A shot from the weekend using the X100 converted with SFX.
I like the wavy sky effect on the right.
Great sky , and nice landscape !
Thanks Nikki, I just found it interesting the way the main sky activity was over the wood.
Very nice patterns indeed.
Great shot and refreshing to see new X100 images amidst all the X1-Pro hysteria in other forums!
A neat image Ian.
I certainly have no plans at the moment to get rid of my X100 (only got it 10 Dec) so still learning how to use it to effect.
I can understand all the current hype around the X-Pro1 as it is Fuji's first foray into the pro market for a while and is clearly targetting the major rangefinder manufacturer as well as some big SLR players - I just hope that the X100 was not Fuji's appetite wetter and will now be left on the shelf regarding firmware updates etc - I see that they are releasing a "Black special edition" version at an over inflated price and hope this does not signify their last gasp for the X100. It is a superb camera with great potential and considerebaly smaller than the X-Pro1 so can certainly serve as a spare so fingers crossed Fuji do not forget us.
Some cool cloud formations you caught there.
Very nice image. Well seen and composed.

Thanks both - great camera
Awesome photo! Was the original shot in b/w?
I shoot all my images in Raw and then convert to B&W using Silver Efex Pro
Seems a lot of folks use that program. Something I'm definitely going to invest in!
winginkris, I would suggest you download the free trial version and see how you like it before buying the full version.
Personally, I absolutely love Silver Efex Pro2 and it is my prime B&W conversion software - definitely worth a go.
Thanks for the info. When I get back to a computer, I'll definitely give it a try.
Downloaded Silver Efx Pro. Not a great pic, just looking for input. Really gives a plain photo some nice contrast that I was missing otherwise. Thanks for recommending!
Glad you like it - it is worth sticking with it. I use both the High Structure and HDR settings and like the results from both.
