Friday Image No.133

View from the Marsden Moors Estate. Sony RX10, f/6.3, 1/200″ at ISO80.

I captured this image last weekend whilst out for a walk on the moors near home. I was using the recently repaired Sony RX10, giving a real test. Looking at the images on the Mac screen at 200%, the results are superb. The camera is producing images that are way beyond the quality it previously did. I also note the front lens doesn’t have any play in it where it used to move slightly before – interesting.

I decided to shoot this scene because I liked the shape of the path and how it created a nice perspective with the distant path. Unfortunately, the continuation of the path into the distance doesn’t come through in the image. The other aspect of the scene that I liked was the strong sky.

My intention at the time was to process the image into black and white. Now that I have converted the RAW file and can see the lovely natural colours, I’m quite happy to keep the colour version.

I hope you like the image and have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Thanks, Robin, lovely image. I just purchased a Fujifilm X-T2, but am keeping my Sony RX10 as it is a great quality camera for walkabouts with its 24-200 lens. Have a great weekend!

  2. I think this is a wonderful image which gives an interesting perspective on the landscape. When seeing your blog, there are lots of beautiful images that you’ve made and I really love a lot of them. I’m just wondering, how do you deal with copyright? It’s really easy to just click on your photos and download them, is that something that you liberally chose to do so? Have a great day!

    1. Thanks for the kind feedback. To answer your question, I’m happy if people want to download my images and use them elsewhere. All that I ask is that they give me credit (not trying to pass them off as their own work) and link back to my Lenscraft website. The only exception to this is if people want to use them to make money. I don’t allow that and I will enforce the copyright. I have caught a few infringements in the past using image scanning services but it isn’t really a problem. Most people who enjoy the photography are happy to link and give credit.
