Borscht and homemade russian buns
Great picture. Makes me hungry. I never tried borscht until we went to Kazakhstan. Didn't think I'd like it. I was wrong. Those buns look good. Can you PM me with instructions on how to make them?

Yowza! Great pics in here! They finally got my Q shipped, so it should be here in a couple of days. Can't wait! :-)

Thanks - I like the fact that I am getting such true colors from it - I didn't touch the image - this is exactly how it looks being a drab cloudy winter day.

Congrats on the 06 Stan - I've noticed also that the Q has very accurate color reproduction.

Good to see the 06 in action, Stormtech! Looks like a very promising lens indeed.

Here are a few family shots from the holidays to show the versatility of the Q (one cropped).

Starting to get the hang of Color Effects Pro 4 and all the filters. Some interesting stuff for sure. Let me know what you guys think. Oh and Happy New Year and all that jazz!

A little bit goes a long way...

My "go to..." CEP4 filter is "Darken/Lighten Center"... with it you can place a very subtle amount of additional light on your center of interest and give it just the right amount of 'pop'... I use it as the last step in almost every image.

Cheers...M

This is true. Oh and the Darken/Lighten Center filter is great! I will now be adding it to my standard repertoire.

Thanks. I liked yours also, especially the person fishing and the mushrooms.

I don't care what others think, this is a fine camera. long exposure, ambient light.






shot at 3am in morning, ambient light from full moon, some diffusing cloud cover, long exposure:

Great showing of the Q's low light capability. What were the ISO and exposure times?
