with the new to me 27mm lens. At f8 one of the sharpest lenses I have come across.
I'm beginning to like these Fuji colours.
Or am I?
Long distance phone call.
You definitely should like the colour version rather than the B/W!
Got to be colour for my home town, their brews are`t to bad either.
Looking good! Colour is always my preference
See I told ya Brian.
I really do like the Fuji colours but..............it's a funny thing, perhaps it's me, but I feel b/ w has more " authority" then colour.
But whatever, I am finding the ability to switch around very novel.
Black and White is addictive.
mostly prefer b&w..
as to the 27...a great lens in a tiny package...practically disappears on my xe3.
Brian, well composed pictures. I like them very much! The 27mm pancake seems to be a very good lens !
Colour or B&W, my suggestion is to crop in much tighter.
Prefer the colour version but the b&w has real snap and bite.
Here are another couple from the 27mm
Last week I spent a few days down in Brighton. I decided to take the XT20 with 27mm plus the 18-55mm zoom.mm lens. Never used the latter. Really impressed the way the 27mm renders, it seems to have a sparkle.
I really do like the colour. These are all taken using raw, LR auto process Provia preset and nothing else apart from resizing
Normally I hate bright light and sunshine, dull skies and rain are my idea of photographic bliss. However these pictures of Worthing seem to capture a sparkle and a sense of space. Somehow being back in Leeds seems a let down.
Of the two I much prefer the B&W. In this case I feel like the colour distracts from the story you're trying to tell.
Not in this case, I'm afraid. Just try it for yourself.
BTW, I prefer the B&W version.
Never crop. But here is a tighter version .
It's one of my self imposed disciplines, The only exception to this rule is maybe if I have stitched the odd picture, for web publication. OK I might have to "trim" a bit if I have used any correction to verticals etc.
I also only ever print 3:2 in landscape format, again sometimes but rarely will I break this rule for web stuff. Actually there is also a practical reason. Most pre cut mats and frames are sized in
Metric ( or whatever it comes from) A sizes. At least this is true of the affordable IKEA products.
Of course there are serious practical reason for not cropping but that's another story......
I can understand many will disagree , but I find the above controls a benefit, others may disagree, perhaps it does nothing to improve my pictures , but there it is.
