    Thanks Bhupinder :)  - I love that moment in your lovers picture.

    It was a great day, and I met some really nice people, and I'm so grateful for everyone coming. I am looking forward to the next one. (Thanks for the awesome lunch too!)

    I got to try out the OMD today, it's a great camera.

    Hi all shooters,
    I enjoyed the day, and the camaraderie of the fellow shooters. They were just like old friends and we talked and compared our work in a friendly atmosphere. I'm looking forward to the next photo outing with these shooters. I'll post some of my photos soon too!
    I'm sure David or any other interstate mu43ers would be welcome.

    Thanks for Bhupinder, Melonbread and Dan for their pictures :) 

    I guess it is now my turn to post some. I used some holga and vintage presets for LR4.1 (available for free at PresetsHeaven | Your source to free Lightroom presets)

    Thanks for coming from that far to join us John. I did picked up some tips from you :)  and hope to pick up some more in the future. Good luck with your OS trip. Hope you have some time to post some pictures along the way.

    Not sure what you meant by arrangements, but street shooter presets are installed onto my Lightroom (all photos were shot in RAW on the OMD with the PL25 and processed in lightroom). They are available here.

    Thanks for posting photos Dan & JT - its great to see such different images from the same walk ^_^

    Sorry if I was not clear. What I meant was I did not see a post to organise the street walk. I have not progressed to shoot raw yet but will have to get Lightroom and just dive in. Many thanks.

    Downunderdogs' turn

    Hi shooters,
    just great works above, so my turn. I've chosen my style of photos which are more candid portraits, than the real street shooting style. Hope you enjoy,

    DMC-G1    ---    109mm    f/5.6    1/400s    ISO 1000

    Shot on Flinders Street Station but was warned off, soon after. Apparently no cameras allowed.

    DMC-G1    ---    84mm    f/5.6    1/640s    ISO 100

    Quintessential Melbourne - walking across Princes Bridge with the Melbourne Cricket Ground in the background.

    DMC-G1    ---    56mm    f/5.6    1/1000s    ISO 1000

    While we played some were working. This taxi driver had to carry the bags too!

    DMC-GF1    ---    20mm    f/5.0    1/30s    ISO 800

    The arcades were great to photograph in, but were crowded at times, however this helped the photographers not hindered them.

    DMC-GF1    ---    20mm    f/5.0    1/20s    ISO 800

    Just not into sexy lingerie yet!

    DMC-G1    ---    175mm    f/5.6    1/500s    ISO 1000

    The title says it all. "Where do you keep your lens cap? (Not one of our group - by the way)

    DMC-GF1    ---    20mm    f/5.0    1/13s    ISO 800

    So much rush, but just love the effect the blur causes.

    The majority of these images were shot with a G1 and 45-200 zoom lens, the rest were on my GF1 with 20mm f1.7 lens.

    Loved this one on the day and still do ^_^.

    JT - I love those presets, I must have a fiddle around with them :D 

    To ampl465a, sorry I misunderstood you. Processing in RAW opened a whole new pathway to me - you should try it one day and see what you think, the people on this forum are very helpful as well.
    The day was organised through my "welcome to the forum/introduction" post and just steam rolled from there, but it did take a few months before we finally managed to get everyone together. If you are interested we will PM you next time ^^
