Default Rainy Day at the Arboretum

No place for a stinkin' slow zoom lens today, but with two fast primes, who cares? Just stay under the umbrella...

E-P3 and either the 45/1.8 or 25/1.4, captured raw and processed in Lightroom 4. Time for dinner. Pancakes sound good....

Wow, another superb series of shots Greg. Always look forward to seeing you shots.

(Don't be a stranger to the Oly regular 4/3 forum. You are still welcome to comment, even if you don't shoot with the big camera anymore.)

Yeah, really crappy day for weather but these are very nice, especially I like the Japanese maple. It gently poured all day over here, still is @ 9pm. Next week is going to be fantastic & the wildflowers will begin to show.

Another nice series of shots. I'm trying to picture how the second shot would have looked had you took the pic from the center of the walk shooting toward the fountain. Those trees make a good frame.

All good images. It's almost impossible to tell which picture was shot with what lens.

the tree lined walkway is stunning - wonderful colors - looks like it was shot w/the 25mm wide open - was it handheld?

Yes, they can look pretty darn close. There is enough compression of the subject with the 45/1.8 to give a substantially different look compared to the 25/1.8 if you try shooting the same subject with both. Otherwise, both lenses are quite excellent. Thanks.

Beats the heck out of snow. I'm sure glad spring is right around the corner.
