Fuji X100 !!

After a horrendous start to the year, I have found my enthusiasm for photography has been squashed and then stomped upon!! But the amazing True North Mark and Camera Solutions (Murray Street Mall) got my creative juices flowing again.  Thanks guys.

Several photographers met for a walk around Murray Street mall with cameras in hand.  Having rushed to Perth the previous week, I came without my trusty 5D II, but was able to use the Fuji X100.

Not having used the camera before, I was seriously under-prepared for the outing, (and looked like the poor relation next to all the beautiful big Canons, and the odd Nikon) but I soon fell in love with it and am keen to shoot with it some more.

The following are some snaps taken on the night and I must point out that I shamelessly stole the idea for the lady in the fountain from the one and only fabulous Nigel Gaunt of Red Dirt Photography.

Calm after the Storm

This is a 5 stich pano done in CS5.  Gotta say, that program takes all the hard work out of stitching. I haven’t had to retouch at all.  I have left this shot pretty much straight out of the camera, but have added a little cooling filter to take down the yellow tone some.
