Re: Got to be this one

Thank you for the kind words on my photos. My camera arrived yesterday but with work during daylight hours I haven't had a chance to put it through its paces. I like the feel of it and the weight/size ratio. I am awaiting the 70-300 oly lens (should arrive tomorrow) and then, weather permitting, I am going to have some fun.

Its been so long since I've been a regular forum contributer here that I need to brush up on the rules, but if I get any photos worth of posting, I will post them somewhere. I am really looking forward to using this thing. Thanks for your photos which are inspiring me!

Re: OK, slightly enhanced goat

Buy a stuffed one. A friend of mine once won a photo competition with a dead mouse. They are much more cooperative like that.

2 to 1; New version with a slightly enhanced goat. If I lift it much more

it looks out of balance, and is a distraction from the colors in the sky and lakes.

I need to go back and find a cleaner goat.

Thanks for the input.

Lovely shot, and I absolutely take your point, but I'd still perk up the goat

Hi Geoff,

I can see your point, but although what I like about the photo is the position of the
goat, I don't see it as the focal point.

I am partial to photographs that show a little bit more to the person who takes the
time to look closely. That sounds pretentious.

Anyway, it's a landscape (with a goat).

Re: OK, slightly enhanced goat

I love this one because it was taken at the end of a tiring hike, when a thought came to my mind.. 'If only a boat can take me home right now'

I'm proud of this photo because I think it's beautiful and it was recently published in a big beautiful glossy magazine. Inland Empire Magazine December 2011 issue.

Re: Beautiful, Gravi. It has universal appeal, I think ...

Thank you for your kind words!

Are you familiar with W. Eugene Smith's stunning pic "A Walk to Paradise Garden" -- his two daughters; one of the first photos he took after surviving serious war wounds in WW II?

I was not aware, between work and three young children, I do not have much time to educate myself...

http://www.photo-seminars.com/Fame/eugesmith.htm and scroll down a bit.

That's one of my favorite photos of all time. I've tried to emulste it, but never succeeded. I think you have -- I have to say your simple picture is similarly evocative, I think. Subject, composition and color -- that slightly washed out color. Wonderful work.

Again, thank you very much!

Cheers, geoff

Re: Proud to break out of usual habits
  1. 1 is a very precise shot, #2 shows a great "compromise" composition.

Oh, Kimmie, that's just outstanding.

The beautiful water effects and great colors you have captured in an ecellent composition. 200mm the EXIF says. Which lens?

Cheers, geoff

Re: Post an M43 photo you are proud of and tell us why.

I love street photography.

Yesterday, I recieved the EPL-2. Although I primarily shoot Nikon, I missed the fun factor, which I previously experienced with Olympus.

After I received the camera, my wife and I went out to lunch to our favorite french bistro in Palm Desert on El Paseo. It is a little pricey for lunch, but the food is great (shrimp crepes with saffron rice). My wife hates when I take candid shots of people, but I could not help myself. The camera was on the table and my wife was talking (as usual) and not paying attention. I turned the camera on and left it resting on the table. I had it set in dramatic tone (love this) and took this photograph.

Incidentally, if you come to Palm Desert (15 miles east of Palm Springs) the place is Cafe de Artiste (or something like that).

Using the dramatic tone is like eating peanuts. I just cannot quit. Here are a few more:

This shot is a good representation on why I just decided against adding the XZ-1. All XZ-1 dramatic tone shots are utter mush, that I've seen. M43 pulls it off nicely.

Proud for Two Reasons

In honesty, I have quite a few m4/3 images I'm proud of, but this one a little more so for two reasons... I enjoyed how it turned out, and I also sold a print of it!

Downtown Philly

I'm proud of this as it took some ingenuity to setup. I was at a customer site without a monopod or tripod. I was in their lunch room on the 8th floor. I needed something to set the camera on that raised it high enough to get the lens above the wood on the bottom of the window. Also used the timer, as I did not want to shake the camera when the shutter release went off. It isn't perfect, but I like how it turned out.
