    Believe it or not, I did use a CP in 3/5 or 4/5 of those shots, which is how the sand got it's nice color. As for the sky... Inner Mongolia is still China. China is All Time World Haze Champion. They can haze up a sky 10,000 miles away, and this is only like 100 miles from any factories. You are seeing Genuine Chinese Pollution (tm).

    It actually was not hot, the latitude is pretty far north (well, sorta...), the elevation is high, and it rained the day before.

    Out shooting butterflies with the 50-200 for 1/2 an hour today. Focus on this one was not the best, but the bokeh hit just right. I cropped it to make the nost of the diagonal lines.

    Nice composition and good exposure, plus that is brilliant bokeh for the 50-200mm!

    New to me E-3 arrived today

    By the time I arrived home it was late in the day and overcast but I had to shoot something.....

    This cowbird is no longer being fed by its adoptive sparrow parent and it's spending a lot of time on my feeder..

    200mm, 1/60, f 4.5, iso 800, no noise adjustments.



    Cheers, Don

    Congratulations Don looks like we can expect lots of posts soon. Might make capturing those hummers a bit easier too.
    I suspect I can guess but what made you go for the E3 and not wait to see what Oly brings out next? from the rumours it wont be long before they anounce something.

    If I could justify buying the E-? I would wait until it'd been out for at least six months.

    As it is, I lost my mind, purchased the E-3 and I'm hoping to sell my two E-510's to partially pay for it

    Looks like I'll have to wait till next season to try it on the hummers though, sigh...

    We've already had an early frost and I've only seen one hummer in the last two days.

    Cheers, Don

    The cowbird was on the feeder again this morning, I think he actually spent the night

    Anywho, second morning with the E-3, an hour after sunrise and wanted to test iso 3200.

    Camera noise filter to high, some minor lighting/contrast/sharpening.



    Then 40% and +1 sharpen in Noiseware and blur the background further in Elements 7.



    Now if he would only have stuck around long enough to take the same shot with the E-30

    Don for me it would be nice to see a comparison between all three of the Oly cameras you've now got. Just curious to see in the real world how they compare.

    Don,

    Glad you are enjoying the E-3. I am holding out to see what Olympus announces this month. I am hoping it is in the sub $1k price range so I might consider it. At least if it does a good job at ISO 800, bumps the dynamic range up ~1 stop and maybe offers better AF tracking. Meanwhile I will keep plugging away with the E520 and really hope for a 24-30mm (effective) T/S lens for under $3000.

    Out at the nature center yesterday and saw these little purple flowers.
