A beautiful place beautifully captured. 3 & 5 stand out to me as jarringly ordinary in the series of outstanding photos.

Thanks for your comments. Yeah, I posted #5 just to show the piece.

I mistyped. It was #6 I didn't like. It is too cut off.

Here's another shot of that piece that perhaps you would prefer:

Much better, yes. Not as striking as some of your others, however.

The blue underpants hanging on the pole make it for me. Brilliant.

RE: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54138054

Are the blue underpants and the dissimilar "poles" of the clotheslines Postmodern or Italian Chic?

Re: London museums

This one I like a lot!  If you are adventurous you could replace the sky!  I like it a lot as presented though.

Thank you. There is some cloud activity already yes.

Replacing the sky would be quite strange from this angle, but I suppose it's possible with shots from either the left or the right sides. Good thought.

No insult. I like his photographs of this type. Seriously. I actually like most of his published photographs. Therefore I like this photograph a lot.

This does not mean I enjoy his conversation style ...

An alternative title would be "Romeo and Juliet upside down".

That would need a Juliet, which is missing

I think you did well with leaving her outside the screen giving the reader something to think about.

Photographic adventures waiting for the bus

Did a bit of travelling this week, mostly on the bus. Had my smallest camera, the GF1 ( 20mm) (smallest until the GM1 gets an EVF) The first photo was the result of an error- found I had accidentally set the iso at 3200. But after playing with it, found I liked it better than the ones I took with the corrected iso setting!  The second just appealed to me.

Happy to hear you like it! I was actually intending to take a picture of the two "balconettes" alone but then the guy popped out his head just as I was getting ready to pull the trigger.

Why not? Always factually well-informed, logically coherent, humble, and gentle, wouldn't you say?

OK. So let's settle for "Romeo without Juliet upside down".

An Academic Perspective ...

... from the University of Turin.

Nicely adapted to the 4:3 aspect ratio, although 7:5 would have been even better in this case.

Re: PART 2- Jack - re-post under advice - thanks yyr

A long time Panny TZ/LX/FZ user and forum member, I took the plunge on a G6 this week - the free 45-150mm Panasonic offer made the difference. This is the first image I've processed with the camera, a favourite subject Jack the Labrador - just turned five - our son's dog. So, my first post here. Landscape, architecture and stained glass are my more usual subject matter.

Thanks for the feedback Yaelle. I'm attaching three versions - the original framing (with only color adjustments), with the vertical perspective tilt corrected (still rectilinear projection) and the alternative Panini version that I posted earlier. The goal of changing the projection was to avoid the slight distortion on the left side (in the rectilinear versions the leftest windows look wider than the other) and to make the center more dominant. I'm not so sure anymore that it was necessary here but I still like it more. It seems that I tilted the camera too much in my original framing (in an attempt to leave some space above the clouds).

Perspective corrected (still rectilinear)

Projection changed to Panini (and perspective corrected in Hugin)

Re: Evening

Thanks for posting those - that's a very interesting exercise to see. I'm going to give that a try. What did you use for the original rectilinear correction?

I've used Hugin to de-fish and also to refish a rectilinear shot (7mm) but have never tried it for correcting as you have done.

Re: An Academic Perspective ...

That's really cool! Is that a flat glass window in the ceiling or  a very realistic painting or what?

OK Anders - that's pretty spectacular. Lens? Shall I guess the FE?

Re: PART 2- This Week Through YOUR m4/3 2014.08.02 -PART 2

Finally I got to try out the M10 on a short trip to Croatia. My wife's M10 fell out of the bag before we made it to the car, so hopfully Olympus can repair it, seems something wrong with the shutter( arm sticking out, and only a lot of clicling when turned on

Since we had the PM1 as spare, she got some nice shots too, mainly with the 9-18 which I don't have available so often anymore....

for WA I have to do with the Samyang 7.5.....

All shots are from the old town of Trogir near Split, Croatia. Found nothing worth shooting underwater this time....

Re: Chatting with the neighbors ... Italian style

This is a very pleasant image, the best part of which for me are the colours.
