    gx100 and replicating history

    paul and i have been discussing the virtues and vices of the gx100, so last eve i went out with it. the results eluded me at first. finally, this morning, i systematically went through the hundred or more presets in lightroom and found something that excited me, a 19th century look. the key to all these cameras is imagination and post-processing.

    you can go thru the whole gallery here: http://www.pbase.com/wwp/rep

    Wayne,
    I'm speechless.... as you say its imagination and using the tools (post processing).
    The second shot and the radio mast are exceptional.
    I too went out this afternoon, trying to get to a field full of wild crysantheum's
    that I had seen from the highway behind the supermarket. Well I didnt get to them but I did find a few others. These flowers are over 2 metres tall. I had my Manfrotto extended
    fully and the camera pointing up. Now I need to apply imagination.
    BTW i set the WB at Auto as I forgot the white card! from the series of pictures i chose the temperature that seems nearest to the colours I remember.The GX100 seems to have done it right . Tomorrow I'll take my Oly c5050. Hopefully the sheep I heard bahhhing will not have eaten them yet.
    GX100, rawtherapee and Gimp

    and this was a bit lower down

    hi paul,
    these bring back the movies of my childhood - oklahoma and the wizard of oz -exhilerating. (i am a flower fiend, especially in the local university rose garden. try this one www.pbase.com/wwp/rose ) with pictures like these i'm sorry so many have deserted us for greener pastures!

    Wayne, love this series, vignetting gives them a dreamlike, timeless quality.

    Details are good Derek, I like your second pic, Your first i would have cropped a bit
    but then thats just me.

    Thanks lili, glad you like these. I've noticed these flowers by the sides of the roads or in fields that havent been treated with plant killers.

    tried the other side of the mountain with the gx100 last eve. the whole file at www.pbase.com/wwp/rep

    one thing i like is being able to shoot with a b&w lcd view (not possible in dp1 raw, no accompaning jpeg). makes form much more apparent.

    working on these photos led to a personal realization. here's a blog about it:
