Thank you Bobby.
Yet I did not capture how good it really was. The light was incredible and have tried this to capture this photo a few times with this light, not succeeding as well as I see it in the flesh by a long way.


Could it be that your exposure was a little short and not far enough to the right? Anyway, it's pleasant and easy on the eyes.

beautifully detailed bay scene Julian and I agree that the lighting is spectacular. Makes you melt. Is it the south west cost by chance?

Those dog owners should pay you big bucks for those portraits!

Bobby I tried several differing exposure settings, none was what I would have liked but I wont give up, I am often there. This was stitched with portrait images, which has not helped..

Bit of an odd one messing around with a reflection image.

Hey Neil! As you may know, I am a volunteer photographer with an animal shelter. These dogs are up for adoption and it is my job to make them look good! It's the least that I can do for a man's best friend!

What a large Rolex! Interesting choice of tones for that one Flypenfly.

Ok, so I had a little GAS and purchased the metabones for nikon mount… here are a couple results from it with the 50/1.8 first, then the 35/1.8. Both are wide open with some standard we sharpening applied.

DOF is thin and not very forgiving at these close distances, but fun to work the MF skills a bit...

I also ordered an adapter to try my Zeiss 50/1.4 planar on the OM-D. Just for fun.

Last evening preparations before the fishing season opened last fall in Turkey. The fishing season will take them to 2-3 month journey in the open seas, away from their families. They work with small pay with share of the fish sales, so their families depend on what they catch:

What are MFT users thoughts on the Sigma "Art" line of MFT lens? I just sold off most of my Nikon stuff to buy MFT gear, what are the must haves without spending too much money?

BTW, these images look fantastic and I can't wait to contribute to this thread!!

I know nothing about the Sigma MFT lenses. One of the "must have" lenses would be the Olympus 45/1.8 lens. This is a great short-tele portrait lens. It's now selling for $349. For that price, you won't be able to find anything remotely close in terms of lens speed and sharpness.

Thanks Bobby, I might give one of the Sigma lenses a try. They have 19, 30 and 60 focal lengths. Unfortunately they're all f/2.8. I might try a 60 and report back. I was extremely impressed by their 35 f/1.4 "Art" lens on my Nik
