Was playing around a bit today with my newish Pen-F, experimenting with the camera's monochrome mode as well as with a square frame.

I was going for an abstract quality with most of these.

I've concluded that when used this way, especially with the O17 f/1.8 mounted, the camera is basically an Olympus X100F.

C&C welcome.

Nice series. The low exposure gives a gloomy feeling that goes well together with an abandoned office. At the same time I wonder how some of these photos would turn out with a bit higher exposure...

Good thought. I didn't really notice that they're all a bit dark. I was mostly just looking for textures.

These are JPEGs straight out of camera. I may pull some of these into LR and see if bumping up the exposure a bit makes a difference in that gloomy mood.

A great set, especially numbers 2,3,6 and 7 are kind of my style to be honest. I also tend to underexpose with my Pen-F, especially using Monochrome mode, at the same time however, I actually enjoy a bit moore gloomy or moody/gritty look in my images, which is something Mono2 with some grain added is pretty good at.
The Pen-F and the 17mm f1.8 are really made for each other, no wonder Olympus initially choose to make a kit with both pieces of equipment: It's compact, pretty light, feels high-quality and matches each other well.
