Dear Brandon and Steve,
first of all a huge THANK YOU for bringing us this site and the opportunity to send in some pictures. Before opting for my Fujifilm system, I did a lot of reading on these little cameras, and your site kept popping up with interesting articles, so keep up the good work!
I am a medical doctor from Germany. Photography is my hobby and I shoot for fun, not for money. I like to share my pictures, so I finally launched a website about a month ago (www.jangroener.com). Moreover, I share the same passion for high end audio equipment with you guys.
Today, I send in some pictures of Tegernsee, a small lake near Munich right at the border of the Bavarian Alps. I went there a couple of times (since I had been living in Munich in the past), with one time in the fall of 2014 when we were expecting a crisp and clear (although cold) day with some gorgeous sunshine and nice colors from the autumn leaves (I went there with my fiancée to enjoy some spare time, not necessarily to take photos). What we got instead was fog. A lot of it. And the weather just wouldn’t change for the better on that day. So, instead of being miserable and returning to Munich instantly, we made the best of it and took a long walk. This allowed me to take a couple of pretty moody shots, three of which I want to share here. On that day, I had my Canon EOS 6D in the trunk, together with a 16-35 mm f/2.8 L, a 24-70 mm f/2.8 L II, and a 70-200 mm f/4 L IS. So my kit wasn’t light, but I didn’t mind since we didn’t go on a multiple-day hiking trip. I know that this is mainly a mirrorless site, so I will tell you I have a Fujifilm system as well which I absolutely love, consisting of both X-Pro1 and X-E1 bodies. My favorite lenses for that system are the gorgeous 14 mm f/2.8, the 35 mm f/1.4 (I use them both a lot), and the 56 mm f/1.2, which I don’t own yet (but I testet it out, and it is most likely going to be my next purchase). I am quite curious what Fujifilm is going to do with the next generation of cameras (X-Pro2, X-T2 etc.), and I am pretty sure you will keep us updated with helpful reviews on these future products.
So again, I want to thank you for letting me share these images.
