    you should be able to figure it out...
    I'm loving your recent stuff Pete. You're clearly transitioning away from (or taking a vacation from) shooing people on the streets to making incredible images of the streets themselves. I like some more than others, but REALLY like too many to point out individually...

    Love them all, especially the second one :smile:

    'untitled-83' - is it just me or does the Zeiss 21mm have a ridiculously crisp 10-blade aperture?

    Specifically on 83, it looks like 4 images stacked? I see 3 distinct images of the bus holding still, and in the same plan of travel I see light trails that extend back behind the last "static" bus... Curious how you wound up with that.

    Thanks Kyle, This was a 10s exposure and it was happenstance that the three buses captured were either slow moving in traffic or pulling into a bus stop. Yes, curious effect and one I am happy to accept :0)

    Thanks Nick. Yep, that Zeiss produces lovely star bursts when stopped down. Curiously though....not all lights in the same shot!

    Thanks Ray, appreciate yours and others comments. I still do street.....in fact I did some this night but with the big 'ole 6d and 70-300 (unusually) I peak and trough with my street but I have posted some recently produced from the GXR/Zeiss. I thought I would miss the X100S in the same way I still shed a tear for my GRD3......but no! Loving this combo. Set it up and bang away without changing; hardly.
