    Just a couple taken on my way back from playing racquetball up the other side of town. We usually finish late - after having supper and a couple of beers.

    Took my tripod and Epl1 along with me and stopped by the Torrens river.
    Shot these with the 4/3 14-54mm lens. Processed in the new Topaz Adjust 5 (first time trying it out and I like it)

    The King William Street Bridge

    And looking across the Torrens to the Festival Theatre Centre

    Beautiful and I will shoot similar ones in Melb soon
    Anyway I always wanted to buy this 4/3 14-54mm lens and I am leaning more towards it.

    Great shots.
    The second one if perfect, the first shot is a little "milky" at the bottom and right you can try increase contrast in order to get it sharper.

    Hi RetroBoy

    Nice pics, I have similar ones with this bridge, just maybe from the other side of it. :)
    Didn't know there are any users in Adelaide.

    Here're a couple of my photos from CBD.

    Thanks for the bump guys!
    Been a while since I've been on here...

    Hi oto
    Yeah there must be a few of us lurking around Adelaide with our Pens.
    Still love my gear (E-PL2 nowadays). Especially when coupled with old manual lenses.

    Although I have the Panny 20, as do you I see. I like your shots and your processing too.
    Not familiar with any of those sites though - where's the Historian pub?

    Enjoy your summer in Adelaide, it's a great time of year to be here.
    I'll have to process and upload a few more shots now...
