On article Hands-on with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 (215 comments in total)

That's not fair! When one peforms the test shoot in Amsterdam, all camera's look better. :-)
Now more serious: this looks like the camera I have been waiting for. As I understand the EVF can project a histogram in the viewfinder so one is able to adjust the exposure interactively before taking the picture, a feature I used very often on my Minolta D7, and which I dearly miss on the E330 which I currently own.
For a year or so, I thought Olympus was fading out of existence because they did not seem to be committed to high end cameras. But luckily, they are 'back', with a camera that is a sensbile step forward (yes, I do think that mirrorless cameras are the future for high end photography). And it seems that Panasonic is finally able to get better high ASA performance out of their chips, so I hope that my saving money, and the inevitable drop in street prices will meet each other in the near future.

Good moment with the smoke and the light; the framing is not really good, with the head under the middle line and the wide black depth behind the singer

Also 'just' a good picture; not that i went 'wow', but I kept looking at it somewhat longer, and I think that is a sign of a basically good picture.

Interesting with the light, 'it is doing something'; only a bit too harsh on the light -- it is almost painful for the eyes, so for me just over the top of the backlight effect.

On photo Solomon Burke in the Concert Photography challenge (1 comment in total)

Right moment, no disturbing musicians in the background, so really about Solomon Burke, but also a bit predictable: just a good picture (and now i am a bitch: for me it stood out among the crowd in this challenge ...)

good picture, expressing the concentration while playing. I would have either closed in more on the face, so less trumpet, or zoomed out a bit and reveiled more of the trumpet.

Very nice image, good to get so close at the music. For some reason, I am a bit distracted by the sharp instrument which renders the player as background: his expression tells more about music and a concert than the instrument he is using.

Music is top sport, as everyone can see and feel from this picture

Nice moment, with the eyes, the mouth and the hand making music. Unfortunate that the mice ended up crystal clear

Nice with the expression on the face all clear. A shame of the border around it.

How do I know he is not singing Mozart or Mauricio Kagel?

I always like to get into the details, so good you did so too; this picture could have been much more interesting if the guitar basically followed the diagonal of the frame. The composition lacks tension
