    Nothing Rusts like a Deere, lol...

    Still having a lot of fun shooting everything I can with the X100, lol. I actually shot this last Sunday, but hadn't decided what to do with it yet. Now I have...

    Glad to see you got the bug. I have not picked up another camera in the 18 months that I have had my X100

    This Photo is superb - No Question it would be on my wall.

    The only bug I have is the mottling of the sky over the "J" - what can be done about this? I wonder if its inherent in the Fuji's generally

    Thanks!

    With regard to the sky: that sort of thing is inherent in the compression of jpg compression and is usually "underneath" any threshold of visibility -- but in this case I ENHANCED it rather than suppressed it. I like the way it almost looks like convection distortion above the radiator. I'm sorry if it seems off but it was a deliberate inclusion.

    I totally understand where you are coming from John & agree with the convection distortion - perhaps this could be enhanced

    I've used haze filter to soften this sort of feature in the past with varying degrees of success

    It's a "creative choice" I made to wildly enhance the blue contrast in the photo to pull it out. I discovered that look by accident when I "went too far" with an adjustment, but I liked what it looked like and went with it.

    Sometimes, a "flaw" in an image can be exploited -- and sometimes it simply can't, lol. But we have the tools to support our choice either way and that's a good thing!
