Yeah, I agree and was happy to see this one show up on the card. The little Pany 14mm has been kind to me lately. In fact every time I've shot with it, I've come away pleasantly surprised with some nice keepers. Its contrasty rendering and diminutive size/weight reminds me of the DA35/2.4.


A self fulfilled prophecy I'd say. You might agree when you see my image for the day.

Couple more images from yesterday... Big sis home from college for the weekend. Our only time with her since August and until Christmas.




and the Rokinon MFT Fisheye just arrived that I was hoping to Rok on Rocktober theme day... 180 degree fov, a .09 meter MFD at a tidy 145g. Acquired in like new for $150.

Don't think I'll keep it mind for any soap bubble bokeh today though... But I guess I should never say never.. :)

That would have inspired me too! I immediately start thinking of the word plays (sorry).. Pewfartium... My first instrument was trombone in the third grade but that only lasted a year and I moved on to drums. I do recall making many a fart sound with the trombone too. :)

Some snaps from today in Laguna Beach CA - again with E-M10MarkII + OLY M.40-150mm F4.0-5.6 R







And from the other day E-M10MarkII + Pany 14/2.5



(when the house clown decides to climb a screen for the first time... )

I had no clue until yours. I just looked it up and it's a specific type of euphonium called a marching baritone. ;)

For those of you who might not get around to visiting my daily share, where I also shared this info, I'm posting it here too, due to it's strong subliminal connection to this group. :)

I had a vivid dream last night and was sadly dissappointed when i woke up. In the dream I was on a photo walk by the beach and there were fancy houses and I came across a back yard with a large raised deck. i walked around then looked up at the deck where a giant gorilla was throwing a chimpanzee really high in the air and it was spinning really fast in the air. i was getting such great shots and was so excited to have this as my shot for the day to share with the group.

The next house over was a nice family having a party in the back yard by a pool. they had a giant pet spider about the size of a shaggy dog. in fact it looked more like a shaggy dog than a spider but it was scary the way it moved like a spider. but everyone assured me it was friendly. i started taking pictures of it trying to get low pov's then noticed they had somehow fastened a camera lens to its face so it could see people through it. it was hard to get a shot of it though because it kept making sudden moves toward me...

So yeah, i knew i was definitely going to go with the gorilla/chimpanzee shots for the daily share, at least until i woke up.... Selah.

I wonder if I've been eating too much dark chocolate lately... :)

Great shot for the challenge! Overcooked this one (hard to not to) so might go at it again later in the week and try to do fewer more focused manipulations to achieve the desired effect.

Congrats!



Initial processing in Rawtherapee then exported to Gimp. Two layers in Gimp and ran the Gimp 'Zoom Motion blur' filter on the top layer. Messed around with the filter coordinates until I got something I liked well enough, then blended that layer in to the bottom layer with a mask. I did try it with more blur in the hand and head but it was distracting to my eyes.
