    Hi guys I'm flying the flag for our system as my photo below has been selected for the Cork Street Open exhibition in London's Mayfair.

    Here's a link to the exhibition:

    Thanks all. They are showing another of mine but it wasn't shot on a mu-43.

    Good for you! I found so many things that I liked in the first photo - the clouds, the city in the distance, the folks at the picnic table - all going on around the folks in the center. Very nice!

    Matt,
    The second image could have been truly superb if the sandals were not present. It could have been gallery-worthy since it contains elements of the Rule of Thirds, perspective, convergence of lines, depth, and texture.

    The perspective lines truly draws my eyes to the seated man as the focal point; however, the sandals tug on my attention and keeps them there.

    An image on the just the sandals sans the railing, chair, and man could stand on its own as another gallery piece for its thematic element of singularity without resorting to extreme juxtaposition.

    As presented in its current form, that image and processing is well done as a study of contemplation of escapism and should be a benchmark of composition.

    I respect OdBm's opinion, and agree that all "rules" of photography have been met in a dramatic way. However, I like the scandals in the foreground. To me they add a mood: the scandals symbolize the man's attachment to the social structure and were left behind to free him so that he could become one with that beauty of nature. Freedom. I think the photographer made them work in the photo.

    That's what makes that image so good. It can please many observers.

    Thanks for the replies all. The second pic is being shown in the gallery its just not a micro four thirds snap.
    The with/without sandals debate is good and that's what makes photography so great I think. Many things to many people.
    Dezignman, your freedom comment is spot on. I called the photo "Solace"...
