    Olympus Photo Thread

    Everyone else has one, we need one too. Also, I want to post some things that aren't necessarily regular threads in the gallery.

    First, some rules.

    Rule 1. I give myself the authority to make rules.

    Rule 2. Pictures here may be cross posted, on occasion, in the appropriate photo gallery section, since there isn't too much traffic here.

    Rule 3. Pictures may demonstrate the superiority of the Olympus system, the photographer, or be fun but otherwise suck. Or anything in between.

    Ok, enough rules... GO!

    (I'll start off modestly, then the rest of you can show me how its done).

    Moonset over Lake Schmiddel in Desolation Wilderness. E-410, 18-180mm lens at 180mm. f/11, ISO100, 1/13s, rock tripod. Converted to B&W in PP, then contrast increased.

    E-410, 14-54mm lens.

    1. At 54mm 100% crop. I almost brought the super zoom, or at least the 40-150.

    2. An un-cropped panorama of a sunrise earlier that day.

    3. Um... standard shot down a ditch. It doesn't quite seem as good as it could have been. Any suggestions?

    Fun but suck :)

    Uh, yeah..

    Pick a better time of day when the light is better

    But, having said that, sometimes it's just a matter of being there, doing the best you can and learning from the experience...

    For me the borderline shots are a good excuse to get better at post processing. That's my story and I'm sticking to it

    Two examples, cross posted.

    Bad lighting and shooting south through a window, early morning. But hay, they were there and so was I..

    E-510, 14-54mm @ 50ish, f 3.5, 1/500, iso 100



    Late afternoon full sunlight on his back...

    E-510, OM 50mm f 1.4 @ 1.4, 1/2000, iso 100

    The most recent one is very good. I believe you have improved a lot from the first two, I think couch photography should be the new trend based on that.

    LOL...

    I like that idea

    Still a ways to go though, the lighting sucked and my photoshop skills need work...

    Cheers, Don

    PS. I call this "Goosed"..

    Wildlife beware! I'm gettin' the 70-300 on my doorstep tomorrow Just imagine what this chipmunk would look like extra-large... The 70-300 would increase his diagonal length by 80%! (compared to the 18-180)

    It'll take care to use the thing on the E-410 though, I'm already getting a number of unsteady shots with the 18-180. I'll have to keep my shutter speed at 1/1000s at all costs. My next purchase may be the upcoming small Olympus camera with improved dynamic range, large viewfinder, weather sealing and (naturally) IS. Unfortunately, that means I'll have to keep my day job...

    And another one, with the 14-42 kit lens, a few weeks ago. This irritating kid ran right through my waterfall picture! Which made it more interesting than the other ones... hmmm, may be I should digitally brighten the kid.
