Georg, I was looking at the photos you posted in the "I'll show you mine..." thread - outstanding work, very inspirational indeed. I'm curious to know; are you shooting with a wide-format camera or cropping to the panoramic format? I see on another thread you're stitching some images too.
Thank you for your kind words!
As for my equipment, at the moment I shoot exclusively with Olympus E-1 4/3 system. I have 2 lenses, Zuiko Digital 14-54mm 2.8-3.5 and Zuiko Digital 50-200mm 2.8-3.5, as well as a 1.4 extender. I shoot also with a panorama head and crop the result to my liking, something I just started last week, but I find this a particulary interesting approach.
As for inspiration, I live in Ireland and especially the NW atlantic coast where I am provides 1st class soulfood for any artist, writers, sculpters,painters, musicians etc.
I made my first attempt today to shoot rocks, the reason I did that was that I wanted to have my own material available to study the possibilities that LAB Color provides.
Here it goes, first baby steps....
