    Very cool shots, Devon. I like the second one in particular.

    Here's another one taken with the Oly 510

    Devon,

    I've been shooting with the Lumix 20mm f1.7 since it was released - so this shot really stands out for the 35mm fov - I love it! time to get the 17mm f2.8 out again I think!

    Well Done, and thanks for sharing

    Cheers

    Very nice. Interesting subject, nice B&W treatment and composition. If I have one nit it's perhaps a tad over burned on the edges and not quite bright enough in the center, but might be a result of the web jpegging.

    I like this one a lot too. GREAT composition and nice B&W treatment. I brought it into CS and burned the bench down to more the level of the tree and like it better -- you might want to try for yourself and see what you think, clearly a personal choice. Any way, nice work!

    Thank-you, Jack. Yeah, I probably overdid the edges. I do most of my editing on a system that matches my printer, but most of my web surfing and correspondence on a notebook that has a rather typical TN screen from about 3 years ago, and limited adjustment. Sometimes I look at my shots on the laptop and wince, but know that I can get a pretty good print.

    I found the subject tree very interesting, but struggled with getting the kind of separation from the background that I wanted. In this neck of the woods (and in this season) there is just so much detail fighting for attention (this was the 20mm at f/2 BTW). So it's nice to know that others might find the result interesting. Thanks for commenting!
    Best regards,
    John.

    Thanks Tullio.

    Brian, thanks for the nice comment. I've actually just started using the 17mm again over the last few days. I took it as my only lens on a 73 mile backpacking trip over the summer and since then have been using primarily only legacy lenses (50mm, 85mm, and 135mm) and the 14-42 for studio work. Starting to use it again has certainly renewed my appreciation for the wider view of the world it offers. I'm a high school student and currently working on my portfolio for AP Studio Art so all comments are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Jack. I am getting better at composition and this is one of my favorite shots. I do this shot over and over with slight variations searching for the perfect one. I love the combination of the old and new bridges and the angle between them.

    My next aim is to do it with a friend of mine sitting on the bench wearing a black and white dress. It will work well in both colour and black and white. I need a still night and would prefer a bit of low cloud or cloud and moonlight too.

    I am quite a lazy photographer when it comes to post-processing fiddling about. I haven't got the hang of working with RAW or doing my own noise reduction. I simply cannot achieve the quality of what comes out of the box with the E-P1.

    I would be interested in seeing what you have done with the photo. Can I have a link please?

    Cheers

    Peter

    Very nice picture, Brian.

    BTW, the EP-1 w/ the ZD 17mm and an EVF is going for just $760 on Amazon, down from $899. It won't last long, I'm sure.

    Thanks Tullio,

    the advanced CA correction in Capture One v5 PRO really improves the 17mm f2.8 IQ - that would make a great street shooting combination.

    Cheers

    Finally got around to stitching this. Took it over the summer right after getting my E-P1.
    Using 17mm pancake.

    Wow! fantastic - the scaling seems to have oversharpened it though.

    Yes, but from what I've seen, the Lumix 20mm is a superior lens (of course it costs more...)

    Matt, I really love this capture - for me, the arrangement of people within the scene reflects the 'performance' aspect of the musician, and the preparation for performance of the guy on the left...

    Just wonderful! thanks for sharing.

    Cheers

    No she didn't seem to be a big fan of the pho we had to eat.
    I thought it was worthwhile though for those above photographs..

    I don't blame her...I haven't developed the taste for it either. Those are great shots, though.
