Hi Everyone,

My husband has been nagging me about posting photos on the forum, so I'm finally doing it to get him off my case!  Wink

I look at fondness at those photos, we frequented the area during school holidays when I was a kid.

Yep.  I started the wake up process at 5am!  We got up there just as the first light was washing over the house and quickly took pics before it got intense.

The water looks almost tropical..............maybe it is the time of day, or the angle of the sun.

Whichever way.......you've captured it at its most beautiful moment.

Langebaan never looked so good.........because of your effort...........Thanks  Wink

Just last month, I bought a Fujifilm S5 Pro, an 18-105mm VR lens, and a 70-300mm VR lens.  I get a lot of crap from my Canon friends:  my previous camera was a Canon 350D with a Canon 100-400mm 4.5-5.6 IS lens and a 10-22mm IS wide angle lens.  Though the Canon lenses were nice, I love the rich colours I get with the Fujifilm.  And when you compare the prices, the Fujifilm gives very nice results at a much lower price than one would pay for a Canon equivalent.

Funny you say that. Eisbein's Fujifilm also has richer colour than my Olympus. These cameras are not in the league you're talking about, but Fujifilm seems to get the colour thing right across the board.

That's actually what Fujifilm is known for.  The dynamic range of my old Canon was 7 f-stops.  Canon has recently come out with a camera that has 10 or 11 f-stops (not sure exactly).  Nikon cameras typically have a dynamic range of 11 f-stops.  My fujifilm has 14.5 f-stops, but I don't know what the entry-level fujifilms have.  Here's a URL for an interesting dynamic range article:  http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/dynamic-range.htm
