LaFonte: I used x100 on a movie sets. Resolution was there and it is silent (only lack of zoom, but that may not be a problem in small sets)
But kudos to the pelican solution. I always enjoy a good DIY, definitely smart.

The X-Pro1 has a focal plane shutter, not a leaf shutter. Or are there lenses available for the XF-system that incorporate a leaf shutter? Haven't heard of those.

This is really good, the light on the snow-covered ground, the shadow of the tree and the clouds all come together just so. Congrats!

taotoo: Lovely photo. Would be interested in seeing it in colour.

Thanks, unfortunately it doesn't look as good in colour IMO, as it was a dark scene only illuminated by mixed artificial lighting (orange from the streetlights, white from the bus stop itself if I recall).

Cogburn: I just wanted to say, I've really enjoyed looking at your photography. You have a keen eye and a vast understanding of what makes an interesting picture. "Onnea" for 1st place! Keep 'em coming!

Thank you so much for the kind comments, and I'm glad you enjoyed my gallery. It's very rewarding when someone else "gets" images I've made. And I do intend to keep at it!

dmytty: Hieno kuva!

I saw this picture while glancing at the webpage and my immediate thought was 'that looks like Finland'. Looking at the photographer's name was immediate confirmation.

When you take a picture that can make such a strong connection, one with instant recognition, then I think you've captured the essence of that moment.

Seeing the photo, I remember just how cold, still and peaceful it can be while standing on a roadside waiting for a bus.

Snow comes early here
Yet the bus is never late
With the camera in hand

Kiitos!

A long, snowy, cold, dark winter can be a drag, BUT it also creates some of the best photo opportunities!

Thanks, just had to take the camera for a walk after all that snow fell!

HiRez: I think I would like it better with higher contrast (lower black levels), but nice photo.

Thank you for the comment! I wanted to preserve tonality so that things don't fall too black when printed, but it's all subjective of course, and I too might end up wanting it contrastier.

BIJ001: Very nice! I ponder what location it could have been taken from.

Thanks! It was taken in Espoo, Finland.

On One or more Crosses challenge (4 comments in total)

Yesterday I worked over an image just for this challenge, then went to sleep (the submissions started in the middle of the night where I live). Today I came to submit my entry, only to find the challenge full. D'oh!

Maybe a limit of 100 entries would have been better...

Are monochrome images eligible?

This is a fantastic capture, a good idea executed faultlessly. Congrats!

On Wood & Charcoal in the Same Object, Different Form challenge (3 comments in total)

I was honestly surprised to see my entry at 2nd place, I thought there were some really good images here.

Ed, setting the matches up was indeed a bit fiddly!
