Oakland Sightems - 2

Duende - Oakland  2014

Parking Lot, Reflections - Oakland  2014

I took these Oakland photos with a new lens: the Olympus 14-42mm EZ ("electronic zoom") lens. I ultimately returned it because the results I was getting with it seemed pretty soft . . . needed quite a bit of sharpening work in Photoshop.

Although the Oakland pix look quite all right.

Beautiful images here, Mike. I particularly like the first image. To me it is a what a black an white photography should like, showing a complete range of tones. Very nice work!

Hey Ed! Thanks!

And yikes . . . you've just ended an extremely long drought in Comments.

Needless to say, Photoshop is involved in the BW conversions.

Of course I agree, but unfortunately these kind of pix would never sell in my booth.
