Open Topic. Let us combat the global warming. This one seems fit for a PF2019 greeting. PF2019 everyone !

The distant high peak is Monte Antelao (3264m), further to the right (invisible) is Marmolada (3343m).

I rather like this one. Looks like a nicely peaceful scene, but if you want to see what the conditions were really like, have a look at  this (with sound on !). It was freezing cold, I could hardly operate my poor camera.

Wonderful and inspiring set, George!

Thank you, sir ! You are very kind. I was just lucky to be there at the right time. But, on a holiday with my three sons and my wife, as usual, it was a "shoot quickly and run" affair - no time for some serious business like using a stative or filters or composing carefully. These were all taken with my X-T10 (before I bought the X-T2). What a little jewel of a camera that is.

I am really enjoying the series you are sharing with us, but after listening to that audio I also hope you are keeping warm!

Do not worry Jerryy, chasing our sons keeps me warm all right. But you ought to dip your feet in some snow (nudge). I know you are the king of Fall Pictures, but the fall season is over ! This is an open topic ! 😎

Now this one is weird. It is SOOC (except for a slight lift of the shadows to brighten up the trees a little). I did nothing at all regarding sharpening (sharpening zero) and I took the JPG, not the RAF. I just resized it to smaller size and that is what I put here. I dunno how it looks like on FullHD screens (I have a 4K monitor), but on my screen it looks so insanely sharp that it is too much I think, both the full size and the resized one. What I find interesting is, usually with C1 when I open a RAF it looks better or at least as good as the SOOC JPG, with defaults. But with this image and a few similar ones from the same series there is no way I can tweak the RAF to get the same amount of detail (is micro-contrast the popular term?) as the SOOC JPG. Somehow the RAF looks way softer than the SOOC JPG, no matter how I try with sharpening, structure etc. Anyway, here it is:

    • Nice. Which one was taken with X100F?
    • Father and Sons in Yellow Shirts - Dhaka, Bangladesh Fujifilm X-T3 - XF18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS - Fujifilm Classic Negative Color Film Sim  
    • I can confirm this. My X100V had the same as do some of my other XF WR lenses. The fact that some lenses do and others don't (same lens) leads me to believe that Fuji has quite wide production tolerances. Over the past 7 years I've had (partly still have) 13 different XF lenses. 4 of them needed replacement due to production failures (loose aperture or focus rings, crooked mount...). Though I really like Fuji cameras, to me that is a bit too often...
    • It's quite a difference. As a basis the Leica Q2 already has a very good 47Mp full-frame sensor paired with one of the best lenses ever made (a 28mm Summilux). By leaving out the color array filter on the sensor and optimizing the sensor lenses for monochrome images, you get an incredibly sharp and contrast rich monochrome image. Without the color array filter you also boost the low light performance and expand the dynamic range of the sensor by approx. 2 stops. In the meanwhile, I couldn't resist and purchased a Q2 Monochrome. I'm not disappointed. Though my X-Pro produces very nice Acros files, the Q2 Monochrome is a different league (also in price to be fair). I usually shoot monochrome for my personal work, but to be able to shoot at ISO25000 and have files as clean as an X-Pro at ISO1600 is amazing. At normal ISO levels, the level of detail and the tonality of the Q2 files is stunning. Both for the jpegs out-of-camera and the DNG raw files via Capture One.
    • I use Blender, it's an open source program, free to use and many good tutorials on YouTube. The program is also used by professional moviemakers. It does the same or more as the apps recommended above. link to Blender Edit: Davinci Resolve is another free video editor worth trying.
