Toronto Ice Storm: Beauty and the Beast
Dec 24, 2013

I thought I'd share some images of the ice storm (good, bad and ugly). I took the shots using both the D800 as well as my recently acquired x100s. Can you tell which image is from which camera?

Thank you for viewing.

How could a $999 camera give images comparable to D800? Is this supposed to be a joke? Lovely shots nevertheless...

Those with the sky in the background, and the close-ups with the very shallow DOF are really nice.

Thanks for sharing.

And when you DO, we feel the effect up here in Canada with high prices and poor quality fruit brought in from other parts of the world.
