    Cheers,
    Thanks Simon. I'm not sure which deserves more credit, the DP2 or Nik Color Efex and Silver Efex Pro.

    The two colour images are playing tricks with my perception. I know the images are on a screen but they are so clear and lifelike that my brain won't accept it! Very strange feeling that I'm looking at a 3D image.

    Does anyone else see it or am I over tired or something?

    Will,weve both caught the same illness,Im seeing the same thing.
    Bill to start with these are great photos and the camera apart from yourself has played its part.The plugins youve used are used on many images from more ordinary cameras but the images dont achieve this naturalness of space......all the best,Neil.

    Will and Neil, thanks for the comments. I actually hadn't noticed that 3D effect until you mentioned it. I guess that'll teach me not to do this stuff until I've had my morning coffee. The Nik filters are pretty amazing, as long as you keep them under control. It's very easy to get carried away with them, although that can work too if it's what you want. In any case, I'm extremely pleased with the DP2, and of course the Nik plugins. Now I just need to get busy and take some pictures.

    One more

    Here's the kimono girl in front of the place she is advertising for. It's a "Slot" place where they have a Japanese version of slot machines. It's a good way to dispose of any excess cash you may have on you.

    Thanks Wayne. I think I'm starting to get a feel for PPing the DP2 files. Fun stuff!

    Bill, nice pix. What city were they taken in?

    I like the b&w most, would like to see less DOF in it. The pole to the right of the girl is actually the primary subject in that image. The girl is secondary, but whatever, the camera is a new critter for you to be handling. Nice stuff.

    Those were all taken in Shibuya, close to the station. I thought about that pole behind the girl, but in the end I decided to just leave it as is. Shooting from the hip out on the street you often have to take what you get. It's all good fun though.
