Kewl (and others), do you mind including the camera + lens info in your posts? It really makes this thread much more useful as a resource/reference.

Anyone have 100% crops of landscape (images with in-focus subjects at infinity/distance) and their X-cams? This is one area that has me thinking that these cameras need more resolution to get past a certain threshold. Don't get me wrong, I love my system (X-E1, 18mm, 35mm, 60mm), and I think colors/rendering are wonderful. Detail up to about portrait range is off the charts. But the further we get towards infinity the less ideal I find the system for big printing/enlargement.

not really, the adapter was $125 and then you can mount almost any old lens, it comes in OM mount, M42, Leica R, Nikon F etc

they also have tilt AND shift adapters for mirrorless, those are more expensive

I really like that landscape Kewl. Simple, but I can imagine standing there.

XE1 with Nikon Series E 50mm f/1.8. Tools of the trade. In a deep hallway, the cleaning crew emptied the figure drawing class to seal the floors (I work in the art department at a community college).

Thanks ourabmen for your kind comments. That's the backyard of this house, in Tondano, Indonesia.

Last week there was a beautiful art installation at Northwestern University which was illuminating one side of Deering Library. It was designed by Italian artist Marco Rotelli. You can read more about it here: http://dailynorthwestern.com/2014/01/15/thecurrent/italian-artist-lights-up-deering-library-in-the-dead-of-winter/

It was extremely cold. So cold that I wasn't really thinking all that clearly. Still, I was fairly happy with the shots I managed to get. What I didn't do though was get a single shot of the entire side of the library (it's really wide) so I ended up going back the next day. While it was much warmer the next day, the conditions were very different as it was lightly snowing, there was a pretty good wind blowing and clearly, because of the the snow, there was no brilliant sky full of stars. I did get my single shot, and am fairly happy with it, I only wish I had taken it the night before when visually it was a better night for photographs.

All shots were taken with and X-E1 and 35 1.4 on a tripod.

Tim - your three shots above are quite easy to combine into a panorama. I've done so with the originals from your Flickr feed and even corrected for the distortion that results after the stitch. If you want, I can send it to you for posting....I won't post it here without your permission, of course.

Hey Jordan,

Feel free to post it, I'd love to see what you have come up with. I have zero experience shooting for panoramas, or using the software to do it. I looked that those three shots and just figured that the change in perspective is just too much to try and put them together. I just recently got in on the Adobe photographer's deal and really need to learn the in's and out's of Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC now. It's been a long time since I've used Photoshop seriously, and my prior experience with Lightroom was version 3.

What did you use to put them together?

Tim

I used Photoshop built in stitching. The distortion correction isn't perfect...you are right that these weren't shot for a panorama, and the resulting bulging is a little uneven. I corrected it as much as possible in a reasonable amount of time (some extra time with Liquefy or other transformations could likely make it perfect given enough time), but it's halfway decent here.

Here's a web size:
