Tiny insects fly around a stone chimney atop the ruins of the Scranton School Gymnasium in Scranton, Texas. The insects were not found at ground level, could not be seen from that vantage point with the naked eye, and were too small to be seen in the EVF of the camera. An interesting find when the image was viewed on a computer monitor! Shot with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 m43 camera and Panasonic Luxix G Vario 45-200 f/4.0-5.6 zoom, one of a series of tests with this lens, hand-held. Raw conversion in DxO Optics Pro 9. Post Processing in PhotoLine 18, Google Nik Color Efex Pro 4 and Silver Efex Pro 2.
