    Your Top m4/3 Picture of 2009

    Please enter only one (per photographer) photo taken in 2009 with a m4/3 camera. I know it is hard.

    Here is ours (Bettina + Uwe)



    Olympus E-P1

    Terry chose the right one!

    Here is mine, but only after a lot of angst.

    G1 with Oly 9-18.

    Happy New Year, Terry! Your eight-second exposure image of Sutro Baths is truly fantastic. As a former resident of the Bay Area, your beautiful image brought back fond memories of San Francisco. Kind regards, Leica 77.

    LisaR, great shot. Just one tip: Try to blur the grass in the background.

    ooh that does look better thank you!

    I usually forget about blurring backgrounds in PP, but this remonds me that sometimes it does help the shot.

    In this case the busy grass ruins the shot.

    Terrific thread so far!

    Uwe, I really like that one. Wonderful geometry and colors.

    Lisa, I think yours is great as well, and the grass doesn't so much bother me.

    Here's my pick:



    We should have another thread for our second favorite m4/3 picture of 2009

    Yes, it's very difficult.
    Very nice pictures in this thread.
    I'll try with one of my most recent pics.
    Panasonic GF1 with 2o mm.

    I wish you all a happy new year.

    Nice shots everyone. I've only had mine for a week, so, not much to choose from. GF1 20 1.7. Happy New Year.









    P.S. I'm turning over a new leaf today and I'm not going to stir up stuff on Internet forums this year.No really, I mean it, that's my new years resolution. I truly hope that everyone has a wonderful year.

    Hello My Friend Michiel,

    I really like the wide perspective on your image entitled, "On the Steps". The clarity and sharpness are truly outstanding. All the best for the New Year! Leica 77.

    oh there have been so many...its been a big learning year this year. I will go with the last 4/3 shot i took this year. Have just got a Canon 5d mk2 and I am getting to grips with that at the moment, but I am sure i will atill find time for the e-p1 and the 510

    But this is a shot with an E-p1 and a zuiko 24/2 that I like.

    happy new year everyone

    Re: Your Top m4/3 Picture of 2009

    Thanks Uwe and Keith.
    And Keith, I wouldn't spend too much time with double exposures in camera. It works once in a while, but you can do the same thing better with layers in Photoshop. It is useful in that it gives you an idea at the time of shooting if it is a good subject for the layered look.

    cheers
    Mike
