    Hehe, it seems so.

    M3photo, the photo of those Merc's is excellent. I just bought a new Mercedes truck for
    where I work . Strange how the trucks cost less than the cars.
    Sizifo, love the marble statue . Great diagonal , texture ,focus and the colour too.
    Will the slug shot is marvellous. Details and exposure all spot on.

    Heres one I took after visiting the Ferrari Museum. Some quite and relaxation.

    Grazie mille. The background was defocussed in PP. Even at 105mm equivalent, the s90 won't shorten the DOF that much.

    Very nice Will. The GRD2 gives a really alive image which your composition has made real.

    Thanks for the kind words. I had never played around much with the 21mm lens on this camera, but one day I went shooting around downtown Dallas and left it on the camera all day. It was a lot of fun. I just happened to come across this very small, but loud, carpenter's union group protesting against a company who had offices in that huge office building.

    The 21mm is great, and I love the 40mm best. But then it's no longer a compact cam.

    With buildings I always wish that some perspective control would be possible, but am not quite ready to get into large format There must be some software method to do this, but I haven't come across it yet. Anyone know?

    ShiftN is freeware and works. In GIMP there is a simple perspective control too.
    ShiftN has a Flickr group where you can see many examples.

    Re: More Small Sensor Fun

    In this particular case, I actually tilted the lens back to increase the distortion. The idea was to make the building appear even more gigantic than it was in relation to the size of the people. Not sure if it worked 100%, but that was the idea.

    Rick,
    It worked. You could even have been more adventurous in exaggerating that perspective.
    I do feel sorry for those people. Their demonstration does look a little like pi**ing against the wind
    Great picture.

    Thanks I'm interested to see how it works. This is one of those things that if it was readily available we would probably be using it all the time. For me the converging perspective with buildings rarely works as well as a corrected version would, even if the effect is used to show the size of the building. It's an unfortunate fact that our brains "correct" the actual convergence of lines, and that the realistic photographic depiction just looks wrong.

    The photo is still awesome, don't get me wrong!

    Re: More Small Sensor Fun

    Sizifo,
    what I do with shiftN is to run it automatic, see what it looks like then run it with manual control and mostly reduce the perspective correction or tilt.
    Do this until I'm happy.

    Shooting people unawares; one of GRDII's strong points. Both were shot in the ferry across the Bosphorus. Heavy post-processing with Color EfexPro.

    First post: a few weeks back I was stuck in Beijing for some days, due to the volcano ash cloud. All the Nikon DSLR stuff was at home, but I had the G10 with me. All were taken close to the Gate of Heavenly Peace near the Tiananmen Square.

    Drinking RAKI, the most popular spirit in Turkey, along the Golden Horn. Subdued evening light, boat traffic lessens, friends gather...
    Courtesy DP1 and a few sips of raki.

    Osman,
    the second shot is magic, for me, Sunlight, birds, old guy, moon, blues and reds. lots of lines cutting across too.
    My daughter brought me a bottle of Raki from Lebanon a couple of weeks ago, along with Baklava. Great stuff!. Yet to try Turkish Raki.

    Re: More Small Sensor Fun

    Thank you Paul, I'm glad you liked the shot.
    The raki they have in Syria and Lebanon is called arak, very similar to our raki. The Greek version, namely the ouzo, is a bit sweeter.
    As for baklava, the king of our sweets, all I can say is that it is a cholesterol booster of the most effective kind!

    Re: More Small Sensor Fun

    Osman,
    i tried home distilled Raki ( its called that in Crete) on a trip to Crete. It is less sweet than the Ouzo and Pastis which is the french one. Italy doesnt seem to have this civilised way of keeping cool while imbibing alcohol... The Baklava is amazingly rich!

    Eddie- really like your chinese shots- The First is a gem.

    Re: More Small Sensor Fun

    Yesterday I tried shooting b/w with my DP1 for the first time. I have mixed emotions. Ricoh GRDII does a better job in this respect, utilizing noise to artistic effect, whereas the DP1 suffers above 400 ISO. On the other hand, DP1 has a three-dimensional feel. A sample (heavily post-processed):

    Well, I havn┤t a clue. But the peoples had big fun and the atmosphere was also sparkling.
    Another reason is that lot┤s of Turks join in because of the terrific player Mesut Ízil with turkish roots!

    Re: More Small Sensor Fun

    Popularizing sports have been an efficient way to divert public attention from serious internal and external political affairs for millenniums. Football is no exception, with international colors thrown in for good measure.

    I've read a book review about the founder of Spartak Moscow. The author states that attendance and tension in the stadiums have fallen since Soviet times. Food for thought

    There sure is a lot of good stuff in this thread, especially lots of really nice B&W.

    I had forgotten how much fun little cameras can be. Today my Better Half allowed me to use MY Canon G10 (the one he pilfered from me five minutes after I bought it).

    I agree that there is a lot of good stuff in this thread but your cloud image is exceptionally good.

    Amongst other things the reflection of the clouds in the water is beautiful.
