    Lots of color in those shots... Higher ISO looks pretty clean!

    Nothing artistic, having fun playing with the new toy. All with the 20mm.

    I would love to know where this was taken and how those kids look like.

    Kids love Brussel sprouts?

    Vivek, my thoughts exactly. But if I am not mistaken, that is the Pike Place Market in Seattle.

    Ranger, you may not come to my house and teach my kids tricks! But maybe we can go to my sister's house...

    Vivek: It is the Pike Place Market in Seattle. My kid didn't love brussels sprouts; but, I've loved them since I was a kid (w/butter and wine vinegar). My wife makes me eat them in another room. Cheers.

    Nice photos. That appears to be an excellent, versatile, lens. Looks like Halloween's coming. Cheers.

    Try them like this:

    1. Prepare sprouts (make a cross-cut in the stem and peel any rough looking leaves).

    2. Boil for 15 minutes

    3. Saute in butter in a hot pan until they begin to turn brown and then coat them with Italian Bread Crumbs, continue to saute for a few minutes.

    4. Serve and then grate fresh nutmeg over them and then fresh parmigiana cheese on top.

    Happy eating and snapping!

    I like brussel sprouts. My mother got us to eat them by calling them little cabbages LOL (funny story John). Harder to grow in my garden here (SE US) but I try about every other year--early Spring or Fall.

    Thanks for the recipes above.

    This is the best colour shot I've seen yet from the GF1 - any tips/settings on how you got this quality?

    Well Done, and thanks for sharing.

    Yes, the cross cut and peeling are very important, that's what I always do.
    A photoforum turning into a cooking site, I like that.
    Thanks for the recipe!

    Re: GF1 Images/Pics/Photos Thread

    Another sprout eater here (and Matt, yes, similar fate with me as well. ).

    My usual prep (recipe) is quite similar to Simon's but no nutmeg and no butter.

    Something along this line: http://vegetarian-recipes.suite101.c.../cabbage_curry

    Despite my great culinary skills, I am yet to entice my 9 year old with a sprout dish. Still a big challenge.

    You folks are killing me with the Brussel Sprouts. I can't get get near them never mind eat them. About the only thing normal i won't eat. Maybe my mother stuffed them down my throat once to often. Yuk

    Now, now. What are we photographers supposed to be good at? Colour interpretation. Bet if you dyed the sprouts in a different colour to "boring" (in child's view) green you'd be well on the way

    I feel the same about lima beans--or any 'squishy' bean like 'butter beans' LOL. I can't even sit at a table with them on it. My brother and I used to hide peas and limas under anything on the plate--and pretend to eat 'just a couple' as my mother would say.

    HOoo-----here in the states a couple of years ago they managed to make 'green' catsup for the kids---for fun, so maybe its the novelty that would get them.

    Too funny Diane . I bet we all have those same childhood dinner table stories about getting rid of stuff you don't want to eat. LOL

    Even the dog would not go for the Brussel sprouts

    Seriously, that is a darn nice snap. No black and white and no people in sight. Nice street shot!

    [If I start yakking about cooking, it will never stop..simply because I am better at it. Apart from the color, the smell, the taste and the after taste of a dish would determine whether one would continue to like it or not. There are simple things that can be done while cooking (this is extraordinarily complex chemistry, btw) to get the unappealing "Brussel sprout" note to something that is palatable. Same goes for texture. Overcook it and it is like a wet paper napkin.

    Those struggling with beans- hint- a dash of Cumin seeds gently crushed counters that "beany" flavor. How well it is applied would keep everything in balance.

    If any of you folks try Spinach the way I can make (in many different ways) would look at it more fondly, the next time you hear that name!]

    Beans--I actually think its the texture that gets me--and the smell LOL--not sure--probably some 'kid' memories somewhere in there. I like black beans, grow the French version of green beans (Haricort Vert) and pick very very small--so beans are okay--just not those firm on the outside, squishy in the middle beans

    I love spinach--we eat it quite a lot but you can tell how you prepare.

    (Hasn't this turned into the strangest sort of thread )

    Dip them in chocolate, then a good coating of batter and deep fry . . . He will eat at least one.

    I have just returned from Rome, where I had the best spinach in my life, and my wife agreed with me - we eat spinach a lot. This was so delicate and soft it virtually melted in your mouth. I think you have to start off with good spinach - which Europe has.

    Okay someone needs to start a thread in the Sunset Bar on this food subject , that could be a whole lot of fun. Than if possible with pictures show your work of art. I like nothing better than being a Italian boy that loves to eat.

    Brian, thanks (on behalf of the camera). I went to the file in Lightroom 2 to see what I did. That's the Panasonic RW2 RAW file with a few minor tweaks in Lightroom 2 only.
    I did the following:
    1. took the picture in aperture priority
    2. imported into Lightroom 2
    2. white balance: as Shot
    3. exposure: 0.00
    4. recovery: +5
    5. blacks +12
    6. clarity: +17
    7. vibrance: +7
    8. sharpening: 38
    9. post-crop: -7
    10. all other Lightroom 2 settings standard upon import
    11. exported as jpeg and uploaded to zenfolio

    As you can see, very little was done to the photo. The camera and lens are very competent! Cheers.

    Re: GF1 Images/Pics/Photos Thread

    I like both the picture of the sprouts and the sprouts them selfs .....

    The camera seems to be doing a super job. Can anyone on the thread give some comparisions how the GF-1 shoots relative to a film Leica?

    I have shot the G1, and it's just not the same, not really better or worse, but diffirent.

    Thanks Matt, I don't have the GF1 - and don't use Lightroom but hopefully your tips will help someone who does.

    I'd be keen to know too. Haven't got the GF-1 (yet) and I can understand how the G1 files are "different" (sic) as opposed to film, although in my case the film is shot through Nikon lenses on an F3 so it's not quite what's wanted here.

    I do still find that film has more dynamic range. Please take this as an entirely personal opinion and in no way an invitation to start or rather continue the much thrashed topic of film vs digital.

    Brian: You're welcome. I didn't remember what I'd done and was surprised that it hadn't gone back and forth between Lightroom, Photoshop, LightZone, and assorted Nik software products that I use (or abuse).

    djonesll: My M7 was recently sold. I have to admit that I never shot a roll of color film with it.

    Re: GF1 Images/Pics/Photos Thread

    Here's one of my first with the GF1 and the 20mm. This is from RAW, through ACR and I sharpened it in Topaz Detail. The lens is lovely, with an amazingly narrow DOF at f1.7.

    Simon, Your flower is really beautiful. I love the DOF that you acheived. It is just perfect.

    Very nice flower. Exquisitely shallow DOF. Cheers.

    Terry, Cindy and Matt,

    Thanks for the kind comments. Actually, I'm surprised at the DOF on this one. I wasn't expecting to see it this shallow. It certainly reaffirms my decision to finally ditch my larger gear and go with the M4/3s exclusively. I'm very, very pleased.

    Cheers,

    Lovely--the flower photo. For all the who-ha about m4/3rds, when one can turn out photos like that, it does start to make one think twice about sticking with larger gear.

    Nice example of bokeh too Simon, I'd love this lens scaled up to 60mm f1.2

    Cheers

    Re: GF1 Images/Pics/Photos Thread

    Some very nice photos in this thread.

    Although... a part of me wants to say "That's it? That's all you got?" I am seriously on the sidelines when it comes to 4/3 cameras and wandered over here to see what all the fuss is about. I now have a better understanding of various vegetable aversions, but I find myself wanting to see more photos taken with this new breed of camera.

    I grew up loving every vegetable, maybe an odd kid in that respect, and it wasn't uncommon for me to ask for more. I'll repeat that request here, replacing images for sprouts while asking, "can I have some more please?"

    Diane,

    Thanks! Glad you liked it.

    Brian,

    Wouldn't that be nice! At this point, I think my travel kit will be the GF1 with the 20mm and my CV 50mm f1.5 and CV 90mm f3.5 lenses. Small, great optics, great camera. In fact, I'm seriously considering having two GF1s and keeping my GH1 for more demanding video work.

    Cheers,

    I have too many to post here, but you can find a page on my website that has images made with the G1 and GH1 cameras:

    ...and I'll be adding to my gallery of E-P1 + 20mm f1.7 images here.

    Cheers

    Wonderful collection Simon. I especially like the shot of the small island just offshore with the tree emerging from the mist. Thanks!

    Thanks! Scenes like that remind me of a line in Yes' song Roundabout: "Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there". It's landscapes like that that keeps me on the West coast.

    Thanks for that link Brian. Some nice work there as well.

    Based exclusively on the images posted on your site and Simon's, my preliminary impression is that the G1-GH-1 has a slight edge over the EP-1. (It's a bit difficult to say for sure since Simon has applied some post processing to many of his shots.) But would you say that's a fair assessment?

    That's an unfair question really. It would be better to compare my E-P1 gallery to my G1 gallery - takes the differences in skill/scenery/post processing out of the equation.

    Here's my G1 example gallery.

    Cheers

    Brian
