    But the poms drive on the same side of the street as we do, they're Europeans too!

    Thanks BB! I think I need to get my monitor(s) calibrated because the colours seem to look slightly different on my MacPro and my Dell laptop, I'm not sure. But if you like the colours, I'm not complaining. :)

    They look good to me - I'm guessing it's the Leica look, in large part. I feel they have a bit of a polaroid hue, as well. Lookin' great to me on my MacBook Pro.

    I tweaked the colours a little in post but even before tweaking I do notice a discernible difference when I set the M8 to Lens Detection 'Off', compared with 'On + UV/IR'. The colours seem a bit more flat when it's off. When it's on+uv/ir, the colours seem to come to life a bit more.
     
  8. Wow, you had enough time to get out your camera and take a shot. Must have been a long light.

    1) There's always time during peak hour gridlock. :mad:

    2) I'm sorry to report that my camera was in its case still slung over my shoulder while I was driving. It almost never leaves my side these days. My girlfriend and I were at the shopping mall yesterday, I left my camera in the car because photography is not allowed in the mall. I told her I felt naked without my camera. She lamented that her boyfriend was turning into a photography nerd.

  10. Ya that's a bit extreme. Then again, there have been a couple of times I wished I had my Camera handy.

    The more you have it with you, the better. This is one of the reasons I like a smallish camera - and still, even with my LX5, I don't always have it with me much to my chagrin and loss of some good opportunities.:rolleyes:
