**** This Week Through Your M43 May 12, 2012 ****
May 12, 2012

Greetings M43ers! Welcome back to the weekly C&C Thread!

M43 Onion News

Olympus has been sweeping up the gold with their new, highly regarded OM-D E-M5. Olympus has now joined Rovio to create the "Angry Birds" special edition of the E-M5. That's right! If you turn on the Super Gnarly Control Panel, go to menu HHJ, scroll down, hold the shutter release for 3 seconds, tap the screen, and then turn the dials 4/3rds of a turn... then you'll unlock the special E-M5 Gold Egg. It then makes all your shots in the next 5 minutes look as if they were taken during golden hour.

Instructions:

1. Reply to this post and change the TITLE

2. Older photos are fine. Please tell us about how you captured the image.

3. Please reply to at least one other thread.

Thank you for your participation!

New neighbors (Return of the Foxes)
In reply to SLOtographer, May 12, 2012

These guys usually show up somewhere in the neighborhood each year. Sometimes next door, sometimes down the street, other times blocks away.

This time they were at my neighbors directly across the road from me. They were only there for a few days and were entertaining to watch but they have moved on now.

All but one with the 75-300 and heavy crops. Very little PP - some contrast and cropping.

This one with the Panasonic 45-200.

I asked my neighbor if he had seen them and what he thought about the foxes in his yard and he said he hadn't even seen them (they are mostly active in the morning and then late in the day).

Thanks for looking.

And I love these last two.

Portraits with Oly 45mm 1.8
In reply to SLOtographer, May 12, 2012

I took the Oly 45 to a friend's birthday party. Here are some of the portraits. Camera was set on face recognition, which worked fairly well. I'm learning that the quality of the light on the person is as important (if not more so) than the lens. As is the background selection - even if it's out of focus. As always, I'm not totally satisfied with them, but I'd be interested in views. Correct white balance was a problem - they all needed quite a bit of fixing.

No. 1

Is #2 or #3 better:
No. 2

No. 3

No. 4

No. 5

No. 6
This one still doesn't look right. White balance?

This is the best one, IMO:

Great use of the wide angle. The scene really looked better in B&W. More atmosphere, or something. What did you use for the conversion?

Watersports this time
In reply to SLOtographer, May 12, 2012

European Championships here this week. The local clubs, in fact, have quite a tradition of generating European, World and Olympic champions.

Six pictures in 2 different versions each. Now is it just a matter of taste which one you prefer? Or just drama vs. …? I took them all within 20 minutes at around 7p.m. yesterday (= course in shadow = HIGH ISO (800) to get reasonably short shutter speeds (1/350 – 1/500) , but not too bad for colours) at the end of a practice run for some of the teams to familiarize themselves with the course for the next day. I just wanted to see how my G2 reacts when confronted with “fast sports”. Well, didn’t do too badly. Noise in some of them couldn’t really be prevented owing to necessary high ISO, and 800 is the limit, especially if you have to do some really heavy cropping with all of them. But I liked the subjects.

All RAW, all PP in Lightroom 3.6. All pictures taken with Panasonic 14-45 mm, G2, ISO 800, shutter 1/350-1/500, most at about f5..-7… All single shot AF.

C+C welcome, but don’t mention the borders, please. I seem to be incorrigible when it comes to that.

Severe rain has kept me a little weather bound, so here's a shot of my homely dog, who I think might be a mix of Toto and a flying monkey...

I did get out for a stroll on the docks... this shows heavy duty fishing line on a commercial fishing boat...

I like that.....at first I had to hunt for the other one as my screen isn't wide enough! Reminds me of the cut-away drawings where you get to see all the inside bits. Works well in BW.

E-M5 at the Pocono Half Marathon
In reply to SLOtographer, May 12, 2012

Been away from this thread for awhile. This whole work thing really gets in the way of photography!

My wife ran her first half marathon last Saturday. She's normally the one on the sidelines supporting me, so I jumped at the chance to be a fan. The start and finish is on the track of the Pocono Raceway. Can't say I'm a huge Nascar fan, but I have to tell you that it's pretty cool being down on the track. I won't bore everyone with finish line photos, but here are a few from the race.

1: The race was run on Cinco de Mayo and this woman ran all 13.1 miles in a taco suit. I was pleasantly surprised by the AF speed of the E-M5. I was talking to friends and saw her out of the corner of my eye. The focal point was towards the left so when she got to that point in the frame, I fired off about 4-5 shots in about 1/2 second. I wasn't trying for the panning effect, but I like the result.

2: Here are what I can only assume to be her family or friends:

3: Nothing special here, including it to give any Nascar fans the track eye view. Looking at it now, I should have converted to B&W.
