    There aren't many cloud where I live. But man, do they ever change the view when they finally do get a chance to roll on in.

    My little E-PL3 continues to please with the pancake lens options

    These are composites of three bracketed, handheld images using the auto bracket feature.

    I know HDR images aren't for everyone, but I couldn't resist with clouds like this.

    95% of what I shoot is HDR, mostly with my E-P1 and E-PL2. They work great for it, as long as you use shoot manual mode to get the full dynamic range.

    Very nice - HDR is a great tool when not overdone. You have a good feel for it.

    Yeah. I like trying to mimic the curves my eyes see. Thanks for the compliment :)

    Wait... I need to know what you know about how using manual mode gives you the full dynamic range...

    Can you explain?

    Amazing photos!

    Kudos for not over-saturating them, like many others who believe that's what "HDR" is.

    Those are great thanks for sharing, I need to try out the bracketing on my PL3.
