    Haven't posted much in a while and don't take many pictures either. This is a few pics that was taken during visits to LA and SFO and some places in between and has been sitting on my computer for some time. Always wanted to go back and do a better editing, but never got to do that. So, I might as well share what I have now as I don't think I will ever get to these again to do a better edit :)
    All with Olympus OM-D E-M5
    Sharing as a separate thread to not clog any existing thread and hope that is fine.

    The camera is only part of the equation. I like the way you see things. :thumbup::thumbup:

    I love your photographs, however to me looking at them on my calibrated monitor they looked pretty "cooked" as in over sharpened and colours over pumped. The colour thing a personal preference and I do like the vibrance. One question, my wife is a bridge fanatic and she REALLY wants to know where that long span near the ocean is.

    I think you might be referring to Bixby Bridge in Big Sur, C.A.

    Thanks Eric Rose. I did not process this on a calibrated monitor. So, you may be probably seeing more vibrance than I do, but I do agree that I tend to bring more vibrance and probably overdo it.

    I think you are right on point about sharpening. Unfortunately, flickr (where these images are hosted) does something to the image that makes it even more sharper than it really is. So, the original images on my hard drive does not look over sharpened at all. I knew that Flickr does this, but did not realize that it is this bad and I was disappointed myself after I uploaded to flickr. I should have reduced the sharpness a bit to counter what flickr does, but these were edited a while back and I did not get the time to re-do all of the images now.

    And that bridge is Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur California. It is on Route 1 between San Francisco and LA. Not many bridges along Route 1 , but if you like long drives along the ocean side with Mountains on other side, highly recommend this scenic route. (if you have plans to visit)

    Thanks for the location info. My wife will now be bugging me to get down there. To bad flickr messes with your images so much. That's one reason why I host my own stuff. Calibration tools are really cheap these days or maybe you have a buddy who has one you can borrow. Your photos are stunning, they deserve the best.
