    Pretty bokeh. I like the second one just for the blurred background! You could crop out the tree and I would still like the picture. It's like a painting:)

    Hi Kevin,
    tell me what is your secret to focus because I never manage to make it sharp!
    Regards

    you are asking me to remember way back with this question... all the shots were taken with my old E-510 DSLR, so focus would have been through the optical VF, with the exception of the guy sitting, which I think I did using the lcd.

    maybe it was a combination of luck and a reasonably high shutter speed

    I must dig that lens out and try it on my OMD

    cheers
