    My new website just went live. It is dedicated to the m43 format. All the pics, only a few now, are taken with my Olympus cameras: OM-D and E-PL5.

    Website- Vic's m43rd Pics

    My Flickr page is up and running too- Flickr: Vic's m43rds Pics' Photostream

    More pics on the way as it has been only a couple of months that I have been shooting m43.

    Check them out if you have a chance.

    you obviously have an interesting landscape to shoot in... you need to work a little more on the composition side..... and please please stay away from HDR... it does you no favours

    I can't believe I'm defending this, my sometimes HDR is supposed to be over-the-top. I rather like one of the HDR pictures ("Factory Office"). I also concur with most people that a light touch is usually preferable, but there are many techniques people use (i.e., shooting in B&W) that are not designed to replicate the original color palette but create an interpretation of it. So an occasional 'over the top" HDR picture has its place.

    I like your B&Ws. My favorite is the first one with the evergreens. Good luck with your new web page.

    Vic,

    I'm not a real big fan of HDR but I like a lot of your pics, especially with the colored textures. Thanks for sharing!

    My site is not a forum just somewhere to put my pics. People seem to enjoy them on my FB page. I know for some reason HDR is polarizing with some. It is brand new to me so I am just beginning to learn about it.

    I appreciate the input and will try to tone it down.:smile:

    Thanks. New to HDR so still working on bracketing and how many photos to batch etc. Lots to learn with photography!

    The great thing about photography is that there is always something to learn. I love a challenge and will continue to work on it.:smile:

    Thanks. Last year was tough for me not only health wise but photography wise. I carried two D700's and all the lenses and flashes etc to about ten weddings, mostly second shooting. I had some money and went to my local photo store and instead of buying another lens I bought the OM-D. Things haven't been the same since.

    I guess I am experiencing a revival of sorts. There is something about the Olympus cameras and this format that I love. Having a blast and experimenting and learning, thus the HDR.

    I really started using it because I felt the shots of the abandoned factory, shot with the body cap lens, needed something to spice them up. After that, I kept experimenting.

    Lots to learn but loving it. Thanks again to everyone for their input.:wink:

    I have attached my favorite from that shoot. Don't mean to offend those that are not HDR fans.:biggrin:

    noooooooh...please no.....you might as well paint elvis on velvet

    I have nothing against the principle of HDR....its just all these people who turn all the sliders up to 11 and think its 'nice' or 'unique'

    its awful....spawn of the devil

    OK.. off to bed..

    I am winding you up for dramatic effect... but I do really hate HDR

    :)

    Sleep well, don't let the green, yellow, purple and fully-developed-shadows/undertones of the bed bugs bite.
