  1. Dear YONG SIR,

    as I can see, you have a new photo camera representing Micro 4/3 standard which seems to be really interesting proposition for those who like to shot still nature-like photos. They can create a surrealistic impression on the spectator due to great depth of field and excellent light and shadow effects that make them close to old chiaroscuro paintings and microphotographs from the other hand. Buildings and their architectonic fragments depicted in images named “gateway” and “circular windows” look more like microscopic preparates or pieces of furniture. I have a special sentiment to the “broken brick” photo that resembles a piece of rock examined by a geologist’s hammer revealing a precious, big crystal hidden inside. 😉 Other pictures are also very good but represent a bit lower level of internal “tension” and, let’s say, “anxiety” than aforementioned ones, anyway I like them too. 🙂

    • Dear Kud Jah Kim,

      Thank you very much for your comments.

      Architectonic landscape is one of my favorite photographing topics. As the camera can automatically correct chromatic aberration, distortion and vignetting in the JPEG outputs, the photos look not just realistically-neat but also magically-clear, which is exactly what I have been looking for.

      While some of my photos do have “space for imagination”, I have never thought that they would generate “anxiety” or “tension” in the viewers’ mind. Perhaps some viewers tend to appreciate the mathematical notions of “infinity”, “convergence”, “hidden dimensions”, etc. In terms of creativity, I like the dull-colored photo entitled “Salutation” most.

      Here are some final words about “depth of field”. Other things being equal, a LARGER sensor generally gives a THINNER depth of field. Compared to the tiny sensors in entry-level point-and-shoot cameras, the much-larger micro 4/3 sensor gives a shallower depth of field, and thus the subject can be easily-isolated from the background in the photo. The same applies to the APS-C and full-frame sensors, which are even larger than the micro 4/3 counterparts.

      Have a nice day!

      Best wishes,
      YONG SIR
