    Wow....stunning images from a beautiful place. They are all amazing shots. Just goes to show how in the right hands, first generation mu43 equipment and even a first generation kit zoom can produce such impressive results. Shot #8 looks surreal.....it kinda looks tiltshift-esque !!!!

    If this the quality of your work...please post more :)

    Genijalno !

    Gorgeous.

    On #2 did you add some vignetting?

    How are you doing the post processing?

    Loved them, especially the old boardwalk in #2, and the leaves / water / boardwalk shot and the waterfall!

    My only criticism is I found the first one a bit dull and not a good lead in as pretty much the rest were stunning :)

    Fantastic set of images! Thanks for sharing.

    I would agree that #1 is maybe not the strongest opening image... #2 would be more interesting for me.

    Just had another look, REALLY like this set. Love #5 more and more....the tones, the division of space and lines between the old weathered boards, the clear water and fallen leaves is a pleasure to look at.

    I know Croatia is an incredibly photogenic place, but you've done it justice with these shots.

    Love the pics, #6/7/9/10 are great. Last time I was there was in 1986... It's about time to visit again!

    I like many of them very much, nice eye and great colors. Not sure about 1 and 3 though.

    Filip, those are great shots that make me want to visit Croatia again. Last time I was there I didn't make it to Plitvice Lakes, but next time I will make sure to visit the place.

    During summer be prepared for crowds - autumn is much better time for visit. The biggest fall may be a bit disappointing when there's not enough water but still seems interesting. I suggest visiting Krka falls as well - Roski Slap looks great. As for pictures the only thing I see missing is that great color and clarity of water - it's really astonishing

    On second, third, and the "deck" one - yeah.
    Vibrant settings on G1 + playing with levels to achieve the look I prefer....oh, custom WB and crop.

    Why not ;) If you need a guide, lemme know.

    Agreed.

    True that.

    You might seen this one before on mu-43:
    500px / Photo "Gem" by F1L1P

    The view is similar to the second one in here.

    Thanks. Another question, what did you do the adjustments in?

    Lightroom? PS? Some other tool?

    Corel Paint Shop PRO, but those adjustments could have been made in Lightroom too.

    Really enjoyable set. I especially liked #2 & #10 - loved the mixture of tones and textures in #10

    Nice pictures..the G1 is still a very capable camera! What sort of PP did you use?

    brightness, contrast, vigneting, custom wb, crop + vibrant settings in G1.
    Oh, on 3rd one from bottom - tilt shift effect, cause too much grass distracted attention from the waterfall.

    One more:
