    Reviewing some pics I took some years ago. Nikon D4s & Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 and 15mm f/2.8 Distagons and fisheye AF Nikkor 16mm f/2.8. Thank you for looking. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

    Even in the depths of winter my Rhubarb is already pushing up despite the snow augering lots of Rhubarb Crumbles, yummy. Lumix G9 + Summilux 12mm 1.4. @ 1/60 f5.6 ISO800 I’m beginning to fall in love with this Summilux lens, bloody expensive but so good.

    The Australia Day public holiday marks the end of the summer holiday period here in Australia, with people heading back to work and kids back to school. We took advantage of the long weekend to have few days out - one to the hills and the other to the coast. The trip to the hills involved some cycling along the Warburton Rail Trail - around 40km of disused railway line no used for cycling, walking and horse riding (We didn't do it all). Cycling We also took a drive up to the summit of Mount Donna Buang and a brief walk around the rain forest tree top trail. Rain Forest The coast trip involved a bit of time on the beach at Flinders and some stops along towards Cape Schank. Cape Schank Cape Schank Lighthouse Waves Lone Tree - Whilst sitting on the beach, this lone tree on a distant headland attracted my attention. Unfortunately by the time I realised the shot I wanted, the tide was coming in and I couldn't get close enough, even at 200mm, so I've had to crop. Lone Tree B&W A B&W version also appealed to me, although it is a bit hazy. Perhaps an excuse for a return visit. Camera: Fuji X-E3, Lenses: 27 f/2.8, 18-55 and 55-200.

    Yup, not cheap indeed. The sales person in the iStore I was in yesterday told me that it would be better to buy it myself than to order a new iMac with the additional RAM in it. I'm not that interested in the retina screens because they do funky things to websites, either enlarging images and making them less than sharp, or making them appear too small on the page. I am currently running 3 x 27" Apple screens (I have 2 x 27" Thunderbolt Displays daisy chained to the iMac, which is glorious!).

    Mike, do not despair. You are a good photographer.

    On a recent Australia Day outing, I had a chance to give the Fuji 55-200 a bit of a workout with the various sea birds along the beach. Hooded Plovers which often result in sand dunes along our coast being off limits due to their ground level nesting. Pacific Gull - these are big, and whilst I have cropped this a bit, the wingtips just dip out of the frame - the following frame with the wings in the upper position had the tips just out of the top too! Silver Gulls these are the most common along our coast and seemed to have found something interesting in the top of the bush as they were frequently gliding in, landing and then taking off again.

    Gulls are relatively easy birds to shoot - they are fairly big and generally quite habituated to human.

    Rhubarb crumble? Yes please, and don't forget the custard.

    I love rhubarb crumble but ours is under two feet of snow and it has just 'warmed up' to -7C so not for awhile yet. Peter

    I want a place where I can post my pics and see good pics from the community and read reviews of the latest equipment. I understand that many people prefer photographic equipment over the pics. I witnessed it at last year's Photokina. Few people looking at wonderful pics at the the various galleries and the cameras makers stands crowded. I love equipment too, but they don't mean anything if I can not make good images with it. You can picture in your mind the several 85 yo rich men that are proud of their Ferraris parked in their garage but don't know the pleasure to drive it at 200km/h in a curve. (I don't know that either, but I'm not 85 not rich nor have a Ferrari. lol). Similar to many photographic equipment owners.

    It’s called discussion Mike, I see nothing wrong with examining the details of a new release, it’s where I got info for my choice of the G9. Maybe it’s disappointment regarding the spec of the EM1X that is exercising the critics? Luckily I don’t have to agonise wether to splash the cash on this one. 😀

    Yes - many tads actually. Now in February and it was 41 Deg C today. Only 26 Deg C predicted for tomorrow - thank goodness!
