    You just say you can pick them out easily because of the logo in the corner, isn't it? In all seriousness though, I really do appreciate the compliment, especially coming from you, good sir.

    Ruby Mountains

    A few landscape pictures from the same trip as those in the wildlife thread I just posted. E-410, 18-180mm lens. Minimal, if any, processing done in Irfanview.

    1. I think in the future I will focus on the flowers.
    2. Island Lake
    3. A typical mountain shot.
    4. This one came out pretty good.

    Lovely photos. Don't stress over the foreground flower. However - if you need that also in focus it's a depth of field issue - I am not sure if the Oly has a DOF preview - but you need a fairly small apperture F8 or smaller
    Manual focus would help - focus 1/3rd into the photo - DOF is 1/3rd behind and 2/3rds in front - range depending on the apperture

    Thanks Geoff. As far as I know there is no depth of preview button, but that one was actually at f/8.

    Thanks also Turo.

    What a beautiful spot, Raven! Like you, I am often looking for a subject to put in front of the beautiful background I see. In this shot I actually used f/11, but I was at the minimum focus distance for the lens, so I still got a shallow DOF. If you're that close to the subject, it doesn't matter how far you stop down, you still won't be able to get the whole frame in focus. f/22 or 29 would help somewhat, but then you get some blur from diffraction. Geoff's focus technique works well as long as you're not super-close to the subject.

    I like the blurred-mountain effect anyway though. And your blurred flower is nice too!

    Toriaj- I saw! I looked at your picture about 2 days before I took mine, I think that was what made me think of it. Notice the similarities. Yours looks very nice.

    F8 is often around the sweet spot with a lot of lenses. That shot looks great anyway - as do the others.
    You could try manual focusing sometimes to see how far back you can focus before the horizon looks too blurred - if you are at F8 or above you can pull it back a little more. It is possible otherwise to 'waist' depth of field if you focus (say) at near infinity.
    Just trying to be helpfull

    You have a DOF preview, but you could always just take a test picture too. I would focus on the flower and stop down to f/16 or so. Then raise ISO or use a tripod.
