    That is such a clean crisp sharp shot. I know you use a Oly E-P1 but what lens do you use? I have seen some of your Flickr shots and they are also super crisp! What's your secret??????:smile:

    Thanks for those very kind comments, Andy.
    This shot was taken with the 14-42 kit lens, but I also now own the Olympus 14-54 MK2 & the Panasonic 20 1.7.

    I'm sometimes accused of "oversharpening"........so I'm trying to be more careful lately :smile:
    I only use Picasa for PP............works for me:smile:

    Other than that........I have no "secret"................some just turn out better than others :thumbup:

    Really like this one, too, mo ho and I think whatever it is you did works perfectly with this story book church. Love that sky behind that brilliantly bright white church!

    So are your shots taken on a tripod/monopod or were they hand held? I don't think I have ever seen such high quality images from a E-P1 before!

    Thanks very much, Andy. All my shots so far have been hand held. It's the E-PL1 that I have IO seems to work pretty well for me though :)
    I appreciated your very much comments................moho.

    Nice composition and it has the successful use of bright whites and dark blacks for a nice range (one of the key components in B&W shots imo). Cool shot.
