manufactured. Those footprints were mine. I let the tip of the wave touch my feet and as the water was returning i stepped back and took the shot.

Cheers!

45mm with close up lens (3 images)
In reply to SLOtographer, May 5, 2012

Three test shots from today when I was trying out the 45mm/1.8 together with an achromatic close up lens (Minolta close up lens No. 2, 3.8 diopters). Shot at F2.5 and F2.8. Image quality is pretty good with basically no additional chromatic aberrations and magnification suffices for my everyday photography. I do not think I will need to buy a m4/3 macro lens any time soon.

April versus May
In reply to SLOtographer, May 5, 2012

The dramatic April and lovely May characterized in two images. Ok, i admit it's quite extreme processing but i couldn't resist as LR4 offers impressive tools compared to LR3

April:

May:

Wonderful colors and thin DOF. I wish my test shots would come out like this

Link to NYC shots
In reply to SLOtographer, May 5, 2012

Hi all - I've been MIA from this weekly thread for quite a while during the month I was in NYC shooting. I've already posted three fairly extensive sets of m43 photos in this thread: (the second and third sets are sort of buried by the thread structure at this point, but they're in there):

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1041&message=41408443

And I also posted a bunch of shots I took with the Fuji X-Pro 1 on the Fuji Forum in this thread - I've posted non-m43 shots here often enough before I thought I'd at least share the link.

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1020&message=41376560

I'd promised to put a lot of these shots up in this thread upon my return, but having put them up more globally, don't want to pile on everyone by posting smaller sets again - hard enough to keep track of what I've posted where already. I"m sure some or most of you folks have seen those shots already, but for anyone who hasn't, now you can! For any masochists in the house, I have a huge Flickr set from the whole trip, desperately in need of editing, here:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/sets/72157629714382477/

The month was great - a near total immersion in photography in an incredible city that I love spending time in. I enjoyed the non-photography time too, but the camera sort of gave the whole month sort of an organizing principle, or purpose...

I haven't shot anything in the past week, since I've been back, and don't know when I'll start again. Once in NYC for a month, I'm gonna have to get pretty bored before I start shooting around my home town again. I'll try to check in on this thread and comment sometime, but probably won't be as active in it as I have been in the past, at least for a while. Hopefully, I'll start shooting again soon enough and will get back into the swing of it here.

Beautiful shot - I know you shoot on this coastline a lot and there's something about shooting in a location you know really well. You obviously know this location VERY well because your shots are always quite nice and this is right up there with the best.

In reply to µJoe, May 5, 2012

I think those first couple of close-up shots (probably the first in particular) are really good at showing both the individual struggle of the run and the scale of the event simultaneously. I'm really struck by those shots.

Just the basic architecture of that third shot really does it for me. Fairly simple, VERY powerful eye-magnet...

Very nice shot, Aleo! I could sit there for hours, listening to
the waves.

Nice Jonathan! That last one is my favourite because of the interesting
foreground and the lights in the background.

I bet you say that to all the tourists.

That location seems very inaccessible, how did you reach the spot?
All in all a powerful image, Bob.

I like the Cambodia image, it could be a bit larger though. I hope more images from your journey will follow!

May 4th and 5th in the Netherlands
In reply to SLOtographer, May 5, 2012

Hi all,

May 4th is WWII Remembrance day here.

Gouda:

Do you like my experiment with the subdued colours?

May 5th is WWII Liberation day. Not much celebration going on
with barely 10C/50F temperatures and a harsh easterly wind.

Utrecht:

All taken with the E-PL1 and 14-42mm. C&C always welcome!

Cheers,

André
