mostly the 25mm PL, I would be interested in knowing what you consider the strongest and weakest pictures in this set

Imho, nr. 4 and 6 are the best, the last 2 the weakest

I like your B&W technique very much. The dog is my favorite (very Elliott Erwitt-ish). I don't care about the cat nor the last image from the nightclub. I think all others are just beautiful.

Nice set
In reply to Buchan-Grant, Jun 20, 2012

Well, starting with the negative (always easier to gripe), the cat shot is (IMO) by far the worst/least interesting (but compared with many shots posted here, not bad).

Love the dog shot, really like whatever it is you did to capture that second-last shot of the young man and woman; last shot I wouldn't like ... except you got that great expression on the young woman on the far right of the photo; otherwise it would look like a ho-hum club/concert shot.
Anyway, a great set of shots, and rather difficult to pick a one best.

You have some really fine images here (no surprise here!). The dog is my favorite. The cat not so much! And I'm a cat person!

Thanks for posting your threads which include many fine images from the EM5. I am hoping not to purchase the EM5 (unless I keep viewing shots like these and my will power weakens).

I really like this set. I do think #4 would be better cropped significantly -- the top third adds nothing at all and really if you maintained the same proportions you could probably crop away the top 1/2 and it would look even better.

thanks, I appreciate the comments. that particular picture was about the restaurant staff watching the workmen up in the top third of the shot. for me, it wouldn't work from just an aesthetic point of view. But maybe the story aspect isn't as obvious as I thought:)

Nice set Niel...
In reply to Buchan-Grant, Jun 20, 2012

Strong comps, the last is my least favorite, like the first but keep coming back to the guy washing the roofs down that narrow street/alley.

Well done....

I love them all, to be honest. Last ones even have some eastetical value.
But nr.7.. why is it here?

I have 2 questions, if I may:

  • Where/how do you do the B/W conversion? I assume those aren't out-of-the-camera JPEGs.

  • How do you like PL25 in real life work? I was choosing between it and 20/1.7 and the sound of constant aperture change on PL25 drove me nuts... So loud, present and no way to turn it off. Any thoughts on that?

yes I can see how losing the top third or making it square format might improve it!

Wanted to clarify the statement about last pictures (color):

I meant, even being out-of-b/w-theme and pretty modern, they still 'hold your mark', if I may.

Great stuff. Your post made me reconsider the possibilities of OM-D.
Will have to give it few more chances
