I’ve used DxO Optics Pro for this image. I could have done it to de-fish the picture, but that’s not what I’m after. If I want ultra-wide and recti-linear, I just use an appropriate lens.

No, it’s that I used 1/100 s and ISO 1250. The advantage is, that I’ve frozen the escalator’s movement, and although everything up to ISO 3200 would be perfectly OK for an image like this, I routinely use DxO for everything above 400. It’s not necessary and nobody will peep at pixels, but then, there is more to DxO’s PRIME noise reduction than noise reduction. Color accuracy, dynamic range, they are all better than with Lightroom. They’d better be so, given that Lightroom renders in real-time and DxO takes half a minute for an image.

This is not my absolutely first image taken with the PEN-F, but it is the first published here. I needlessly used 1/50s and ISO 1600. I could also have used 1/6s and ISO 200, but I forgot and I only found out after I had returned home. DxO Optics Pro took care of the problem 🙂

It’s interesting to see how things change. This is one of a few high-rise buildings that have been built around Vienna’s new central railway station. Some of the architecture is boring, some is interesting, and sometimes even the boring gets interesting when seen from the right angle.

In any case the whole area looks strangely empty. There’s no organically grown infrastructure, and when you leave the immediate vicinity of the station, you are alone on empty sidewalks.
