    The USS Laffey is a WWII destroyer that is somewhat restored and on display at Patriot's Point Maritime Museum at Mount Pleasant, SC (across the harbor from Charleston). I will also be posting some images from the USS Yorktown (CV-10, the 2nd Yorktown that served in WWII) in a couple days. All of these were taken with the E-M5 mk II and the 7-14/2.8 PRO lens. Raw processed in DXO Pro, LR and various plugins.

    Oh, and these are all single exposures with no HDR processing. I shot everything as HDR brackets but didn't have to use them (which is what usually happens).

    As an aside, I alternately used my Olympus and Fuji gear on this vacation to decide if I still needed/wanted to run 2 systems. I started thinking I still favored the Fuji's but after a lot of hours examining files and tweaking my m43 processing, I think it is extremely hard to tell the finished shots apart, aside from the Olympus files are usually a little sharper.
