*** This Week Through YOUR m4/3 2014.04.19 ***
Is it level? I had the function on in the EVF and it was according to that. I always use it. However, the picture plays tricks on your eyes and I admit that. I'm going to play with it to see if I can solve that issue.
Sorry, I misunderstood you initially having not scrolled sufficiently on my your iPhone.
This summer palace built by the Duke of Modena in Sassuolo Italy during its slow decline at one point was used as a salami factory.
It is now being slowly restored to its former glory.

Those shots remind me of the Vatican.

It is now level to the eye. Thanks for your levelheadedness!
Wonderful set of pictures from what must have been a really difficult assignment.
I work in the construction industry so I know how difficult it is to get good shots "on site".

My favourite this week...
I did all the shots in this post at the Tate last Sunday, inside and outside. I only took abou 8/10 photos of people but when I put them up on the computer I was struck by the degree to which the images were composed around strong geometrical elements. It was unconscious and interesting to realise.
I like the first two the most, although I think both have distractions on the edges. The first has people truncated on the left and right sides, although there really isn't anything to be done about this as it's real life and not a staged photo. The thin oof right edge of the second photo is a bit jarring. I think it would be preferable to have more of the frame in the shot or out completely.
Thanks Michael. It's an interesting comment - particularly re the shot of the woman. Your suggestion was the most obvious crop and the first thing I tried (see below) but I liked the version above better because I think it adds a bit of transition & mystery to the shot. I felt that otherwise it just looks like I've cut her off in the wrong place. I think it has been one of my struggles to move away from absolute 'neatness' in an image to something that allows for more interpretation. A year or two ago I would have just binned this shot.

Keep on exploiting. Great shots.
Nothing too great this week. Light was really harsh on my walks.
In this series, though, you seem to be stuck with your center of interest pretty much slap bang in the middle of the frame. I wonder whether you were nailed by your focus point?
If you had beren using the GM1, of course, you could have composed then just tapped the screen where the pheasant was to set the focus point.
I have to say, it was kind of hard to think of compositional elements while chasing a fast moving critter down the road and simultaneously trying to hold the 100-300mm stable enough to get anything other than a fuzzy mess of a shot .
In this case, the bulk and grip of the EM1 were essential....I would have really had a hard time hanging on to the GM1 with the 100-300mm while sailing down the street after this guy!
- This allows people to continue to post comments about existing pics here in Part 1
- It will prevents the tail-enders on Part 1 getting no comments at all.
- Feel free to continue to post comments and replies to Part 1 BUT...
- Now Part 2 has been launched, post all new photographs to that.
Rhino is my favouirite owing to colour and skin contrast. I hope you enjoy your Pan 45-200 as much as I do. Have posted some taken with it further down myself, but mostly cropped and taken from far away without tripod.
Please look at these first (preferably full size) and consider your impression. Then read the caption for specific concerns I'd like you to consider. Full disclosure; One isn't m43 but I want to read your thoughts. Other comments welcome, as well, of course. Thanks.
a) As small as the buildings are, it seems ok and wouldn't really matter, I think. But to me they have to be there. Without them it would be one of a thousand sunsets.
b) Similar. A waterfall is a waterfall unless there is sth. special about it. Without the lower half, there wouldn't, I think. Lower half alone? Can't imagine.Simply seeing a nice kind of rainbow on green grass would not do it for me. It is good the way it is. Just my opinion.
m43 or not? I have one (uncropped) in this week's posting of mine which is taken with LX7. If it wasn't for the exif data, who would notice?
So I think both are fine.
