Good shots, especially the last one. How did you get all the movement with a 1/200 shutter?

E-M5, Oly 12-50mm, f 4.5, 19mm, 1.0s at ISO 200. Tack sharp despite hand held. So pleased with this camera.

Here's one for the Aussies.

Those first two are so ominous!   Perhaps not your intent, but the shadow seems to impart a sense of menace.....

The reflection one is neat.  I took a photo a couple of weeks ago of a storefront mannequin and only much later realized that the curved glass window had a self portrait in it...but all distorted and very hard to see.  I was intrigued by that  (posted below).... you have to really look to see it, though.

This makes me want to try some more shots with reflected or indirect portraits....maybe that will be my next project   Thanks for the inspiration!

Impromptu car club

Apparently my local shopping mall car park becomes a car club on Saturday nights. 
Who knew?

Some beautiful cars - from classic Aussie muscle cars to modern performance machines.

Both shot handheld with the Olympus OMD EM-5 and the 12-50mm f/3.5-f/6.5 EZ.

Days in the Dordogne
In reply to SLOtographer, Oct 6, 2012

Back after quite a while! Glad you're still alive Slot, and glad that this thread is still going strong. Sadly I'm going to cheat a bit, as these pictures were taken 3 weeks ago and not last week

Any C&C is welcome, mainly composition-wise I would like to hear how to improve my shots!

Cheers, Ries

Young and old, each leaving their own ripples. (Bordeaux)

Chateau de Castelnaud, close to Bergerac.

Backyard of our vacation home.

Picture taken at a parking spot next to a french highway!

I really do love trees. (Park, Bordeaux)

Evening at the mansion.

Botanical garden, Bordeaux.

Really liked the green backdrop (and the thistle ofcourse).

The girlfriend, frolicking at the Garonne riverbank, Bordeaux.

Cropped a bit too much, but I liked the idea of this particular crop.

One Portrait Pic
In reply to SLOtographer, Oct 6, 2012

Posted a few pics before and many noted that the white balance was off. I've tried to make it right and this was my best attempt.

Thanks for looking.

I'm not a big fan of flower pics but I love your thistle pictures, the green background is perfect. Well done.

The girlfriend shot is special, and the reflected child although I agree the crop is not ideal.

Also like the vibe of the holiday mansion shot.

Lincs, I like the 2nd to last a lot. The 4th from last might be worth a crop to just include the figures, the water and nothing else? Just a thought.

One location, two lenses, three evenings
In reply to SLOtographer, Oct 6, 2012

crepuscular rays

On my computer, the original files have more detail in the dark areas-- particularly the second-- and I understand some of this loss of detail may be due to DPR's handling of the files.  Some of it is certainly down to my inexperience with processing.  Anyway, I processed with Lr 3.6, cropped a bit to get the 16:9 aspect, and experimented with gradiation filters in an attempt to balance exposure.  The colors are approximately true to life.

The first was taken with the G1; the rest, with the EP1.  Oly 9-18 and 40-150.

C&C very welcome.
