  • Hi guys I posted this thread on the M4/3 forum yesterday and have some useful feedback so far. However, I am keen to get to learn as much as I can about using this lovely little lens, and have had ...
  • Roel, this is really interesting. I was in two minds as to whether to say anything, but now I'm glad I did as I feel I've been educated a bit in terms of composition and colours and looking for a ...
  • Thank you! :) I'll bear that in mind next time. I kept the shutter speed high as it was quite breezy and I was finding it hard to get anything to stay still! I'll have a look at that - although my ...
  • Thanks - yes, I loved the way the colours worked out with this one. I had huge problems getting the whole spider in focus though. No matter what shutter speed I used, or what aperture setting, the ...
  • Thanks both of you. Yeah, the depth of field feels like a really tricky one to get right with this lens. Lots of fun practising though! Any more thoughts on these? I welcome any comments, good and ...
  • Hi all, I recently bought the Oly 60 mm macro lens and I'm slowly getting addicted. Before I get much further and any bad habits I'm developing get stuck, I'd really love some feedback on how I'm ...
  • Replied in Zin
    I did take a bit off the top - just so it wasn't too weird a shape - but I didn't want to miss out on too much sky! I might tinker with it a bit more though and see what it would look like closer ...
  • Replied in Zin
    OK, I've tried to do the things you suggested. How's this? Liz
  • Sorry but I don't really get this. I don't know if I'm missing something, as others have described this as a highly skilled and composed shot with quite deep analysis of what's going on. I'd love ...
  • Taken this morning, this is the kind of photo that when I post it on Facebook, my friends go crazy over. I'm sure you guys will be far more critical! Bear in mind, it was early and I was outside ...
  • I really like the simplicity of this shot. I like the way all the lines - from the shadow, the mown lawn and the wispy clouds - complement each other. Now if you could have just got the tree to ...
  • Replied in Laura Cole
    I also prefer the full length shot. I don't really like the 'gritty' look on the close crop. Just looks noisy and I don't think it adds anything - but the first one is a fantastic shot. You can ...
  • I'm with Roel. I think this is a brilliant photo - but without the explanation, I wouldn't know what it was (I think I would have guessed that the child was ill or something) The knowledge of the ...
  • Thanks Roel and Zin. I really appreciate your comments. Just to super-cheat and add a third photo, what about this one - taken from a few steps away from the others (and messing around with the ...
  • Replied in Morning Outing
    Bit of a cheat as I'm posting two photos. Hope that's OK! I was really interested to know which (if either) has more appeal. Both taken from the same spot during morning walkies on a glorious day. ...
  • Love the composition and the moody sky. Just a tad dark for my liking. Great mood though! Liz
  • Two in the Ex. Really hope to come up with some good ideas for the comp. If it had been last month, there were some cracking swimwear photo ops on the beach! Most folk have gone home now but I'll ...
  • 17 mm  F 1.8 lens might be useful. Took these with it from a boat in Norway last winter. Have a brilliant trip - and hope you get to see the Northern Lights! Liz
  • Peter, that brought a tear to my eye. What a sad loss, but what a lovely, handsome chap. Seems like he had a wonderful life with you and has been well loved. What else could any of us want? Liz
  • Phew. One in the comp. It's a bit of a cheat, but was keen to get back on board as I've not been around much over the summer so missed the last couple of challenges. i'll try to find a couple more ...
