Visual thoughts by Wouter Brandsma
Week 17 was mostly about learning my camera, trying more color, and coping with my back and the ‘too good‘ weather.
The photographs of this ongoing project will also be updated here.

Beetje kleur kun je wel hebben.
Thank you Kristin and Michael!
Every Monday I am watching your great shots. Its allways a good beginning of the week.
Cows, water and bicycles. These are the topics when I am thinking about NL while living in Saxonia.
I’m sure you’re happy that it’s raining at the moment
A gorgeous set, Wouter. I particularly like the third one which is mostly a silhouette with a strong rhythm and a wisp of color around the edges.
Had no rain here Björn. Just some clouds. Still better than just blue boring skies.
I’m sick of rain, but it makes for some lovely photos.
Shiny roads, wet pavements, reflections, drama in the sky. I don’t mind Elaine.
Great pics as usual. Honestly speaking though, I was surprised to see you going GFx way. How do you find it compared to Ricoh UI and overall handling?
The GF1 is quick Sagar. Only the GXR with the 28mm comes close. Will I do think the Ricoh UI is spot on, I am familiar enough now with the Panny that I do know which button’s I need to press when I want to change some settings. The Ricoh GXR is quiet, but for me it lacks a focal length similar to the Panasonic 20mm lens. I still do use the GRDIII though!
First time i see this page,
you are doing a great job with th GRDIII, love the way you postproces the pics too.
Inspiring, your color pics is what i hope to make too.
Can you share your workflow?
My guess: sharpenng, coss rpocessing, vigneting, maybe a bit curves?
The photographs from half way week 15 were all taken with the Panasonic GF1, but before most are taken with the GRDIII. The photographs in this set http://wouter28mm.wordpress.com/2011/04/03/week-13-2011/ were all GRDIII and color (not something I do very often).
I am still working on a color workflow, so these are still all experiments. Cross processing are some of the stuff I try to figure out, but I keep sharpening to a minimum. With the GRDIII (and in fact all Ricoh cameras I had) I wasn’t so confident with color. The GX100 was OK, but all others were for me much stronger in B&W. What I do think is that muted colors do seem to work with the GRDIII since the primary colors (RGB) are strongly present without much tonality.
