    Autumn is late this year (in Holland) and mushrooms are few because of the high temperature and low humidity for this time of year. Still I managed a few images of the nearby nature during a short walk in the forest. Olympus E-M10II + Olympus 75mm f1.8 1. 2. 3.
  2. Thanks for this extensive and interesting review.

    A good story and a nice image. Well done Mike.

    Was there a fire drill?

    I'm interested in your experiences with C1 compared to LR. Good luck with the transition and learning curve!

    Nothing wrong with older audio gear, on the contrary. Btw; I'm now editing images and listening to Led Zeppelin 1 played very loud through my MM-1 speakers. I love it!

    I noticed that Yamaha you've got, a nice setup. I've got the Denon equivalent (I guess they're made by an OEM) and use it in my office aka "man attic" combined with a vintage Stax SR-44 electret headphone. But there I listen most of the time to a pair of B&W MM-1 desktop speakers combined with an Audioquest Dragonfly USB-DAC which is a really good upgrade to the DAC in the B&W's. Does it ever end? For me the answer is yes, I used to be fascinated with achieving higher audio quality and spent a lot of money on it. Nowadays I just want to listen to good music and enjoy the mood and experience.

    I’ve been busy with work and research into audio gear for the living room. I have more or less decided on a NAD C368 amplifier with Bluesound streaming module coupled to a pair of Bowers and Wilkins 707 S2 bookshelf speakers. Not high-end but surely hi-fi and better than the current situation which is no audio gear at all.

    I just read this on a car magazine “You need a Landrover to go into the bush, You need a Landcruiser to get out of the bush.”

    How about the 2019 Suzuki Jimny as spiritual successor to the Defender? https://www.caradvice.com.au/664323/2019-jimny-australia-confirmed/

    Oh sorry that's not what I meant. I meant masking as in a parameter of sharpening. See the info in this link https://photographylife.com/how-to-properly-sharpen-images-in-lightroom

    I never use smart sharpening as I like to be in control to avoid sharpening artefacts. I also apply quite a lot of masking to avoid unwanted sharpening on even areas like skies.

    Indeed quite a dramatic image, I like it. This one seems a bit over sharpened. My wife was on Gran Canaria last week with two vloggers/influencers and crew to shoot professional videos and stills for a social media campaign. The camera crew were amazed at the quality of the images she shot with her Huawei Pro 10 smartphone and used one of them in the final production. Technical progress is focusing on smartphone cameras.

    Thanks Mike! 😁 That was a group of house painters having a coffee break. It is a funny sight indeed and adds a little extra to the image, glad you noticed!

    Thanks Dallas. I like to share these here so people get and idea there's much more to Holland than Amsterdam, drugs and clogs 🙄. In fact, just today the Dutch government launched a campaign to promote tourists (both national and international) to visit lesser known, interesting places in Holland as places like Amsterdam, Keukenhof, Volendam and Giethoorn suffer a lot from too many visitors.
