    Guy, I bought my GX100 largely because of the comments and images on this forum, so, really, I think you are duty bound to dig deep for those quarters!

    As we all know Guy - it's the camera takes the photo. Wouter is simply a vessel through which the Gx200 displays it's artistic and post processing talents. . . . . hardly more than a humble cipher

    Those windows make you want to go in for a nice cup of tea, don't they.

    That sure is some smart camera you have there Wouter . . . I think Guy would be best advised to buy YOUR camera off you. It'd be silly to go to B&H and get one which might not have quite the same artistic credentials.

    I'm sure you'd be willing to sell it at a premium? Say 3 times the purchase price?

    I've got the Gx100 as well - it's a bit slooooow, and mine doesn't quite have the eye of Wouter's; nice camera though.

    Thanks, Jono,
    Agree, tho' I would say slow rather than sloooow!
    Luckily, like Louis Armstrong, "I have all the time in the world".

    Hi Lili
    All those diagonals - as you say, a lovely shot . . . but then ALL his shots are lovely . . . I find it rather off-putting!

    Do you think if I bought a GX200 I'd be able to do it too?

    Wouter is my inspiration to get one. Jono I need some excuse you know that.

    Seriously Wouter is very talented no question
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Unfortunately this GX200 can only be shipped with a plane seat, and authorization from his wife and kids.

    I am sorry Jono, but thanks anyway But you see compositions too all around your house (and Bergen op Zoom), and amaze us with your work.

    Well - I think we all understand each other pretty well - maybe a GX200 will be a good investment, staving off the M8.2 for a month or two until the dollar/euro prices has an effect!

    Wouter - thank you for the reciprocal words. Tempting to get you over here for a quick lesson . . . . but I'm afraid that stansted airport isn't quite the same thing!

    Jono,
    I think Wouter could use a biscuit tin pinhole camera and it would still look great.
    I know you're being ironic but...
    I thought gettting a Ricoh would help me, and it has I suppose in so far as it gets me using the camera more and helping me understand things better. But then I pick up my ancient (5 years old!) C5050z and get nice and sometimes lovely pictures from that too.Actualy percentage of pix useable the Oly is still beating the Gx100. Although that may be due to the Ricoh encouraging me to take more difficult pictures.


    all the best

    Gandolfi,
    I use 1/3 overlap- perhaps I should change. Autostitch also but I like that and dont have photoshop.
    Here too we have loads of Comercial centres.
    I work in Bergamo airport and next door is the Orio centre- people fly in with Ryan to do their shopping... Were I live you cannot go more than 6 kms in any direction without finding the biggest and best shopping centre! And photography is forbidden too!. Italian shopping centres tend to be very ugly outside, this is to encourage people to escape by entering. More are being built too, despite people being short of money.

    all the best

    Hello All,
    As you may know I just got Photoshop Elements6, so I am a bit like a kid in a toyshop
    Here is an image of the Royal Crescent in Bath, shot from ground level down among the Autumn beech leaves.
    Hope you enjoy!
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Hello All,
    Everything you need for your next tea party (including the cake!).
    Shot through the window of a shop selling dolls house miniatures. The little cups are about 1/3 inch in diameter.
    I thought the tea sets on the doilys look like postage stamps.
    GX100 and PS Elements6.
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Hello All,
    Thanks, Helen.
    I thought FUN was one of the guiding principles laid down by the founding fathers of this forum
    I checked out Chuck Close-some story eh. Great artist/brave man. Perhaps he would have had fun painting the gravel garden in this image of an acer tree in a Bath basement.
    Cheers.

    Hello All,
    Thanks, Paul.
    Here's an interesting little image of a dandelion clock from a few months ago, which I manipulated in iPhoto, then used as my desktop image for today. It was only while staring at it from the other side of the room that I realised what it reminded me of. It is just like one of those exploding rocket fireworks which are so impressive in displays these days.
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Hello All,
    Great stuff as always, Wouter.
    I am still at the stage of enjoying very much just clicking and sliding in PS Elements6.
    A couple of Jpegs shot with the GX100 and fiddled into B/W. The trick is trying to decide when to stop fiddling!
    1st is ancient footpath -2nd is tree in landscaped garden- both not far from Bath.
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Re: Gx100/Gx200

    The barbed wire image is not a crop. The photograph was made in the macro mode at 28mm focal length and I got really close to the barbed wire to get shallow dof. Thanks Neil and Gandolfi.

    Inspired by the tree photographs from Gandolfi.

    Thank you Helen! For me, the new GX200 delivers different images then the GX100. It took a while before I got used to it. I still use Lightroom, but tend to use Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex Pro more and more.

    Wouter, I like the new baby tree growing alongside the dead tree.
    Here are a couple more of Bath, looking north and south at the same crossroads, with GX100 and 19mm lens. Late winter afternoon.

    Thank you Helen, but I am still not sure if this is the style I really want.

    Saint Nicholas arrived in the Netherlands. The kids are thrilled and hope for presents on December 5.











    All these photographs were edited in Photoshop, used Gradient Map, Curves, and Hue/Saturation for the B&W convertion. I also duplicated the image on another layer, changed the blending mode to Soft Light, applied a Gaussian Blur with a radius of 20 pixels, and set the opacity to something like 70%. This results in smoother transitions of different tones in my opinion.

    You Dutch are Crazy
    All this December 5th stuff! Every normal person KNOWS that father christmas comes on Christmas eve . . . he's hardly likely to make an exception for the Dutch is he?
    I will be in Holland all this week - commuting from Bergen op Zoom to Moerdijk. You'll understand from this that it's not a holiday!
    I do hope to take some pictures . . . but they won't be as good as your sparkling shots.

    Do I understand that you are using Nik efex pro and finding it . . . . . too easy? So that it seems like it's someone else's vision rather than your own?

    I feel uneasy about it as well, but when I look at the results . . . .

    You should read this from David Sedaris

    And I am sorry, but Saint Nicholas lives in Spain, not on the North Pole And Saint Nicholas has had a career as a bishop in Turkey

    And I like Nik Silver Efex Pro too, but I was refering to my photograph of the tree trunk

    Sami Claus comes to Swiss houses on the evening of 6th December, sometimes accompanied by a small helper with a sack. He reads from his diary of the year to see how good the kids have been or how much they need to improve...if they have been bad, they get beaten with his Fitze [bunch of sticks]....and if they're very bad, they get put in the sack and taken away.

    OTOH, Christkindli [Christmas Angel] comes on the evening of 24th...so we all get our prezzies earlier than the Brits

    And in NornIrland some sort of Coco-Cola lookalike is already ensconced in his grotty in the mega chapel of commerce
    Sláinte

    Thank you for the link - I really enjoyed it, and I've passed it on to a Dutch friend of mine. Still, I'm disappointed that we have to listen to an American voice to get the maximum humour out of the situation (and that Safari insists that I can't spell humour properly)!

    Re: Gx100/Gx200

    Hello All,
    Nice pictures of St. Nicholas, Wouter. I presume the slight softness comes from the Gaussian blur layer.
    Here is a 180 degree panorama of a road junction in Bath. GX100. 5 shots stitched themselves together excellently in PS Elements6.(though the 4 people walking 1/4 way in from LHS are in fact only 2 people, photographed in 2 different frames!!). I adjusted a bit for contrast and saturation.
    Cheers,
    gandolfi

    Hello All,
    In Bath we even have a mini version of the famous Flatiron Building in New York.
    GX100.
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    Wouter, man, you're a Gx200 bad a*s. Your photos show some serious talent, my friend. You really should start thinking about putting together an exhibition or something.
    I've recently received my LX3 and the quality is really incredible (BW at 800iso can be breath taking), but I freaking hate that you have to go into those menus with the small joystick to set up stuff manually. I'm trying to get my hands on a GX100 o GX200 for a couple of days for a shoot out. I've read the GX200 has the most film like grain around when it comes to 800iso.

    Hello All,
    Autumn leaves with GX100.
    Camera flash on slow setting, 1 sec exposure, I moved camera during exposure.
    Cheers,

    It sure is a fun read.

    Yes, you are right. It can make photos less harsh, especially those from small sensor cameras in my opinion.

    Thanks Rawfa! I am working on a book as a matter of fact. I had hoped to finish it this month, but it will likely be a December project. I am thinking about publishing it with blurb.

    If have seen amazing B&W ISO 800 photos from the LX3 and Dlux4. I am glad you like the images. When I tried the LX3 and Dlux4 at photokina I wasn't so fond of the menu as well.

    Re: Gx100/Gx200

    A Dutch parent has a decidedly hairier story to relate, telling his
    children, "Listen, you might want to pack a few of your things
    together before you go to bed. The former bishop from Turkey will
    be coming along with six to eight black men. They might put some
    candy in your shoes, they might stuff you in a sack and take you
    to Spain, or they might just pretend to kick you. We don't know
    for sure, but we want you to be prepared."

    This is the reward for living in Holland. As a child you get to
    hear this story, and as an adult you get to turn around and repeat
    it. As an added bonus, the government has thrown in legalized drugs
    and prostitution-so what's not to love about being Dutch?
    Wouter, thanks for the link to the Sedaris story. He is one funny writer.

    You are right Kevin. A great story indeed by Sedaris. And today's weather must have been tough for Saint Nicholas. Snow, hail, and strong winds.

    Re: Gx100/Gx200

    Hello All,
    A couple of hours ago the International Space Station passed over Bath again. At the moment it has the Space Shuttle in close attendance ( as I type they are trying to repair the machine which converts urine into drinking water!-can you imagine that! ). I had hoped that there may have been 2 separate trails, but they are obviously too close to one another or the shuttle is too small to reflect enough sunlight. I could not see 2 trails even through binoculars.
    Anyway, I was not going to spend 10 minutes out in the cold for nothing, so here it is as a black line-2 minute exposure- passing near to a black hole and the white dwarf star known as Elements6 in the constellation of Photoshop.
    Shot with GX100.
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    .......loud and clear, Helen, you're coming through loud and clear on channel 21. I'm out in the 11th dimension looking for parallel universes, and the good news is that I have recently received a communique from the I.S.S. to say they have mended the urine/water purification system. Now they will be able to sit back with a nice cup of tea and admire the view.
    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    These are the best I can get handheld at low light with the GX200. Manual mode 1/15 sec, f2.7 and ISO 200. A higher ISO setting would hardly be useful in my opinion.

    Re: Gx100/Gx200

    Hey guys,
    I have been on the fence for the last month about which camera to get for my wife. I love the results you guys get form the GX100/200, and I also love the results some photographers got from the G10. However, I have found a deal on a GX100 w/ VF1 or a GX200 w/o VF1. Which deal would you take?

    G10 is nice too, but I think it's a little big for her tiny hands. My wife love B&W, and the GX100 gets AMAZING shots IMHO.

    I'll get her to join the forum so she can learn from you. I got nothing to offer.
