    Ditto, Brian.

    Loving these GX-100 shots. Inspirational to say the least and speak well for the capabilities of this little cam.

    Great work, all!

    Pleased that you are back in action!

    Can I ask how long it took to get fixed?

    Have you any strategy to prevent dust getting in again?

    Re: Ricoh GX100

    Thank you Peter. It took only a week In total 1.5 weeks including contacting and arranging the collecting date. I am very pleased with the excellent service.

    But I have no strategy to avoid dust. I asked Ricoh if the HA-2 adapter was an option, but they didn't know. They said the GX100 was an 'indoor' camera. So I will keep on using the camera anyway.

    Great composition Paul. There is a lot of depth in your photo. I personally not a fan of selective colouring and would love to see a B&W version as well.

    I thought I would add some colour in my work too.

    Your B&W is always dead on FAB
    The Color shot is wonderful in terms of Composition & delicacy of tones
    +++++++++++++
    Paul /pcheywood
    Loved the two tone quality in your shot /Pure Magic......there is an other worldliness about it which I don't think could be achieved in Pure B&W

    All,
    going home from work saw people stopping their cars and motorbikes to shoot this scene of a potato field-there's a lot of people running round with digicams in their pockets!

    Waited for the sun to get a little lower , got out the Gx100 and a polarizer.I think I didnt need to use the polarizer but the flowers were really
    reflecting a lot of sun.Behind me Blue sky-in front a storm coming up.Spot on the left is a bird.All CC welcome ,especially criticism-
    all the bast

    Paul.

    I think the red lanterns work spectacularly in this shot. I'm not usually all that keen on selective colouring either, but this image is so strong, and it is done in such a graphic way that it really works well. I think the difference between this example and a lot of other selective colour images is that this image would work well in pure B&W, so it isn't a case of an image being rescued by the use of colour.

    Re: Ricoh GX100

    Paul,

    It's a nice scene, captured well. My comment would be that I think I would have tried to include more foreground as it's more of a "payoff" than the sky. If the top of the shot was level with the top part of the white area (in the left side) of the sky, I think you still have enough drama in the upper part of the image but it would allow the flowers to dominate more.

    There you go, $0.02!

    Cheers,

    I didn't realise that you could get yellow flowered potato plants. Looks a bit like what we call oil seed rape (Brassica napus) in the UK.

    Thanks Simon-I will be trying that-I have been looking at the cropping I can do, thats one I havent tried (tried 1:1 as well as 3:2 with more foreground but not as much as you say to try).
    Will
    rapeseed-Dead right.My mum always called these yellow fields potato so thats what i thought.I did check on wiki (not very well)and the flowers are either purple,silver or yellow.Checked out wiki again and its rapeseed.the leaves are a giveaway!Thanks will correction being made to Flickr.

    Paul,

    A final kick at the cat... your horizon looks tilted slightly down to the lower left and I might try to burn in the clouds just a bit to add some extra drama and increase the contrast between upper and lower.

    Paul,
    The crop really brings out this photo. I concur that I would burn the sky a little, but I would also dodge those trees in front of the mountain. This is a beautiful shot!

    Another great pic Wouter.

    Thanks to all for the constructive criticism.To the right of this scene is a concrete industrial estate,left too.Behind the trees more concrete....I'm surprised the cranes arent visible too.
    Now theres the old new government we'll soon take care of this space with some concrete.

    Paul,
    If it wasn't an excellent photo to begin with, no one would have said anything. Your photo has so much potential that it was hard to ignore the suggestion. Everyone can feel free to make suggestions on mine anytime.

    We had wonderful weather this week with beautiful light in the evening. I had lots of doubts though about these photos, because I prefer B&W, but I thought these would work so well in colour too.

    Re: Ricoh GX100

    yeah i think im going to go for the GX100, just been trying to find the best price i can.

    fotosense.co.uk
    has a good deal £479
    for the GX100 + viewfinder, DW6 Wide lens, HA2 Hood, SC45 case, BD60 Spare battery, GS1 strap, Extreme III card.

    im not that fussed for the viewfinder though and thats a lot of money to sell out.

    im thinking about getting just the GX100 from jessops.co.uk which have it for £269
    and just get a Extreme III card. then purchase the lens and hood in the future from elsewhere (jessops dont have any in stock and have been struggling to source them).

    The reason i'm thinking about getting it from jessops is that i live 5 mins from the store and if anything goes wrong with the camera i can just take it back there rather than sending it back to a shop somewhere else in the uk or whatever.

    I fully agree on the viewfinder. I know some how really love it, but so far I have no regrets not buying it. Maybe I will look for an optical viewfinder, unless the DP1 will be selling out too.

    Re: Ricoh GX100

    Yesterday I used the evf all morning.Light was very strange and the LCD was not easily viewed.I took about 400 pictures of Cheerleaders jumping.
    Without the viewfinder i couldnt have got through the morning.
    I also found myself using the optical viewfinder on my olyc5050z,the light was that strong and white.

    There are times the EVF is really good to have.This was one.
    Also as it folds out you can do things like shoot sideways,overhead etc.
    If you can get the EVF bundled its a bargain.Bit less if you buy it seperately.

    At least two ways:

    1. Upload them to Flickr or Imageshack or whatever - file hosting sites, then copy and paste the URL [it tells you which to use for forums].

    2. 'Go Advanced' here, look down under 'Additional Options' for 'Attach files', click, then use it to browse your computer for the pix. This will 'attach' them to your message.

    There are size limitations for attaching files - it tells you the maximum sizes in kb and the pixel dimensions for jpgs etc.

    Faststone has a very simple and easy to use resizer for 800 by 600 pix for use here [and it's free, though donations are encouraged]. Big files can be very slow to load - and there are still those who don't have broadband.

    Another picture from Bangkok, this time from Sukhumvit Road, and shot from the hip.



    Sorry about the quality (may have to replace it). I prepared the image for starting a photosharing account, but it seems to have lost sharpness and bite since uploading?

    Would that be normal, and should I be be approaching PP in a different manner for upload at that site?

    I have the same finder for use with my GD and it works great, just beware if you've long lashes; the eye-relief is not great so you can get mascara on the eye piece!

    Thank you Cindy and Lili for the reply. I will avoid using mascara, Lili And yes Cam, it will look awesome on a DP1 too. I know you wo: uld love to!!

    Thank you Helen, Joan, and Paul for your comments.

    @Antara: I fully agree with Joan. The first photo is fantastic. I think the perspective is great, and there is still a feel of symmetry because of the reflection in the table.

    @Paul (pollobarca): Great image and perfectly timed. That sky certainly has that beautiful Ricoh blue. Excellent composition.

    @Paul: Thanks for sharing your photograph. I think it is very good in combination to the grainy feel. What ISO did you use? Looks great in B&W. For getting the feel of sharpness you could do an extra sharpening after you resized the photo for webpublishing.

    Thanks, Joan, Paul and Wouter for you comments.
    Paul, just to let you know a little about this B&W shot.
    ISO 80, sat securely on the table for the perspective, and so she wouldn't notice! EV -0.7 , Ap 8.1, Shutter 1 sec.
    These are not my normal settings for an indoor shot, but I'm sure it contributed to the clarity of the image. In PS, Curves and a little dodging and burning to accent her face and the reflection. It was a lucky shot, because I was being very sly and snapping away trying to be invisible.
