Clean, sharp shots ideally suiting the clean, sharp subject lines.


Olympus really do make good lenses. Not enough praise is sung in their direction of that fact.

Thanks Alan and Dallas for watching and commenting.

 

Alan, the quality of the lenses is the main reason I stay with the Micro Four Thirds system. The Oly 12-40mm is an amazing lens, prime quality in a zoom.

Very well done Luc!

 

For my taste, In #1 there is a little too much empty space on the left side and the clouds are not "dramatic" enough to compensate for it. #2 leaves a bit more space for imagination, which is why I like it better than #3

 

just my 2cents about three really nice images!

Thanks Chris. My aim was to get an almost mirror image i.e. left and right of the image almost the same "space" hence the end result but I see your point. Less space on the left would mean reducing the height of the image thus losing the sense of height which imo is essential for what the image is about. Just my thoughts when pressing the shutter as you understand and I appreciate your remark!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Luc, it is always helpful to learn why a very good photographer chose a specific way to approach the final image. Especially when the subject matter is one that I fail to do justice all the time when I try do come up with something decent ...

Negative space adds tension to an image which is fine by me. Nice series Luc. I'm a sucker for architectural photography.
