I really enjoy going for walks in the forests and gardens in the nearby hills, and taking the light and compact Micro Four Thirds camera kit avoids making these walks a burden as often happens carrying the larger, heavier dSLRs.
Even though these were shot on a very overcast day in low light, I still prefer to use a polarising filter for when I am shooting leaves so I was thankful I had the Olympus OM-D E-M5 with its 5-axis image stabiliser to help out with these hand held shots without flash in low light using the lovely, light and very sharp Olympus mZD 75mm f/1.8 lens (NB. no PS other than toning adjustments – a lot with the psychedelic garden!):

And by putting the E-M5’s image stabilisation into panning mode, we can shoot the forests in an abstract manner by sweeping the camera at 1/30th sec.
