yes and no... they are both great cameras. period.

when i think about the future however, i'm not sure if i'll be okay with the fact that all of my images are 5mb files... so, i went with the 5g peace of mind option... plus, this thing has all sorts of added features... kind of like when you sit in a top of the line car... a bunch of crazy little things that might not be necessary but are definitely luxurious... oh yeah, then you actually drive it :)...

I like all of these--serioulsy all of them. I think my favs are
the following:

-- hide signature --

on the G--the guy on the right with the shades is a classic --
and the lady is no slouch either

yeah, i'm really into his face here... his scowl as i've heard it called...

-- hide signature --

Love--a signature FF shot imo--opportunistic. nice

--Victoria--love the angle

--Chuck--it's funny becuase for one of you last sets like this
(when it was raining on my vacation), i had an entire comment
written up and it was lost when I hit preview--i was pi$$ed.
anyway, there was a fellow there who had the similar wrinkles of
time and i just loved it. you have a penchant for getting these
just right. this would look awesome in b&w as well.

oh man, such great stories to be told by the faces of our elderly... i can't get enough... the right light really helps to bring this out...

funny you mention b&w... this one was originally processed as b&w in lab mode... when i saved for web, i forgot to discard the color channels so this version showed up in the preview window... i liked it so i kept it this way - a definite accidental look here but i'm cool with that... i'll put the bw version at the bottom...

It's remarkeable to me to see how you have progressed in this type
of photogrpahy. you may have been at it all along and not posting,
but i feel like you just started posting this stuff within the last
six mos. i can say with certainty that your work of this sort has
improved dramaticaly and you have no doubt amassed quite a
collection of these.

hey, thanks Patrick... i've sort of been doing these since the beginning but i always had a hard time getting the images to print similarly to what i see in my head... i attribute the progress to a better understanding of light and how to better deal with different conditions... i used to look for subjects first but now, i wait until i see some decent lighting before i start really looking for subjects... other times, (such as the subway) i'll try to transfer the dirt light into a gritty image.. still learning though so these thoughts may differ next year...

nice--now i'll have to keep my eyes peeled in two forums--thanks a

we've gotta chat offline--i'll email you this week.

yes, do that... i'm pretty sure i'll be in town for a while...

here's the b&w version... same as the other one except i got rid of some of the channels in Lab..
