Thanks Andy & Ghosthunter,
As an aging amateur photographer, I guess I was getting a little jaded. I love photography but was starting to get lazy, thinking 'been there, done that'. Then I read about the X100, saw the photos people on this forum were taking with it, result - enthusiasm rekindled!

Yep, I agree with everyone! It is the kind of camera that is like what you USED to have and remember with fondness. I have recently purchased another one after stupidly selling mine and it's just like being in a different world :)

Good for you, thekeddi. I agree, there is more than element of retro about the X100. However, it's also a fantastic camera in its own right. Before buying, I looked at the many rave reviews by professionals & amateurs. I looked at fantastic shots even at F2 and/or 1600+ iso. I knew I had to have this camera. My first series of test photos were a mess, mainly focussing & exposure issues. My fault! I should have read the instructions & users advice first. Now focussing & exposure is no longer a problem. I've only had the X100 for about 3 weeks so still on a learning curve, reading up on experienced users tips etc (thanks guys, male & female :) ). But this camera has so much to give, the learning curve is fun.

PS. Because it was a recent purchase, many of the annoying early hardware problems had been corrected.

Nice set of images Glyn, I feel exactly the same way about my X100 and it is an easy to carry dream to use camera.

The images look very much like houses in Cheshire where I used to live, where are they?

Thanks for sharing,
Ian

Good for you for enjoying your camera, Glyn. Often people get tired of their cameras and go on the search for a new one. I still love my X100, too.

I'm looking forward to using my own for many more scenic shots than I have in a long time. That's a lovely village!

Thanks to all who have looked through my photos & a special thanks to those who posted responses. I've taken many hundreds of of photos ranging from 2.25 in square & 35 mm film to digital but haven't previously submitted any for internet posting etc. Acquiring an X100 & simultaneously coming across the SC forums where many varied, excellent photos were posted, I decided to 'have a go'.

Glyn - I really like the entranceway to the pub the best ---I find the contrast between the vibrant colors of the flower baskets and the brick on the road and stone in the entranceway to be very pleasing.
