Great set, pntx!
I really like the point of view in #1, the joyous feel of #2 and the lighting in #3.

Great reflections and composition, Jacquot!



From a bicycle trip in my 'backyard'.
I find the combination of cycling and photographing difficult. Much more hassle to stop and take a shot.
On the bicycle, when I take a camera, it's almost always the p&s though. I don't feel comfortable risking anything else.

These are from last April.


Panasonic FX500 f/6.3 @ 4.4 mm, 1/800, ISO 160 & Silver Efex

I've substituted this one with the one from Ghent below.



Panasonic FX500 f/2.8 @ 4.4 mm, 1/320, ISO 100 & Silver Efex




I'm a real fan of b&w but the next one needs the colours
Panasonic FX500 f/2.8 @ 4.4 mm, 1/1000, ISO 100 & FilmPack - Fuji Velvia 50



I have a guided tour of Ghent coming up in two weeks. Depending on circumstances - weather mostly - I'll take the p&s along and I might come up with some replacements.

Well, the weather didn't cooperate. Really misty.
However, I do like this one.

Panasonic DMC-FX500, f/4.3 @ 9.3 mm, 1/400, ISO 160 & Silver Efex

Today called the Richardson Olmstead Complex, this building once housed the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane.

Taken with a Panasonic DMC FS7 P&S camera while on a bike ride.

Wonderful.
Like an illustration for a gothic novel.
Great processing.

Thanks, Bart. That was done with my Nokia phone (Silver preset), with some additional processing in Corel Aftershot Pro, mainly for a bit of sharpening and adding contrast.

I loved that 2nd one you did! The one with the trees. The others are great too, but that one is awesome!
