Lovely shots Hugo!.....my favourite ones are:
"Shopping for Lunar New Year - High Street flower shop" and "Working late".

Of those two I really love the trademark Hugo colours of the first one. There's something beautifully gentle and harmonious about the way you treat colour in some of your night shots. It's hard to say exactly what it is but it's unique in my experience I know others have commented on it too at Photo.net and DPR.

It's really great to see you so enthusiastic again about posting your great photos.

Hi Hugo,
These are some wonderful cityscapes. It is great to see your 'new toy' in action and to see you so thrilled with it's performance.
As Ian mentioned, your colors both both night and day are always something special. It is nice to see that the new camera handles them as well as your little fuji does.
Thank you so much for the post, and I look forward to many more.

I really like: "Shopping for Lunar New Year - High St Flower Shop" (great exposure and subject), and "Connaught Road Central" (nice composition and makes the 'smaller' IFC1 look huge!).

A privilege you're allowing us a sneak peak at these shots (glad I bookmarked your blog ;o)

Take care,

Thank you all for the warm words!:-)

Bramham: so glad that you find my colour treatment (should I call it selective desaturation) gentle and harmonious. My original idea was to control the distractions caused by the "irrelevant" colourful details... seemed to have been addicted to such treatment later on.:-)

Gus: How nice to see you stopping by! I trust anyone would be as thrilled as I if he witnessed such contrasting brightness being captured so effortless!

Smith: yes, I can't stop photographing IFC and this little flower shop. I love that flower shop too much... it's where I bought flowers for the first time on 14 Feb 1981!:-)

I started to feel a little lost tonight - the amazing camera was already returned earler today. Fortunately, I've still got quite a few pics to help me remember the wonderful time with it... more pics will be coming.:-)

Best regards,

Hi, I'm Pasquale, an Italian photography amateur. Sorry if my english isn't very good, but I'm still learning.
Congratulations for your shots, I like very much them. I'd like to buy a s100... and I've found your nice blog. It seems as if you enjoy very much this camera!
In Italy, the s100 will be sold in March, so there's no way I can find some full-resolution shots.
I wonder if you could send me some JPG or RAW without resampling or anything else... just the files come out from the camera. Is it possible? I hope so...
