    Thanks. They're jpegs with some light post-processing.

    As for the X100, I love it. If you read the reviews, there are some idiosyncrasies you need to get used to but other than those, it's awesome. I love composing through a viewfinder. That was always the hardest thing for me when using my S90 - especially in bright sunlight.





    I don't have much insight other than I like them, especially the tones. I lean towards a less saturated look now and yours look great.

    Thanks Lax, and Trini for the kind words. Hopefully they people I'm photographing for like them too ;)

    I am digging the less sat. look too..everyone does photos that are really contrasty and saturated. I just want something that'll make me stand out.

    Pretty nice il ciclista, +1 on the tones.
    What lens did you use? Looks like the 50/1,8, but I can't view the exif.

    il ciclista - I agree with the others... nice shots. I've played with the desaturated look a few times myself.

    I would clone out that little bit of flare at the bottom of the last one. My eye is drawn right to it.

    Thanks for the input Brian, you're right it does stick out with all the negative space.

    I feel better about presenting my photos now that I've had some outside opinions. Thanks alot guys!:)

    I don't think you have to worry about your skills, IC. Desaturated or heavily saturated, which I've also seen from you—you seem to have your own style anyway.

    Taken with my 24-70 2.8L, the lens is so freaking sharp. The only thing I can think of that is annoying is that there is no IS, but I can live without it the lens is also a brick it is so heavy, but I find that I would rather have a heavy lens as it feels like it is better quality.

    ^You are right! It is the birdbath in my backyard that could really use a cleaning though.

    Go get 'em IC. You'll do just fine. At the Gap shoot was a photographer who I'm mentoring. He was a nervous wreck and a bit overwhelmed but did just fine. I kept telling him he takes great pics and to just have fun with it. Once he calmed down he did just fine with single and group shots of the models. You know what you're doing IC so go have some fun.

    Thanks for the advice Crane, I always get nervous before I shoot someone I don't know (lol that sounds sinister) I have one shoot this lady has a dedicated photog to her beckon call, but my uncle was friends with her and she saw my work. So that ups the stress level a bit because if I do well it'll be a lot of business and money, but if she doesn't like them then it stops there! Either way i'll do them and once I get a few shots done i'll be fine I'm sure.
