NYC with the X100T Wcl-x100 & Tcl-x100

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys I just got back from a quick trip to the Bigapple

I settled on my Fujifilm X100T which has a fixed 23mm f/2 lens(35mm equiv) along with the Wide angle conversation lens Wcl-X100 and the Tele photo conversation lens Tcl-X100. This simple kit not only inspired me to see things differently but also made it a lot more exciting trying to capture the essence of the city. 

 

Would love for you guys to check out my shots in my blog link below.  thanks for looking!

There are some very nice pictures on your website.

I do think there is some repetition that would benefit from a smaller selection of photos (e.g. there are 3 photos looking out from a glass fronted building, there are several very similar looking at the Empire State Building), so viewers get to see the ones you think are "best". 

It is also a pity that the weather when you visited central park wasn't very conducive to outdoor photography (grey skies etc) - it's always frustrating as on short trips there isn't much you can do, but perhaps consider a black and white treatment, or perhaps shooting in a different way to avoid the weather and grey skies?

There were a few that I thought were a little weak (big concrete block dominating the frame in the photo of the Lamborghini) or perhaps didn't really belong as a "set" (dog on the subway).

I hope you won't take his negatively, there are some really good photos there, but I think they would have much more impact with a tighter selection, and bring out the vibrancy you were trying to convey.

Excellent pictures - no poor ones at all but some are inevitably better or more striking than others. As Artuk says, while you'll obviously keep them all they do need thinning out to a selection of the very best in a manageable length of slide show. This keeps viewers attention fresh and maybe leaves them wanting more instead of tiring of hitting the next button.

I envy your trip to NYC with your X100 . You have some great street photography. I agree with you about your camera choice for street photography, the X100 series Fuji cameras can't be beat.
