Default E-M1 and mZuiko 40-150 on Parliament Hill in Ottawaa

These were taken on Parliament Hill at the changing of the guard. It is quite a grand event.

The processing in Aperture was a simple cropping and modest sharpening. One might like more isolation of the subjects, but I chose DOF for including the main subject matter successfully.

At $199, and often for $149 or even $99, the optical quality vs. price ratio of the 40-150mm f4-5.6 M. Zuiko is about as good as it gets, and it weighs nothing.

There's a lot going on in this image, so I like the depth of field here. Maybe if there was some centralized "thing" happening a narrower depth of field would be better, but I believe you got it right for the subject.

Great shots with a bargain lens. I have the 4/3rds model, the older style. So that's where the Beatles got their hair idea from. :-)

Great shots of a wonderful tradition. Though I agree with Greg, maybe a shallower DOF might have improved the especially the first shot. The fellow in the LA Kings hat just seems to jump out.
Could be wrong but I believe these are the lads of the Black Watch, the Royal Highland Regiment. Story was these fellows did not wear anything under their kilts.
