For this month’s contest I thought a good theme would be Nature’s Gifts.
Rules for Participants:
o This is a fun contest with nothing to be won but bragging rights. Having said that, please read and follow the rules below to make it easier for everyone.
o The contest period is the current month. Entries can be made until approximately midnight on the last day of the month local time. Voting will extend until the third day of the following month. The winner will then be announced and be responsible for posting the new contest. If the new contest is not announced by the 7th of the month, responsibility for posting falls to the second place finisher. Keep it simple and post/vote early so we don't have to obsess over deadlines and time zones.
o Post a maximum of two entries, each in a separate post.
o As the purpose of this contest is to get people out and shooting, photos must be taken in the time-frame of this contest. Please note the date the photo was taken in your post.
o As a m43 community, we advocate the use of m43 cameras. However, since many of us shoot with multiple systems, we allow photos taken with any camera.
o Photos receive one point for each "like" (thumbs up) and two points for each "winner" (medal). The photo with the most points win with the contest. The tie-breaker is the larger number of "winner" votes.
Procedures for Winners/Contest Hosts:
o As a contest winner, you are responsible for posting/hosting the contest for the next month. This is easy and just requires several steps as outlined below.
o Select the theme for the next month. The theme should be accessible and relevant for everyone. Obscure and difficult themes limit participation. Avoid themes related to specific holidays, seasons, geography, etc. Suggested themes include: B&W, Portrait, OOC jpeg, Close Up, Self Portrait, Transportation, Minimalist, Architecture, Long Exposure, Art Filter, Motion, Specific Focal Length, Liquid, Reflections,...
I have noticed that there are quite a few threads where Motorsports Action images are posted with several members posting images regularly
I thought it would be great to have a dedicated thread for Motorsports for those who want to share, advise or seek advice
I will start the thread off shortly with one or two of my own Moto GP images some of which have been posted before but which I have processed slightly
I last went to the British GP in 2014 but have Grandstand tickets for 2016 so will be seeking to add more images later this year
I will be seeking to go to other events aswell this year including at least one British Touring Car Championship and perhaps a World Superbike Event - family commitments permitting so I hope to populate the thread with a few entries of my own through the year
Looking forward to seeing images from other members - keep em coming please
All images are jpegs taken with Olympus EM10 + Panasonic 100-300mm
I'm currently in Portland visiting. I grew up here and while many things have changed, other aspects have stayed the same! Anyways, I couldn't visit the city without giving my cameras a workout! Shot everything with my dual E-M5 II bodies, 8mm 1.8 fisheye, 17mm 1.8 and 75mm 1.8 lenses!
It's been a long time since I posted anything here. Been busy with a job change and just not on the forums as much lately. But, I finally finished processing my pics, and thought I'd share them here.
I used the EM1 for most of my pics (also had my iPhone 5s and a Panasonic LF1 for days/times when I didn't want to bring the EM1/lenses), and primarily used the 12-40mm 2.8 and the Panny 7-14. This combo worked out great. Lightweight, and covered just about every photo opportunity I came across. Really happy with the results.
This was our first trip to Italy (Europe, really), and we were travelling with two of my wife's sisters and their husbands. It was a fantastic trip. We visited Sorrento, Capri, Rome, Cinque Terre, Luca and Venice. I'd go back in a heartbeat. The food, wine, sights and people were all incredible.
On to the pics...
First off, a few from Sorento and Capri:
We also spent a day exploring Pompeii. Incredible to walk around the ruins, and think about what happened there:
From there, we traveled North to spend a few days in Rome. What an awesome city! So much history everywhere you turned:
