Fuji X100 goes to Banner

I had a chance to spend about an hour out in Banner Marsh State Wildlife and Fish Area this evening.Banner is located about 25 miles outside of Peoria off of route 24 and features a 4,363-acre freshwater marsh.

I headed out with the intention to try some long exposures to smooth the water.  I did this by stacking two 3 stop ND filters on top of the internal ND filter of the Fuji X100. All images were shot RAW in B&W, and edited in Lightroom and/or NIK Silver Efex Pro 2.

Peoria Skyline – X100

As the river starts to thaw and the sun stays out a little longer I had a chance to get out and take some shots of Peoria’s unique skyline. All photos were taken with the Fuji X100.
