Warren, I love these shots. The compositions, tones, lighting, subject detail, and background blur/bokeh are all very pleasing. Congratulations!

I need to take a lesson from you on b&w conversion.

Joe
Hey Joe,

That is very kind of you to say. I really appreciate the positive feedback!

B&W conversion is something I've always struggled with, so I'm really liking Fuji's profiles. This is processed using the ACROS setting.

Yes indeed!

I'm really liking the Nostalgic Neg setting too.
One of my favorites as well! Anyone interested in recipes at all? I've come up with a few I like after playing around with X RAW Studio. Took me a while to realize the whole set of possibilities with recipes that are beyond just the standard film simulations.

Maybe I should start a dedicated thread for recipes over in the Fuji forum..

I paid a visit to Hadrians wall in Northumberland earlier this week and finally got to give my new GFX100S a proper try. I took the GF 23mm which I used for the first shot and the GF 45mm for the second. Steel Rigg seen in the first image is bisected by Hadrians wall and, although a challenging climb, its worth it to see the remains of a Roman milecastle (a small military outpost) on the summit. Sycamore gap is named after the Sycamore tree which is growing on the wall over the far side of Steel Rigg. A definite contender for the title of 'Worlds most photographed tree'!

It's been a while since I've done a still life study (or any photographic study, for that matter), but the bounty from this morning's trip to the local produce market provided some inspiration.

Sake casks lining the entrance to the Meiju Jingu Shrine. This scene is seen all over Shinto temples in Japan, and not in Buddhist temples. I understand is an offering made by individuals or corporations. Known as kazaridaru, they are empty of sake, but full of spiritual significance.

What is interesting at Meiji Jingu is that the wall opposite this is lined not with sake casks, but with Bordeaux wine bottles/casks.

It was a gorgeous evening to take in the sunset over the Pacific Ocean from the foothills of Mt Tamalpais in Marin County, California, with Bolinas Lagoon in the foreground to the left.

I've lived in Chicago and the surrounding area for over 30+ years now, but haven't done a tour of Wrigley Field until today. Ran into a fellow medium format photographer from Indiana, we talked Fuji GF and Hasselblad X systems while hanging out in the Cubs dugout!

GFX 100S and GF 32-64.
Classic shots, Brandon!
