    Really nice shots, first and last ones are my favorite. Both really atmospheric. Is that last one HDR? I like how the interior has full detail but so does the scene outside, gives you that "being there" feeling.

    I have to say I think I see a bit of extra something in your latest shots with the Fuji. Looks like it's serving you well :D

    Thanks, Jay! Yes it is HDR with a very wide set of brackets. Quite a lot of difference in brightness between that wall and the scene outside. Also a LOT of brushwork to clean up the flare/halation effect around the window in the brightest shots. That's pretty much a given no matter how nice a lens you use, lol. The next to last one is also HDR.

    And I appreciate the feedback on the "progression" of my shots with the Fuji. It takes a bit to get used to a system. I'm finding the limits of the jpgs (which are few really) and shooting more raw as needed -- though not as needed as it was with micro four thirds where I pretty much always used it. Using the "Drive" button is second nature now. Drilling with a camera really gets the muscle memory set, lol.

    John, your stuff is always such a pleasure,
    Your skill and eye are without measure.
    I would like you to compare,
    Your Fuji to µ4/3 if you dare.
    And let us know what difference there may be,
    Between the two systems as your eyes see.


    The first and the last,
    My vote I cast.

    With Micro Four Thirds
    'Twas hard work to acheive
    The sharpness and detail
    Without which I grieve

    But Fujifilm's sensor
    Though quirky and strange
    Gives so much more detail
    And a wide color range

    Of course there's a downside
    There's always a catch
    For instance no touchscreen
    For my finger to scratch

    Things are a bit bigger
    Though it won't kill the deal
    I'll carry this system
    With vigor and zeal

    I love old school rings
    And levers and dials
    When I shoot this bugger
    It's nothing but smiles

    Is it "Baby Leica"?
    I've no frame of reference
    To superior systems
    I'll still pay my deference

    Micro four thirds is great
    I never would knock it
    And frankly it leaves
    More bread in the pocket

    But I'm still carrying smaller
    Than my DSLR did
    And the quality's stunning
    And you I'd not kid!

    You suggested I try it
    I'm eternally grateful
    But some other people
    Seem a little bit hateful

    I'm no partisan guy
    Or a fan of a maker
    I'm just an old
    Broken down picture taker!

    I hope this brief missive
    Does answer your query
    And that my poor verse
    Doesn't leave you weary!

    I like how the green window covering provides the classic colorwheel red and green. Nice verse..

    John, your urbex shots are always nice to check out, and with the Fuji colors to top it all.

    Thanks folks!

    And thanks for not responding to my verse with more verse because then I'd have to ANSWER again in verse... I could hurt myself, lol.
