    This is near Warwick castle - just off the m40. I'm still drawn to this place in search of the illusive perfect shot ( which is probably at dawn or dusk ). As it's around 90 miles from home, it's not going to happen but I can dream

    Anyway, some recent ones with the xf-1 - showing the crops as they've grown

    Great shots and No.1 hits the spot for me, nice bold windmill and the foreground crop has just enough clarity and motion to make it really stand out - superb shot that would make a stunning wall image.

    Colour with very light HDR version of the last one with a slightly different crop - I'm not happy with the sky as the XF1 can struggle with the dynamic range but i'm nit picking really

    Thanks - I took almost the same shot with my d7000 as was surprised how little difference there was in IQ - I really has to look closely to tell
