    SIJ21 Imogen's new dress.

    Another grandchild, Imogen has just turned 5 and is off to the movies with Nanna - a first for Imogen. Played around in Topaz Adjust which was too strong so blended at 50% Opacity with original.

    Some more powder arrived overnight.

    SIJ20 Deacon

    Our grandchildren visited today. Deacon is 5 months old and Nanna knows his 'tickle spot'. Taken with flash and high ISO so a bit noisy.

    SIJ Day 19 - Hot Chocolate, Lexington, MA

    Back to the coffee shop to warm up with some hot chocolate - it's another freezing cold night.
  5. SIJ19 Kit

    SIJ19 Kit

    Taken a cue from other posts and shot my current kit - minus the X100 of course. Just added a used GRD III today and it is small, powerful and cute all at the same time. I have two older digicams (still working) but never shoot with them so left them out. Also missing from the shot are my...

    SIJ Day 18 - Internet Protest, United States of America

    With the SOPA/PIPA protests drawing to a close and Amin turning this site back on, I can finally post my documentation of this event. Didn't have to leave my chair today...
  7. SIJ18 Split

    SIJ18 Split

    A bit short on ideas - this is a macro of part of the power pole on our verge and it's not B&W.
  8. SIJ Day 16 - Icy River Dam, Exeter, NH

    SIJ Day 16 - Icy River Dam, Exeter, NH

    Went back to the bridge over the river dam in Exeter that I had as the picture for day 1. A little colder now and less blue sky so a B&W version seemed appropriate to kick of the second half of this month long journey.
  9. SIJ Day 15 - Congress Street, Portsmouth, NH

    SIJ Day 15 - Congress Street, Portsmouth, NH

    Another walk around Portsmouth NH in bitter cold weather. Few people out and the few out there all seemed to be heading for the coffee shops.
  10. SIJ15 The dead tree.

    SIJ15 The dead tree.

    This tree died last summer and despite good winter rains has not recovered. This is a +1/0/-1 HDR.
  11. SIJ Day 14 - Coffee Shop, Lexington, MA

    SIJ Day 14 - Coffee Shop, Lexington, MA

    Spent some time in Lexington today and snapped this picture of some fellow coffee drinkers getting some work done.
  12. SIJ14 Old and not so old.

    SIJ14 Old and not so old.

    The old singer sewing machine dates from about the 1930s. The other objects are fakes trying to look old. Processed in LR3 and SEP2.
  13. John Hancock Tower, Boston, MA

    John Hancock Tower, Boston, MA

    Another day with some time to wander around in Boston. Always found the John Hancock Tower fascinating with the all glass surfaces. Great for catching reflections.

    SIJ13 The artist at work

    Babysitting today so took the camera naturally.
  15. SIJ Day 12 - Wet Snow, New Hampshire

    SIJ Day 12 - Wet Snow, New Hampshire

    Wet, snowy and icy today. Took some shots in the back yard.
  16. SIJ12 The park.

    SIJ12 The park.

    This is a 3 shot HDR converted in SEP2 (High structure) and cropped and sharpened in LR3 with a touch of vignette. Reminds me of moonlight although it's a bright 38C day here. Finally got past my driveway today.
  17. SIJ Day 11 - Ice Rink, Boston Commons

    SIJ Day 11 - Ice Rink, Boston Commons

    Spent some time in Boston today and shot 50+ exposures. This is the one that I liked the best of them all.
  18. SIJ11 Daddy long legs.

    SIJ11 Daddy long legs.

    Using MF and AFL button method which I find better than the limited macro setting of the X100. These spiders are harmless and do catch insects at the front door.
  19. SIJ Day 10 - Night Sky, New Hampshire

    SIJ Day 10 - Night Sky, New Hampshire

    Not much action on my outing tonight. Had to settle for a shot of the night sky.
  20. SIJ10 - Sweep pano revisited

    SIJ10 - Sweep pano revisited

    Tried the motion pano (as Fuji calls it) on landscape material and the stitching went much better - the wires and rooftops all seem smooth and continuous. This is a 180 degree pano of our street.
  21. SIJ Day 9 - Political Rally, Exeter. NH

    SIJ Day 9 - Political Rally, Exeter. NH

    Came across a Town Hall meeting for the Republican candidate Jon Huntsman tonight. Lots of action with media coverage and some political activists.
  22. SIJ09 HDR revisited.

    SIJ09 HDR revisited.

    Back patio again - southern end. With our strong sunlight the camera by itself exposes for the highlights leaving the tree underexposed. This is a bracket from -3 to +3 EV. The X100 only manages +/-1 in camera but the EV dial lets you shift the brackets - really needs a tripod which I used...

    SIJ Day 8 - Morning Walk, Portsmouth, NH

    Went for a morning walk in Portsmouth and so did this guy with his music player as well.
  24. SIJ08 Sweep Panorama

    SIJ08 Sweep Panorama

    I'm using the SIJ to get to know the X100 better and today tested the sweep pano effect. The subject matter was fairly demanding with lots if regular patterns and the camera was caught out (see back of chair) with the objects so close to the lens. I think it would work better with landscapes.
  25. Revolutionary Monument, Lexington, MA

    Revolutionary Monument, Lexington, MA

    Had some time to walk around Lexington, MA today and took some shots around the Lexington Green where the revolutionary war started.
  26. SIJ07 Jack

    SIJ07 Jack

    Jack (and our son) go home tomorrow. Taken with the X100 and tweaked with Perfectly Clear plugin and in LRm to balance the bands of sunlight and shadow.
  27. SIJ Day 6 - Winter Beach Scene, Hampton Beach, NH

    SIJ Day 6 - Winter Beach Scene, Hampton Beach, NH

    Took a short walk on the beach late afternoon and lucked out with pretty nice light and some clouds in the sky.

    SIJ06 Golden Shower Take#2

    After yesterday's unsuccessful shot I've revisited our tree today. Hopefully more contrast helps.
  29. SIJ05 Golden Shower

    SIJ05 Golden Shower

    That's the name of the tree - selective colour used in Silver Efex Pro.
  30. SIJ04 Jack

    SIJ04 Jack

    Jack belongs to our son who has been visiting over the holidays. Jack is a Rottweiler/Kelpie crss and is 2 years old.
  31. SIJ03 Clutter

    SIJ03 Clutter

    Taken at my computer as a 'safety shot' but quite liked the Colour Efex Pro treatment so am posting it.
  32. SIJ02 Garlic

    SIJ02 Garlic

    Left it late so resorted to this narrow dof with a bit of SEP2.
  33. SIJ01

    SIJ01

    An uninspiring subject but this is a 6 shot handheld HDR which I'm pleased with from the process point of view. Shot Raw X100 and tonemapped in Photomatix which did a good job of de-ghosting..
  34. First Macro with the x100

    First Macro with the x100

    Took this on my kitchen table. Just wanted see how sharp this camera is. Was not in "macro" mode, just used manual focus and flash. Some sharpening done in pp.
