One of my first shots with my DP2. Just received last saturday and I'm loving it already.

Beautiful - both the photo and your friend's eyes!

Hey guys, it's my first post here. I shoot with a Sigma DP1. It's my first serious camera and I've had it for over a year. I'm still learning and "keepers" are few and far between. Here are some of my favorite shots:

I especially like the bridge shot and the sky in the Chevron shot is fantastic.

Prototype, welcome and thanks for adding your photographs to this thread! I'm also really glad that when I click on them I can see them larger and appreciate even more their details - especially the first two...and see more of your work on Flickr. You've obviously gotten this camera down beautifully! My two favorites are the B&W with the pipes (seen larger really shows off the details and tones) and that Chevron sign with the evening sky...
Will, thank you for your three - each shows such a different view and how this camera has worked so well for you, too. Super textures and color in that first one - very nicely framed with the couple down at the base... Your second one, seem almost like a set from a play - with an extremely realistic setting. Don't know if that makes sense or not to you...but it's the static feeling - which I like very much. Great reflection and unusual feeling of light, with the limited color palette.

Thank you for the comments, BBW and Kathy :)
It's certainly a difficult camera and it might seem absurd when I tell someone that the autofocus doesn't work and I simply guess the focusing distance. But I do get some satisfaction when I see that I'm getting better at nailing the focus and composing the image properly using the optical viewfinder. Perhaps when I get a faster camera, I'll realize how bad the camera truly is. But in the mean time, I find it enjoyable.

Rekindling my fondness for Foveon...
My daughter's antique scooter given to her by her grandmother.

Had to do a search on "Foveon" - Foveon - not being the highly technical sort. Nice choice of focus, Andrew. Looks like a very cool scooter to have around, too.

I at one time really considered the DP1, But when I could not try it nor return it if I did not like it I passed and got the G9. Then the DP2 came out and again, I wanted one and again, I ended up with the G10. Now that I have the LX-5 I doubt that I will ever own one. Well, if a good price came up on a used one, maybe. For now, I will simply enjoy the images on this thread :)
