Just got my new GH2 so I took the ferry to Manly. Some thoughts:

It's nice to have a click instead of the clunk of my 5D mkII. It works well in good lighting and the 14–140 is compact compared to its Canon equivalent. The camera fits well under my jacket in the rain.

Cons, the zoom is the opposite direction as my Canon lenses, so I'm zooming when I want to go wide angle. Whilst the zoom is smaller than the Canon equivalent it still isn't that discrete. Quality drops off quite quickly once the light drops off. I'm not so happy with the default 4:3 ratio of the images.









Cheers,

Nice ones Tom, no camera is perfect and the one you have with you is the best. Like the first and last especially and they reminded me of what I took the past weekend on the beach in Knokke with my new (to me) Nex 5:



Seems we have the same weather on opposite sides of the globe

Clouds can be very dramatic and interesting, and so easily blown when taking the shot.

Here's one that I took recently from an aircraft window, that I particularly like.

Thanks for sharing these, folks!  Here's one from last spring, that I just got around to playing with.

That's cool! With a little imagination the varied tones and shapes of the clouds appear to be outlines of lots of objects.

I wonder would this qualify?

Comments?

Before I comment, I would like to know the creators saying on if that's what he was aiming before shooting or if he decided the approach later. That is because in 0 to 10 scale, I would give 10 for the impact that the result could have had (in both images) and 1 for the way it was done..., since the later can be redone... to know, ...is important to me (and some others). I would also like to see the original images if you could Jeremy. Regards,Theodoros. www.fotometria.gr

A few from the land of the long white cloud, Aotearoa.
The first is from my front door. The second from near Hyde in North Otago and the third is on the ferry from Stewart Island heading back to the mainland.
Third image... it really needs subtraction of color! Can't you see that color is destructive there? It could have been a masterpiece IMO... Regards, Theodoros. www.fotometria.gr

I agree. How about this one (colour and b&w versions):

[attachment=22888:avoca.jpg]  [attachment=22889:avocabw.jpg]

Like you, Lois, I haven't removed the cables. They're visible and slightly irritating but I think it would be a lot of work.

Jeremy
Damn good shot..! If you are good in Jazz, you don't have to prove that you can Rock as well..., you just let it roll and let the others trying to... Rock (while you smile, ...that is). Regards, Theodoros. www.fotometria.gr
