    Very nice exposures, especially #1 & 2. I have this same camera and lens and have really enjoyed it.

    Thanks for sharing. Gives me a dilemma! Should I go for the 20mm, 45-200 or the 100-300. Too many choices. :smile:

    Did you do any post production work? If so, what kind? Did you use RAW as the base or jpg?

    I love the colors on the first one, especially.

    G'day Ian, I'm loving the 1st one. Is this just before the sun goes down behind the horizon (golden hour) ?

    Nice crop btw.

    Some really nice work. Gives me hope that with some experience, my GF1 will be able to turn out stuff like this.

    If you did, I'd like to see what the originals looked like and what you did to them. I feel like i'm not able to get as much as I can out of my pictures in Lightroom. Some of them look great OOC, but there are a lot that I feel have more potential that I can't seem to extract from them.

    20mm, but it depends on what you want to shoot.

    Generally though, I think lenses like the 20mm bring out the best of m4/3rds. If you want to do tele with 4/3rds, you're going to get better results with something like the E-30 and the 50-200mm, and maybe a 1.4x or 2x TC if you need the extra reach and don't mind losing the f stops.

    Thanks all for the feedback.
    I shoot all my images in Raw and process in Photoshop.
    My normal processing is:
    Contrast / Curves / Colour / Levels - if I feel the image needs it I will add a little vibrance and finally add Unsharp Mask before adding a border and saving.

    I try and shoot all my images at base ISO and use Aperture Priority and minus 1/3rd EV.
