Past three days I've been in Lisbon for work.
The offices from the company I work for, are at the EXPO area, so that's what I could shot. I wear my DP1s because of its small size and the nice colour abilities:

Beautiful! My preference goes to 1, 5 and 7, the first one being really great. The place looks superb...

Wonderful shots of a familiar location! You should also consider walking 20mins North from the Expo area, the bridgefoot of Vasco da Gama bridge is spectacular

why no other company has picked up the foveon technology is beyond me. just great shots with a wonderful and different technology. i miss the beauty, breadth and depth of my sd14, imho capable of producing better than my 5d; i dont miss the operational garbage that made it impossible for me to use effectively. you handle the camera beautifully!

Thanks for your kind comments. I did the same mistake, getting rid of the SD14 because I was unable to effectively get rid of the green cast. Now that I've got Adobe Lightroom and I've been able to fix my old SD14 pictures, I'm wondering if I get one again (or a SD15). My best pictures were taken with it...

hi jes

well, i didnt have green cast but i hated the vf--i found it like a dark tunnel and i could never focus it correctly, even with magnification add on vf. also, i hated how it performed in low light, just awful for me anyway.

things are much easier with 5d, but when you hit sd14 100% and you hit 5d 100% i will take the foveon image, to my taste. problem for me is i am 100% with 5d 10x's more than with foveon! Laughing

Hope you are able to make it happen.

I had been wanting to pick up a SD14, but I missed the fire-sale when they were selling them the cheapest (US $350 new!)... and once the SD15 hit, with its entry price of well over US $1000 for a body only, the used SD14 prices went through the roof! Sad

Excellent capture of modern architecture. Great colors. Love the aerial cabs over the sea, nice subtle colors almost monochromatic. Surreal effect in the last one, the polarized windows must have done the trick.

Cheers, M.

Great colours and compositions. Loved them all, especially 1,3,5, and 6. Shocked

Right!. I was shooting from inside the top floor at the hotel through the coloured glass windows.

Thanks for your comments.

Thanks for your comments, yadisl and Scheimpflug.

Now I'm seriously looking for a SD14, and in exchange I'll get rid of one of the other SIGMAS (SD9, SD10).

Regards.

Excellent series, Jes! Love the colors from the Foveon sensor, and the
odd umbrellas/canopies and gondolas shots are my faves.

A common misconception is that Foveon sensor gives good colours. In reality it's colour accuracy is quite a bit inferior to typical bayer-array based sensor. Even the Foveon developing team admitted this a long time ago. Sigma marketing team on the other hand... Wink

Still, nice shots by the OP.

Anu, I and I'm sure many others have seen your views concerning the
Foveon sensor and colors. No where did I say they were accurate colors,
but that I liked them. If there was a sensor out there that gave me colors
like I see with dark green sunglasses, I'd probably go for it. Why? Because
it'd be like walking on the yellow brick road to the Emerald City. Laughing
