Featured: 'Where Do Christmas Trees Come From?' by JNB

(Part 1 of 2)

Well, at least some of them come from Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, Canada, where the Balsam Fir is the tree of choice. A couple of friends and I were invited to a local Christmas tree farm to have a look. Up the lonesome road we went, looking for the crew...

We found some of them cutting, hauling, baling and stacking....

Hi all,

I went to Guyana a couple years ago for conservation research and have yet to share these.
They were all taken with an E-M5 with the 12-50mm or 40-150mm lenses.

Featured:'Bangkok Cityscape'

Hi all, sharing some cityscape shots during a recent trip to Bangkok. Not a lot of photos as it was a short trip.
All taken with E-M5.

Temple of Dawn
Wat Arun
Visited a bar just to take this shot. Tripod is not allowed at the bar. Fortunately, they allowed me to use a clamp and I managed to catch a uniform light trail of a cruise ship passing by.

Sky View
Taken from the sky bar at Lebua at State Tower. The rare sunset I managed to shoot as it was raining almost every single day.

Highway Spin
Ratchaprarop Tower Mansion
One of the vantage points in Bangkok. I had to pay 1500 THB (46USD) to go to the rooftop just to shoot this image. A great view to shoot but I doubt I will come back again in future. Shooting at Lebua Sky Bar is cheaper as I only need to pay for a drink to shoot at the bar.

This shot also shows a gap in m43 lens for me. A 7mm-8mm that can take ND filter. I was not able to achieve the light trail I wanted due to the lack of filter. I know there are DIY options available but I really wish someone can fill that gap.

Featured: 'Micro Four Thirds for Cyclocross - my journey from full frame (pic heavy)' by ean10775

Nov 04, 2014 - 11:09 AM - by ean10775
This cyclocross or 'CX' season marks my first without a full frame DLSR, having divested my Canon gear in favor of something lighter and easier to carry on the course. I struggled with this decision, seeing as an equivalent setup for my uses was not available with the m43 system at the time.

Unlike many who favor a zoom for shooting sports, in the past couple years I have shot local and professional races exclusively with a Canon 5D Mark II and EF 200mm f2.8 lens:
