E-30 and Soft Interiors

This was a shot of my Company's Office Lobby. The reception desk was just over to the right, and was not part of the image.

This image was shot with Live View, and I used the Level Gauge to ensure the Horizontals and Verticals were accurate. With the 14mm field-of-view, getting right-angle perspective was the challenge.

This was a cinch with the E-30!!!

Notice how the soft focus effect rendered the dark tones lighter. It's done subtly with glowing effect. Somehow, this reminded me of mild Orton Effect.

Comparatively, this image I set to Vivid color mode, with Contrast +2, Sharpness +1 and Saturation +1. In particular, I tried to get the high impact look of the interiors, and popping up the colors of blue lights and red gold fish in the aquarium.
