Aussie Birds. At the beach. Shot Oly OMD EM1 40-150mm @150 5.6F.

MN jpg from camera. no crop, just auto contrast. No sharpening.

Changed file to 200 dpi only and saved with 6 jpg compression (I couldn't find any info about sizes for galleries on the site).

Will do RAW later. Don't often get this close.

Happy with the lens but miss my old canon 300 F4 L USM with my old EOS 3 or 1D mk ii. I think the benchmark could be that sort of set up but I might be opening up a can of worms. I previously had the FZ200 for it's good reviews but sold it. Lets leave that for another forum.

Looking to buy the Oly M.Zukio ED 75-300 ed 4.8-6.7 mkii, is it good?

Cheers

Good focusing with the wires in shot.

Been dying to shot these birds for years, then find them 4m from dog walking track.

As usual the one I want gives me the "Bird" so to speak!

In both of these, the eyes make you think about what she may be thinking.

Re: Curious Swans - absolutely mad, Michael!
In reply to Michael Kilpatrick, 1 month ago

I would never dare shoot a swan portrait with a lens as short as 35mm or shooting a pair of them with 12mm! I think! Most unusual pix.

And look at that blue sky after a freezing morning. I was pootling along in the rail motor from Stoney Point to Frankston at the time you were taking the pictures and thinking "If only I had my camera with me, I would give Mordi Creek a bit of a work out." But my daughter has abandoned her EOS Canon and her G1 to take over my G6 for a couple of days for a party last night and a symphonic band concert this afternoon.

Oh well.

Cheers, geoff

Using the PL25 as a portrait lens ...

The Holy Grail of portraiture - only one eye in focus.

This one above is a rare case of my knowing what it is before reading the descriptive text - I grew up in the environment where Madame Mao's model operas and ballets were the only entertainment and I can even now hum some of the big tunes from this lady with the lantern. Speaking of Madame Mao, she was eventually accused of being part of the Gang of Four so a GoF picture coming up ...

The PL25 is even capable of BIF

I have known some swans with a mean streak that precluded getting this close, but these were amiable ones that were OK with a very close approach. The short focal length gave a nice depth of field that isn't possible with a longer lens.

It was certainly cold this morning - ice on my car for the first time this winter.

Cheers

Pretty impressive. The portraits have a lovely soft quality without sacrificing detail or colour. I may have to check out the trial.

I love 2,3 and 4. I find your compositions in these 3 appealing and refreshingly different.

When I first saw I thought that these were plastic swans being used as flower planters. the background trees looked like they were growing out of the swans' back. I had to laugh at myself when i went to full size and saw they were real. 2 very nice (and fun) shots.

re the museum pieces - so it's always a struggle to know how to photograph stuff like this and make it more than documentary photography. I think you've done a good job here.

Some months ago I did a load of 'portraits' from a work of art you'll probably recognise http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52928809

Now this is interesting - I'm going to offer up a couple of observations. Firstly, the white balance to me looks a bit too yellow. The blue parts of the sky are yellow-ish too. That might be your intent but my personal taste says 'no'

Secondly - Is there more to this that you've cropped off, particularly below and to the left of the lamp? I wonder if it could do with a bit more space. I'll sometimes do this in Elements if I haven't got the composition quite right in camera. As long as it's just a small amount around the edges it can resue me. This one would not be difficult to do like that.

Thirdly - move the watermark off the lamp and maybe to the RHS?

Finally - Shepherds Bush? Really? I wouldn't brag about that

Well worth the effort - I think this picture is terrific and it really appeals to me.

The end of a museum day, at Shepherds Bush of all places.
