  1. Nr. 2 for me as well, intriguing scene! Is this the 14-30 lens? It is quite incredible... I have an X-T1 plus 16, 23 and 56 (1.4/1.2), coming from Nikon APS-C. The Z glass is extraordinary. Should I ever get a Z camera, I don't think I will be using the 8 or 9 F mount glass I kept 'for future use'. I love the black and whites you do. Thank you for posting.
  2. Love the prop blur in the first photo.
  3. Fantastic images. And what a cool build, that Yak 110. Thanks for posting. Would love to see more.
  4. Wonderful, number 1 stands out for me 👍

    Air Show

    I like them all very much, but the B-17 stands out for me. Love the view point and how it appears from the letterbox in the clouds. I wonder what it would do for the prop blur if you halved the shutter speed, that's always tough. If you have more, please bring it on!

    On the Stairs

    Intriguing! What, or where, is this? I like it.
  8. Hi Vivion, Is this the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart? I find myself searching for more details in the wall! I like the man walking down while watching the wall. That's how I remember myself walking down there. Fantastic museum it is, well worth the visit from The Netherlands. My brother and I combined the Mercedes-Benz museum with Porsche's, in the same city (still presuming of course you were in the Mercedes-Benz museum...).
  9. Good point Mike, I would rather own an X-Pro type of Fuji than my current X-T1, if only I could see the entire viewfinder using glasses! The X-T1 eye relief is perfect for this so I'll be keeping it. I may eventually replace it with an X-T3 during some Fuji sales promotion.

    I am with Anthony on this one. With the tree some of the depth of the image was removed as well.
  11. Having been to the former Soviet Union as a 14 year old while in secondary school in 1982, and having shot some 8 rolls of 36 Fujifilm ASA100 when I was there, I really enjoy watching these photos. They bring back impressions and memories that I do not have from other travels in that era. Thank you.
  12. I watched the video and you're absolutely right: I found my self smiling at the ingenuity of the inventor, and also at his perseverance to turn it into a working product! Thanks for sharing.

    Retired golfers

    A circus owner runs an ad for a 'lion tamer wanted' and two people showed up...... One is a retired golfer in his late-sixties and the other is a drop-dead, gorgeous brunette with a killer body in her mid-twenties. The circus owner tells them, "I'm not going to sugar coat it. This is one ferocious lion. He ate my last tamer so you two had better be good or you're history." "Here's your equipment -- a chair, a whip and a gun ...... Who wants to try out first?" The gorgeous brunette says, "I'll go first." She walks past the chair, the whip and the gun and steps right into the cage. The lion starts to snarl and pant and begins to charge her. As he gets close, the gorgeous brunette throws open her coat revealing her beautiful, perfect naked body. The lion stops dead in his tracks, sheepishly crawls up to her and starts licking her feet and ankles. He continues to lick and kiss every inch of her body for several minutes, then lays down and rests his head at her feet. The circus owner's jaw is on the floor! He says "That's amazing! I've never seen anything like that in my life!" He then turns to the retired golfer and asks, "Can you top that?" The old golfer replies, "Possibly... but you've got to get that lion out of there first."
