  • I suspected this ... :-) Thanks for your clarification. Thinking about getting one sometime ... Phil
  • No, you're definitely not ... I took several series of 20 each, but only around 5 of this one were sharp enough (the others weren't good at all - wrong focus and/or aperture). Wonder what caused ...
  • I concur! Great capture. I was by chance on my way to try the same thing - got a foto club assignment to take a picture of the moon. I also chose the Q7 - but since I don't have a 400mm lens I had ...
  • Wow! I think your result is already very good. Looks like a hyper-realistic painting somehow. Great idea! Thanks for sharing your result. Glad to! And thanks for inspiring me in return. :-) Phil
  • Nice! :-) I think I like the DNG version best. I am very interested to hear how the GR handles ultra long exposures. Battery drain, longest exposure you achieved, resulting noise etc. pp. It's ...
  • Thanks! I sure know. Even have one of those overpriced original release cables from Ricoh, but didn't have it with me. So B or T was not an option that evening - setup on the small tripod wasn't ...
  • Thanks! RAW, developed in Lightroom -  slightly cropped on bottom and left side, BTW. Phil
  • Thanks! Glad you like it, Rube. :-) Phil
  • This one is pushing the GR to its limits. It was fully dark, around 9:45 pm in the winter. There was very little illumination. Only a street lamp further away and around the corner of the street ...
  • Thanks! DNGs, developed with Lightroom. For me the GR has turned out to be a versatile and very fast camera which is totally unobtrusive in everyday use. I had somewhat of a learning curve until I ...
  • Yesterday evening I strolled through a small town with a quite dominant church. There was some snowfall earlier, and most pavements and streets were wet from it. I had the GR and a small tripod ...
  • Second that ... I agree, but want to stress two things: import it to ProPhoto RGB in 16 bit , work in that color space, and be sure to convert it to your preferred output color space before (if ...
  • Yes. The color differentiation you have in the sRGB range is compressed using AdobeRGB in the moment the 8 bit JPG is processed in camera. It cannot be recovered. Still yes. As said above: what's ...
  • Thanks! Glad you like that one. Was taken at the Ascensore "Reina Victoria" - upper station. I meanwhile redid this pano a little (pulled back the highlights of the bright part in the right half) ...
  • I understand the sentiment, but I think you don't take anything, you honor the work of those artists who did the murals if you hang the pictures you took of them on your walls. I think it would be ...
  • Thanks a lot, Joe! I had a good look at all of them. Very different in style to those from Chile, but some very good ones among them. My favs are the Native American, the Drugstore and the ...

  • Spectacular, aren't they? Ah, have to put that on my list now. Do you have any pictures of them, Joe? Thanks for looking! Phil
  • I bought a Tiltall TE-224 travel tripod this summer - and I'm really satisfied with it. I first thought I could save a few bucks by buying a seemingly sturdy Sirui ball head for it, but after ...
