Not much time to take photos after work since it gets dark so early, so this photo was taken out the front of the shop. I guess you can get photos anywhere, you just have to look for them.

Recently acquired a Panasonic 12-32mm f3.5/5.6 lens to go along with my Oly E-M10. The Oly 14-42mm "R" lens the camera came with was fine, but I like the smaller size of this lens and the zoom lock on the 14-42 was a pain.

Took it for a trial run to an abandoned grain elevator. Post-processed with ACR and NIK HDR Efex Pro

Realistic low light shot

In stead of trying to make a low light shot not look low light I tried to keep it as it actually looked.
Taken with an adapted Rikinon 85mm at f/1.4. The hardest part was manual focus in such low light.
Anyway wanted to try something different. The only light was from an open cellar door.

I love the processing on these! The processing really works well with the subject matter.

Thought I'd post these here, taken this weekend. I used an Olympus OMD EM10 and a 12-40mm f2.8 Pro lens.

Good effort! - 1 through 4 are outstanding, with the edge of the flurries being right there. I bet it was a little chilly as well.

yes. i really like the berry shot--incredibly vibrant and nicely framed. sometimes its really hard to control the background, and i just find it a littke distracting, so i wondered how itd look if you either trued to blacken it out or desaturate it. dont mean any offense, so please dont take any--just trying to be helpful!

No, I've been doing infrared with m43 for nearly four years. Here's one from 2013, with the Pany 14-45:

Hi Tony, no problem at all, thanks for the thought!
Hmm, my original intent was to ensure that the viewer was aware that there were lots of berries on the tree. I hadn't even thought of the brightness/saturation (which may not be as visible on my cheap laptop screen). Let me have a play....

This was a jpg too - radial filter, drop saturation, white point drop:
