I'm torn. I think I would like the B&W better if it were darker or with more contrast maybe? I agree with Michelle regarding the color version and the sand.
Here's an 'almost'. I thought I set the camera to shoot full speed multiple frames but this is the only frame captured. Unfortunately the woman's eyes are closed (no, not Cameron's). I like the conversion nonetheless.
yeah, i couldn't find a way to boost the contrast/blacks in b&w without destroying the mist effect. the best way i found was to deepen colors, but i wasn't really happy with how that looked.
i really like your last shot. i think the eyes closed look is beneficial, gives her a more meditative look.
These two adjacent mountain peaks are often in the clouds. Today the sky was clear so my wife and I took off with our cameras.
my parents were in the area today, and called to tell me how beautiful it was.
- Huge dynamic range.
- A very discrete package because of it's appearance and silent leaf shutter.
also, when you do want shallow dof at f/2 you can put the subject absolutely anywhere in the frame and expect it to be crisp and contrasty, which isn't really the case with the x100s. in low light you can totally take landscape shots at f/2 with the rx1 as well.
more than anything though, the look at f/2 is very different from the x100 lens. the x100 has more of a classic lower contrast with slightly funky bokeh look while the rx1 crisp and contrasty with a shockingly smooth bokeh.
a few wide open portraits that i think would look very different on the x100(s):
