Some thunder clouds rolled into San Francisco this weekend, actually quite a rare event.  I'm curious about thoughts on treatment.  Also I'm not sure that cityscapes qualify as landscapes... so this might be misplaced?

At the WPPI tradeshow, Epson had a "new" printer shrouded under a black cloth.  The prints hanging above it were printed on it.  They wouldn't spill any details, so other than the fact the printers form factor under the cloth is too large to be another 13" printer and the prints printed were both larger than can be printed on the new p600, it's speculation (and I assume that's what they want, otherwise why set up the little mystery display).

It appears a new revised 3880 or a new 17" printer with similar form factor  using the new Ultrachrome HD inkset is coming sooner than later.  Side by side prints from the p600 vs the 7900 to me appeared to demonstrate the claims of better black dMax as well as subtle other improvements.  according to this article epson release information from Wilhelm to demonstrate the new yellow dye has substantially improved longevity, although I didn't see or here this at the booth myself.  I assume they wouldn't be bringing it up if they didn't feel it wasn't so.

Not big news although this is the first sign of inkset improvement from anyone in a few year. Everyone knew it was coming since all the stylus pros are scheduled to be replaced by 2016 with new printers using the new inks.

No clue when they will make it "official" but it seems after making a big deal out of it at WPPI it would be soon.   If the new printer has roll feed like the p600, but larger ink cartridges and clog performance like the 3880 then perhaps it is a bigger deal because it becomes a great choice instead of the 4900.  If it's just an upgraded 3880, then I still like the improvements in the inkset but I don't see people rushing to upgrade.

And then again, who knows it could be something totally different ...

Hi Antonio

Re The fence image - nice light!
These things are always subjective -
I might have created a one point perspective perhaps to avoid keystoning and allowed the rhs of the house to have some free space from the fence post also by just moving a bit left or closer. A revisit may not be possible.

With your existing image I would crop out foreground to a 2:1 horizontal (I hope you don't mind I indicated on your image my thoughts) and darken the edges a little especially foreground / possibly darken the driveway fence a little / photoshop the paving to match / remove the flare between the letterbox and the tree.
Loosing the foreground and making a little darker would draw the eye to the house fence more.

Sorry a little pressed for time at the moment, I had some comments on the others but thought I'd add my 2c on that image at least.

Thanks to all of you for your comments, I will take them into consideration. Jeremy, I added a slight cooling tint to the image, that seemed to me to better evoke the mood I was after. However, I wanted it to be very subtle, so if others feel the "blueness" is overly noticeable, that would be good to know.

"I am quickly learning that the only solution for the truly miserable menu design in the E-M5 Mark II is to procure a baseball bat and go in search of the committee which designed this execrable excrescence.

Dial up the Menu system by hitting the Menu button on the back panel and you get this the overlay pops up after a second instantly obscuring your menu choices."

It is true the overlay popping up is horrible. It is also true the overlay can be disabled sine die (at least in my E-P5).

Regarding whether UltraChrome D6 is the same as the Claria/Noritsu dyes, you might be interested in the Lab L, A and B comparisons I made, shown on the last page of .  Epson D6 MSDS had claimed the D6 K was carbon.  I challenged them on that.  They sent me a corrected MSDS.  (Whether they changed what they published to others is questionable.)  A carbon pigment K with the Claria/Noritsu dye characteristics would be quite remarkable (and probably impossible).

Mark, it's great to hear a new K and LK are in the works.  That has been a weak point.  I will eagerly await its being made available in a large cart.   Do you think there is currently a Canon version that is available and compatible?  If it's in large carts, moving in that direction might be of interest.

It's a quite pleasing image, as is. But I tend to agree with Bob that the darker tree tends to pull the eye away from the main subject. I would try lightening it and see it how you think it looks - unless you've already done that, and decided otherwise.

An example of menu hell with a dash of buttons if you read the blog. As an
EM5 user, i can understand the frustration.

I'm intrigued by how the tree looks back lit by a white mist ?  This pulls me in for a moment.
