Wings are beautiful, indeed as are butterflies….from a distance. But close up their heads and probosces are not attractive:
Amazing images! Just stunning!
Love my compact EM-5. Shoots a variety of subjects just fine:
Alpha Whiskey Photography: Love my EM5. Waterfalls, night shots, wildlife. Shot everything with it. Who wants my FX DSLR? ;)
Thanks! Shot the hell out of it in just a couple of months! :)

So this is how and why camera makers can keep making money out of people. Over 2100 comments about a piece of gear and only a few dozen or so comments on posts to do with actual photography! :P
Most people care more about the gadget than the art. Must be human nature or something.
"Give a man a piano and he has a piano. But give a man a camera and suddenly he's photographer."
(and let the vitriol begin)
Puts my wildlife photos to shame :)
I was curious about this camera when I heard it announced, but the IBIS and LIVE TIME functions on the Olympus EM5 are so useful to me that I don't regret my purchase. Having captured a variety of subjects with m4/3, I think this format is just great. My FX Nikon is a paperweight.
Stunning photos. I think for the last one, he may have intended the title to be "Slip the SURLY bonds of Earth..." by John Gillespie Magee, used by Peggy Noonan to write a speech for President Reagan to describe the fate of the Challenger Shuttle crew in 1986. "Slipped the surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God."
Amazing photo nonetheless. :)
I like both images. Equally striking. Hope the girl (now woman) is doing well.
My 3 year old Nokia N8 still takes excellent photos and seems to be perfectly capable to me. Image quality is perhaps also defined by the creativity of the user... :)
Alpha Whiskey Photography: My food looks more appetising and is certainly healthier than this.
My original comment didn't criticise this work (although you seem to be her defence attorney here:)). And in my blog post, which isn't for marketing either, I state quite clearly that my food photos are a first for me, so your observation about 'freshness' is actually spot on. I just don't find the food in this set particularly inviting or appealing. The artistic merit of the photography is a matter of personal taste. I would be interested to see if you had photos of your own that you could dare to share with us, since you seem to offer a lot of critique across many articles on this site :) Cheers.
Thank you CG33 :)
Thank you Ferling! Appreciate that a lot! :)
Thank you! :)

I get along fine with my humble 12MP N8.
Alpha Whiskey Photography: I'm very happy with the 35mm F/2 AF-D and the 50mm F/1.8G on my D600.
I found that of the 50mm's, including the older F/1.4 AF-D, the F/1.8 was sharper at its widest aperture and sharper at F/1.8 than the others. Hence my choice of the F/1.8. And yes, I really enjoy using the 35mm F/2 as well. :)

Agree. The watermarks are the only thing I see. Major distraction.
