    Just came back from a quick trip to Rwanda and Uganda. Main goal was to see gorillas in the wild. I really enjoyed the trip, although with the gorillas I soon realized that I would not take good pictures and just decided to put the camera in the bag and enjoy the experience. The forest was to dense and it was almost impossible to get a clean picture. I guess is more a matter of luck and where you find the group of gorillas you have been assigned to. All pictures taken with GX8 apart from two of them with GX800 (the forest picture and the landscape) and one with iphone (guys on bike grabbed to the truck). Processed in lightroom.

    A wonderful set, I particularly like the canoe pic (there's something about formal dress in a dugout), the boy looking back and the casual way the guy is sat side-saddle on the crossbar of his bike made me smile, also the group shot of the man and boys walking towards the camera is wonderfully processed IMHO.

    Thank you everyone :) 
     
  11. Really awesome shots.

    I'm a bit puzzled by the shutter speed ISO on some of those - how did combinations like 1/12800s ISO 1600 and 1/4000s ISO 800 occur?

    I have the camera usually in aperture mode and I set ISO depending on shutter speeds and subject. And..sometimes I just grab the camera with the last settings not to miss the shot, and if the scene in brighter I get those combinations of ISO and shutter speed. Not on purpose... :)

    That 75mm set it self apart.. I'm always on the edge about selling mine but stuff like this makes me want to keep it. Well done I really like the processing too.

    The 75mm is one of those lenses I almost never use but I never think about selling either. Every time I use it, I am very satisfied. I wish I would do more portraits to use it more

    Lovely shots! I agree with comments on the O75.
    That is such a characterful lens, love to get one, one day
