Appreciate Hein. I have also managed to open Kameras.com last night on the ship (network a lot stronger when most sleep) and they have sefondhand gear which they guarantee. Fuji X1 with pancake 27 @ R7k which is not bad I'd say, a bargain deal I think. Got the lend option as well. Even lenses then from both you and him ao lets first see if I make it into the takeover team to the ice before I get all excited.

Thanks for the offer

doesn't matter how the cookie crumble - you are welcome to use my kit for a while when you are year.  I would like to hear your opinion about the Fuji Xs.

Can't lend my camera for a long period since my laaitie is due to study art next year with photography as one of his subjects.  but the lenses is cool :thumleft:

If you are keen on increasing your photography knowledge/inspiration then this will be of interest.  This 5 day deal comes around once a year and gives amazing discounts on a whole bundle of training videos/ebooks and software.  I bought a different bundle last year and it was definitely worthwhile.  But you have to be quick as it expires in about 3 days from now.

This year they have included my favourite photo editing program Luminar which alone is almost the purchase price of the bundle.

I have no association with this lot and just post this for your interest.  Especially with Tom's earlier posts in this thread about wanting to make money out of photography.

More info on Luminar (and the updates with regards libraries coming to that program)

Thanks Amsterdam

Unfortunately I can't do anything quick now since we are still lying near the customs berth and everything is just soooo slow today.
My bankcard expired a year ago, my sim cards are expired...nothing works and by the time I get off the ship the banks are closed which puts everything on hold till Monday after I have seen the DEA officials.
Laying out money before I get work again is also no go so I will have to pass but I have a lady friend/photographer that may give me some valuable lessons not only in photography but the way forward.

I know there is elsewhere a panoramic thread but thought to post it here since this thread is a tad more popular in photo board.

Looked at this view and it was just dull in a way with dirty pea soup green coloured warer and no clouds. I done a 7 frames stitch and made the colour of the water blue by means of a gradiated filter and toned down only on temp.

I also waited for the yacht to come closer to give it some dimention of sort
