    Had a few free hours today, beautiful weather so I took the brick and the 1855 on a walk. Couldn't wish for a better (albeit slightly lighter) rig, the 1855 keeps blowing me away.
    The sky was dark-blue, almost like in Tibet at 6500m, couldn't get enough.

    Thanks for looking !

    All this while other folks had to work ... long live procrastination, overdoses of café solo and Fuji Xes.

    Nice set of pictures, and indeed wonderful skies! Did you use a polfilter? Or any pp? Just curious!

    Thank you, just some fun with the brick and some sliders in Silver Efex.
    For the skies I use both, glass filters like the Hoya 25A and R72 (the 72 not for these shots) and digital red filters like in Silver Efex Pro 2 or Lightroom.
    Sometimes I have to remind myself that the brick has a colour sensor. So here are two shots of the Casa de Colon, allegedly the last stopover of old Chris Columbus on his first trip to India.
    Still amazed at what a great lens the 1855 is.
