Two country shots (XZ-1)
Oct 30, 2011

Here's a couple of XZ-1 shots from a recent trip:

Larger size shots on Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/thepowersthatbe/

Not entirely happy with that sky yet, that may change.

Why is the Resolution so Low?
In reply to meanwhile, Oct 31, 2011

Nice shots, but I'm wondering why the "original" size on Flickr is only 2.5 megapixels? Did you reduce JPG resolution before uploading to Flickr? Or have the XZ-1 set to a lower resolution? Flickr will store a full resolution original making it not only a good place to exhibit your photos but also an on-line backup.

I generally export to 50% size for Flickr, but I'd be happy to put up the full size images if you'd like. No-one has ever asked.

Those are nice pictures...the reason the sky is bright like that in the first photo is because you were shooting into the light. Then if you got yourself in another position (where the light was at your back), you'd have to hop the fence and get kicked by the horse. I'm just guessing that there was a fence there. Where did you take this picture?

Ken, the images are now up on Flickr at full resolution (albeit with a slightly different crop on one, and some updated PP, first ones were done on the laptop).

Thanks! Yep on the light, the sky looks completely blown at default exposure, but there is a surprising amount of cloud detail still in there.

Then if you got yourself in another position (where the light was at your back), you'd have to hop the fence and get kicked by the horse. I'm just guessing that there was a fence there.

No fence, was a couple of metres away in the paddock. The foal was starting to look like she was letting mum know she'd had enough, so I grabbed what I could before I left. Wanted to get one with the tail flick.

Where did you take this picture?

I've added location info on Flickr . They are from a small "town" (it's more like a service station, pub, and a few houses and farms) in New South Wales, Australia, called Sandy Hollow.
