late autumn (X100)
These are really a very nice series given the conditions there weather wise. I like the natural look in these images very much. Of course always interesting subject matter followed by lovely framing.
Thanks for sharing.
Keep up the good work as your time permits and work of course.
All the best from us to You and Nicole,
Gary & Betty W SFO
appreciated, I actually like that weather when I go to the Dandenongs it brings the colours out to its best and also let me get the feel of the 4 seasons I grew up with other you would have only wet and dry seasons.
appreciated your feedback and yes SF has a lot of this fog. Unfortunately we get it not that often I mean it from the photographers view, that would help to perfect the shooting in such conditions. I like the different times of the year and here in Melbourne you can have everything without to much bothered by it.
When I go to the Dandenongs I llike when it rains or like yesterday we have this mist and fog that brings out the colours even better.
Thanks for your best wishes I pass it onto Nicole.
Cheers and all the best to you as well as Betty,
the park bench
I have a picture,
pinned to my wall.
An image of you and of me and we're laughing and loving it all.
I bow in admiration to your achievement in capturing the autumn atmosphere with such impressive photos.
For me you are the master of the Fuji X100 and I have enjoyed all your inputs in this forum.
Wish I had the talent to use my X100 in such a way to at least roughly obtain similar results.
very nice color and contrast, and sharp, too -- are they from in-camera JPEG engine?
I wonder what the setting is? vivid+high color + high tone?
I would appreciate very much if you can share some clues on setting and processing.
you make me blush but I take your compliment with pride
I have to say it comes all together when you have a great camera a great location and fun in what you are doing the outcome is most of the times great. Sometimes we mess things even so we have had funand the great location but we missed some minor thing. That's what we call learning curve and that is fun as well.
Nochmals vielen Dank Michael
I do shoot JPEG only as I have not that much time. I do think that the X100 gives you such a great JPEG with only minor PP in photo scape you are of and running, this does not mean that you can get more out in RAW. RAW is still the way to go to top JPEG but I'm not a professional and can live with the JPEG for my pleasure.
For the settings I have pretty much all set to standard and do most of the improvement in photo scape. One tip try to use ISO 640 when you have a contrasty area and auto DR or set it to highest but 200 will do the trick.
Your welcome, try a different setting when you shoot B&W till you find the right shadow tone to suit your taste. I use ISO100, Highlight tone: Medium hard
Shadow:medium soft, Sharpness STD, Film SIM:Mono+YE
