It is possible to make threads that are "invitation only", so only those the thread creator wants to allow to post may do so, though I haven't seen the forum engine allow that option here.

It perhaps goes a bit against the concept of an open community forum as well, where everyone is free to participate.

yes, it's called "starting your own forum."

So by commenting about someone's image having over-baked colors that gives them the right to post a bunch of nasty personal comments and lots of sarcastic remarks about my photography and how my lack of posting has helped the thread? And other rude comments about my self esteem. Is that really nesessary? My 2 nd comments about over use of saturation in photography was more a general topic of discussion that I don't see as such a bad thing to discuss. When does processing a landscape type image so much that it becomes unnatural looking and not a photograph
...Show more

Wayne, you are such a character

Below is general topic of discussion: I bare no intention to offend any people but just generic discuss about photography.

I feel there is a trend in forum and internet that someone called 'experts' comment others photos like crunchy sharpness, over-saturated color, boring content, endless family pics, post too many variety pics without careful selection to flood the original simple, beautiful, high standard thread.....

Some people like them(experts), not me. As my coworker said to me: those experts make him feel sick.

I feel photographers can take good, interesting pics only he hold love of people and life to be able to get the shot, he/she has to be able to see the beauty of others work just like in life, he has to make choice to select beautiful moment, scene to represent his vision, his interpolation about life, love and world.

Photography is not only about images, is also about himself/herself. Photography as a art form is regardless of technical level or how long have been habitat in certain forum, or how many thread he started etc.....

Again I want reinstate this is just a generic discuss about photography. I bare no mind to offend any people. This general discussion has nothing to do with previous post and I feel it is a good discuss about photography and general trend in forum.

Just wanted to chime in that this is one of my favorite threads on FM. I don't have an RX1 anymore, but the work posted here is often inspiring.

Hi sebboh,
I think this is a great image, as yours usually are.
Just from me, no meaning, I usually don't like hard selective color images.
I think this one be really great if the saturation/vibrance was knocked down a bit.
Maybe even change the colors?

As for the RX1(R), I've always wanted one of these since seeing this thread.
I ALWAYS have to check this thread.
I was gonna "upgrade" my FujiFilm X-E1 to the X-T1, but am STILL having a hard time "justifying".
Kinda like why I never "upgraded" my Canon 5DMkII, I still have it.
Though, I would definitely like to get one of these RX1(R), STILL.

Derek, I am envy you that people can give you constructive suggestion about your image.
I am worried that my recent remark may scare people off to give me the same treatment
Please don't be, healthy discuss can help us all.


Here is mine: I feel the image is slightly tilt to right visually. could be just me!


I mentioned about beauty of leaf shutter and vertical EVF, here are few examples you can see how close I am for 35mm lens

I didn't have time to process and post RX1 images for months but I'm often here looking at all these great pictures.

One from today, "150'000" :

Scenery is great, comp too. Selective coloring looks cheap but this one almost passes. I dont know the original colors but I'd check paling them rather than putting a lighthouse on your (extremely photogenic) daughter. I think I'd pale through a tasteful strong structure BW layer and mask off with light airbrush if you dont employ some fancy Nik stuff. Vignetting is already there but perhaps induce some more and push offset vignetting to see if it could move more into a troll forest.

- as per requested cents :-)

thanks! i am not a fan of selective color in general either. at large sizes i think i actually prefer the straight b&w version, but at web size i felt like it was really easy not to notice the figure in image so it needed something to draw the eye.

thanks! i actually did pull down the vibrance on her to -46 and shifted local white balance to make her clothes less pastel. i'll play with bringing it down a bit more.

thanks! i agree it looks tilted to the right, but it's the trees that are tilted. the image is actually tilted to the left (judging by my daughter and the thin tree, which i know to be straight). maybe if i play with the tilt and vertical distortion settings i can make it look straighter...

thanks! will play with toning down the colors. no fancy b&w conversion, everything except downsizing was done in LR. not sure what you mean about structure? do you mean adding local contrast? vignetting could definitely stand for some local tweaking.

thanks to everyone for the suggestions/comments.

Taken on a recent trip to San Francisco.






This photo seems kind of futuristic to me... Can see the drought @ California.


Only snapped a few shot while it was snowing. Despite putting a plastic bag over it ... it was still getting wet. Pretty scary...

Great images guys.
Btw: my A7 files have brilliant DR, but when pushing shadows I have the feeling that the RX1 files are cleaner. The RX1 really is such a wonderful camera.

dtchan, Love the 3rd one, The 2nd location is very familiar:
This must happen at the same location within few block below image M9 35cron 8 elements, two month ago at SF






Jochenb, Fully agree, it is not the same sensor for sure even color, I am quite sensitive to these thing, though that is for myself and I don't want back it up in case anyone asked, I have not find time to test 55FE yet, but my lens has no sideway play with A7, I will try to recreate the unsymmetrical DOF behavior within this week. I feel it is the lens itself but not your copy issue.

All handhold
RX WO

The images went through quite push-pull in post process

yes, I was thinking structure as in "ACR clarity". That often adds a bit of vibrance too.

Seems a lot of ppl in this thread also have the Sony A7/7r. I am tempted as well but will probably wait for the next iteration. Anyone know if A7 + the zeiss 55mm f1.8 is of the same quality as the RX1 with 35mm?
