Default Extreme ends at the spillway

Went on a walk around the spillway at White Rock Lake today. Very overcast, but comfortable temps, so I carried my bag with the E-P3 and full complement of lenses. I captured this first image with the 7.5mm Rokinon to take in the full view and used Fisheye Hemi to correct the file..



As I took the above shot, I noticed directly across the dam what appeared to be two people standing at the point taking in the scene, so I mounted the 75-300 M. Zuiko, zoomed to 200mm, framing the image to keep the dam wall detail included. If you view this image at 100%, there's some pretty darn good detail resolved on the people. The 75-300 is a very sharp lens, but also very, very light and a challenge to handhold at 300mm.

I have to agree with you re the detail. I went to Smug Mug and blew it up as much as they allowed and it looks pretty darn good.

.....more splendid examples of getting the most from hardware & software.

update 01/21/12 ... I just peeked in and saw the 45mm shots at the hockey game. It is incredible how sharp the 45 is, I really like the AAC images.

Wish I was half as good as you and Greg. My best pic is below and compared to some of the work you two have shown, I'd say it's about average and I now see that is was oversharpened a bit.

James, I like your photo as is. The sharpening gives it a mood of its own.

An amazing amount of clear detail rendered by 75-300. A nice steady set of hands there Greg.
An amazing amount of detail to be captured. To have your civic engineers go ahead with the extra detailing in the concrete and railings is a beauty to behold.
