    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Let's change the theme a little.

    A game...but first you might know the saying ' only mad dogs and ....go out in the midday sun..' well, I too was amongst them.

    I took to the bazaars and said to myself if I could guess where these lovely people might have come from.


    It was very hot and very humid.

    I was feeling the heat and suddenly I got slightly afraid..wonder why?

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    ceh, thank you very much for stopping by. As to my last post..these visitors were from Belarus. Lovely family.

    I moved on...


    As to the cam..I am beginning to get comfortable with it. I wish that and this were built into the XE-1. But each cam has its strengths and shortcomings.

    The XE-1 has served me well. It might become a permanent travel companion.

    Thank you all for being with me on the train.

    Ayesha...well she took the train to strange places like Chanel, Tiffanys, Cartier, Dior..places I have never been to. Strange places, foreign names.

    Kindest regards.
    Rayyan,

    this shot is outstanding, but in general all these images you posted here are superb! A real joy to watch!

    May I say that obviously it does not matter which camera you use!

    Thanks

    I went to Festival des Metiers here in Toronto last week. Used my Nikon 35/2. Manual focus is now very easy with focus peaking. Just love it. Here are some pics converted by Silkypics. C&C welcome.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    I've had my X-E1 for a couple months now, but have only recently gotten out to shoot with it. This image is one I am using for a color panoramic print exchange (8.5x25 inch paper).

    I'm really impressed with this camera and the Fuji lenses. The images used to create this pano were taken with the 35mm f1.4 lens.

    Great colorful pano. Did you use the X-E1 pano or individual shots stitched manually?

    Thanks Krist8. This pano was created from individual shots (hand held) stitched together in PS5. As an example of how little I've used the X-E1, I didn't even know there was a pano feature/function on the camera. Time for me to have a look at the manual I guess.

    Lee: re: the 14mm...outstanding sharpness and brilliance...back in my salad days, I made a pretty good living with the Hasselblad Superwide C and the Leica 21 Super Angulon (architecturals and interiors). The Fuji 14mm nudges into that class, in my humble opinion...also it focuses down to less that 12".

    Lloyd, Hermann..thank you both for your ongoing encouragement for my work.

    Today is the 6th of the 12th month of the year 1434 Hijra. On the 10th, Muslims all over the world shall celebrate Eid Ul Adha.

    My family and I extend all our best wishes to all people everywhere and all my friends, members , admins and mods at GetDpi for a prosperous, peaceful and healthy year and years to come.

    Time to end the trip. We choose a time of least traffic. We rented a 2013 Kia Sportage..and headed to Abu Dhabi on side. The following day we headed to the extreme east..Ras Al Khaima.

    The shaky pictures are mine..she was driving. The somewhat decent ones are hers..I was driving!! Apologies for tilted horizon/verticals..

    Burj Khalifa..


    Now in no particular order...driving towards Abu Dhabi and Sharjah is a joy..6 lane highway all the way...


    Turn right..right..your right and mine are the same!!












    Miss a turn and that's what happens!!

    Thanks for being with us.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    More on the 14mm Fuji lens...this is a rectilinear lens...as long as you keep the camera level, lines will be straight...I have not seen any barrel or pincushion distortion...but keystoning is the result of not keeping the camera level. I stopped at the railroad station on my way to the grocery store and grabbed a few pics hand-held...with the resultant keystoning. Here's the joy of using this lens...the lens is very sharp and sharpness is not lessened by cropping...so I used the camera distortion tool in Photoshop Elements and squared the lines...resulting in some heavy cropping...but...as long as you leave space around your subject, one would never know.

    I included a b&W version of the locomotive...seems to add some dimension to the image...also the yellow post in the final image was taken less than 12" from the post.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Here is a single image of the area near Sheep Mountain, Alaska which I shot at the same time I took images for the color pano which I posted a few days ago.

    Shot with the 35mm f1.4 lens. Converted to B&W with SilverEfex Pro2.

    It makes a very nice 11x17 inch print. I think I will use this image for an upcoming B&W print exchange.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    benroy, thank you very much for your encouragement. Much appreciated.

    Not far from my house is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Let's take a quick ride there. There are motorways that lead to a valley..Wadi Hanifa. Therein lies the town of Al-Diriyah and the Turaif District.

    Approaching the site one cannot miss our Flag. It is huge..I mean huge..


    The road begins a gentle descent into Wadi Hanifa and the numerous palm groves that lie within it..

    Thanks Lloyd.

    Went into a palm grove.

    There was a very old water well; not used but covered and maintained.


    I am using the Fuji 1-55 zoom in all of these images; and no sharpening has been applied. Amazing lens.

    An old mosque preserved and restored. When I was young most mosques were like this minus the air-con, loudspeaker ( fans and light bulbs were a luxury )..



    Let's go in and take a look..simple. A thick canvas would be drawn overhead, to protect the people from the sun!!

    A couple of shot from my hotel room in HK using a pillow as the tripod and one trial shot using the panorama mode. All taken with the 18-55 kit lens.
