Default Along Turtle Creek This Ecening With My E-P3

Waited until after 6pm this evening (yes, that is the word I MEANT to type in the title line) to go down to the Turtle Creek area of North Dallas with my E-P3 and the 25mm f1.4 Panasonic Leica and the 50mm f2 Macro Zuiko in the Think Tank Retrospective 5 bag.

The light was beautiful and I came home with 4 images I was really happy with, two from each lens.

From the 25mm f1.4..

A nice place to sit down for a minute..





And the 50mm f2, one sharp lens. Truth of the matter is, the 45mm f1.8 is just as sharp for normal photography. Where the 50mm f2 excels over the 45 M. Zuiko is up close, but the 50 is still nice to use every once & a while like this.



Between the trees, sidewalk, lamp and the late afternoon/early evening ambient light, this was my favorite of the evening...

....light today and evening was great.

It was really crappy 'glare' yesterday, I tried shooting at the cars park-n-show and could not keep up with the angles light changes, miserable. But today was really nice so I stayed away from the cameras.

I think you made a good choice for favorite image here, mine too.

Thanks, Bob. Speaking of "crappy"....

Looking at that image after posting, I noticed the darn dog poop bag dispenser, so I re-opened the raw file in ACR, opened up a new converted file in Photoshop CS6 and tried my hand with the content aware patch tool for the first time to remove it. Cool little tool..

....strange how you don't see those things then you do. I've so much of that kind of stuff that I usually just don't bother with by the time I see it, but the tools are pretty neat.

Yeah, if it had taken any real work, I would not have bothered, but the content aware patch was easy. That, and the item I removed was not "complicated" by added shadows and light and other items that would have made the removal more problematic.

Nice work both shooting and post processing! Being able to clone out or otherwise fix those little issues is very useful... I cloned out some people in this image and you can't even tell in the 13x19 print




Here's the original





Question: if you could have just one, the 45 or 50, which would you choose

The 45. Way smaller, way faster AF, and for normal, non-macro shooting, the two lenses produce virtually identical results.
