    Very nice man. Taught me a lot today about various farming tools. Very kind and hard working, simple man. He said he used a camera like mine in Korea, he said it was the same one. I looked at him and thought Van Gogh. So I adjusted my camera and went with it. Life is grand when you can see a Van Gogh in a moment. I thank the Lord that I am breathing and able to be taught.

    Fujifilm X-Pro 2, 60mm 2.4 macro. I love this camera every time I pick it up. It has a little MOJO to it that the XT2 doesn't, haven't nailed it yet but it is there, for me anyway. SOOC jpeg, minor 4:3 crop.

    Van Gogh and @TMorrow inspired. He has been a wonderful inspiration for me.

    Thanks Brent. It's a wonderful camera to say the least.

    Thanks bud. I think it may be. The setting was perfect really, light shining it barn on his face, he posed for me, background was dark. Just glad I seen the potential for a good render. Q button, custom standard simulation 1 (People), manual focus, spot meter, frame, focus, fire. Converted to jpeg using shooting condition, simple and quick.

    Thanks Derrel, really digging these Fujis.
