    Crikey! I'd be much too paranoid to take mine out in the rain! Great shots though, well done. Like Karen, I have a preference for the first :)

    Thanks.

    It's easy to shield the camera with just one hand. It's also cheaper to replace this than my Fuji X100.

    I like #1 a lot. I've dropped both of my GRDs and each marched on just fine. I've often shot with them in rain, just cover with one hand.

    Good for you for making the most of this rain - and I have to say that your first is my favorite, as well. Very moody and the lighting is super.

    Nice photos! There's a certain drama and mystery which is well captured.

    Man o man these images have been great. Don't you fellas go making me regret letting go of my GRDII now ya hear! :crying: Taking nothing away from the photogs, I do love the high contrast look of these files. Though I'd not have achieved these anyway as I mother-coddled my little GRD (and anything else that's been in my custody) far too much....:blush:

    Congrats guys!
