    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    James, Uwe, Charles, Raf, Steve - great images. I still haven't managed to get the main part of the Cretan pictures organised, but here are a couple to keep the pot boiling:

    First - the touch shutter is wonderful for shots like this, taken in a local bar.



    The path up from the Aradhaina Gorge (nice to jog up it in 40C)



    Bee Hives in Anapolis


    all the best

    Don't tell me you really did climb that path at 40℃, did you ?
    I remember spending a sweaty week in Prague at 30℃: no fun ...

    Kind regards.

    HI Bart
    Not that one - and not at 40, and we certainly didn't jog!
    Still, we did it's partner (on the other side) at 35, and yes, hot and sweaty is definitely the description! On the other hand it makes the inevitable beer taste soooo good!

    jono:
    i really like that LCD touch shutter as well, and for face shots, but my finger tends to trigger the eyelevel detector, how do you get around that?

    I agree it's an issue . . . . but I do get around it (practice makes perfect!).

    Knorp, so much for the OMD not being suitable for action shots!!

    Great stuff! Which Flashgun did you use?

    Hi Dave, thank you and I'm pleased you like the series.
    As for action photography I'm not sure my shots really qualify.
    The subjects, although moving a lot, are basically stationary.
    You can do this with any camera IMHO.

    Flashgun ? No flashgun here ...

    Kind regards.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    From the Zion Workshop: I brought an OM-D and a Cambo/IQ140. The Oly is a lot easier to use! And it can do a fabulous job. Here is with the Panasonic 12-35/2.8.



    Best,

    @ Bart
    Lovely circus series . . . did you take a bevy of children with you . . . or was it just you and the camera?

    Matt
    that's great Matt . . . I was with my local pusher today, and contemplating the wonders of the A99 . . . but the truth is the oMD really does come up with the goods, and it's small, and such a joy to use.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    more amazing shots guys.

    Bart, those "Circus" shots continue to astound me.
    I sometimes wonder what constitutes an "Action Shot" Bart, it seems to me that with regard to your point about:

    "As for action photography I'm not sure my shots really qualify.
    The subjects, although moving a lot, are basically stationary.
    You can do this with any camera IMHO"

    applies to just about any action / sport shot.

    If you know your subject, have a fast reacting camera and set it up correctly (ie: know what you are doing) all action can be frozen

    Not all cameras are capable of this - nor are all photographers. You just happen to make it look easy!

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    A few more from our European odyssey

    The first was taken with the Oly OM 35-70 (prob at 35mm FL [70mm equiv] but can't remember the apperture):



    The next three were all taken using the macro mode on the Oly 12-50 - such a versatile lens! I know it's not the sharpest wide open but so good for walk-around shooting.

    RavenMad - love the Venice shot and the macros
    Mike - have you been drugging those deer!
    Matt - that's a lovely backlit shot - excellent.

    Here's three more I've been working on casually!

    Thanks for your comment, Jono - love that one of the Sea Squills! The church one has lots of impact too.

    Nothing serious here - was just having some fun playing around with the 'Diorama' art filter and the 12-50:

    Excellent - makes everything look like models.
    We're off to Venice at the beginning of November - I guess there won't be any t-shirts and sitting outside then!
    Hopefully the weather will be okay for photography though.

    all the best

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    Thanks Jono. We were in Venice in early September and the weather was great - as you say, probably getting a bit cool for t-shirts and outside now though.

    I have a few more shots taken with the diorama filter but those four were probably the best ones. I reckon the filter works best when your shooting angle is high and your subject is framed in close with walls or other high objects - that makes the subject seem even more 'toy-like'.

    Got lucky with this one. Was walking through a street market in Amsterdam when the missus wanted to look at some clothes inside one of the shops (of course!) The sunlight was coming in from a window at just the right angle and fell on this t-shirt:

    (Oly 35-70 @ 1/13)


    This from the Amsterdam botanic gardens:

    (Oly 12-50 macro @ 1/80 f/6.0)

    You were just to the left of me when you shot this, and I believe Jack was in the middle and higher up on the rocks for his capture.

    Re: Fun with the Olympus OMD

    my first large pano with the EM-5 + 60mm macro. Shot from the top of Hengistbury Head (an Iron Age village location and SSSI) overlooking our harbour on one of the few really sunny days recently. There was a massive tide which filled the harbour to the brim and I reckon every single sailing boat in the region was out on the water. Who needs the South of France

    Created from 20+ images the finished file is a monster of over 120,000 pixels on the longest side and is destined to become a tryptich canvas of 9ft. (I've just finished a 4ft version on lustre paper from my epson R3000 which will be going into a local exhibition in a couple of weeks and it looks rather fine

    Don't know how its going to show here but here goes anyway

    I waited for ages for all the people to move out of this shot but took a couple anyway while they were still there - never did get one with no-one in it but I think this one kinda works anyway.
