Luc, I enjoy your artistic representation of this attractive place.  Fuji ASTIA used to be my favorite film after Kodachrome 25, my all-time favorite, had been discontinued.

Lovely series.

 

Yes Astia had a good look to it - its colours were a welcome change to Kodachrome.

Thanks a lot Akira, Dallas, Hugh and Chris.  

 

The very good (Astia) Jpegs of the X100 are a great basis for post processing. I can edit such a Jpeg in less than a minute, processing the RAW would take more time to approach the end result shown here.

I'm feeling more and more reluctant spending long time post processing RAW images. Besides, my body is also protesting against it after 40 years of professional work in front of a computer screen.

Thanks Luc! I will be on a business trip and I still have no idea where I am going to stay and how much spare time I will have. Once I have some more details and if it turns out that I will have some time on my hands I will get in touch with you.

 

again thanks for the offer!

Thank you Luc for your beautiful illustrated tour of this part of Amsterdam. All your pictures are very interesting (you even seems to immortalize Miss Fashion Camera Liselotte Fleur on duty?!).

All my regards, Daniel M

Thanks a lot Daniel! Not sure though if she's Liselotte Fleur ;) I had to look her up on the web, do you know her (work) from a Fuji forum or elsewhere?

I have to say I'm pleased with the way the images turned out. It was my first photo outing this year and the sunny weather and great photo opportunities inspired me a lot. Also the limitations of the X100 (fixed focal length , slow handling/focus) forced me to carefully consider each shot. I also used the OVF exclusively because with my worsening eyesight even with glasses an older type EVF like on the X100 is difficult to cope with for me. 

 

Last week I bought a second-hand WCL-X100 28mm lens for the X100, looking forward to testing that one. In May my wife and I go on a cruise to the Baltics and St Petersburg, I'm considering taking just the X100 and the WCL and shoot in Jpeg.

Hi Luc, I am not sure also (It was just a guess) but you can look at her website. She recently invest into a new Fujifilm X-T3 and few Fujinon lenses. She also had done some work with the Fujifilm GFX system.

 

Have a good day!

Since I am so late to the party, I think I will plagiarize 🤩:  Definitely bright and colorful, and makes me want to visit......but all on my own, (not plagiarizing others) they lead me to wonder what is around the corner, or inside some of the doorways, or peepholes..... Lots of questions. And surely something interesting around the corner.

 

Thanks,

Walton

      Last week I was on holiday in Ohrid, North-Macedonia. A beautiful country with great photo opportunities.
      I took my X100 (first version), WCL 28mm converter and five batteries (no charger).
      All images shot in Astia Jpeg / DR200 and post processed in Lightroom.

      Ohrid is a very nice town with a historic city centre which is Unesco world heritage.
      Lake Ohrid is fed from lake Prespa on a 200m higher level. The water is filtered by the rocky mountains and as a result the water in Lake Ohrid is very clear and cold.

      The boulevard along the lake is the place to have a drink at a bar, play cards with friends after a swim in the lake, train a traditional dance etc.
       
      2.

       
      3.

       
      4.

       
      At the other side of town there's a lounge bar (Cuba Libre) which is the perfect place to watch the sunset.
       
      5. My wife enjoying the warm sun

       
      6. The old town of Ohrid in the background

       
      7.  I was so happy to see that boat come into view and make the picture complete (all this while drinking a delicious Mojito)
