Upper Florentine River, Tasmania.
However the forest pano season is almost over with the windy spring months almost upon us, so I've decided to do a series in the faddish "industrial" decor style on some of the old farms that surround me here, and for which the X-Pro will be perfect: heaps of resolution, no weight to lug around, quick between shots during a pano (no need to pause for mirror-up vibrations to settle).
Still unsure as to exactly where I'm going with this, but I did have a play around the now derelict old farm house where my next door neighbour was born 80 years ago just to try a few things out. As this series will rely on heavy-handed PP work, I hit the 3-rows x 15 shots pano very hard with all manner of S/H, Color Efex , H/S.... you name it (click on preview thumb for larger view)
The potential of using this camera as the basis for a stitching tool is enormous - this picture, at native resolution, came in at 265MP, i.e. one hu-u-u-uge print. Of course mashing it down from 1.5GB to 360KB has had a bit of a depleting effect on things, but this sort-of conveys the grungy look I believe this fad style asks for.
The series will likely be interspersed with single grunge shots of closeup segments, the 16MP Fuji files allowing easy A3 prints as well as the ability to crop moderately without detrimental effect should that be necessary:
