I do really like the shot RB. It speaks volumes, and the viewer can read into it (as we have all done) what they please.
Great image.
I cant help but like a button/pin that relates boobs to Star Wars.
Win Win for me.

There is certainly a look of distrust or trepidation in her eyes

ric63: Hi Jim,
After looking at your gallery, it seems you DO know a thing or two about photography.

Are you not happy with the winners or the images themselves and their technique.

Just asking as an interested photographer, as I too, while don't mind the images, don't feel they are anything truly special.

Then I don't know if he has hit his mark or not.

Interesting only in the fact of age difference, would have been good if it was a yearly project.

BTW
They seem to be the most unhappiest young ladies I think I have ever seen, staged or not.

mononk: I certainly do not appreciate the type of pictures you post on these so called "real world sample gallery". Would you publish any of these shots in your SHOW CASE. Come on guys, work a little harder, you are supposed to be pros.

Point taken RAW

Sorry mate,
I know I'm not comparing apples with apples here, but I was referring to my RX10. I just keep comparing the best value and IQ of the RX10 to things that are many more times expensive. I just don't get the huge dollars for ordinary results just based on the badge. Hope you can see where I'm coming from.

My RX10 produces fairly faithful images right from the box, that are just a little on the punchy side.
P mode and some adjustments up or down, give you what you need.

ric63: I really was looking forward to seeing these images, but I'm sorry to say the only thing good about the images is the photographer and the composition.
The camera clearly does not take a vibrant sharp photo, inside or out.
Colours seem to be accurate, but lack punch and wow factor.
There are so many cameras out there that deliver much better IQ for a fraction of the price.
I really wanted to like this camera as a friend of mine is about to buy one.

I like both to be honest, and I'm sure Leica would post very punchy images through their marketing department, as people want to be wowed to be enticed to spend that sort of coin.
I like car images to be true and accurate, but like flowers, landscapes etc to be a bit punchy.

Barney, as I mentioned your photography is first rate, the camera just does not suit your ability.
Love the old car photos, love the deserted town look and feel,
Love the settings and subjects.
Can you please go back and do exactly the same with an RX10?
:-)

km25: Sorry if I step on toes. The images would more vivid and lively, if the subjects were. The problem with "real world" images are, they need be well, less real and more special. I am sure the old Sony RX1R is a good camera with a fine lens. The Leica should also be the same, come on how bad do you think Leica lens are and the people at leica know what sharp is. The bad part of the Q is price, but Leica has never known for bargain prices. The Leica Q is a better operating camera then Sony. It has a EVF, as part of the camera that is Hi Rez. The Leaf sutter also lends it's self to this kind of camera, not for race car photography, unless they a standing still. I think the Q is a better camera then these images show. It is amore advanced camera then The Sony Rx1r.

Agreed, that's why these images should be so much better.

Mina J: This is an absolutely beautiful photo. Let me know what kind of plane it is. You did an awesome job of photographing it.

Hi Mina.
Thank you.
This is an Avro Lancaster. Its title is G for George.
I will post an image in my gallery as to where he gets his name.
