Hi Jim

Lovely golden colours in your short image.

Environment Nice clouds and shows the theme well, at least they have'nt built the houses there yet. Is it in surrey somewhere, looks familiar, but a long time since I used to live there if it is.

Far, Not Far, you had some luck with that sign, very clever image bang on theme, love the way the road disappears and also the very broody sky.

Thanks for the kind words:

I'm really pleased with the leaf image
The quarry image is not my favourite, by far. It's actually in Devon and on a protected pebblebed heath so absolutely no chance of houses being built, thankfully. It will now be left to let nature reclaim it, it's just an eyesore right now (and a very deep hole!).
The sign image is also in Devon and was taken v early on my way to work, hence the dark sky, but I agree it does add to the image.

Terrific, crisp shot with a great sense of fun!
The mono treatment works well, and as you (and @Dave70D ) say, it's enhanced by the higher ISO.
(ISO 6400 you say?! I can only dream of that! If I dared go beyond ISO 1600, it would look like I've sneezed a load of pixels on the screen!!:LOL:)
Excellent work Jim!(y)

I like the tones you have captured and the concentration on the guys face. Really Good.

I agree, well exposed fuji shots can cope with high iso pretty well (especially when converted to mono).
That's a fun looking shot, and he doesn't even look like it's difficult!

Thanks for the nice comments - i'm loving the X-Pro1

Love the richness to the colours. I guessed it was a Fuji ;)
When looking at the photo I like how it leads you to the rocks that are a bit off to the left. I initially thought they were an abandoned boat.

Thanks Tim, I'm loving the X-Pro1. I may even upgrade to the X-Pro2 next year (can't afford the 3!).
