Last two.

All in all I've come to the conclusion that the PL25 is terrific wide open but I need to learn to stop it down (when the lightning allows) in order to get some more depth of field.

The eyelashes picture is far too shallow and did miss the eye (either the horse moved or I missed focus or the focus point was too large). The saddle picture could've used some more depth too I think, not a whole lot but maybe a centimeter or so in order to give it slightly more detail.

Second, the camera did struggle with auto white balance inside the stable, not surprising though as the lighting was a mix of natural daylight, fluorescent and lightbulbs, all mixed after it hit stuff like white walls, brown wood, golden hay and other colored stuff. Easily fixed in post but rather then just changing the white balance I also had to change the color cast some, it was too green.

Having said that the entire thread has a very high standard and even though I may not comment on everything I truly enjoy and take inspiration from pretty much every single photo in here, they are different in many ways and it shows the enjoyment of photography, one subject can be shot in millions of ways depending on who does it.


Couldn't agree more!

Bob love the slow exposure effect on the chimney smoke/steam what ever it is.
Jae I must look into these art filters this set does show they can be used to good effect especially the two river pics.
Wilbus love the close up use giving us a point of view that is not the everyday occurrence.
Antje thanks for the kind words earlier. Humbled.

Great shots JuJu and Bob, did you use a GND filter on the sunset ones?

I used a neutral density Filter but not a grad.

I'm surprised you went all the way to F11. I try to not go above F8 as from that charts I've seen diffraction starts taking a heavy toll past that.

Little self portrait in front of a mirror while I was on vacation.

I need to find the one of me with 2 OM-D's and the NEX-7 all out at once.

Yeah, I understand. In fact, I can see a loss of fine detail in the foreground. Oh well, the sun rises every day!

Bob, great sun rise images. I have to ask what lens you used and if the 7-14mm how did you attach the ND filter?

Juju, what kind of foreground do you have there? Looks quite interesting, would probably work with a model like you say.

Bob, love the sunrise images and the contrast between the beautiful nature and old rusty broken pipes, superb!

I used a vari-ND and hand held the filter (77mm) in front of the Panny 7-14. It worked at 14mm but it's too wide at 7mm!

Speaking of the 75, here's one from this morning on Lake Michigan just south of Milwaukee.


Love this shot.

Some incredible images posted here over the last few days.

Severely overcooked a picture for fun.
