Love the view on all of them but the perspective on #1 is really cool.

Marcelo, these done so well I can feel the 'feel of actually seeing the scenes'.

Seems like you're getting the hang of the 45 pretty nicely.

Very nice, Marcelo. I think you captured a realistic feeling of cityscapes that projects in each of those shots.

Very nice shots and what I liked most is scenes that most people do not see of NY. I like the subway tracks photo.

Thank you Sammy, it is a "weird" focal lenght for me but I like it because force you to think twice and try to compose according to it.

Thank you Steven, it is my first time taking this train and I think I will return to find a nicer angle of the city and the train rails.

If budget would allow the purchase of only one Oly f1.8, which would you recommend: the 25 mm or the 45 mm? I'm an utter newbee in the FourThirds world, coming from a Sony alpha 100 (which nowadays would be considered "vintage" I reckon). On the Sony I had the kit lens and a analogue Minolta 70-200 mm. The only f1.8 experience I ever had was with the Olympus C2040Z..those days (2001) a spectacular compactcamera with 2.1 Megapixels... Changed the compact for the Alpha 100 in 2004. But I'd love to have a f1.8 for the magnificent Bokeh in my E-M10 bundle. But since I already spent quite some bucks on the OM-D E-M10 with the pancake 14-42 and the 40-150 mm zoom and the carry case and the automatic lens cap, I must choose between the various available f1.8 lenses.... I would use it for protrait and landscape and like you did, with and without bokeh. Thanks in advance for your advice!
