Default Late Afternoon with the 75mm f1.8 M. Zuiko

This lens can really isolate a subject and resolve fine detail..

Oh! I really, really like these. Everything about them makes me feel good.

There was once-upon-a-time that I shot similar subjects and the walks were so rewarding, I need to get back to that.

I really liked the 3rd and 5th shots in particular.

I don't think I'd eat that spiky fruit.

Shot 3, the flower head of the grass -- that's just beautiful.

I was doing some additional shooting with the E-M5 and 75/1.8, comparing it with files captured with the 75-300 at 150mm as I was wondering what amount I would have to crop a 75mm f1.8 file to achieve 150mm, or an equivalent of 300mm and it turns out, almost but not quite exactly, the same resolution of the first Olympus DSLR I ever owned, the E-1 DSLR at just under 2560 pixels on the long side, and if I wanted to preview it, that'd be easy enough using the 2x digital TC feature and just crop the raw file back down later.

Amazing how far they've come since 2006.

great shots, you've really learned to exploit that lens well. The second shot with the bush in the sun isolated probably doesn't catch the eye as much but for me that is a winner as you've managed to draw the eye in to that focal point in spite of the busy fore and background, it conveys a late afternoon mood in it's essence.
