you are all too kind! appreciate it!
hi there!! thanks for the kind words. i personally still prefer drzs over mine. His pair is something I've always admired. Texture is beyond words and plus his 001 uses the old fabric. certainly not the same as mine!
hi john sorry for the late reply! Totally understand where you coming from. I am not a master of lighting or anything you mentioned. Third picture was taken with fuji x100 f2.8. shot outdoor under shade, bias lighting. I had no control over the lighting situation. In this case post processing is necessary (at least for me) as to balance and provide clarity for the picture. However, I kept it to minimum. My goal is to get clearest picture without distorting the meaning. Rest assured no sharpening was done on this one. I'm have plenty of stuffs to work and editing pictures meticulously just to be posted on forums isn't something i will spend my time on. And I suppose, different handphones/laptops will give different image quality and thus affecting perspective. I am sure you have encountered such situation where the image you capture with handphone/camera is different when you see it on computer screen. It is all back to individuals and their ideology of what makes a good picture. or maybe..... it's just the mccoy thingy
