Here's another of my imperfect favorites.  You can't see it too well in the downsized version, but it's really noisy, esp. for the iso (possibly a victim of the GH2 iso bug).  Doesn't really matter though as I like the effect and the extreme low contrast that came with shooting on a very foggy but reasonably well lit morning is charming to me.

Thanks, it was quickly done for fun. I got another set of big eyes here, less colorful but more true to reality, though. His eyes went from deep blue to jeans/greyish blue after some months.

Needs some PP, but we are in the "imperfect" thread anyway.

One of my practicing snaps. Rather imperfect composition, but love the fun of having that "No swimming!" sign in there.

I took this with a water-damaged TZ5. The zoom and who knows what else won't work, and the camera asks to be turned off after 3 seconds. This is a photograph of the stack in Sudbury Ontario - a hard nosed nickle mining city with a huge refinery.  My daughter the painter likes it too, perhaps because I am her dad.

Give me your blurry, unsharp, noisy photos, yearning to be free!

We talk a lot about finding a camera that performs perfectly.  Sometimes looking back through my shots, I find that some of the ones that I like best aren't the sharpest, or the most noiseless, or the most perfectly focused.

This is the thread for them.


Probably a picture for the new dpreview site but ....

This shot isn't available any more.   It was hastily taken, then as I was refining. . . I was asked what I was doing and needed to produce ID.    Last I saw of it (West stop on the Times Square Shuttle), the view was covered over.  I believe this was with one of the Pens and a CV Nokton 35/1.4 Classic.

One of my favorite chairs.  It's not all that comfortable, or at least I sit in it rarely.   But situated where it is, I relax every time I regard it.

The imprecise focus give it an energy that counters the imperfection.

I like it.

I’m surprised how much Wikipedia contributes to the forum.

GF-1 OIS on, 1/50th evidently wasn't fast enough for this shot with the PanaLeica 45mm:

Re: Sunrise in Prince Edward Island

The stacked ND filters got into an uncomfortably strong vignette by my usual standards.  And the long exposure is prone to some noise when you peep.  The colours, however, are lovely.

Re: fairytale moment at the farmer's market

Very cute composition.  On screen, the missed focus is no big deal.
