Default Two Lenses= A Lot of Coverage

Out and about today with the E-P3, coupled with the 12-50 and 75-300 M. Zuikos.

the 12-50 using the macro setting..





These things were tiny..



Then at a nature preserve called Dogwood Audubon Center in far South Dallas..

With the 12-50..



Framing the moon with a landscape, at 13mm..



Another shot, zoomed to 12mm. I was shooting subjects like this to see how much detail the lens could resolve. I like the results..



Shifting to the 75-300..







Then the end of the day..



The 12-50 at 30mm..



Releasing the birds at sunset..

Very nicely done set of photos across a range of subjects and times of day. Composition, use of light, and exposure all made for an enjoyable series.

How did you get away with the last shot at f/11 and 1/600 sec. Did you PP this for the red hue? As always, nice shots.

The colors were part of the sunset. I was able to get by with that exposure by letting all the foreground detail go black. I would have had to use a longer exposure had I wanted to reveal any detail in the other objects in the picture.

Thanks for the comments.

Did you reduce the EV or just manually set it up?

Manually did it. I had the camera on a tripod, started with an exposure and just manually changed it while watching the back LCD as the sun dropped, adjusting it with the changing levels. Easy to get it just the way you want when you have live view and. An see it before you shoot!

The last one reminds me of a picture I took in 1977 while briefly in Kentucky. This was simply scanned in (while still in the picture frame, you can see all the dust), but I have always liked it. Sorry if it is a bit off-topic as far as the camera is concerned.
