Some iPhone shots from the weekend in south west Florida
Last week in Japan:
A few months old but still my favourite shot of the past few years.
Some recent stuff...
Do many of you dick around with creating HDR photos? Also, any recommendations on a photo processing class that is in the Bay Area? I take a ton of meat photos on my travels and have been bracketing for years and they are wasted potential.
Pretty decent for an iPhone (5s) pic, I think; as long as it gets enough light... Just cropped, no other edits.
Trying to keep this thread alive...

I took some shots of old farm equipment while walking the dogs this morning. The only corrections are cropping and levels/color balance (in Photoshop).
A few random shots from Mud Lake Open Space (near Nederland, CO at 8400-8500' elevation).
So my camera got stolen--a Fuji X100s I've had about since they came out. I'd come to rely on it almost exclusively for travel and family photos and its really hard to go back to my DSLR, although I'm going to suffer through it for awhile
Good news is, I get to shop for a new camera, and I figured I'd ask if anyone has recent experience/advice. Strongly considering getting the newer version of the x100s (either the f or t) or just picking up a used x100s.
The things I liked about the x100s: perfect size, very quiet (for street photography, mostly), sync speed for low aperture flash in sunlight (it was great for beach photos w flash in bright sun), overall image quality, easy-to-access manual controls.
Things I didn't like so much: slow AF (a problem for photos of the kids), I never really got the hang of manual focus on it (vs old SLRs or DSLRs, where I never had a problem), and fixed lens although that was also sort of a positive in that I never had to think about/really pack a bag.
Fuji X100T (or f or s)
Fuji xt10 or another fuji x with lenses (I think these lose the leaf shutter of the x100 series)
Save money for a full frame DSLR
I'm a Fuji shooter. The X100 series are a niche product, but perhaps the best camera in the semi-compact APS-C format. If I was in your situation, I would either buy the newest iteration of the X100 or consider investing in a m4/3 system. The latter boasts a smaller sensor, but also requires smaller optics which have their own advantages with regards to portability.
Oh, and some photos...
A sunrise and a sunset.
