Impressive since they're hand-held. Smile I also rock back and forth to get perfect focus. I got used to this when I was using the lensbaby for close-ups.

I think I'll have to resign from this thread - I can't compete with Brian's stuff (or Denny's or Anne's or Roger's or ..................etc) Sad

Those are certainly wow pics, Brian. I knew you'd get good stuff out of the new lens. Smile

From Anne

Quote: Does Lightroom translate the RAW file using the camera settings.

No it does not.

If you go to the develop module>camera calibration the Adobe Standard will be for your camera in terms of converting the RAW file

lr.jpg

However, if you click on the drop down box, see arrow, there may be a list of the camera's jpeg modes, Portrait, Landscape, Vivid etc.

This is Adobe's attempt at simulating the "in camera" jpg processing.

Please note the word " attempt" so do not expect exactly the same as Olympus' processing, but it may be reasonably close.

Thanks for this Jeff. It pretty much tells me what I expected. I've done some processing of images using my Olympus Viewer 2, and then done the same image in LR 4.2, and see that I have a bit more leeway in Viewer 2 wrt changing my settings, and that this can influence small changes.

Three are no options in the drop down menu. I find that Adobe products like to ignore Olympus. I had to upgrade to Lightroom 4 in order to get it to read the ORF files from the EM-5!

Don't even go there CB, you know it isn't a competition, that's the last thing we need. You remember what they say about variety, well, they're right as far as I'm concerned. Let's see some of your pics.Grin

Good use of the wide angle - I take it you are right up against it. Good detail, and a hint of you in the reflection Wink

Thanks Anne. Smile

Yes, it was pretty close. I wouldn't say the 20mm (=40mm on FF) is a wide-angle, as such, but a touch wider than 'standard' I suppose.

No close-ups from me today, I'm afraid. But I was messing around with differential focus using the Olympus 75-300 and came up with this, which although nothing startling perhaps, has something about it that I like:

Imagine; showing your pixie in public! Tut, tut!Wink

Anne, you asked the name of that plant with pink flowers; it's a cohlera, a variety of African Violet, and does well as a house plant, so they gave me one this morning.Smile
