    All taken with my Olympus E-PL1 and a Konica Hexanon 57mm f1.4 with either fstop f4 and f5.6 or f5.6 and f8

    For the first two picture, does it look better with the first one w/ no exp compensation or the second one with -0.3 EV?

    Nice captures. The butterfly is a Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui), probably the most widespread migratory butterfly in the world.

    A friend commented that at the f8, the bokeh doesn't look that nice. What do you guys think? I know at f2 and f2.8, the bokeh is gorgeous. Around the mid-range f-stop, do you think it's not as nice?
