Busy Day!

By paulbroad  
Thought this was amusing. was going to crop quite a bit from the right, but decided the salt and vinegar bottles were part of the story? You will tell me.

Bridlington front. Busy afternoon. Will not be getting chips from there.

Fujifilm XE-1 with 50/230 at about 180mm. Aperture priority f8, ISO400, 1/600 approx. Hand held.

Break the rules and crop from the left. It works I think see mod.

You can have your cake and vinegar too.

Playing with the fridge and bottles theme, as an alternative. No vinegar, no fish thanks. No green beans at the side either. Thanks

P.S. Yes you can have fish with freshly squeezed lemon instead, much tastier alternative.

I do think the left crop works. The exception that proves the rule. Just shows!

I, personnally, would not go mono here. Would loose so much of the colour values of the background then. However, that would be a bit different.

As an addition, the quality available from theXE1 astounds me. I actually think it is bettef than my 7D in many respects. The libraries appear very happy with the quality. I am finding myself automatically using it for all general photography.

No good for macro with present lenses and too slow in operation for motor racing, but a superb general purpose instruement and so small and portabke.

What I wanted to do, immediately, was to correct the verticals. A side-effect is that the lady is even more laid back...

Wryly and wittily observant, Paul!

I agree with you with these points... the system camera works well generally, Canon M's AF was very slow at low light macro, or even couldn't focus..the lens is a bit rubbish with landscape..but I can't see how it can be better than 7D, do you want to swap ?GrinWink The 7D's lens could be more expensive than the XE1...

Seems to be the basic image quality, Jas. The results, at 100% are much smoother than the 7D and are going to the libraries without rejection so far. May be the lack of a low pass filter, but also easier to carry and lihtweight. I am extremely pleased with it and use it now as my main day to day camera.
