Default Today's Roses and "stuff" at the Arboretum

A little windy, but some good, diffused light, making for a lot of fun with the blooms out there right Now. Captured with the E-M1 and Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8, but some other subjects captured with the 12-40mm f2.8 M. Zuiko and Panasonic 7-14mm f4..













These next couple of images were fun because I was playing again with the shadows and light to see how much detail I could retain in both when processing the raw file. Exposed to retain highlights.

....amazing!

The 7-14 images are what I'm talking about here, just amazing in all respects. The 12-40's are beautiful too, but the 7-14 is just a bit the best this time (IMO).

That is one fun lens. I'm seeing 8mm being a very good focal length. Really wide, but the extreme superwide effect does not show unless you're right up on the subject. Trying to make use of the entire zoom range and not just using it as a 7mm prime, which can be difficult sometimes.

Kelsey called today. I'm staying with her Thursday through Tuesday morning, then driving to Gettysburg and will spend all day Wednesday and Thursday there, walking the National Battlefield. It's looking like one of those days may be rainy, so definitely an E-M1 and pancho day. Friday when I drive back to NJ, may have to detour to the Hersey factory.

She has to fly to Germany Monday evening to deliver supplies, returning Thursday so I'll see her Friday and Saturday morning too. She said she was going to bring some German beer back for us to have Friday night. Now, that's what you call an extreme "Beer Run".

Can her plane land on a 6,000 foot runway? Bring extra beer.

After climbing up in the KC-10 today, wow. That thing, and the C-5, need all the runway you can give them.

Bob, the 7-14 was a lot of fun on the flight line today.

And, my suitcase finally arrived.

Great set of rose shots and the others are nice too, but for my taste those roses are just so crisp and detailed in texture I almost can smell them.

Last 2 are the money makers in my book. Great angle and composition on the 2nd to last and the last shot looks almost 3D.
