The Crowd

'Digital moments, colors of the Minolta MD 50mm f/1.7, mounted on the Olympus E-P5'

Crowds are always a colorful lot, be they both participants, or spectators, and in this case a local fishing tournament at a local lake. The crowd is located in small to medium size groups evenly distributed on the perimeter of the lake, which is more than a kilometer in length.

Olympus PEN EP-5, Minolta MD 50mm f/1.7

Images were captured on the Olympus E-P5 mounted with a Minolta MD 50mm f/1.7 manual focus legacy lens. Post-processing for these color images was first done on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) with Auto Tone Correction, Brightness & Contrast, Gamma correction, and Highlight & Shadow Control. Print Sharpening was done on Google NIK Sharpener Pro3. I also did an earlier post on this event, with images converted to black and white, which I reckon came out quite as well.

'Analog diary, a pseudo effort at post-processing images for soft focus effect'

A dream, based on what one may find on the Net, 'is a succession of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that usually occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep,' whose content and purpose is not yet fully understood, and in most cases, are forgotten by the time one gets out of bed. Yes, according to Deirdre Barrett, author of The Committee of Sleep, dreams are notoriously difficult to recall, and if a dream ends before we wake up, we will not remember it.
