i am posting here for the first time and don't have that issue now. my photos are stored in full resolution on smugmug in srgb color space and just linked here. they look fine. they usually come from raw images flagged as rgb-pro or adobe.

lots of colors here . i think it may just be a case of mis-matched color spaces.

Here is an example to illustrate my point. Same exact picture, the first one is stored on Flickr, the second is stored on the forum's servers:

Right, the problem is with the thumbnail only.

mathjak107 - great macro shots, and thank you for posting those candid street shots taken with X100S. They caught my eye, as since the X100 was first announced, it has been on my radar as a definite contender if and when my old Canon 20D ever bites the dust. I''ll be looking for something more compact, and as a 24mm f1.4 lens is the one I use the most on the 20D, I don't think the single lens will be much of a disadvantage.

How do you like the handling? From everything I've read it seems a pleasurable camera to use, with great image quality.

The handling is great as i added the real right stuff L-bracket and grip.

It now mounts vertically and horizantly on my gitzo monopod and tripod as well as instantly attaches to the black rapid strap.

It is now arc swiss compatible with the grip and bracket.

The more i use the fuji the more i like it for travel and people.

NM - issued already addressed

I also use Flickr for file sharing, due to compression problems.

A lot of nice photos going up, BTW

I have seen so many pros get excited about this camera, that I know it must be a camera that is not only good on paper - it looks like it works really well to take photos with too.

Thanks for your feedback.

where i find it isn't the right camera to use is indoors with flash with people. lots of red eye. very low light or fast moving objects are not the greatest either.

but scenic shots and street photography are awesome.

One from yesterday


Wet Mountain Valley, Colorado by KBColorado, on Flickr

... and a couple from this morning. My favorite day for shooting sunrises is the morning after the full moon. Full moon is nice but it sets behind the hills long before sunrise. This is the Sangre de Cristo range of the Rockies in south central Colorado. Clicking on the panorama gives a much better sense of what's going on in that photo.

Nice shots Paul. I was chasing that same moon a few nights ago in Arizona, but I couldn't get to the edge of the mountains soon enough

Really like the composition on the last shot Paul. All the lines move the eye toward the low spot on the horizon, and the fact that the moon isn't all the way down in that low spot gives it a feel as if it's being pulled in that direction. Kind of like you can feel the 'gravity' of the situation lol.

Thanks Ronstar and seraphim ... it's been good to get the camera out of hibernation this week.

Very nice Chuckanut. This may be the year I get to cross Zion off my "to do" list.

And yes, whatever software this forum is using to present the preview of shots uploaded directly to the forum is totally wacko. Much better to post from a hosting service ... and there's a bunch of free ones.
