Shalom Erez.You posted a very interesting post here and accompanied by wonderful photographs.However, please allow me to write some comments that may be a little different from your post .Every photographer can definitely shoot impressive landscapes and nature ,minute drive away or walk away from her\his home and no matter where in the world they live.Most of the people go through every day by the wonderful views and are not usually see the real beauty in that offer them in the near area.For example, most of my more well-known photos were taken at distances of less than 50 kilometers from home. Furthermore, 20-minute drive from my house i shot a photo that won the first place in " Teva mecomi" competition and introduced over several months in Eretz Israel Museum.No need to be a "combat" photographer with endless injuries to bring your audience to great photos.....The beauty is in the eyes of the watcher.Rak TovAri Baltinester
A week ago I got the camera with lens 14-150 (28-300 in 35mm). I did with it a number of test shots at a music show and appearance of the Azrieli Towers at night while using the adapter and the pro line lenses of the Olympus l set the camera to 12 500 ASA and 6400 ASA. I was just shocked with the results!! Night photo of the Azrieli Towers was purchased by a customer in a day from abroad 1 day after I published it . Photographs were taken at shuter speed of approximately 1/15 and 1/25 in hand and were quite sharp thanks to the wonderful stabilizer Here I could hardly see it thanks to Olympus's new processor. I invite you all to visit and view the results. http://arik-baltinester.artistwebsites.com/The 14-150 lens also produced wonderful results .Two days ago I shot an event at the university while I was using this lens and sensitivity 1200 ASA and without flash And here too, I and more importantly the client was very pleased with the results.
Have a lovely weekend.Arik
