I already posted a smaller version of this image as part of my XT-1 review but I thought I'd add it here too: a shot of my good friend Issa, reflected in the window of one of the metro stations on Sheik Zayed road in Dubai.

This is a shot of the JBR skyline in Dubai, taken from the west frond of the Palm, and was shot with the XT-1 and 14mm using a handheld (and panned) 1/2s exposure.

I still have quite a few more XT-1 shots to post, along with a load from Dubai and Oman, but in the meanwhile I thought I'd post a few more from our Venice Carnival Photo Tour.

As always, let me know what you think.

This was taken on my two day Landscape Photography workshop to the east coast of the UAE, during the recent Gulf Photo Plus training event, and features Gerald Donovan's collection of components that could loosely be called a camera :)

Another XT-1 + 14mm image, taken from the roof of the Shangri La hotel in Dubai, a location that I hadn't shot from before.

And if you missed the various announcements I posted yesterday, here's my initial review of the XT-1. As you'll see, it's very positive.

I know I've posted quite a few shots from this location, and I still have a few more to post that were shot with my Sony, but here's another XT-1 image taken with the 14mm. As you'll see if you take a look at the original, this one is more heavily processed than the rest, but I thought it would be interesting to see how far I could push one of the XT-1 files. I'm happy to report that I didn't run into any problems, i.e. no visible noise or other artefacts.

Here's another XT-1 image, and while I don't think there's any doubt about what this is, it might give you pause for thought.

I finally found the time to take a trip up to Fleetwood with the XT-1 and kit lens and came away with two shots that I'm pleased with. Of the two this is probably my favourite, but I'll post the other tomorrow and you can decide between them.

This is quite some way from being one of the best portraits I've ever shot - the focus is off, and he's not exactly 100% engaged - but I've posted it because I really like his skin tone. For the last few years I've been shooting quite a lot of portraits when I travel to Dubai, with both Canon and Sony gear, and have ended up converting a lot of them to black and white simply because the skin tones were off. Not by a huge amount, but by enough to be problematic. The XT-1, in comparison, does a much better job, to the point where I've only had to colour correct a few rather than most of them. So, not the best justification for posting an image, but it will do for today.
