street life and love small cameras, particularly if pocketable. I also own a few 4/3rds (to reiterate: 4/3rds, not m4/3rds) cameras that I use once in a while along with several Olympus 4/3rd lenses and flashes- a whole system really. That was my first original DSLR system.

    Anyway, there's a few companies I like and Fuji is one of them. I used to own an F700 and F710 back then. What to me an X-E1 looks promising to do is unify a camera for paid event works/weddings (that would be my K-5) with my personal carry always street work (that would be my Q). I always like the idea of using only *one* camera for all if I can.

    Looks like the X-E1 maybe, just maybe, could fit in a pocket without the lens. At least I could "store it away" so that is interesting to me. I also like the ergonomics and sensor output. I am remotely looking at the new Pen but I am not too warm with that "powershot canon wheel" in the back of the interface. I also would prefer if possible to keep the sensor at a level of K-5 which the X-E1 does.

    Anyway, I still like my Q a lot. But having a unified camera system, one and only one with APS-C IQ level for everything seems enticing if the Fuji can deliver small enough. One thing the Q has though- leaf shutter = mega quiet.

    X-E1 looks like being the Fuji goldilocks camera. Somewhat like Nikon's D600.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I'm not sure about the X-E1 yet myself. I like do use the OVF in the X-pro 1 more than the EVF and don't like the relatively slow EVF refresh rate of the X-Pro 1. I read yesterday that Fuji say the X-E1 EVF refresh rate is 46 fps, that is very poor (compared to the OM-D which is 60 fps on Normal and 120 fps on High) I can put up with it for the odd shot, but not as the only VF.

    A Japanese web magazine published Fujifilm Mr. Ueno's interview.
    1. EVF is the same speed as X-Pro1 46fps. (Sony Nex 7 60fps) The reason why X-E1 is slower than Sony is X-Trans CMOS.
    2. EVF latency is less than 20ms, which should be totally acceptable.

    But believe it or not, at least with the firmware I tried the Nex 7 slows down in lower light more than the Fuji X-Pro 1. I tried the X-Pro 1 just last night in street night city light and the refresh rate seemed faster than what I remember the Nex 7 doing. I didn't find it too bad actually.

    Also 46 fps is not bad (it seems to me it's actually a bit lower in lower light, maybe 23 fps which is not horrible, that's almost like film).

    But to me the choice between X-E1 and X-Pro 1 is clear: the X-E1 is smaller, case closed for me. I don't like the size of the X-Pro 1.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Point taken about the size Ricardo. Its a personal thing, I prefer the larger size and in fact use a case that makes it even taller.

    It may just be my imagination, but I do think the EVF refresh rate of the X-Pro 1 has improved since version 2 firmware update. Certainly it is a lot easier to manual focus now, especially with the choice of 3X zoom and 10X.

    I'll wait for a couple of years and see what other improvements Fuji bring to their X range, hopefully much better EVF refresh times and general speed improvements.

    One thing they did right with the X-E1 was fitting a diopter adjustment instead of having to fit an external correction lens on X-Pro 1.

    In the mean time I'll be picking up more of the Fuji X lenses as they become available. I have been impressed by them and they are excellent value for money.

    Anyway, sorry for this pause in service, back to taking photos!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    LOL, thanks, guys...Rich, alas, I wasn't at the game...who would have thought that UW'd pull that one out....

    Lee, Rich, Raist, Ario, David, Lloyd, and everyone else, thank you all so much.

    Images we taken in RAW, and converted in LR4. There's quite a bit of latitude to edit the RAW files, though when little editing is necessary, I'm still happy to use JPEG's. We do need a better RAW converter, but now at least AF is substantially improved, though not perfect

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    And for me..
    XPro1 + XF 35/1.4

    Some color..




    And some B&W






    B&W processed in Silver Efex 2.. with varying settings.
    Hope GOOG doesn't end of life it after their acquisition. Clearly the Nik purchase was for the mobile assets, and GOOG is not in the business of shipping paid desktop software in any form...
    LR4+SFX2 keep reminding me I need to go computer shopping.. Apple better hurry up those rumored Mac Pro updates :-/ .. I know what I'm getting for Festivus this year!

    Steve, I read somewhere that Nik have said that their desktop products will continue, which is great news.

    That's great news. Their position may change over time, but it's still good to hear.

    It would be nice to meet Godfrey Jono, but no, the steering wheel is on the wrong side.

    I can see clearly now...

    I went to a local camera show (read as flea market) this weekend and was lucky enough to find one of the old Nikon diopters (+1) and it did wonders for my EVF on the X-Pro1. It was old, worn and brassed but it only cost me $2.00.. but now that I know exactly what strength I need I have ordered the Fuji +1 from B&H... but that is not the real story.

    The real story is that now I am finally able to obtain critical focus with my legacy lenses like the Minolta Rokkor PG 58mm f/1.2 wide open.. which is what I used to take this photo. I cannot tell you how much more fun it is now that my EVF is crystal clear and in focus. I was beginning to think that there might be a problem with the lens as I never could get sharp focus when it was wide open. It was my vision and the "apparent" in-focus image I saw in the EVF that was the problem. The +1 diopter has solved this issue and I will be keeping the 58mm f/1.2.

    Anyway, visited the Rail Yard in Grapevine, Texas for a little while today and loved the way the Rokkor and the XP1 worked together on this first shot. The two seem made for each other.
