'Analog Diary - Five frames on a walk in the park with the Olympus OM Zuiko 21mm F3.5 ultra-wide angle lens, Part I'

Olympus Zuiko OM 21mm F3.5
It was a fine a sunny early evening when I first took the Zuiko Auto-W MC 21mm F3.5, an ultra-wide angle lens, for a walk in the park. The sun was still bright showing the hints of a golden sunset which in the end did not really materialize.

Completed the walk around the perimeter of the lake, finished a roll of shots on a camera that has erratic metering. Happy to share the first batch of shots here.

Aside from those bunked by the erratic metering of the camera, and shortcomings from my own creativity, the outing went quite well and I was more than pleased with the results.

The F3.5 21mm is considered sharp and highly recommended for ultra-wide angles and landscape use, a genre where you don't really need autofocus capabilities. On the camera, focusing is manual with the focus scale on the lens set to hyperfocal distance. Images were post-processed on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3).
