    All the pictures are taken with Olympus E-M5 and either Oly 12-40mm f/2.8 or Panasonic 100-300mm f/4-5.6. There may be one or two macro shots taken with Oly 60mm but I if I had to guess, I'd say all the macros here are with the 12-40mm. All the exif-data etc. can be found by clicking on picture.

    The full Malaga-album - which contains more pictures - can be found here: https:[email protected]/sets/72157647325512343/


    This is a very image heavy thread so be prepared... :biggrin: I'll do this in parts and here's the first batch:

    Really good pictures, but the first cave picture was a showstopper. I just keep going back to it. Looks like a great vacation.

    The only regret I had with this trip or some of these photos was that I didn't have the new Oly 40-150mm f/2.8 yet. Some of the animal photos would have been better but I do have to admit that the Panasonic 100-300mm is a superb lens and (surprisingly) sharp even at 300mm. :love:

    And even though I had the Oly 60mm macro lens with me I only took less than a dozen macro pictures with it and prefered to shoot with the 12-40mm. That zoom just is so damn good in everything it does. :biggrin:

    I really appreciate the technical quality of your images, e.g., sharpness, excellent exposure and composition. It's exactly the qualities that others will attribute to the camera but those of us with good equipment know lies in the photographer. I especially like the animal shots. The red river hog is a stunner.

    Great set! I also enjoyed the animal shots. Nice scenery as well. Between #1 and #2, I much prefer #1... even though you can see more shadow detail in #2, I would have left that out.

    Yeah, I couldn't decide on the #1 and #2 but I'd also leave the second out if I had to choose now. And thank you all for the nice comments :smile:

    Fantastic shots - and so sharp. I looked at one on flickr for the flower in the first post which said 1/20s - was this on a tripod? (I haven't mastered shooting my em1 that low yet, handheld. )

    Thank you. No, I didn't use a tripod - it's just the amazing IBIS in action. :2thumbs:
    I usually take a burst of 2-4 images when doing long exposure without tripod and delete the worst/shaky ones.

    A very nice set from the part of the world I am lucky enough to live in. I suppose it is the beach resorts that bring most visitors to the Costa del Sol but there is so much variety beyond that, as your photos show.

    I used to enjoy the "beach holidays" but nowadays I want to do and see more. We only had a few short walks on beaches but didn't go swimming at all (way too cold). Renting the car for two weeks was the right choice and I was surprised to see such beautiful landscapes almost everywhere. I'm pretty sure we will come back to Spain someday. Really lovely country.
