    These are some of my first serious efforts with my 2 week old Fuji X100. Sorry last one is large, I'm trying to get my resizing right - not too big, not too small! :smile:

    they look good. I think it's best to hit return and give them a little space to breather on the screen. Keep up the good work

    Thanks Luke - A quick reply & good advice! I'll resize a little more & allow more space between the photos as you rightly suggest

    Nice pictures. I like the last one best.

    As a rule of thumb for posting images keep the longest side to 1000 pixels or less.

    Thanks for sharing; your images reinforce how great the color rendition is of the X100. I also like the last image, the Union Jacks look very festive.

    Love the photos, just bought another X100. Couldn't help myself :)

    If you get a flickr account and just copy and paste the BB code, it resizes them for you :)

    Nice set of images that bring back memories - spent many years in my youth living in Chester (Hoole), great City and photogenic with the walls & the Dee etc.

    Hope to see some more from you soon

    Hi Doug,

    The X100 is fantastic - once you get to know it! I've had mine 2 weeks. My first test attemps were rubbish. I went back & studied some excellant "how to" posts, videos, etc to see where I was going wrong, had another go & began to get photos I liked.

    Remember our mistakes can be rectified. In my case, thats just as well! :)
