For a long time I was sceptical about the set. But couple days days ago I took the plunge and acquired it at a discount price. Initial impression is very good. The most important feature for me is that each plugin works as an adjustment layer which gives me great control and flexibility.
Photos below were taken with X-Pro 1 + Nikkor 28mm 1:2.8 Ai-s

It's been a long winter.

I had a wonderful weekend on the ice of a lake, it was tricky to take a photo of a black dog in white ice and still get some details. Since I do not have a computer with me, this photo is PP with snapseed on an iPad.
I wonder, will this winter ever go away and give me a chance to shot some pics when there actually is some decent lighting?
Nice work. Great subject/use of fisheye.
Another beauty. Which 8mm?
Shot from the Courtney Campbell Causeway between Tampa and Clearwater Florida, would have done a few more but it was kinda cold and windy last Thursday night just after the sun went down. Its a 15 or 20 sec exposure with the 18-55 lens, ISO 200, jpeg. I didn't have my tripod, otherwise I would have got down closer to the water for a better perspective.

I use the Rokinon 8mm fisheye for Fuji X-mount. It costs only about $300 and is a manual lens. The Rokinon fisheye is the same as the Bower and Samyang, just different label. They are built exceptionally well
