    Re: Summer 2010

    Nice start to the Thread Will, and thanks for starting it too!
    Chemistry is one GCE I did get ( although I failed Math miserably, beats me how! not so sure about how attentive the examiners were...)
    Nice nostalgic pic for anyone who went to school in the UK.

    If Summer starts in May then this pic fits as one of my first:-

    Re: Summer 2010

    I have been enjoying a Samsung Ex1 this summer and I have it near by most of the time. I haven't enjoyed or used a small sensor cameras this much before and for the time being has changed my photography. That could change again though because I often find myself thinking of a new Sigma SD15 and a big lens. I have posted many more photos from the Ex1/Tl500 on my blog, regards Bill

    That's new and clever trick, when one posts an image small like mine you place your mouse pointer on it and it auto changes to large and black, is this new or have i been missing something lol.

    Re: Summer 2010

    Sensor size doesn't matter, I think. How and what you shoot is all that matters, and your last post is a very good case in point; the guy reminiscing is so real. Funny, when I browse some of the big camera forums, I find lots of technical expertise used to smaller effect. I agree with you; this thread is huge fun, with its special camaraderie.

    good to see you here Streetshooter! Wayne- you are in form!Great pictures.
    Derek- those rocks and Alghe, you are getting the goods from your Leica.
    Those rocks look so real and natural.

    Size dont matter, its what you do with it. Last time I heard that it seemed more like words of consolation....

    Thanks Derek, the two whiteish roses are on the same plant BTW.

    Wayne, you certainly have an "eye" for a shot. Just booked my holidays in the Dolomites.
    Hope to get some good Mountain pics. Although I dont want to find clouds like yours!

    all the best

    DP2. Though one might argue why it is in the small sensor section. I find it beautiful how this sensor/lens renders the oof area.

    Wayne, I've been asking around with friends on things to see on my holiday.
    Apparently there is a mountain lake thats emerald colour. Well I'll see.

    Nice on retow.Colurs look spot on and I like how you have used DoF.

    Back to summer- Fields of wheat just outside town. This is only a few kms from Seveso
    where there was a dioxin disaster in the '70s
    As always GX100

    Lovely picture retow. Use of DOF in the composition is very good.

    Thanks Otumay and retow for the great encouragement! I must say that lately I have been in a doldrums with photography. Too much work work work.
