  • Sounds good, will do! Thanks for this! N
  • How can I refuse an offer like that! How do I send? Do you use We Transfer? When I stitch the RAW images in PS and save as Photoshop RAW (.RAW) without cropping or flattening the layers, it is 2.74 ...
  • Thank you both! I found the blue a bit too much. By contrast with that one, the more "neutral" image does appear warmer, which is not entirely consistent with the "mood" of a ruined castle. I think ...
  • Have just got rid of the blue cast, brightened it by half a stop or so and used a layer mask to add detail to some of the darker spots on the castle and hill. Thanks for any suggestions to improve ...
  • Just in case others were unclear on this (as I was, had to Google), I think this is what you are referring to: https://www.diyphotography.net/fujifilm-registers-designs-for-the-modular-gfx-x-omega- ...
  • Created discussion thread Dunluce Castle, Northern Ireland
    Dunluce is one of the more dramatically-set castles in Ireland, standing on a basalt cropping high over the ocean on the north coast. You walk to it across a short bridget, as it is separate from ...
  • Denver is a lovely city, but probably known best for the splendid natural setting, rather than its architecture. I'm more interested in the man-made than the natural, all other things being equal, ...
  • I am in Denver for a meeting, and brought the GFX 100S and lenses. I went to the Botanic Garden expecting to shoot macro flowers, but instead found this shot with the GF 120 macro was my favorite. ...
  • Bob, thank you for the lead, I do have friends in LA whom I visit every couple of years. We don't have a lt of naturally-occuring cacti here on the Emerald Isle! Nathan
  • I decided to give the new GF120 macro lens a  time-honoured workout at the National Botanic Gardens in Dublin this weekend. The weather outside was gorgeous, but the real stars of the day in my ...
  • Created discussion thread A Visit to Ireland's Aran Islands
    The family took me for my 60th birthday to the Aran Islands, in the heart of Ireland's Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking) west. I found out that the GFX 100S plus 5 lenses (GF 23, 32-64, 110, 120, 250) ...
  • Replied in GF lens sales?
    I am based in the UK, and pay £488 per annum to Aaduki in order to cover about £18,000 of photo equipment. I think they focus on the media insurance market. Best regards Nathan
  • Replied in GF lens sales?
    Interesting! So if my lenses are indicative, the total global production for a year might be something on the order of 1500 to 2000 for each lens. I saw no numbers above 300,  but if these were on ...
  • Replied in GF lens sales?
    Makes sense, thank you. So not so niche a product as I feared! Best regards, Nathan
  • Created discussion thread GF lens sales?
    I was registering my various GF lenses with insurance today and idly noticing that in each case, the serial number was of the form YYY00000XXX, where the first three letter/numbers seemed to ...
  • Thanks for this easy suggestion. And fully agreed this is not an exact science, what with changes due to focal distance and the like. My experience seems to suggest that, perhaps thanks to the ...
  • Thanks for that clarification. Nathan
  • Got it, right you are! Thanks for that. So infinity with slider all the way to the left, MFD all the way to the right. Best regards, Nathan
  • Playing with the focus slider, I can see that distance of the object being focused on has much more of an impact than I would have thought. Taking the slider to the far left for the GF 120 gives ...
  • OK, I found the GF 110 as well: https://www.photonstophotos.net//GeneralTopics/Lenses/OpticalBench/OpticalBench.htm#Data/US20180059384_Example01P.txt,figureOpacity=0.25,Pupils If I have properly ...
