    Portrait of a photographer friend (film/darkroom B&W photographer no less) I had breakfast with this morning.
    This is a full 28mm uncropped shot, to those wondering (like me) what you can do with 28mm since I am not a wide angle photog.

    I like the second one especially, Ricardo. It really shows off the wonderful BW tonality of the GR. The absence of any obvious distortion in the color pic is also pretty impressive.

    Somehow this is a bit of an outstanding Picture(sparkling and soft framed), I think, and refreshes what the GR (beside the photograph ) is capable of.
    And that beside, there is a bit of Dostojevskij, perhaps an aged Rodion Raskolnikov (the book everyone has to read, you know, before…), over it.

    Ricoh GR from a recent trip to Guadalajara, MX. First time on a trip without my SLR - and it was a whole different experience not being bogged down by the weight. Ricoh definitely got a classic in their hands here with the GR, lightweight and amazing image quality. The lens attached to this body is amazing! Hoping for 35 f2 - and maybe an 18 f2.8 version! Even a 50 f2. I will buy them all! LOL!

    @JohnW and Thorkil - thanks for the comments.

    @Thorkil specifically - I have to pledge ignorance and have no idea which Russian figure you are talking about (Russia right? :-)) - are you talking about some Russian photographer, or writer, or philosopher?

    Is this what you are referring to- ? Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    thanks again,

    @roanjoh- believe it or not the last shot is my favorite. I also wish Ricoh to come out with a 50mm F2 lens version.

    Ricardo, yes, thats the book, Crime and Punishment, sometimes its just named Rodion Raskolnikov by Dostojevski (1821-1881), THE BOOK, you could call it. No, I don't know, people got different books in their backhead. But this one is ultimate strong.
    I'm not good at reading books. But this one I read when I was 18, and couldn't stop before finishing (and for my part that is unusual), read it once Again for about two years ago, same thing happened, despite 600 pages .
    When you have read it, you will fully understand why your friend is a aged version of Rodion Raskolnikov, and almost spot on.

    While visiting South Carolina last weekend, I drove over to the charming coastal town of Beaufort and walked through its vast military cemetery. What a moving experience. Acre after acre of fallen young men and women makes one introspective about sacrifice and war and hope for the evolution of human consciousness. - John

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    As I came out of my train station this morning, just at dawn, the light was so beautiful I thought, "stuff it! I am going to photograph for a few minutes before hitting my desk". You gotta hand it to the GR: it does take a very nice photograph.

    I was wondering where you would resurface, Thorkil. I guessed it would be in the GR thread. Here's one to keep you company.

    Louis,

    Not sure which I like more -- the photos or the "stuff it" philosophy. Both excellent.

    woodmancy - I am not sure I quite like the composition entirely but what catches my attention is the "painted yet natural" HDR treatment which doesn't seem overdone.

    Not overdone HDR In my book it's pretty hard to do. In my book 95%+ of the HDR shots out there automatically s*ck for being a bad HDR attempt but this treatment avoids that.

    Ricardo, it is not HDR. Raw file processed with the "normal" Lightroom sliders. I think what you see is the effect of no AA filter on the sensor which pumps up the micro detail.

    Ok, let me be more specific - it may not be an HDR bracketed capture, but it is processed looking as if it was HDR in some ways, if that makes any sense :-)

    No, it's not the lack of AA. That does something else.

    Ricardo - I think it is my heavy use of "clarity" and "sharpness" in Lightroom. I just processed this one which was taken on the same occasion. It has the same feel.

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Yeah, the LR clarity slider was my first thought when I saw the prior post. It's easy to overdo it. Once the effect becomes obvious and unnatural, it's too much for my taste. These both seem excessive to me. But I appreciate that everyone has their own threshold.

    There is something very "grotesque" along with a strong set of lines/composition about this shot. I could imagine flipping through a catalog of the history of a town that had a vampire legend or something and see this shot :-)

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Shot taken a couple of hours ago. She was with her husband and a friend in the window of a bar, and I took a deep breath and asked her if I could photograph her, and they were all pretty cool about it.

    It was very overcast today, the light was beautiful.



    The shot also works in B&W and I am somewhat undecided which one is best, but figured the color one shows her eyes and lips.

    Been using a Q7 for a lot of street stuff but on a break to get my "learn how to use the Ricoh GR" well. I really think any camera could be "the only one" depending what we are trying to do and what we do. I would love to have just one. I really need to sell my K-5 and I am starting to consider selling my Fuji.

    Maybe could shop from USA? ;-) You are fine with the K. If you don't mind carrying it just keep with it. I like it a lot but I guess a DSLR is not for me at this point.
