Default Montauk Lighthouse

Today I removed the dust from my OMD-E5 and I went to the beach to take some pictures with the 14-150mm MK II.



Have a great day.

Marcelo

Hey Marcelo, it looks like you might have moved the link.

edit: now I see the image and it is stunning, beautiful color in the sky and great composition pulling my eye in from the foreground on to the lighthouse, well done!

Wow!!! excellent shot love the composition as well, the rocks in the left bottom half with the tide coming in, the waves breaking on the right side & the colour of the sky behind the lighthouse. Looks like a photo that could be in a calendar, once again great shot.

I would be interested in hearing the procedure you used to remove the dust. Not that I've ever had that many problems with it. The time or two I did, it was all my fault and I wound up just sending the camera to Olympus.

I've had far more issues keeping/removing dust off the larger sensor'd Leica M9's I've been using recently than any Olympus camera I've used since 2006.

I used a pre-moistened sensor swab to remove a water spot on the sensor (low pass filter actually) of my E-M1 last year and found it to be an easy process. A google of "Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab Plus with Eclipse for Type 2 Sensors" will find you plenty of places to purchase them. The type 2 sensor part means it will be sized for MFT sensors making it a single swipe across the sensor to remove dust or spots.

I agree. And the great depth of field that you achieved by this lens really adds to the impact of the photo. I really like the way the focus extends all the way from the foreground to the lighthouse and beyond to the clouds.

Very nice composition Marcelo, I like the way the wave stops the eye from going to the horizon and leads it to the lighthouse.

Thank you ramcewan, I updated the link because I added a locked one by mistake.

Thank you Tom,

It was a beautiful afternoon at the beach, not too cold and lucky to have the colors in the sky.

Greg, I'm sorry for the confusion but I meant the dust my camera was collecting on my shelf because of lack of use.
I am using Olympus cameras for years and I never had problems with dust on the sensor, with my Nikon and Canon it is part of my monthly routine.

I use Eclipse and it is easy to use.

Thank you Steven,

I am starting a project and I will use my Oly system for it because what to mentioned about the DOF. I tried with my FF system and I found some many problems and limitations. You will see soon what I am talking about.
