    Hi, I'm new to these forums and relatively new to my Olympus OMD. Any tips for improvements? Particularly in editing - I use picassa.

    Nice work! I'm from TO as well. What lenses are you using here?

    Thanks! I used the Samyang fisheye 7.5mm for the wide angle shots, panasonic 45-200mm for the baseball shot, and the olympus 45mm prime for the street shots.

    Sweet! I have yet to try the Samyang yet. How do you like it?

    And as for the baseball shot, were you shooting at the 45mm range? Even if that's the case, it looks a lot wider than it really was but I guess you guys were all the way back.

    Nice shots and editing, i'm not a fan of how dark the baseball and street shot is, some people are completely blacked out.

    But the photo and composition is good!

    I loved in TO for many years, and I really appreciate your images. I also like the looks you chose for processing, including the accentuated contrast. I agree that the blacks are perhaps a bit inky, was this an artistic decision, or just by happenstance? If not intentional, I'd probably raise the mid-shadows a bit, but still allow a certain percentage of the darkest shadows to fall to black, for impact.

    It's not clear whether you're working with jpegs or RAW files. If jpegs, you're a bit more limited with this type of fine-tuning.

    Good stuff. Thanks for sharing.

    The first baseball shot was with the samyang fisheye. The second was with my panasonic tele.

    The Samyang is amazing. Great quality for the price and very fun to use. I just got it so Im still getting used to it.
