Croatia

Almost 100% crop

The shot below is an almost 100% crop from a portrait oriented photo shot with a Fuji X100. That camera has a 12 MPix sensor and I think this shot nicely shows that the resolution is really fantastic (even if it has quite moderate MPix if compared to present standards) and it is possible to crop a lot. Sometimes it is very refreshing to test different crops and learn that way also a lot of compositional matters.

Famous red roofs in monochrome

Dubrovnik Old Town, Croatia.

I was amazed how cool these iconic roofs look like in B&W.

Kala is fish in Finnish. Nevertheless it tasted good. 🙂

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia, what a beautiful place to visit. I was there only four days with my wife to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary but both of us fell in love for this place almost immediately. Old culture, old buildings, beautiful Adriatic Sea, and very friendly people. What more can you wish.

What comes to camera gear I had only my Fuji X100 with me (plus iPhone) and it served me wonderfully throughout the trip. No hassling with lens changes or zooming – just shooting. Very liberating. Its 35mm equivalent lens is really a gem for general shooting. And JPEGs all the way; with Fuji cameras (X100 and X-Pro1 which I own) I do not shoot RAWs anymore. Really no need for that. I used OVF 99% of the time and really enjoyed that too.
