    +1 - count me in!

    Has anyone asked about your workflow in PP. These are wonderfully vibrant and sharp images

    Very nice shots. I would prefer a little more sky & less foreground in #1 which is my fav of the set.
    Panasonic G1 & GF1 bodies, Panasonic 14-45, 45-200mm, various Minolta, Pentax, Canon FD, M39 & M42 mount lenses.

    Big thanks to pellicle, Michiel, woodmancy & Ron for your kind words, much appreciated.

    woodmancy asked " Has anyone asked about your workflow in PP. "

    Not that I remember woodmancy, but no dark secrets or applications of pixie dust just a generous sprinkling of PS as required ! maybe a touch of extra saturation, a shot of contrast where needed, a liberal dose of selective sharpening. Each image treated individually and PP'd by 'eye'. As you state I tend to prefer my pictures with strong colours, contrast that 'bites' and decent sharpness. Hopefully pictures that 'PoP'

    Very nice! But the Rough Seas image is absent to my viewing.

    I have waffled back and forth on getting the 45-200, but of late, I really think I could put that lens to good use from time to time. The IQ really is very nice! Thanks for posting these.
