    Hi My Friend Rafael,
    This is a fine panorama. Do I see some sunflowers in the foreground? All the best!

    You're right, Leica77, my friend, those are sunflowers that we grow to press our own sunflower oil. In that we bake our "french fries"

    Here's another pic of some sunflowers :




    and some random B&W conversions from our farm and from Moscow :

    Hi My Friend Rafael,
    The Sunflower Oil you obtain from your own farm must be really nice for baking "French" fries. The new B&W images are gorgeous. I especially like the images of a cat and the impressive church in Russia. The bokeh behind the sunflowers is very nice and smooth! We would like to see more images of Russia! All the best!

    These are all great. Some amazing B&W's in here. So much so I need to get involved too
    This is an older photo taken with the e-1. I consider it to be one of my best portraits.

    Don, this one and your recent photos in the "fun with" thread (Bodega Bay and Fort Bragg Ca), are very much to my taste. Lovely.

    Don (Streetshooter), I REALLY enjoy your photos, in part, perhaps, because it's a photographic genre that I am neither comfortable with, nor good at. Regardless, your eye for interesting subjects and juxtapositions, and your sense of composition are superb. Your website should be an eye-opener for those who moan about the shortcomings of the E-P1 for this type of work.
    Best regards,
    John.

    Re: Black & White pics, show yours !!!

    John - many thanks for your kind comments. I guess that is what these little cameras are all about....so small, one can always have them with you. The more I use this little gem, the more I like it. Good light is a big help too like in this sunrise Ft Bragg beach scene. I am still thinking about picking up a G1 also, but was kind of waiting to see what Olympus would do next. I would love for someone to come out with a 4/3 format sports camera. That tied to these tiny sharp lenses would be great. Time will tell. I certainly enjoy not having to carry around my big Canon gear all the time, and this is far less intimidating to any subjects also.Thanks again, will keep checking back to see all the fine portraiture etc, something I do not shoot but enjoy very much. Don

    Panasonic G1, 85mm f/1.5 Canon RF lens, 1/125 & F/1.5 @ ISO 1600 (I think)

    Nothing special about this except that I liked the way the edge light picked out Brett's striking profile...

    ...okay, that and that I was getting tired of reading all the bloviation on the M9 image thread about the "M look"... there are some excellent b&w images in that thread, but at web size the mystical qualities they're all talking about are purely in the eye of the beholder, and I don't think they look any more "rich" or "deep" or "rounded" or whatever than many of the images posted in this thread!

    Decisive momentum (no reference to the new member) comes at a premium.

    In my case, everything is a lucky grab since it is done with a 5 Euro Computar-TV lens and I have not "upgraded" my firmware for faster focusing..

    Yes, "subject stabilization" is obviously the next frontier for photo technology.

    It might work something like a Taser, shooting out electrodes that would paralyze the subject long enough to produce a good picture...

    I want something that would make people pose with a cheerful smile.

    How about that for a Combicam feature?

    Good ideas, Ranger but what good is a Combicam if it does not incorporate those features?

    My curious subjects mostly wonder about what sort of an ugly toy I am holding..



    (Fujinon-TV 25/1.4 @f/1.4 anyone use this gem? focuses blazingly fast as well.)

    I once saw a thread from a photographer who had mounted his flash and small umbrella on top of a safety helmet, then ran a cord down to his camera. It gave him a nice "off-camera" flash, and gave his subjects something to smile at (he looked a little goofy, for sure).

    John,

    Yes.

    there is another good one():

    http://photo.net/casual-conversations-forum/00CSnG

    lots of great ideas around.

    What I would like to see is some getting incorporated in the Combicams.

    I have to say I completely agree. Maybe the more seasoned photogs on this forum can tell the differences, but the shots taken by people who post here are just as amazing to me FWIW.
