Just playing around. I know this will make some a little nuts, but reading Alain's essay, I wanted to try and express visually what I experienced when I was engaged by this view from the top of Mingus Mountain in the Verde Valley of Arizona. I have been thinking along these lines for several months: Silly thought for a former research scientist, but Rob C's brief essay in another thread also got me thinking and the take home message for me was that this sort of stuff is fun! And, most importantly, it is for me; so I tried to go outside the lines. It is not intended to fool anybody, but simply to evoke a feeling, a sense of WOW at standing by the overlook and... words fail, which actually means blah, blah, blah ;)

I posted this here really to inform my curiosity (about potential viewpoints and criticisms) as well as to reject my own shyness. Hopefully, it's not perceived as a cheap trick.

Also, Andrew Molitor's essay on creativity factored into my experiment and for which, I thank him, too.

As Andrew wrote:
Is this a success? Yes. I have accomplished what I set out to do, which was make some sort of creative thing out of a mundane thing, a little cup. I like the sequence. Its pretty, it looks the way I wanted it to look.
Only my little cup happened to be a mundane landscape in the middle of the day with lousy light ;)

I do wish Fuji would do a redesign of the 18mm f2, the corners are definitely weak, to the point where my 18-55 outperforms it at all apertures.  Maybe I have a bum copy, I've not tried another sample.

I'd still try to import straight off the card and see if you have the same issue.  Just to rule that out

I use Canson Rag Photographique, it is slightly warmer than the Hot Press Bright because of lower/no OBAS, but nowhere near as warm as Hot Press Natural.  But I use cut sheets.

Hello everyone,

I would like to share with you a strange behavior of my Epson P800 regarding the download and installation of a alleged "new firmware". The 19 October EPSON Software Updater informed me that a new software was available to install.
I installed the new firmware and when I printed the Configuration Status the Main Firmware entry was OR12G4, different (as it would be) from the old one. After a couple of days I came back to print and I noticed that the firmware went back to the old one, the OR30G6.

Now, from the numbers it seems that OR30G6 is the newest one ! Do you have any idea what happens ?
Can you confirm that the firmware above is the correct one ?

Thanks and bests.

Many years ago I took a photo lesson from a community college, in the class the instructor told us to warm it up in color printing for more pleasing color. It did seem work at that time. However I also felt something wrong but didnot know why.  I have less of that problem now by using grey card and digital white balance.

I wonder if there is an equivalent method on the sharpening and saturation.

It is not a problem with Downloader Pro, it works just fine with the files. I can view the files with FastRawViewer, Fastone Viewer, and other thumbnail viewing programs just fine, the images load completely. I can extract the embedded jpg no problem and it is viewable as well as looking at the raw data. I can import the files into Capture One no problem. I can view the thumbnails in other programs just fine so it is something that is an issue just with LR 6.7. I will try some other files today and see how it goes. It is not a critical issue at this point as I in general prefer Capture One but I do use LR for some things and it is nice to have options.

Thanks for the reply.

Hi Rob,

You have all my sympathy.

The whole "brexit" thing is a deeply unresponsibele  act, resulting in Britain's and breton's future hanging on negotiations with EU at conditions which are in no way defined and on which Great Britain has zero influence and with an uncertain outcome. Also, let's not forget that it started with unsuccessful negotiations to begin with.

My friends at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg say that many of their British colleagues apply for citizenship in Luxembourg to stay within the EU. But, ordinary Britishers don't have that option.

It may be a relevant question to ask which mandate the government was given by the referendum? Is it a mandate to negotiate conditions for leaving the EU or a mandate to the leave the European Economic Area?

Best regards

Erik, they'll lie about that too, muddy the arguments and generally make everything even worse. The irony is that May put herself forward as a 'Remain' person, but is now doing her best to annoy the other side and make it all far more difficult than it was going to be anyway.

I still cling to the straw of a Parliamentary vote that will throw the entire bill of goods out into the Thames, and drown it for good.

With exposure preview turned off, the lcd will show you properly exposed screen based on the existing ambient light.
Which turned out to be an advantage for low light photography, since it serves like some kind of night vision, because it shows brighter picture than you could see through a regular OVF in a very low light.
If you've never used a camera with EVF before, and you are thinking about purchasing an expensive mirrorless MF, I suggest you try some cheap micro43 or something first, to get used to a EVF. Some people like it, some don't.

One thing the Fuji won't get you is the huge OVF image of the medium format SLRS.
