Surprise, Surprise.

Yet another of my snaps in flickr "Explore" this very morning. It's just a simple snap taken with my X-H1 at night of one of the benches along the South Bank in London. I Actually snapped it a time or two ago but have never bothered with using it. I guess it'll find its way on to this thread eventually.

The Leeds-Liverpool Canal enters the Liverpool Docks, through a flight of locks, to the left is the Tobacco Warehouse built in 1901, the largest brick built warehouse in the world, Through the central railway arch, the lifting bridge for the DOcks Road, and the 6 sided Dockers clock can be seen. Beyond that (and across the Mersey) is Birkenhead

X-H1 + 16-55mm

That’s a bit special Donna
That is wonderful :)
Truly gorgeous! :)
"Excellent" landscape style Fujigraph Donna, nothing more to be said.
Thanks so much, I was grinning from ear to ear when a) I found the bluebell woods and b) it was stunning conditions as it looked like it had just been raining too - no rain where I had come from which is just 1/2 hour away. Even the dog didn't want to leave - oh yeah that is normally the case as she is petrified of the car even after 11 years.

Really like that George ! Taken with a film sim or converted in post ?

Thank you Justin, appreciate your reply.

"Converted manually in post, I use no presets whatsoever but I do try to get either an FP4 or Tri-X (film look) to a lot of my mono work"

Having got rid of the remainder of my Nikon kit courtesy of MPB I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on a Viltrox 85mm f1.8. Seeing Donna's (@weebleswobble) recent postings I'm most envious of the extra reach over my XF50mm f2 prime and the nicer bokeh than I can get with the XF55-200mm.

But before I do...........a question.

I've been doing quite a lot of portraiture of late now that I've become a grandparent for the first time and while my granddaughter is not yet crawling and relatively static, that's not going to last long..........so.......how is the Viltrox at fast autofocus in comparison with the lenses I already have?

Thanks in advance for any feedback

If its slower than the 50 f2 then its not by much

I haven't had a native Fuji prime, so can't compare. My Viltrox is pretty damn good with autofocus, but for portraiture I would think a 50 would be much better, the amount of times I have to keep stepping back to try and fit items in the picture is often (and then my 23mm isn't on the camera as much)

Sometimes, when editing a custom setting, I select a white balance, usually Auto or Daylight (Fine), but pressing right on the controller d-pad doesn't take me to the WB colour shift settings. It has no effect at all. Playing around with film sims yesterday, I ended up with R+9, B+9 and couldn't change it. I came back to it later and for some reason I could then access the setting. I'm pretty sure it's not a fault with the d-pad button as it works fine for everything else. Is there some other setting that deactivates access to the WB colour shift settings?
