    Fun pictures with Oly, Sony, Sigma, Pentax and all the Others

    I thought I would start a new picture thread for all of us "Others".

    I'm just new to Olympus, so here is one with my E3 and 12-60 SWD in the Badlands of South Dakota this week.

    Joe, I love the tones from that Sony.

    Simon, Lovely muted tones from the DPI.

    Clay, All three photos put a smile on my face.

    Riley, I love your POV in the MG photo. Excellent! I'm curious about what lens you used on the E3?

    Jono, LOL, What do you think the furry bunny story is???

    Clay,
    I love both of those.
    South Dakota and Wyoming have some wonderful old homestead scenes, but I sometimes have trouble getting my driver to stop for photo ops.

    It's a little known fact but true; cross my heart and ......

    I took a few fun pics with my E420 and my totally new 50-200 at the weekend but haven't converted them from RAW yet. I will of course post one or two shortly.

    Seeing all the above I clearly have lots to learn; good place to start though isn't it.

    moggi1964, Welcome. I'm looking forward to your photos from your new lens.

    This one is from late this afternoon in the Red Canyon, Utah. We are headed for Bryce Canon and Zion tomorrow.

    Okay, so my wife just completed the Susan G. Komen 3 Day 60 miles walk in Philly (her second) and I went along to cheer and take pictures.

    Here is a sample of the 270 I took. I hope I got the scaling right. These are conversions from the RAW and no post-processing has been done. All shot using the 50-200mm Olympus SWD:

    Well, getting that lens was a good place to start - it's a lovely lens, sharp at all apertures and all focal lengths.

    Congratulations!

    Oh, a thread I can add to!

    Pentax 20d w/ 31mm lens. The flaneur has often been referred to as a "walking eye," but these images are part of building body of work where I (or my wife and I) walk the dog and let her lead us like a "walking nose" instead of eye and then I make photos of the places she leads me/us to on her walks.

    Hi Cindy,

    You must be zooming through for you to shoot at both parks during the same day! Here are a couple of mine from Bryce, 1st one is from about year ago September and the 2nd one is also from Bryce but in December of last year.

    Kodak SLR/n + Zeiss ZF 35mm or 25mm, don't remember exactly,



    Fuji S5 Pro + Zeiss ZF 25mm,

    That is a good way to put it. My husband has limited tolerance for photography.
    Your shots are both stunning. I wish I could be at Bryce to see the snow.

    Thanks Cindy, I lucked out with a snow storm during my visit, the Canyon was transformed and became even more magical, it that's possible.

    Here are a few more from Queens Garden, Fuji S5 again;

    Thanks Jono, you keep on giving me very weak knees with your more humbles! I want to avoid your posts, your images are just too good not to be tempted, even if I already have way too much gear than I'lll ever need.

    David, The snow images from Bryce are relly amazing. I really envy you being there in the winter. This is a wonderful series.

    Jono, your humble is gorgeous. I'd print that one. You really are making that Sony sing.

    Thank You David
    Still - I'd have said that image could have been taken with almost any camera . . . truth be told it might have been better with a 4:3 sensor with a little more depth of field . . . . until you wanted to print it really big!

    Mind you, the A900 would do a grand job on those Bryce pictures!

    Will, your overhead shots with the DP1 are great (I like the one in the other thread of the Thames even better).

    It's been raining here today . . . and raining. Just before sunset the sky cleared, and the dog needed a walk:
