    E-M5 night shot

    I like doing night shots, long exposures to make lakes look frozen or glassy. So I wish the E-M5 had a lower ISO setting than 200iso. This was taken with a 9-18mm. I am not sure this version of the 9-18mm is as sharp as the 4/3rd version. This is certainly not the best picture I ever took but practicing some. I did have some distractions to shoot around. Maybe Olympus could add it in their first firmware upgrade, I hope you are listening Olympus. Also focus peaking Please, Please.
    So far so good. I think this one will easily be in the running for camera of the year. I am certain Nikon will take the honors this year with the D800.
    I am not big on high ISO shooting but I will get some example shots later. I haven't read to many bad things about the OMD E-M5. I think Olympus is on the road to recovery. I love the ergonomics of the E-M5.

    Great work! Wow! So much detail.....you are really making that E-M5 sing!!!!!

    I love the lighting, especially the red inside the truck. How did you do this?

    Also - I think the shoes on the ground near the door really add character to the image!

    The way you use light brings your images to life, Greg. I notice that in many of your shots, especially night shots.

    Wonderful color on the truck body , factories should start to offer it, intense rust , or something like it

    I may just have lowered a bit the red luminosity inside the truck

    nice lightning job ! and good composition

    Thanks Liz, I use a wireless flash and a colored gel over the flash for the inside. I hand fire a flash for the outside.
