Default E-M1 Mark II and 12-100mm f4 at the Arboretum This Past Saturday

Excellent all-in one solution for general picture-taking. I didn't have any of my longer lenses and regretted it as I could not "get at" all the blooms I could have with the 40-150mm f2.8, with or without the 1.4x TC and/or the 300mm f4, but still had a nice afternoon..

Hi Zig! I hope things are good at Cape Cod. Are you still doing any of the card sales with your images?

Hi Greg,
Boy, you have a good memory. Yes I am, albeit not as many as I used to now that everyone owns a smartphone.

Default Superb!

Those shots are awesome! The area in shadow is not too dark and the light areas aren't blown out... sort of HDR'ish. Wish I could do that. Excellent!

Thanks.

The EVF and live histogram makes it possible. I exposed the scene without letting the highlights blow (primarily cloud detail....nothing I hate worse than a well exposed landscape that includes clouds with huge areas a blown highlights), then processed the raw files in Adobe camera raw, opening up the shadows to taste using primarily the Blacks and Shadows sliders.
