That Fuji 18mm f2 lens is a beauty; I 've got one too on my X E-1. Many in the Fuji fraternity don't realise how good the quality and the size of this lens. One of Fuji's first for the X Pro lens line-up.
Well done good image.
cheers Dave S

the second scan...just quickly adjusted to approximate exposure in Fastone edit, then used to joint he two images together with some semblance of matching exposure...very quick slide ...just lucky guesstimation!

In reply to:

snowboarder: If I only want Camera RAW update to the level of $150 Lightroom,
I need to purchase full CS6 upgrade for $350.
Why can't you simply release Camera RAW as a separate
software for $49 or so and allow me to keep my CS5 I'm
perfectly happy with?

I'm still on CS4. Can't beat Photoshop for dodging and burning layers.

But I don't like the library system type organisers, and store my downloads as dated folders. I like to see the small jpg images within the directory folder view. I haven't managed to make this happen in Bridge.

Has cs6 improved its folder views???

cheers Dave S ;)

But I love FastStone for it's organisational, renaming, simple basic editing. Has jpg's in the folder view.

The girl with the dog...in my opinion the bokeh is really ghastly.
