you should be able to figure it out...
A tough call among a few I did during my month long stay on the Amalfi Coast in July. I have a couple of landscapes that so perfectly show off the magic of the local scenery AND of the RX1. But ultimately if I fancy myself ANY sort of street photographer, I have to go with this one done with the Nikon A. I like it as much as any street photograph I've ever done - it's the very rare photo like this that keeps me coming back to street shooting even after long gaps in street shooting (like now - haven't really done any since a trip to New York in October). But to my taste, this is as good as I can do. Just walking down these steps past these kitchen workers taking a break at the back door of a restaurant, got past them, turned around and grabbed this, to the bemusement of the guy on the lowest step. Some of the others I might have chosen would have been more popular I'm pretty sure, but that's OK - this is about choosing MY favorite and this would have to be the one I'll come back to most from this year...

I have been lucky enough to have visited foreign climes in the past year. Australia, USA and parts of Europe. By far my favourite is this one. It brings wonderful memories of the 2 months we spent down under, and especially 2 weeks at the "Shangri La" hotel in Sydney. Every night this was the last thing we saw as we retired for the night, and the first thing we saw when we got up. We didn't shut our curtains and if I awoke early (as often happens, NOW 04.45) I would sit by the window and take in the view of the bridge and Sydney Opera House.

I had a hard time choosing between two shots: the geese flying through a patch of open sky in an awesome cloud formation, and the one below.

My wife and I have been taking walks on Peebles Island, at the confluence of the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers for 30 years, and on July 25, for the first time ever, we saw eagles.

She has outstanding distance vision, and as we were walking on the north side of the island, she said, "What's that at the far end of the dam?" I could barely see a bump; I had no idea if it was a bush, a rock or something else.

At 1200mm equivalent, the FZ150 revealed this:

Cheers, Jock
