A few week ago my wife and I spent a few days in Madrid/Spain. I like this city a lot, it felt really authentic Spanish. Not flooded with tourists and lots of interesting places to visit. Plus great food!

 

I took a compact gear set with me, an Olympus E-M10II camera with Olympus 12-40mm lens and a Samyang fisheye lens. All images processed in Capture One Pro from RAW.

 

1. Fisheye view from the rooftop bar at 26th floor of our hotel

2. And a "normal" view

3. For fun, shot with in-camera Key Line Art Filter

4. Fisheye view of the ceiling of the Cathedral of Saint Mary the Royal of La Almudena

Just a note on your gear, I think you would really like the Olympus 12-100/4.0 PRO lens. It’s a bit bigger than the 12-40/2.8 but as a travel companion I don’t think you can really ask for more. The IS combined with IBIS is amazing, as is the reach and sharpness. I think I will do a video comparison of these next week.

Come to think of it, I also brought a 35-100mm f4-5.6 lens with me (the very compact one) but didn't use it at all. I agree the 12-100mm is great and having that zoom range in one lens is very convenient.

Hello Maurice, thanks. This is the first series I processed in Capture One and my impression is (I did a comparison with a few images) Capture One squeezes a bit more from the RAW's than Lightroom does. So I'm happy with Capture One and will stick to it. The cathedral ceiling image was processed when my knowledge of Capture One's correction tools was still limited, so maybe I''ll reprocess that image.

      This morning I found a bit of time and managed to get back to a location overlooking the Melbourne skyline to try and recreate some shots I took a little of 8 years ago.  The comparisons are interesting both in the changes in the cityscape and in the cameras available to me.
       
      This was the original shot I wanted to recreate - a crop from a 6Mpixel image taken with a Nikon D50 and 18-55
       

      Skyline 1
       
      And the newer image - a slight crop of a 24Mpixel image taken with a Fuji X-E3 and 18-55.

      A series of images of Het Groene Huis (The Green House). This place is a Centre for Nature and Environment Education in my hometown Amersfoort. It is built environmentally and energy friendly. The outside is cladded with paneling from locally produced birch wood which should last about 50 years. The exterior of the building is designed to let it blend with the surroundings. I imagine this works better in summer than in the winter conditions when I shot these images. I would have preferred snow on the ground and on the building but that was not to be although it was very cold.

      IBIS (in-body image stabilization) of Olympus cameras is fantastic.
