  • Replied in Current blooms
    I'm lucky to have these few flowers to photograph in the dead of Winter.  Rich This is why I insist on a camera with a pop up flash.  Shooting into The Sun, I never would have got into the back of ...
  • What a great set, KB.  The composition on the first one is great.  Getting in close to the roses is effective.  I'm going to have to try that.  I get too obsessive compulsive about framing and not ...
  • Replied in Lenten Roses
    I'm happy your back has let up, WhyNot.  What gets me is the partial bend, washing dishes, cooking, brushing teeth.  Mine will lock while stooped and I don't know it until I straighten.  If I were ...
  • It's a beautiful land, Dave.  The red earth, the white mountains and blue sky make for great color contrast.  Very nicely photographed, too.  Put a good leg under you and you can do that trail in ...
  • Replied in Heat Wave
    Thanks, Dave. I grew up hoping modern methods would finally discover Nessie. After all, the mountain gorilla and giant panda finally were, after causing the discrediting of many zoologists who ...
  • Replied in Heat Wave
    Thank you, Andrew.  So, you're not used to a beach covered in splinters?  They get under your skin and grow on you.  Seriously, redwood splinters are poisonous to some humans, as they are to most ...
  • Replied in Heat Wave
    Second day of heat wave. 76 degrees here at The Home today, broke daily record by 5 degrees. First four from just before the heat wave. Last two from today. I suppose I possess a cruel streak for ...
  • Replied in Warm and Sunny
    Andrew, I don't really care what type of hinge the screen has.  I see that as a gimmick, anyway.  The only deal-breaker is lack of a pop up flash.  I passed on the E1 due to lack of one.  Now that ...
  • Thanks, Ron.  That's what I was going for.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Sunshine today, Andrew.  Three more days of it to follow.  I'll have a tan by Wednesday.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Replied in Warm and Sunny
    Beautiful, Andrew.  I always liked the results from the E3, like these.  I'll bet you wish you were there, now.  Sunny and beautiful here today, 65 degrees!  Three more days of it forecast, then ...
  • It's art.  It's subjective.  And, I couldn't agree with you more, WhyNot.  Rich
  • Thanks, Lou.  Yes, storms blow in and rain starts quickly and without warning, if you're not in a place to look out to sea and see it coming.  I struggled for years with unsealed cameras.  Now, I ...
  • What are you saying, WhyNot? Why would you be surprised? Do you know something about that? Or just a guess? The E M10 has a pop up flash. Is there some reason it won't happen on an E M1 Mk II? No ...
  • What a beautiful flower, Harri.  Is that Finland's version of a daffodil?  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Well, Gentlemen, my analogy is to driving an automobile. Here in The U.S., many people, if not most, cannot drive a car without an automatic transmission. Put them in a car with a proper ...
  • What surprises me, WhyNot, is the E M5's reaction to the PanLeica lenses.  It cannot focus the 14-150, period.  Again, it racks, judders, finds a bad focus point, seems to realize it and starts ...
  • So far, Manfred, I've only tested the Sigma 105 mm macro.  I have other Sigmas, but not the 30 mm.  The E M5 struggles to autofocus it, and doesn't do the job.  I worry about damaging the focus ...
  • I just got a used E M5 with MZ 12-50 and MZ 14-150 II.  Finally got MMF-3 yesterday, so I can use my 4/3 lenses.  Zuikos, Pan Leicas and Sigmas.  The E M5 auto focuses the 14-54 Mark II almost as ...
  • That is beautiful, Richard.  I like the blue sky, instead of B&W.  The composition is great.  Nice work, Rich. http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
