UK Frosty Morning - LX7 Pics
Dec 13, 2012

Hi All,

We have had a few cold, frosty mornings in the UK lately. I managed to get out with the LX7 today on the dog walk & capture a few shots.

Thanks for looking,

Lee

Thanks for sharing these photos! Your dog reminds me of the dog my sister-in-law had about ten years ago...big dog but very loving to family members. And your photos look a lot like middle Tennessee (Nashville area) the last few mornings....quite cold (25 degrees F this morning) and quite frosty. My car which is parked outside has a good coating of white frost on the windows. I visited London and the surrounding area several decades ago (more than I'd like to admit) and found many rural areas as far as terrain similar to my native Tennessee. Must be another reason why I like the British and their land :-).  Of course, I do have English blood in my genealogy so that's another good reason, right?

Beautiful shots Lee.  I just saw some of those frosty pictures from a friend who lives in England.

Delicious subtle tones/colours that I like. Am eyeing the LX7 for when price drops (in UK). Which shooting mode and PP did you use?

Lovely set Lee, reminds me a lot of our walks with Jack, a golden lab in our local Witch Wood..  Great light, colours; and not forgetting a friendly looking lab but aren't they all :). Stuart

Hi Lee,

Fantastic quality it seems from the LX7. The images seem very sharp with excellent colour and tones.

Can I ask if you have PP these very much and if you have what is it that you tend to change or enhance?

I am seriously looking at the LX7 but as I am in the UK the prices are still a little high! Especially after seeing the US deal recently at $299.

I have seen a couple of sites like Panamoz and Procamerashop where they are offering the camera at £260 - £270 which is better but as I havent dealt with either of these companies before I am a little hesistant.

Also had a look at your main website and again some great images. What cameras do you have as sadly it doesnt say on your webpages?

Thanks

Thanks for the comments everyone, most appreciated!

To answer a few questions - All were shot in raw & processed in LR. No major processing though, just shadow/hightlight adjustments & tweaked contrast & saturation. Probably less than 30 seconds per image.

I prefer to shoot raw, even on compacts as the image quality is always superior to the jpegs & I quite often print fairly large so need the best quality possible.

Thanks again,

Lee

Absolutely beautiful..
In reply to Lee W, Dec 13, 2012

As a new owner of an LX7, all I can say is that you inspire me. Your photography is absolutely gorgeous, you have raised the bar high for me. A good thing.

The dog portrait, did you use a defocus mode, or did you do the blur in post?

Very, very nice.

Kind regards,
rich

Wow, these are beautiful, Lee! My favorites are the first and the third (and i love the one of your smiling dog). I especially like the combination of the clarity in the foreground and the soft mist ahead on the trail in the first one. And I like the vertical orientation of that shot better then the horizontal one at end...

Lee:  Beautiful photos!  I particularly liked #1 and #8 for their composition and the muted misty & earthy colors... I also really liked the portrait of the dog.  Very nice.
