Oslo - by the station

Nice shot! You do get around.


jsrtheta 05.27.18 at 8:14 pm

Hmm. What are you shooting with, if you don’t mind my asking?


Mary Ellen Sandahl 05.27.18 at 8:40 pm

Oh, that high-latitudes light!


Alan White 05.27.18 at 8:44 pm

I think you should entitle this “Trolley Problemata”.

@jsrtheta this was a Panasonic GX-80 with a Panasonic 20mm f1.7.

Hi Chris. Now that I’m retired, I intend to do a lot more stuff–and I’m a shutterbug. I own a Canon dslr 3ti and (among other lenses) a 70-200mm ef and have had good results with it, but I also own a Canon sx-50 and, especially with birding and nature photography, prefer the long-reach 50x in good light (I have three other smaller portable digitals as well). Plus the point-and-shoot 50x is just easier to lug around. What do you prefer? Isn’t the GX-80 a mirrorless?

Hi Alan. Yes it is, marketed as the GX-85 in North America. The m4/3 format (half-size sensor so double focal lengths compared to 35mm format) makes for a nice small camera without too much sacrifice of image quality. I also own a Nikon D7100 with a variety of lenses, but I rarely use it these days.

I would blazon this as: an aerial electrical web casting distinct shadows on a sparse network of rail tracks, in the middle ground a contrasting assortment of architecture and a scattering of human figures.

The starkness of the lighting notwithstanding, the shadows suggest it wasn’t noon.

My first thought was that I don’t like the overhead wires. Then I zoomed in a bit and was seduced by the detail and the clarity of the light. It really feels like being there.
I have the same lens and a GX8. I must walk around with it some more.
