Ray, I am loving your shots!
Please do not ever get rid of your X10 again...ever!
Can you tell me what PP you used on the set....particularly the B&W's.

Thanks so much Neil. The processing on the B&W shots is mostly done in Silver Efex Pro after some very minor tweaks in Lightroom. No particular secrets, just play with the sliders until it looks right. Usually add a few control points to most shots. The color shots are just Lightroom with Color Efex Pro used for the borders...

I agree Ray; hang on to it.

Ray, I love the shots. I have just come back from Copenhagen, having taken my Leica MP as main, and the Fuji as backup (I also had my GRDIII in a pocket, 'cos I LOVE "HiBW" ). The X10 is such a nice handling camera that produces splendid results. It ain't pocketable, but then not much in life that is worthwhile, is...

A couple more from a walk with my dog. I love the Velvia over-saturated colors so much I can't help but over-do them just a bit more. Reality has never been my obsession!

Really nice. FYI, firmware 2.0 is out for the x10. The major change is the addition of a quick menu when you press the raw button.

Ray, one of these days you'll settle down with one camera system and start delivering some decent images.
(PS- Nice stuff.)

Great shots Ray.
I'm with you all the way on this. I like my images to "pop" too.

Steve - I upgraded the first day I had the X10 - a definite improvement I knew well from the X-Pro.
Neil - oversaturaters of the world unite!
Gary - thanks and god I hope not! When I played a lot of guitar I had three instruments (one acoustic, two electrics) for playing different kind of music. When I was heavily into cycling I had a few different bikes for different types of riding - I'm not into it now but I still have three (one for knocking around town and two serious road bikes with different geometry and different attitudes about them - I also used to have a mountain bike and cyclocross bike and fixed gear). Now that I'm into cameras, I continue to like the variety in the shooting experience. None of my gear is all that complicated - I'm able to learn it and commit the controls to muscle memory even when I change between cameras/systems. Kind of like having Campy on one bike and Shimano on another - it takes you about 30 seconds at the beginning of each ride to remember what you're working with and then its automatic - same with my camera gear. The OMD excels at some things, the X-Pro at some other things (with some overlap), and its always nice to have a compact do-it-all for when that's all you want to carry and think about... But I can switch between them and be perfectly at home with the new piece of gear I pick up VERY quickly...

Ray, I see your X10 is up for sale. I have to ask: What is replacing it? Did the Sony grow on you?
