Forgot to mention the place. This is in Valletta, malta.
Thank you Scott, Dave and Rob
Forgot to mention, this Keris is coming from 14th century
Is nude art low key shot acceptable?
This is a Ferrari from 80s. What event is this?
Not only the car, but also the helmet is the old one. Senna's. And I assume that is Senna himself in it.
Sorry, forgot to mention. This was taken in Gozo, Malta. My tour guide says that this man have been playing accordion in that place for tens of years. He is playing accordion.

Rocky ID Olympian: @Pal2012
"Focusing? Really? The OM-D cant handle focussing on kids playing, sports nor any other demanding situation.
Give me a break."
"Total BS get a clue or get your eyes checked."
Geezz, you do talk like a God of photography.
Your photos in you gallery are not as big as your head nor your mouth. You have no photos of kids playing, you have some lousy car racing shots.
Its a free to talk forum, but at least back your mouth with equal works of photos.
@digitalvista, me hating? Never commented harsh on people before. Just annoyed by pal2012 comments looking down on people. See he doesnt like it either when I do that to him.
photo nuts: Brilliant strategy to generate web traffic in DPreview.
Nothing beats a multi-way fanboy fight. ;)
On the contrary, if you check Alexa.com, the reach nor traffic rank of dpreview.com didn't get a boost during the poll.
Rocky ID Olympian: Olympus E-M5 has:- great IBIS- just the right size- touch tilting screen. If only it has swivel like E-3/E-5- Live Time/BULB (cant believe not mentioned yet). Groundbreaking technology for long exposures- one key success is the new Sony sensor. It nullified the gap between 4/3 size and APSC. OM-D would never be as popular with Old 12 MP Pana sensor that Olympus was "forced to use liked it or not" for years.- the availability of m4/3 lens is just right in 2012. just only this year we have a wide selection of HQ prime lenses, and the 2 f2.8 zooms from Panasonic.- the classic look is the icing on top.
Timing is just right for Olympus.
I've been an Oly user for quiet some time, and I have accepted the compromises of (m)4/3. Some image quality for portability. Its just this time the sacrificed IQ is the smallest ever, since I used Oly cameras! I guess this is why FF and APSC users tempted to use OM-D as their daily camera or even ditched their bigger cameras all the way.
@bobbarder, yes, EVF is also one of the key factor.
Yup, Olympus E-M5 is the best camera in 2012 for 23.4% of respondents here. In the end, it is a poll, not a test, not a lab check, IQ check etc. It is a poll and the result is as it is.
1. Focus peaking, hopefully they add in the upcoming firmware.2. Grip, they opted to make it as compact as it can, rather than providing a bigger grip by default like in GH-3 for example.3. As they aimed E-M5 for more advanced users, they provied a wheather sealed and a bit rugged budy. Olympus will come with a lower spec and a higher spec OM-D series. I am very sure the lower spec will have much lighter body than E-M5.4. skin tone, I think is subject to personal preference. Skin tone will also be different result for white skin tone, yellow Asian skin tone, darker Asian skin tone, African skin tone. I admit Fuji has a good skin tone, but I find E-M5 skin tone results are not far behind also.5. as for EVF, agree that it doesn't have the res of Sony. For frame rate, we could use the faster frame rate mode.
I am not saying E-M5 is perfect as no camera is. Just saying that at the moment the balance that E-M5 has right now has drawn quiet a lot of interest from a lot of photographers.

Steven Rounds: The OM-D E-M5 wins my vote. I just got back from a trip to China, and had to shoot hand-held telephoto shots of the Xian terra cotta warriors with very low light levels (less than 5 foot-candles in some spots). The E-M5's exclusive 5-axis IBIS absolutely ROCKED, with sharp shots at 150mm (300mm equivalent), at a 1/8th second exposure. Here's a small, lightweight weather-sealed camera, with a $199 40-150mm zoom, that got me the sharp shots I needed for 16x20 blow-ups.
And I wasn't lugging a monster camera around all day. Both of the private guides I hired in China asked me for various shots to put up on their web sites...they both said the shots were the best they'd ever seen.
Do you have your shots of Terracota warriors on web? Can you share with us?
Wow, close race between Nikon D800 and Olympus OM-D E-M5
Revolutionary IBIS, Live Time and Live Bulb, major improvements of DR, low light performance, wheather sealed, compact size of body and lens system. Nuff said.
This thing looks like Olympus' E-P1 concept design, before they came out with the actual one.
It is clear that you mentioned you want the subject to be out of focus, not just blurry.
