    Life Between The Lines

    I was informed last Friday that I had won a public photography competition run by London Underground (the operators of the 'Tube') and the Royal Society for the Proctection of Birds (RSPB). The theme of the competition was to 'capture' wildlife anywhere within the area covered by London Underground.

    The picture which brought me this accolade is below but the interest for this section of the forum is that it was shot with my GF-1 and the PanaLeica 45/2.8. I submitted a hi-res version of the photo which will be printed in a local London paper, the Metro, tomorrow (Tuesday) on the TFL page. I was very impressed with how good the hi-res version looked.

    All in all a great win for m4/3rds, Panasonic and the Leica 45/2.8

    Congratulations on the publication of your image.
    I can easily see why it was chosen.

    Congrats for the great picture and award. I always believed in the 45/2.8 as one of best portrait/macro lenses in any format.

    Wow! Thanks for all the positive responses. I was not just beating my chest about winning, I think it is great that an image from a m4/3rds camera can make an impact in this way. It will be interesting to see how it reproduces in the paper and I'll post a link so people can see the online edition.

    Thanks again

    From memory only a couple of inches. You can read about how I took the shot at my blog.

    Thanks again for all the positive comments.
