    Great shot of some "high-tech" from 1955! (a vintage year...)

    Thanks, Tim.

    For another view of that great year you should watch the first 5 minutes (or all of it!) of the Shell film of the 1955 Belgian G.P. on You Tube.

    Then compare it with this weekend's upcoming U.S.G.P. Different worlds.

    Here's a 1960 Cooper which will accommodate the fuller figure

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    This reminds me of a picture of Ken Clarke at a photo opportunity (about 15 years ago), when he attempted to get into a single-seater race car, and got stuck. Of course, it turned into an "opportunity" for ridicule, as so often happens when politicians try this kind of stunt...

    'Ridicule' and 'politician' in the same sentence? Shurely shome mishtake

    He certainly would not have fitted into this pretty little Lotus 25 with which Jim Clark won the world championship in 1963.

    Clark completed 4 Grand Prix in a row using the same set of tyres. This weekend in Austin the tyres will have been designed to fall apart after a dozen laps

    The mechanic with his hand on the roll over bar was one of the team which worked on these cars back in the day.

    Here a couple of riveting snaps

    An old steam engine boiler is the perfect subject matter to demonstrate this fine little camera's capabilities at 3200 ASA.

    It really is an astonishing camera, and your "rivetting" ISO 3200 shots are good examples.

    The RX100 seems to find a way to amaze me almost every time I use it.

    ah ha. Actually I sometimes think that my jokes, pound for pound, get more 'likes' than my snaps. Must be doing something wrong.

    However, like you, Queen Victoria was not amused. (Cropped 3200 ASA)

    gandolfi, love the art of the brick wall, it creates an impressive backdrop for the buildings surrounding. Also some nice architectural shots is Bristol, well done

    I agree with mazor, and I particularly like the first three. The curved bridge/walkway is probably my pic(k) of the bunch.

    I rather like the processing - nicely understated and avoiding oversaturation. This suits that type of city architecture shot, IMHO. What sort of "tickling" in iPhoto did you use, and were you working on Raw files or Jpegs?

    Re: Sony RX100 - getting started

    Hi Mazor,

    Thanks. Bristol seems to have a lot of graffiti/street art, and here and there some snappy architecture too. I still have no reason to change cameras, tho' there are some other nice little ones like Ricoh GR, Nikon A and new Panasonic GM1 (the body of which is smaller than my RX100!) Also if phones keep improving like your Nokias, that's all we'll ever need!

    Tim- still I only shoot Jpegs. Tickling in iPhoto is mainly detail, shadow and highlight, and sharpening. Sometimes I add a bit of contrast. I usually find myself sliding sliders between 10% and 40%.

    Also I recently bought the Sony stick on grip for 9.99.

    Here are some 2 wheelers.

    Cheers,

    Gandolfi.

    The quality of the Jpegs from the RX100 is excellent.

    Does this affect the "pocketability" of the camera?

    The grip is the AG-R1 and I got mine from the Sony Centre in Bath. It is a good add-on and does not affect pocketability.

    Those old bikes were at Goodwood last year!

    Cheers.

    I like that... somewhat abstract, and very atmospheric. It might work well as a high-contrast mono, too.

    Nice - I like the atmosphere. Any unusual processing that you'd care to share?
    BTW... looks like Bear Flats, if I'm not mistaken...?

    Ta. By the time I've finished manipulating a pic and pressed 'save to desktop' I never quite know what I've done.

    But I've generally overslid the sliders for contrast and structure, added a bucket of grain and some vignette plus burn edges and a wee bit of toning and that's it!

    And yes Bear Flat it is.

    Cheers.

    You do get around to some interesting places!

    I like this set - my favourite being the "I love Paris" T-shirt girl next to the billboards. Atmospheric, and the processing is just right, to my eye...

    I was after the 'feel' of a post war Cinecitta film still - perhaps something starring Anna Magnani

    Starting with the tea the locations are Oxford (Ashmolean), Swindon (Steam museum) and Siena.

    This one is through the ramparts at San Gimignano. This one at f11 - don't go that tiny very often!

    You know me, Mazor, I'm just an ordinary point and shoot sort of guy, and I try not to let anything worry me any more, especially diffraction issues

    Here is a pic to illustrate the point you made a few days ago.
