Default Hop Aboard Santa

It's getting to be that time of year again.

Driving back from breakfast this morning came across these good folk preparing to deliver Santa to the local mall. It's a good thing they found an out-of-sight spot to get ready or they would already be swamped with children who have been strategically directed to the arrival area.

G'day mate

A great set of double-whiskers you've managed to get there - tho I do like the close-up whiskers

I like your selection of DoF to highlight the horse while also giving enough sharpness to the action going on behind the horse

Well done
Phil

Thanks Phil. Forgot to mention that's due to f5 on the Lumix 20mm. I should say though, like many of my photos, that kind of pre-planning or forethought was largely absent.

Pre-planned or not, that is an excellent capture.

very nice holiday image, great composition and use of DOF, plus good colors. Was this taken with the 12-40?

Hi ramcewan- This using the Lumix f1.7, 20mm pancake. One of the first lenses I picked up and still one of my favorites. I bought it because it's fairly inexpensive (as far as lenses go). I later manned-up and bought the highly regarded Lumix G Micro 4/3 LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm f/1.4 and frankly don't use it as much. The little extra FOV of the 20 has come in handy more than a few times. Plus the pancakes are convenient shirt-pocket lenses. I wholeheartedly recommend one for your new E-PM2.

Thanks for the comment about the colors. I struggle with red for some reason and wonder if the type of sensor has anything to do with it. Even red roses get blown out if not careful.
