Thanks Merlin, thanks Jerryy. I went looking for something to post because Jerryy poked me in the ribs with his elbow the other day (rightly so) 🙂

These were taken with the X-T10 and 18-55 in the Austrian Alps.

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:
