    I wanted to try the X100 to see how it performs for soft subtle semi nude images, this image is cropped, duplicated, blurred and selectively brought back in part.

    The lens is so sharp that images need to be softened to give me what I want.

    Nudes are not allowed on serious compacts.

    Karen, is yours a serious post? I'm just wondering, because all my Serious Compacts take nudes just fine! :biggrin:

    Sorry to any offended members and I trust that the remaining image will not be considered racist / sexist / obscene - not my intention to offend! :redface:

    Ian, that is lovely, not offended in the least.
    I have done, but never posted a series of Cindy Shermanesque cheesecake self-portraits.

    Thanks for the understanding, I just totally forgot about the nude rule and did not think the other image was in any way offensive - I have however, removed it from my gallery as well as this post.

    I just like the soft subtle skin tones that the X100 produces (even though the image has been softened / blurred), and it shows how versatile the camera is.

    Thanks Lili,

    Have to admit to never having heard of Cindy Shermanesque or seen any of the images.

    That might have been quite a journey into yourself.

    let me find one that does not come close to "crossing the line."
    Please understand these have come out closer to Bettie Page than Cindy

    Bettie Page did some amazing images, her mantle now rests with Dita von Teese who has some incredible work - I for one look forward to seeing a taste of Lili does Bettie.
