    Left a little early this morning and got some pre-dawn light. Both with X-E1 and 18-55:

    cbus_boats_bw.

    Here's the first in B&W (which I actually prefer to the color, though I like both):

    Very nice. Must have been special. In this case I prefer no. 1 because f the colors / mystique.
    Thanks

    Nice shots Jordan, have to admit to liking the B&W more but a very close thing.

    Reminds me of the song " Sitting on the dock of the bay"

    Lovely in color, striking in B&W. It's a toss-up for me, they are all excellent work. I think I generally prefer horizontal photos, so 1 (and 3) win for overall composition but 2 is a beautiful shot that might look even better if it weren't sandwiched between the others and competing for attention.

    I wonder if my preference for horizontal is a result of seeing most photos on a horizontal screen for so many years now - wide photos take up most or all of the screen but tall photos are inevitably smaller and only taking up the middle third or thereabouts.

    Very nice, what was the shutter speed?
    Like both, also but slightly prefer the color, as it has nicer reflections in the water.
    Thanks,
    Dennis.

    EXIF is in tact. I believe the first is 15 seconds at f/14. Second is 10 seconds.
