Flickr member David Williams took this wide angle shot of London’s Tower Bridge with his Fuji X-E1 and a Fuji XF 10-24mm f/4 lens opened wide to 10mm (about 15mm in 35mm terms).
What strikes me about this image, besides the fact that it’s a very nice composition of an interesting bridge and set of buildings in London, is that there is no visible barrel distortion on the left and right edges. This is impressive for a very wide angle image with any camera/lens system but I have to say, having owned a Canon 5D and a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L lens (a very high end lens) this is even more impressive.
London City Hall (the distorted building on the right) is shaped that way but if it weren’t it would be a tell for barrel distortion.
It’s possible he’s corrected distortion in Lightroom or another image editing program but I’m thinking not. I’ve asked him up on Flickr so we’ll see but I think the lens is very well made and he’s framed the shot perfectly.
Flickr member David Williams posted this amazing image of both the Tower Bridge and London’s City Hall building taken at moonrise with his Fuji X-E1.
For those who saw his other image of the City Hall railing, this is another perspective on the same scene and you can see the railing in the bottom of the frame.

My flickr contact Christophe FROT took this fantastic image of what looks like some plastic junk in leaves with his Fuji XE-1. This is brilliant work and reminds me of the series of cigarette butts done by Irving Penn.

My flickr contact Helena Normark just returned from a trip to Peru and oh my, she really got some amazing images with her Fuji X-E1 and 14mm lens.

Flickr member Patrick Dricot has posted a wonderful image of a photographer possibly taking a portrait with the subject in blur. Fantastic.
