    I purchased an E-PL1 last Thursday and in the weekend I took it with me on a walk across the harbour over here in the Netherlands. Besides the fun of learning about this new cam, I couldn't resist making a few shots and try to make a series of some grainy art-shots with some PP just to see how those would turn out.

    Any comments will be highly appreciated!

    You asked for comments. :biggrin:

    Reminded me of a 1980's song by Barnes and Barnes from their 1980 album "Voobaha"....

    Fish heads fish heads,
    Roly poly fish heads,
    Fish heads fish heads,
    Eat them up yum

    Fish heads fish heads,
    Roly poly fish heads,
    Fish heads fish heads,
    Eat them up yum

    In the morning,
    Laughing happy fish heads,
    In the evening,
    Floating in the soup,

    Fish heads fish heads,
    Roly poly fish heads,
    Fish heads fish heads,
    Eat them up yum

    Ask a fish head,
    Anything you want to,
    They won't answer,
    They can't talk

    Fish heads fish heads,
    Roly poly fish heads,
    Fish heads fish heads,
    Eat them up yum

    I took a fish head,
    Out to see a movie,
    Didn't have to pay
    To get it in

    Fish heads fish heads,
    Roly poly fish heads,
    Fish heads fish heads,
    Eat them up yum

    They can't play baseball,
    They don't wear sweaters,
    There not good dancers,
    They don't play drums

    Fish heads fish heads,
    Roly poly fish heads,
    Fish heads fish heads,
    Eat them up yum

    Roly poly fish heads are never seen
    Drinking cappucino in Italian resturants,
    With oriental women, yeah

    Fish heads fish heads,
    Roly poly fish heads,
    Fish heads fish heads,
    Eat them up yum

    Fish heads fish heads,
    Roly poly fish heads,
    Fish heads fish heads,
    Eat them up yum, (yum!)

    Yea..

    @nokamia & drp : thanks !

    @Narnian: :biggrin: this is very nice, I'm certainly going to look for the mp3 on the net, I'm getting curious to the song itself. Thanks for posting this!

    Thanks and yes I did use the in camera Grainy BW-mode, but added a colour flavour to it and some vignetting as a bonus

    All very nice... although with the art filter, allemaal ziet er en beetje vies uit! "Bleak" is the word I would use in English.
