It was deliberate. Thank you, though.

How are you finding the files for post processing?

Are you shooting JPEG, RAW, both?

I find my X100 files take PP well, but not a well as X-Pro1 files, so interested to see how this changes with the new sensor (and resolution bump)

sorry - with these pictures can not do anything

one would have to adjust raw images
so that nothing
The photos appear worn away -
or effect-overloaded

the same images should have been done with the X100

brian, beautiful work of Denver, my hometown/state that I sorely miss and miss more after sifting through your images. I am debating purchasing a x1pro with the 35 1.4 or getting the new x100s. I'm curious which one you would go with if you had to choose--thanks and again great work--

I got a chance to get out for a couple of hours today with the new X100S and shoot some street photography in Denver. Check it!

These are really nice images and thanks for posting them. Lets face it this forum is infested at times with trolls and idiots who feed them. I got tired of reading those who polluted this thread but I sure enjoyed your photography. Thanks for the link. You're a very good photographer.

Hey, Jared-- I'm glad you enjoyed checking out a piece of "home."

I definitely choose the X100/X100S over the X-Pro 1. It's definitely a personal choice. My reason is that my main gear is a pair of Canon 5D Mark 3s, with various lenses, but when I want less kit, I really want less kit. I actually put the X100/X100S in my jeans pocket when I want it out of the way completely. Or hanging around the neck, it's just so compact. And I just love the 35mm perspective and I don't feel the need for something that I can change lenses on when I'm keeping it simple. When I need more-- I bring out the big guns. No need to go in between for me.

Thank you very much, MrChristopher!

Yeah, I hang out at various photography forums and I'm honestly amazed at how different this place is. I'm used to a very supportive atmosphere and folks that are more interested in photography as an art form. I know there are still plenty of great folks around here, but it's striking, the difference in the average vibe here-- people offering harsh criticism, when it doesn't actually serve a purpose. As well as the focus on the technical aspects of gear, way past the focus of the art. I used to be a pixel peeper too, but after a while, I think it's helpful to give it a rest and just enjoy taking photos and processing them without even zooming in. 99% of the time when I do make prints, the level of detail you see (naturally) viewing the photo is the same as the way it looks in a normal view on your computer screen.

Hi Brian

Subject matter and compositions look nice but the technical quality of the images - sharpness, exposure, colour - to me on my screen look poor.

I do not like what Instagram has done to the world of amateur photography. I've grown allergic to the instagram toned photos, unless they are original old photos. This effect is just too darn overused today. The topic should be "Street photography", without the X100S.

I like the composition in many photos, but the hipster tone, plz...

Anyone interested in seeing more of my thoughts on the performance (both pro and con) of the X100S, I am continuing to update that section. I've just added more.
