Hail his majesty the sun! Beautiful tranquility and what a view.
Very nice. I still use my 17mm from time to time. It's a nice walk around lens.
Paul, I've been a studying and a looking at this for a good spell. I reckon Trig is in there but the geometry and color space over rides what I'm seeing. You've handled the subject very well.
Don, you are going Zen on me .. is this a koan for my education and (eventual) enlightenment?
Use the force Paul ka nobie...use the force.
A love that came and went..... Cool pic Pdidde
Are you talking about the 17mm, Pete?
I've probably shot more with this lens in the past few weeks than the rest of the time I've had the camera put together (it came as the kit lens) . I've always thought it very underrated, but using it so much has led me to appreciate its shortcomings as well as its strengths.
I still really like to have it on the camera; it does broad contrasty subjects (objects) beautifully ... and stopped down a bit, is quite sharp enough for my needs. The colour fringing is a bit of a pain mind you.
Paul, the 17 is still my fav m43 lens. Not just the focal length but the way it reads light.
That's brilliant, very impressive. Cheers for sharing
The 17 is all that I have ever used on my E-PL1
Fantastic images! I'm currently contemplating selling my 17mm. I got a fair bit of use out of it when I first bought it late last year, but ever since I got a few native m4/3 wide-angle zooms it has remained on the shelf.
I'd have thought it would suit your sort of image-making rather well Nic ... take off shelf, put on camera ...
Nic don't dooooo eeeettt
Keep the little guy and shoot with him
I've always liked the 17mm lens, I've used it much more than the pan 20mm. Beautiful shot Paul, you were certainly blessed with glorious weather on this trip.
Whoops, just saw your pics after I posted Lili, your cat is stunning.
Funnily enough Briar, this snap was taken after I got back from Cornwall - it's down on the Dorset coast looking across Ringstead Bay to Portland
Never been there, but you've certainly made it look appealing.
