Last week I mentioned that I was returning my recently purchased Panasonic G9. I had bought a kit and it turned out the lens that came with the G9 (it was a Leica 12-60) was soft down one side. I’m pleased to say that the replacement kit arrived today, although I haven’t had time to take it out of the box. Fingers crossed this lens is better.
Interestingly, I’ve missed the little G9, probably because I did what I promised to do. I worked through a comparison of its image quality, pitting it against my Fuji XT3. I won’t reveal my findings here but if you head over to my website you can read the whole thing
This week’s image is another that I shot using the G9 from a couple of weeks back. It was a very threatening sky, but it was the contrast with the sunlight on the foreground that caught my attention. I’m not sure that I’m entirely happy with the colours but the light at the time was quite unusual.
I shot the scene handheld using the 12-60 lens at 12mm. The exposure is 1/200” at f/8.0 and ISO200. I then did a little work in the Nik Collection and some limited Dodging and Burning.
I hope you like the image and have a great weekend. I need to get back the Affinity Photo book that I’m writing.
