February 7/28

.low.

07 02 02017

This door is low. A small child might walk in, an adult can not, a low car might drive in and park there. I guess this is some kind of garage. Very unusual for the height of the door. I was always fascinated by this non standard solution of a drive-in or drive-through. Plus it is monochromatic which is a topic I follow currently without doing it fully consciously. I could sure post one hundred shots to the "monochromatic"-thread.

Beautiful scenery and perspective, Fons

Fons, I like the way the trees of different characters line up.  The almost monochrome tone is nice, too.

thank you

I'll pause my effort for a while. Need more REST.

Take a good rest, Frank !

Lovely lines with the train, Fons.

17-35 performs extremely good on the DX-format, but that is not a surprise. The Fuji S5 likes the lens  ;)

John, your images with Fuji S5 are not just beautiful but prove that 6MP DX image can still go strong!

Not surprised. Not at all. Anticipating such response, this was the very reason we changed the format of the 'blog'.

Come back when the batteries are fully charged and there is no pressure to deliver day in day out either.

I had to pause my pause just for today because this fascinated me so much: Some people are continuing their agricultural tradition in the inner city....

  Thanks Akira and Fons.

I wouldn't 'degrade' the Fuji S5 by using the '6MP camera' terminology. The RAF files of 24.5MB and with a size of 4.256*2.848pix  are cleaner and more flexible than the D700 for instance. And have a larger dynamic range.

And it is food for thought the RAW files of the Nikon D600 are not much larger with 29MB at a maximum.

John. The S5 has two sets of six million pixels. Half of them small. Half of them big. This is 12 Million photon counts to be stored in the RAW. Iirc there is no compression in these RAW files too.

I remember a discussion on the old NG that some of our members then carried a D2X and a S5pro, first one for fast operation, second for uncompromising IQ.

The S5pro was regarded as something like an 8 Megapixel camera.

Yes, I have read all these discussions. Agree with the IQ.  Let's just say the Fuji S5 has a different sensor making, even today, great RAW's.  It is a rather slowish camera, yes, back to the basics  ;)

We had some snow during the night, and it's freezing cold....
