A very big range of subjects and photos.

There are so many that it is hard to start with giving C&C.

I can just say that you confirmed my desire to go there.

Asking for C&C works better (at least more convenient) if you show less photos and/or have specific questions about them.

Why not try to enter one shot in the weekly threads.

The Weekly Wed C&C thread is a good place to start : very friendly and constructive crowd.

Re: Photos in the Himalayas taken with the OMD EM-5

Very nice, indeed. Judging from the various focal lengths used, I'm guessing the 12-50 and 75-300 M. Zuikos were your two lenses of choice?

Re: Photos in the Himalayas taken with the OMD EM-5

Couldn't help but notice that many of the shots were taken at small apertures.  Look great though.

Maybe its my bad technique but I tend to shoot everything wide open or some time stop it down at the most to f/4 or f/5.6 when I need more DoF/sharpness.  Are the lenses you used really good at f/8 to f/22 as seen from some of your shots?  (Macro of the flowers excepted).

Taken in Kashmir. Started with photos in Srinagar on the Dal Lake and went on to the Zanskar Valley which separated from the Ladakh region by the Zanskar Range.

Used the small apertures as I wanted depth of field. Right from the foreground to the mountains in the rear. Very happy with small apertures.

To the OP:  Love your pictures of people; the grimacing ones might be converted to B&W for even more impact.  Some of your distant mountain scenes seem repetitive; you might select the best one out of several views of each scene.  In general, I think your scenics need some foreground element(s) to anchor them.  Nonetheless, wish I were there!
