    A couple of legacy lens shots...

    This one, an experiment shooting through a reflective window - used the B&W Grainy Art Filter for this low contrast original.

    E-P1 + Hexanon 57mm f1.2
    1/80s f/1.2 iso200


    A rock climber, between heats in a bouldering competition.
    E-P1 + Hexanon 135mm f2.5
    1/160s f/2.5 iso400


    Cheers

    Beautiful light in both of these Brian.

    Although I sometimes internally knock at the idea of art filters, the results are sometimes terrific. I'm warming to the idea day by day. It's really no different than something like Alien Skin Exposure, which I use regularly. Does Olympus software let you apply art filters during RAW conversion?

    iso 1250, pushed to iso 2500 on camera raw

    Thanks Amin, yes - I think of Art Filters as just a canned style... which I always apply to the raw image in Olympus Studio - they are way too slow for my liking in camera... each shot would take a number of seconds to write in camera.

    Cheers

    pics

    Ok, I'm no pro, so forgive me.

    First Picture - Taken at an art gallery.
    Oly Kit, 42mm, f5.6 ISO 200, 1/6s

    Second Picture - Snow from weekend before last here in Alabama
    Oly Kit, 17mm, f5.6, 1/1000, ISO 200

    Third Picture - A tree with a few colored leaves left
    Oly Kit, Pop Art Filter

    Last Picture - Taken at night..kinda foggy. This is actually one of those bushes that produce the long white stems. There is a huge gold halogen light giving off the gold cast. I think its an interesting photo.
    Oly Kit, 42mm, f5.6, 4s

    Greetings from Hellsinsky

    E-P1, 9-18 mm, 1/180 f 5.6

    They said that they were the only "originals" in Hellsinsky (Read Helsinki).

    Cheers,

    E-P1 images

    Really enjoying the E-P1 ...great portability, very pleased with results so far - especially jpeg colour rendition, best I've come across. A few images here :

    Those are very nice, Nick. Which lens did you use? Are these jpegs?

    Both are from raw, developed by Olympus Studio - the first using the Olympus B&W Grainy Art Filter. I usually bring my images into Lightzone for final levels adjustment, shadow enhancement and scaling - but with the Grainy Art Filter, I scale using Olympus Studio.

    I'm thinking of arranging some Safari Group events next year where we can work through our processing workflow in person. All Safari Group events are free.

    Cheers

    Thanks, Brian. The second shot is among the best I've seen from the E-P1. I mean you got the shadows/highlights, composition, etc just perfect. It even looks like it was taken with a larger sensor camera.
    I'de love to take part in one of your safaris...but unless you're planning to do one in the beaches of Barcelona it will be kind of difficult for me to attend ;-)

    It's in my long term plan to return to Barcelona :biggrin: but in the meantime, if you ever visit the UK - please do drop me a line and we'll arrange a top welcome :drinks:

    Cheers

    Thanks - it's 14-42 & jpegs ...have so far been very impressed by the general output quality, and especially the Olympus colour rendition in jpegs - takes me back to the great colours from an old C8080WZ I used some time ago (now on loan to a friend) - a camera I enjoyed apart from its awkward UI ....oh, and it's just about the ugliest camera out there !

    And if anyone thinks E-P1 is slow....
