  2. Thanks Larry. The postprocessing is a bit quirky so I expect it to be not to everyone's taste. Glad you like these. Btw; apart from the tiny viewfinder the D5500 is a nice camera. Excellent sensor!
  3. Hi Larry, thanks a lot much appreciated. And so nice to hear from you, I hope you're ok. All the best!
  4. To me the reflection looks best on #1 so that's my favourite too.
  5. At the local Zoo (Amersfoort/Holland) Nikon D5500 + Nikon 70-200mm f4 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
  6. As brown as a good café ought to be Olympus E-M10II + Olympus 25mm f1.8 @ f3.5
  7. You've gotta give Panasonic credit for developing a camera like this (and even more for the simultaneously introduced 200mm f2.8 lens) in an increasingly competitive camera market. I like the proven slr-style body and the very large and high quality viewfinder. As I grow older I really value a high-quality centrally placed viewfinder and as a left-eyed shooter a viewfinder on the left on the rangefinder style cameras has no benefit at all for me. Having handled the GH4 and G80 I think the ergonomics of these G-models is great. I also like it's freeze proof, next February my wife and I will be going to Lapland so I might want a camera which can cope with the conditions over there. I would have no use for all the high-tech features like high-speed 6k etc. I guess an Olympus E-M5II (which can be bought new for almost 1/3 of the price of this G9) could suffice for me. The G9 is rather large and expensive, a Nikon D500 is about the same size. But on paper it's a great camera and I might be tempted to buy it.
  8. I like the lighting on the top of the lighthouse in #1. Both good images Dallas.
  9. I think Nikon will survive as a camera company but on a smaller scale. Nothing wrong with that imo. We are so used to structural and so called necessary growth we are unable to cope with the opposite. But the changes in the camera industry are peanuts compared with the changes the automotive industry will undergo in the coming 10-30 years.
  10. Stabilisation on lenses (VR) and in cameras (IBIS) are imo the most useful recent innovation in photographic equipment.
  11. Thanks Rags, Akira. I like it too, pristine indeed and I guess these have "monument" status so no big changes allowed to the exterior. In my neighbourhood the exterior of most of the houses is - on a voluntary basis - done in era-specific shades of green and white which results in some uniformity to otherwise different style of houses.
  12. Thanks all. A different kind of blue it is Delft is among the smaller, historical cities in Holland which are definitily worth a visit. Others are Utrecht, Leiden and Haarlem. Amsterdam is of course very nice but very crowded, expensive and the service level and friendliness of the people is not up to the level of the smaller cities.
  13. Thanks Armando. A fisheye can really stimulate the creativity of a photographer!
  14. Two images shot (handheld, shutter speed 1/8sec) with a Samyang fisheye lens of the new Delft railway station. The ceiling is a reference to the world-famous Delfts Blauw pottery. With some imagination it's visible in these images. 1. 2.
  15. A series of images shot in Delft during the blue hour. Shutter speeds as low as 1/8, thanks to Olympus IBIS (in-body stabilisation) no tripod needed. Olympus E-M10II + Olympus 25mm f1.8 1. 2. 3.
