    Yes I agree but this somehow has a "B&W" feel to it if you know what I mean. Is it the camera or the PP?

    Hmmm yes, I see what you mean, perhaps the GRD shooter in me seeks strong compostion, lighting and contrast. All things which make for a good B&W...the color is muted save for the splashes of blue and orange...

    Indeed the GRD series looks to be quite good with color, Lili. I like the lines and contrast very much.

    Here is one where the forms are less important that colors more so

    It can very definitely do color! I think it does B&W soooo well that a lot of us tend to use it mostly for B&W, but it can definitely do color as well...

    Agreed. I bought it for its B&W but really once I saw it could do colour, I just used it for that, most of the time. Of course its now taken second place to the XZ for a while :)

    Petach, your colour processing is very nice. How do you do that? What program are you using?

    Cheers man. I always argue with security guys who try to t ell me I need a permit to shoot this building,....from the street! I stand my ground. If they threaten to call police I tell them I will call police myself. Usually shuts them up.

    Pretty wild! Could hurt one's head, given its lack of ANY moorings to reality. But a pretty cool trick. I was not familiar with that app...
