    New GRD2, first shots

    I recently gave in and bought myself a Ricoh GRD2, and thought I'd post some "first roll" shots.

    Haven't had a lot of time to play with it, but I'm really enjoying it so far. It did take me a day or two to warm to the thing, but then something clicked and now I love it!

    I really like the geometry of the first shot. Congrats on the new camera

    I like these, too, especially the first and third ones. I noticed the color profile is Adobe RGB, which will looked faded on the web to those without an Apple computer, which takes into account the profile. Convert them to sRGB and they'll look better. Also, post the full size ones!

    have you tried making #1 B&W? I love all the textures and angles in that shot, and it might really work doing the high contrast thing.

    Or not. I've been wrong quite a few times

    #3 rocks if you tweak it. Lemme know if you'd like to see it, helgipelgi.

    Thanks all, and regarding BW; I decided to work primarily in color with the GRD, mostly for the sake of continuity. I've always been tempted to use black and white when I think it works better for a particular image, but I find that deciding on it beforehand works better in the long run.

    Oh, and thanks for the Adobe RGB tip. I use Macs both at home and at work, so I didn't even think about it.

    Here are some more from today:
