These are excellent! I especially like the #3 and #5. #3 has an appealing central composition with nice geometry provided by the reflections, and #5 is just a very effective capture of the full cityscape.
This is also a good use of the forum's attachment system, which is perfect for showing a series of images without creating a huge page to scroll.
Another great example of why the rules are just guidelines. The central composition is what makes this strong for me, and my eye went right to the thumbnail for that reason.For #3, I really did not want to put the tall building in the center. This sort of goes against the rule of thirds...
What you're seeing is aliasing. Panasonic uses a weak anti-aliasing filter, which gives their cameras the ability to capture very fine detail, sometimes referred to as "per pixel sharpness", but the tradeoff is more aliasing. Olympus uses a bit stronger filter, for a touch less detail but probably a touch less tendency for aliasing effects. The reason I say probably is that I haven't personally seen a rigorous test for aliasing, and AA filters can be of high or low quality, not just strong or weak.I realize you did not mention #2, but take a look at the Modis building. The sun was reflecting off the glass, but when I took the picture, the camera did some wierdness(black areas on the glass). In the full sized version of this picture, there are black areas and rainbow looking areas. I'm not sure if this is a jpeg issue or just an issue with how the CCD handles these sorts of reflections. Then, when I scaled the image for post, it made it even worse.
Really nice. I like the first one the best, however.All taken with the EP2 and an Olympus OM 100mm 2.8. Handheld, within a few minutes of each other. Obviously three are using Art Filters. The first shot in RAW, converted in LR.
Very happy with these older manual focus lenses. Especially since the EVF on the EP2 makes manual focusing (at least for me) much easier than I was doing with the EP1.
Comments welcome, thanks for looking,
