**** This Week Thru Your M43 (October 5, 2012) ****
Hi M43ers! I'm on the road, so can't put out the M43 Onion this week. But there is time for the
M43 Onion Coronation
sderdiarian, AKA Sailin' Steve, is the winner of the "Guess the GH3 Price." Sailin Steve put in the closest US price of $1250. When receiving this award, Sailin Steve thanked his family, his guessing skills developed while taking multiple choice tests as a youth, and the sheer volume of time he spends on the M43 forum. Congratulations Steve!!

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!
Apparently my local shopping mall car park becomes a car club on Saturday nights.
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.
Is the model the artist? I stare and wonder.
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!
The first for me. I think its a very strong image.
Bit of radial blur?
... and playing around with my camera phone:
Some more here:-
Nice! Self-portraits are very much in vogue this week.
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.
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.
