meh, it has this street photography look. As far as those and documentation, photojournalism, etc... I think it doesn't have to be tack sharp. It adds to the whimsy of it all. They're moving it shows directions etc.

Here's a quick pic of some of my film cameras. All of them work and date from 1958 to around 1979 or so. Back row left to right, Minolta SRT MCII, my venerable SRT 102, an XK and an XG7. In front is an old Zeiss Contina from 1958. It brings a whole new meaning to manual mode photography LOL!

Thanks. It was raped in Lightroom, looks nothing like the original.
Nope, sold my 1Ds III to go for a 5D III. Only had to add 100 €, was a good deal. The 1series is just too big and heavy for taking it along on every journey I go on, especially the business trips.

Cranes, do you do the developing yourself or get it done in a lab? I enjoy shooting film but I don't want to develop. That only leaves the C41 b/w films like Ilford XP2 if I don't want to give an arm and a leg.

No I don't do my own developing but I'm seriously considering it. If I do I'll start with the prints first and then get the things needed for the negatives down the road. If you think good glass is expensive you ought to see the price tag on good enlargers.

I understand the cost of developing anything other than C41 film all to well. Same goes with a large optically produced print by someone who knows how to dodge and burn, tweak colors and expose it correctly.

LOL! I'm pretty sure I could cover the entire kitchen table with lenses, cameras, flashes and other film related do dads. It's really amazing going through this stuff and packing it away for my upcoming move.

IC, I'm looking for the AE-S finder for the XK. Keep an eye out for one.

Browsing DPreview's forum, I stumbled across a link to some particularly nice street photograpy, from a guy with a great eye for the “The Decisive Moment” (IMO, anyway) - just thought I'd share:

Most taken with Fuji X100 and X10.

Thanks Crane's. Here's another, although I am not usually happy with my own pictures.

Another film buff here btw, a table shot will probably follow soon.

Nikos, I like it. I keep an eye out for shots similar to this. I would like to get a road tree canopy shot of freshly fallen snow and when the trees are colored up in the Fall. It's kind of funny, you would think this would be fairly easy to find but it really isn't.

Centrix, about all I can say is watch your horizon. Keep it straight. It's an easy fix in PS just so you know. One of your shots looks like you got some barrel distortion but that's just the way it is. you could fix that in PS too but a different lens is a lot easier to deal with. On your bird shot. Is that real lens flare or something you did in post? Some people hate it. I tend to like it as long as it's something that happens naturally.

That's actually a good mindset. It forces you to be a photographer instead of being a post processor. Unless I'm doing something like a fashion shoot I do very little post work. I'll tighten up the histogram to get rid of the mud and if I forget to set the white balance I'll fix that. Otherwise it is what it is. My philosophy is pretty simple. If I have to spend more than a few minutes on a pic in post I delete it.
