    Project/Resolution


    Straight jpeg from camera, remarkable! Not a High Art shot, but in capturing the lighting perfectly and in deep focus; it is really quite lovely
    Spending the next two weeks shooting only with my Fuji S6000fd. It perfoms very well indeed for a small sensor camera, and is versatile/familiar enough to allow me to focus on images and not equipment.
    Nothing against my other cameras at all.
    I just know the Fuji very very well.
    Plus I've often thought that with the compact F60fd and S6000fd alone I could do 80-90% of my shots with no noticeable loss in IQ.
    So I've decided to put this concept to the test.
    Here is one more from today, this one cropped and exposure adjusted in Silkypix...

    Lili,
    that second shot is a stunner.

    The Fuji ,in your hands, does a great job.

    nice work, lili. no need to get caught up in equipment madness (being one of them myself). notice how pictures taken with compacts sneaking into magazines and books.

    Paul and Wayne, thanks so much!
    Have you seen the news about the new Fuji Bridgecam and Compact Superzoom?
    It is likely all the EP-1 buzz will drown out any talk of them but they do look very nice for us "camera-for-all-seasons" fans

    Re: Project/Resolution

    Today I drove through some of the back roads in Dallas, places where folks work quietly in the back ground
    Behind blank walls

    Or brightly painted ones

    Some walls front Empty Places, that set out lures in hopes of attracting someone

    And fleeting ones of fabric and plastic; holding empty dreams

    Re: Project/Resolution

    yes, lili, some of this new stuff is making me treasure the cameras i have. that f6000 has a lot to offer: zoom, super micro, lowlight iso's, raw, and so on.

    i have been looking a lot at the ep1 stuff. it has image stabilization and faster write times. but...the sensor is smaller than the dp1 and the pixel density three times the dp1. this is why the dp1 pics have the depth of detail of a dslr. also i read at

    http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/EP1/EP1A.HTM

    its focus seems to be as slow as the dp1.

    anyway, i'm becoming very cautious. i'd like to take better pictures and the cameras i have have all proved stunning in the right hands.

    ps. i do think you'd love the detail of a dp1. if you can afford it, shooter's got a good deal! grab it before he changes his mind.

    he had it listed in buy and sell for 450 dollars, and i think that included the viewfinder. give him a jingle.

    here's a sample from today. 126% crop from using the sigma close-up lens. contrast increased. a bit of neat image (this from the raw at 400 iso) and a tiny bit of sharpening.

    Today I walked a bit on the former-and-still-somewhat-prairie that is Frisco
    People built roads and laid in fire protection for Buildings that are not yet there

    But things change fast in Texas Skies

    Despite the Storm there is still Hope

    Blown highlights. That and loss of detail in the shadows is what I look for a proper exposure. Seems to be more acceptable with digital photography than it is with film. And yes, I know, often you don't the luxury of compressed lighting range, but in this image I think all of the fuzzy looking thingies should have full detail and color, not white.

    Your first image is just beautiful -- wonderful exposure! And I like the fire hydrant pic. Nice details in the clouds.

    Thanks Oxide, as to the blown white things, I changed the contrast center and gamma to make them sparkle more, this darkened the shadows a bit.
    Here is the uncropped image as seen straight from the camera

    The tails are indeed very bright, and the shadows deep still.
    But they are not blown here
    That was my doing
