Wonderful images. Do you mind sharing some of your work flow with these images?

Thank you!  Of course I can share my flow.

Basically I just walk or bike around and if I see something interesting or different from my home in Canada I take around 3 different shots of it from different angles.  I shoot in raw+jpeg at wide screen resolution.  Once I get home I batch the images through an action I created in Photoshop which resizes them to be 1600x900 (my desktop resolution) as well as putting a white frame around the image and adding my watermark for my blog in the bottom right.

For night photos I find raw to be invaluable and find myself constantly adjusting highlight,  shadow, and clarity to achieve a more detailed image appearance and eliminating the hot spots where lights are overblown from long exposures.

I will soon start playing with exposure bracketing and image blending to get a more balanced light setup for night photos and hopefully eliminate some flare effects along the way.

I have played with focus bracketing and could BARELY see any difference so I decided that the feature is completely useless to me.  I wish the s100 could have different lenses however I'm extremely happy with the camera regardless
