I'm waiting for that to start here and then get slammed with a late spring snow storm.
Right, if this keeps up we'll be in a position where a sudden hard freeze will do a lot of damage.
I go round and round the mulberry bush. Why does the weasel go “pop?” Does it matter? If life is enjoyed, does it have to make sense?From "the Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore", Oscar winner, short animation (check it out on the web....)
Wonderful color palette, Carl.And I am thinking about the focal length you used - it looks much more like a longer lens than the 42mm the exif data report.
Markus, I find that any focal length, in this case a moderate long 84-mm equivalent, can be made to look longer or shorter depending on how you use it. The sense of perspective compression of a long lens can be emphasized or de-emphasized, or a normal lens can be made to look quite long or quite short. I can't give a linear, literal description of how to do this, but it's a visual thing you can figure out. Oh, of course you can get very close to a subject with quite a wide lens and use it in a way that doesn't scream "wide angle" or you can use a moderate wide lens and get a really strong "wide angle effect."I'm going on at length about this because I suspect that it's all something someone would never learn shooting with zoom lenses...
Carl, I experienced this effect with a 28mm - 42mm-e prime on my APS-C DSLR: depending on the subject matter and my positioning it looked like a moderate wide angle or almost tele-like flattened. And now I enjoy my 3 primes on the G3 and only feel a speed handicap when asked to cover a birthday party or the like (with 4 ladies in the family demands can be high). Would you have told me that same thing 5 years ago, I might have denied this possibility without a second thought. Now speak about experience...
