    My walk this morning took me to one of our local wetland areas, this one only a few miles from my house. As our temperature has plunged from a high of 80F to highs of barely 30F in the space of a few days, frost and ice was the flavor of the morning. It was sunny, though, making for some interesting play of light & shadows. NEX-6 + Pen F 38/1.8 and Vivitar T-Pen F 85/1.8.

    Yeah, it was a bit on the chilly side, but it wasn't too bad. I do a fair bit of winter hiking. I did 10 miles in 0F and a foot of snow last year. I love those kind of hikes.

    Nice scenes!

    Tony, out of curiosity, are these shots processed at all?

    Thanks Nick. I did run the RAW files through RawTherapee and adjusted the contrast in GIMP. I found some of the SOOC JPEGs were somewhat flat for my taste. That is probably the one minor nit I have with the NEX-6; otherwise, it is a good camera.

    Tony

    PS: I have a preset I created for RawTherapee that I call "Autumn Punchy". It ever so slightly enhances saturation and sharpness, while adding some black to the shadow areas.

    I imagined you did something with saturation cause it created some weird (and un-natural) blue spots/areas to some of the photos - I get that too when I over-do it with the saturation slider, lol :)
