its odd that no direction home seems to be a hit... it was a badly exposed throwaway shot that with a little PP kinda worked.
have a fun christmas... we are off to scotland tomorrow in search of the Loch Ness Leica
... so so... looking for the Loch Ness Leica Monster ??? The S2 !!!!
let me be its victim....
Guten Morgen Berlin,
du kannst so häßlich sein, so dreckig und grau...
very nice; Weston or Imogene come to mind
Kweide - very nice shot. Makes me think of Arizona in the springtime.
Made in Sicily.... i can still feel the sun...
G1, FL50, Sigma 150mm macro:
Wow! Nice shootin' there Olyinaz!
And Klaus great street shot (although the support under the guy who is sitting is suspiciously quite Fruedian!). Alos, given the guy's apparent girth the writing on the truck adds even more amusement to the photo.
And your mother nature shot is, simply, very O'Keefe-like and stunning.
Thanks for sharing.
Life is an infinite series of moments called..."now".
My job is to capture them.
One from christmas shooting...
Old OM50 f1.4 wide open....
Nice self portrait there Oly, please don't link from dpreview to this site... we have a nice time being civil on this forum
... but mom likes this best....
Don´t know why ??
I've only had the Lumix L1 a few days, and until I adapt a few legacy lenses I am confining myself to the Olympus 25mm Pancake. I tested the camera for three days in early December then wrapped it up and opened it on Christmas day. So very much in the learning stage although it feels like an old friend already.
Okay... you have the paper ...lol
I have this
One has to look around. If anyone in the rooms, boy what a big trouble you can get into ....
Cledry -- LOVE the cat shot!
Here's one of her offspring from her last litter before the operation. Also taken with the same camera and lens.
a couple of shots wth some new/old lenses on my Oly 510
first on a old Nikkor 28/3.5
and the second on a odd Sigmatel 135/1.8..... yup thats nearly a 300mm f1.8!!!
The coloration of that cat is amazing.
Late Christmas Night with the G1
Just this guy you know
Hi John, he is feral so it would be a difficult proposition at best. He is very nervous of humans. He was hit by a car that killed his brother and later hit by another car. Both times I couldn't catch him to get him treatment. Thankfully he has healed without so much as a limp.
Here's a shot from this afternoon with the G1 and the 45-200mm lens. This is just a killer little camera and lens system!
Processed in ACR, CS4 & Silver EFex Pro.
More on my website.
But who is the proudest ?
Simon, that is a fantastic photograph. Love the interplay between the underwater reeds and the shadows.
It is shining... like a polished mirror. Great work...
Panasonic 45-200 @ 155 f7.1 1/640 100 ISO
Thanks for watching.

Here are a few shots from my step son's wedding. Made me happy I wasn't the photographer. What pressure. I was using the FL36R Oly flash. Mostly used it as a bounce flash. I still need to learn a lot more about using it.

Competition at the thistle feeder today. G1 with 45-200.
My other thought is--I never use a tele--maybe--because its big and maybe not quite as long as I need at times. Perhaps with a small light camera and lens I might actually change my shooting LOL.

The 45-200 is quite compact and not that much larger than the 14-45 kit lens. Either lens (or both with a small bag) is easy to carry around. OIS works very well and is a big plus when shooting handheld at the longer focal lengths.
I must admit that the G1 appears to be a very competent image maker. I love the color rendition and the sharpness from the kit lens is very unusual for such a low cost item.
Have you tried printing the files yet and if so what is the largest you have done and how did things hold up?
I am going to have to get one of these puppies and both of John's adapters. I can't imagine how good the Leica M primes will hold up given what is possible with the kit lens.
Thanks for the info
While I won't comment individually on all the photos posted on this thread, on the most part the IQ and composition of the photos posted are excellent and some outstanding, with only a few exceptions. Those who posted photos demonstrated both their individual competence and the capability of 4/3rds camera.
Thought i may as well join in the party.
G1 and 14-45 kit lens.
thanks cindy, it was around -25c when shooting outside this afternoon.
the g1 performed flawlessly.
Took the G1 into Yosemite yesterday, just dorking around a bit. These with the 14-45...
Lovely Shots all! Here are some leftover Christmas Decorations....
