DP1 in camera jpgs
Like your shadow Will, the DP1 is certainly a great camera and you and others here use it so well.
We were out and about downtown Vancouver yesterday and I took only the Sony TX7. Although jpeg only, it produces files that can be very nicely post processed. These were all shot on P Mode, at 125 ISO.
Waiting for the light
Art Gallery exterior
This is the best (shirt) pocket camera I've found. I'm loving it! More images at my website.
Had a short walk around town yesterday, found a villa I hadnt noticed before.
Sunny and very cold day. The sky was crystal clear. GX100 rawtherapee and gimp, then I ran the picture through shiftN too.
All the best
lovely pictures- I especialy like the art gallery shot. The reflections too are great.Well seen
and taken. I'll have to look at this camera too.
How many people go to buy their sunday papers in one of these?
For sure whoever owns this really had to work hard to get a lamborghini.
I used the Nikon WCE68 wide angle converter on the GX100.
all the best
ps how many to the litre, not KMS either!
Paul, GX100 seems to have done an admirable job in capturing that yellow colour, your mastery in composition not withstanding.
All justified (and shared) arguments aside, isn't she (it?) a beauty?
No lamborghini's are great, especially the agricultural equipment ( farm tractors , ploughs etc). One of my suppliers has one I believe (along with 3 ferraris, zonda, 6 or 7 porsche etc etc) which only goes to show that the area of europe stretching from Trieste to Turin is
the richest part. The Lombardy market is second only to the Whole of the USA for Mercedes Benz....
Thanks for the compliments Osman. RAWTHERAPEE and the Gimp are working well for me
on the colours .
Blimey they are Volkswagen! The tractors are SAME-DEUTZ
Just posted this @ 4/3rd by accident. I guess I will be tar and feathered!!!
This guy just camped where ever he and his doggy felt like it.
Here's a few more from the little Sony TX7... jpegs processed in ACR & CS4.
Incoming Storm, China Beach, BC
Farm machinery detail
Hotel Rialto (shot through a very smudgy taxi window)
Bedscape, Empress Hotel, Victoria, BC
Check the What's New page of my site for more images.
Talking of smudgy taxi windows, here's another example:
Simon I really like those and the 'look' of the images from the TX7 is interesting.
Thanks! I just hate dirty car windows, but it rarely stops me from taking shots!
The 'look' of the shots is from PP in CS4... they don't come out of the camera that way. The jpegs do give a good base from which I then PP to my tastes. BTW, I have a description of my PP routine on the FAQ page of my site if you are interested further.
Simon I did realize that but still I find that different cameras seem to give a different look even when you pp them quite a lot. Don't know if it's because the original 'look' of a file influences the person doing the pp or if the file itself has a direct effect. Or perhaps I'm just imagining things?
Interesting observation... certainly the original 'look' of the file might give me a direction to take in PP the file. I almost never just use a file out-of-camera. Foremost because I typically find the OOC image to be lacking, regardless of how I have tweaked the jpeg settings. Beyond that though, I simply love post processing an image to see what I can do with it. I used to do this in the wet darkroom but only with B&W. It's just so much easier now with software PP.
As much as I love shooting, I get just as much, if not more enjoyment and satisfaction from the processing. Shooting is only half of the equation.
Lately I've been seeing a lot of fast cars, my sister and hubby came over, he's a
fast car enthusiast. So a trip to Monza race track then a trip down to Maranello
and the "Galleria Ferrari" were made.
Arrived Maranello and it was a disaster, a car boot sale in front of Ferrari ( I kid not although perhaps I should call it a flea market) , piles of snow (about a metre had fallen a few days previously) and traffic halted by it all.
Well we parked and got in. Ferrari allow photography, take all the pictures you like! WB is a problem though with thoughtfully mixed natural and artificial light.
Well its a great day out and well worth going for.
This one taken using the GX100 with a Nikon WCE68 attached
Just the GX100
The set is here
Hope you enjoy these
Very nice images Paul. Makes me wish my GX100 hadn't died.
Thanks Will, its a great little camera and this sort of place is where it really works.
I dont think Ferrari would let a tripod in.
Have stayed away from small sensor cameras for a while and finally had some time to really get to know the Ricoh GR Digital I.
Wouter, I see your point. Looking at those beautiful shots, the thought of my GRD-II tucked away in a drawer made me cringe.
Tremendous view, light & colours all very exciting. You had to be quick to get that one Will!
No burns ?
And lets not forget the ancient DP1.
Good to see you back Wouter. I like your walking shadow and the Picanto especially.
A ferrari Bicycle ,gx100
Like the change in attitude, and the pattern-based series Wouter. Touching.
Continuing the GRDII crusade.
Some shots with the S90.
First is from Germany, the others from Spain.
Here's one while walking to the bank... the baby was alone, and when I tried to approach him, he ran across the street to the tent on the other side of the road (top right). When I approached, I was threatened by his mom who was in the tent... (mind you, this street is a fairly busy street)...
A great scene Franz.
Here some with my GRD3.
Wouter, great work- you even make a urinal great! Seriously that takes some doing!
The last composition with 5 faces I really like.
My meager BnW , converted cos the colour was so horrid!
rest are on my flickr
Love the stage one paul. And the pissoir one could become a classic.
Here are a few from Portobello Road/Golborne Road with GRDI.
great set of pictures,particularly like the composition of the second one with the pot plant seller and the line of faces.
Thanks for the comment on the Hiromi pic- I was not so happy with how the GX100 performed but the light was very poor. She moves a lot, like all musicians, so the settings are high for low light and I relied on burst shooting with JPG, another drawback.
Anyway the music was GREAT!
Sunshine on a lazy day.
Will, your picture makes me want to confess! Excellent view and exposure, composition is spot on.
I hadn't thought of it looking like a confessional! It's actually a self portrait, taken from the ground, looking up through a sun bed at me soaking up the sun this afternoon.
I liked that one a lot Will, also commented on your flickr. Did you try it in B&W? I have a feeling it would work even better.
Just reposting one of the above photos, since they stupidly disappear from flickr if changed.
I had noticed your comment on my flickr page which is much appreciated!
Here is a different one in B&W. I think you were right.
Very effective Will, now it looks like you are interrogating me...
How things/feelings change with different light and colour.
Red Car, Red Cafe
Red Car, Red Cafe -- It was just on dusk, I was following (running to catch up) my family to dinner and I turned to my left to see this near exact colour match between the car and the cafe walls and grabbed the image in an instant.
It would have been lost if the camera had not been both in my hand and powered up - some scenes are only there for an instant. The IOS and bright lens of the LX3 made it all possible. Note the street does have a slight incline.
What do you think?!

of something else, other than the superposition of colours, to make it work completely for me. Never the less like I said, I've looked at it a few times, so am sort of undecided I guess.
Decided not to renew my shotgun license so I took a few snaps before I sold my gun.
GRD2 @21mm with some cropping.
That shotgun is a beauty, it must have been hard to part with.
It was, especially since I inherited it from my Grandfather. But then I only used it to shoot rabbits in my garden and there haven't been any of those for three years (we have a young cat again now who is doing a fine job)
now you've sold the gun the cat will realise he has no competition . I would expect some slacking!
I really like the colours and details you have obtained with the GRD2. The "bokeh" down the barrel is marvellous. The steel blue too.
