Thanks! Roni.

Color are most from WB tweak, maybe I played a little bit of hue and luminous in blue channel. Since it is under strong back lighting condition, there is not much color information there so that I can do whatever I want for them without worry funky color.

As for DR, I just let the highlight blow up . Push shadow with Canon file can be dangerous, chrome noise is all over the place I still did some if I remember correctly in this case. IQ is 2nd than get the shot. I found this interesting scene,

Thanks! I'm learning a lot of valuable stuff in this forum.
You're a real risk-taker, wading into the water with $1000s of equipment

I am investigating it now! sounds late, huh? any recommendation? I agree with 'no fun' part, but I guess I went too deep without back up plan. I dropped my 50lux on rock once and didn't get the lessen

Manu, thanks for comments.

i just have them added to renter's/homeowner's insurance. they need an itemized list with values of the item and what you want them covered for. definitely nice to have when you have a toddler around too.

Nice images from the island, Michael. It looks like you escaped SF's summer to warm up a bit (thanks for the meteorological info, sebboh!)

In the past few weeks I hardly took any pictures as the hot weather keeps me out mostly by the water, but here is one from tonight's walk.

These and the other two pictures above have beautiful colors. I have this lens on NEX6 and not getting as nice images. I am almost tempted to get the 6D.

This is the first in a series of sunset photos that I took early evening on July 21 from the roof of the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, PA. Image taken with tripod mounted Leica 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens (equivalent to 420mm on full frame 35mm camera) and Fujifilm X-E1 camera, ISO 200 at 1/60 second. Other images to be posted later as I complete processing the images. Image processed in LR5.

This image was taken the first time that I have been out to take photos since May 10 which predated my Quadruple Bypass Heart Surgery on May 22. So, please give me a little time to process the other images (especially as I am trying to get out to take more images).

Beautiful school bus shots Michael. Love the vivid colors.

What was the processing on these ?

How are you liking the 6D given that you've had it for a few weeks now.

I will answer together kkibrisli, don’t just get the 6D, like the mistake I made, try it out before to decide if the body suit your need. The color looks nice because of the particular scene, which is not sensitive to color separation and under some post process. It fulfill my need for small FF body with capability of adapt lens. And almost perfect handling. I love one hand operation, love the live view implementation, love the Wifi (I use it as wireless release for landscape and whole family portrait.), I love GPS so all my Hawaii photo get GPSed.

But I personally struggle with 6D color; I am not used to ‘milky’ color. and I believe the issue I am facing is real that require fairly heavy tweak in raw engine/profile to get color match human vision. At least it requires a lot more time for me to get the adequate results I like. Simple WB adjust never make it for me. Keep in mind, the color or overall look of the file is very personal, and people have different sensitivity on this, so take whatever I say with grain of salt.

For the bus shot, this couldn’t be easier to PP as the color spectrum is very simple: Yellow, blue, green, and white. Other than tweak WB to a good starting point, I boosted vibrancy to about +30, saturation +10 and turning down blue luminous slide to keep vivid sky; tweak yellow hue to orange side to reduce the green cast I don’t like; boost white slider and reduce highlight slider to keep tonality of white cloud; tweak green hue to blue side to reduce yellow cast.

The good thing about this particular picture is I don’t need worry color separation, color accuracy etc… as what I really want is giving a visual impact on color and perspective. Scene like this won’t tell you about color or tonality performance of camera. A simple by window portrait will tell you a lot more than this

Hope this helpful and I answered the question.
