Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!

I have started a new thread for Olympics shots on our DPNow site, see:

http://dpnow.com/forum2/showthread.php?t=13677

It would be great to see some e-group members posting some event shots there

Ian

Re: Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!

Do we have to write any captions in French - it appears to be the first language of the London Olympics?

I'm afraid that my command of the French language is limited to a rough translation of "My Aunt's fountain pen is leaking."

I thought it was something to do with being delighted with the size of his equipment

Re: Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!

My daughter, Elizabeth (16) came home with some really very good shots after two days watching the Handball and Beach Volleyball events using a Pen E-PM1 with a 14-150 m.Zuiko lens. I have sorted some of the Beach Volleyball shots only so far. You can see them here (processed by me from RAW in Lightroom 4.1):

http://dpnow.com/forum2/showthread.p...6303#post66303

More to come!

Some of you must be going/have been to some of the events with a camera?

Regarding the French subject.....it is a rule of the Olympics that French is the language to start off with.....how they arranged with that I dunno as I thought the Olympics started in Greece, and by the way that is where they should be held all the time (my thoughts!) I dunno how they would handle the winter, perhaps have them in Switzerland that is closer to Greece than Canada.

Re: Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!

I am off to the canoe slalom on Wednesday and have hired the m75-300 in anticipation of emulating Ian's brilliant shots yeh right Our seats appear to be very high up and I doubt I will have a good photo position so I am not expecting much. If I do get anything I will certainly post, other than that I will have to wait until the paralympics when I think I have better seats.

Re: Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!

We have the team dressage final next Tuesday - again up in the gods so shall see what i can do with my 50-200. Security at North Greenwich Arena apparently prevented someone taking two lenses in (said there were new guidelines) so I shall probably leave the 12-60 at home. Might have the extension tube with me though....does that count?

Re: Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!



More shots Lizzie's trip to the Olympics - excellent stuff; am very proud of her!

See: http://dpnow.com/forum2/showthread.p...6322#post66322

All taken using a Pen E-PM1 and m.Zuiko 14-150 and developed from RAW by me in Lightroom 4.1.

Hoping some of you will post some Olympics shots in the above thread over at DPNow

Re: Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!

Having problems uploading to DPNow, something to do with links and the number of posts I have. Anyway I will put them here instead.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to go to the Canoe Slalom, an excellent day with a brilliant atmosphere.
I hired the m75-300 and had intended to take a wide angle lens.....but packed the wrong lens, 40-140 instead of m14-140! That will teach me to pack in haste. As a consequence I could only get telephoto shots, in fact it was quite liberating and I found myself concentrating more on composition and working within the limitations of the lens I had.
Some of these are cropped and I think that shows a bit in the quality of the image, but on the whole I was quite pleased.

The Italian (no3) was the Gold Medal winner.

Re: Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!

Hi Shirley - I know you must have been quite a bit further back than I was because my shots were taken from the water bank, so your results are excellent.

I have fast-tracked your account on DPNow so you can post these on there now.

Cheers,

Ian

Re: Post your Olympics shots on DPNow!

Thanks Ian,
Yes, we were in cheap seats, 30 rows UP!
Having said that we had a brilliant view of the whole course and I dont think I could have had a better photo taking seat. I did comment to my husband that I didn't suffer from lens envy but I did suffer from position envy, seeing all the accredited togs at the water's edge!!
I have edited some more pics and think I have some better shots, which I will add later. I am very impressed with the lens, in fact I have just sent an email requesting it for my paralympic trip!
