    First thing I do when sitting next to the window - clean the window of all the grease, smudges and who knows what! Beautiful shots you took. Do you use electronic shutter as well?

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I rarely use the electronic shutter. Too many weird artifacts. That shot was at 1/160, I believe.

    Pretty much only when I need to be super stealthy. Apparently the X-H1 is supposed to be improved but the mechanical shutter rules.

    As to the windows that is absolutely necessary these days, isn’t it?

    Some windows end up being pretty scratched up to begin with. The missus brings along disinfecting wipes. :)

    My normal “workflow” takes about 1 minute. :D

    These were shot in Velvia so the colors were pretty much good to go.

    Open image in Snapseed. Rotate, crop, a touch of structure/sharpening if needed. Ambience/contrast etc. if needed. I love the Fuji film simulations.

    Thanks! With a subject like that and perfect light even I couldn’t screw it up. I bet an iPhone would have done well but I’m glad I had my Fuji gear along for the trip.
