    Thanks for posting. I like the first one especially.
    B+W is where GRDII shines IMO.

    Love that B&W, Will. The colors are striking but that one takes it

    I'm going to have to disagree with the ever lovely Lili and say the color images are equally appealing -- and I adore B&W photography. I keep going back to he second and third images, the ones with the blue lines in them as my favs.

    Excellent work, the lot of them, Will.

    Re: Night images

    Will, I went back through them and love the second color one too, that strong blue line makes it.

    Thanks Paul, I like the last one best I think but I was pleased with all of them. It is surprising how clean they came out with a bit of levels adjustment in CS2 to make the night sky black.

    Lilli I love the single star in yours, and you've again managed to capture that other worldly feeling so characteristic of some of your work. Great shot.

    The absolutely shocking storms we are having here are preventing me taking my DP2 for its daily walk, I can feel its lens on me asking Why.

    Helen those are lovely images, especially the biriyani steam shot, and as for them not being small sensor I would say no sensor at all is as small as you can get one

    Sizifo the swans are superb!

    Thanks Derek. I hope you are through the worst of the storms. We in Essex have been lucky enough to miss the worst of them.

    Here is one from today. GRD I.

    If anybody has an opinion, should I remove the glare on the LHS?

    Love that image Sizifo!

    Would look good without the glare but I really like it with the glare as well, sort of balances better.

    I completely agee with Will here, the glare balances it. Sizifo, great shot, very very atmospheric

    I love that shot, Sizifo! The glare does not bother me, on the contrary, it adds additional texture to what would otherwise be a (nearly) complete silouhette... and because of that, the person in the foreground is connected to the upper part of the picture in a way which I don't think would be as true were the building completely solid black.

    Will's right. The glare creates a visual triangle for eye travel like the one on the upper right. Very nice....

    Re: Night images

    Thanks for all the comments! I'm ok with the flare as well. It just bothered me that it is neither in the frame nor out of it. I might yet do some copying and pasting.

    I find the different interpretations of the image interesting. Some people thought it was a mural. I get a feeling some of you think the black object is a building some distance from the woman. Of course it's impossible to judge without having been there. In reality, the background is just a fence around a building site, a few meters from the camera. Plus, I should add the image is hardly manipulated at all, other than b&w and levels.

    Thank You.
    The Pen is a great camera. Can't really compare to the DP1 as they are really different. I will say that the Pen is great in low light where the DP is, well anyway, I am enjoying it.
    The image is a raw file thru LR, PS4 but mainly Silver Effex.
