    This is my first portrait of 2010 taken with the 20mm and shot using the square format.

    A few shots from yesterday

    Another very cold day by UK standards, the wind chill added to this but we had some colour in the sky for a change so I wanted to grab a few photos:

    These are great, Ian. Particularly the square one is an classic composition.

    The snow in UK has inspired many, including me. These are GF1 images:

    Thanks

    Hi Eolake,

    Nice images and I particularly like the shadow scene, it is very graphic and works.

    The GF1 is a great machine

    This combination works for me as it is small enough to carry the GF1 + 20mm in one coat pocket and the 14-45mm in the other, if I dod not use them - no problem they are safe and unseen - if I see a scene I like they are readily at hand to "do the business".

    Yes indeed, I like that.

    Some of those above were talken on the way home, walking, from a trip to the dentist, I had brought the GF1 with the 20mm in my thigh pocket.

    Ian, I like the first photograph a lot! What are the animals in the bottom right?

    Eolake, great shadows in the last one. Very strong image.

    Baaaaaaa

    Hi Amin,

    Thanks and I am glad you like them, the first image really appealed to me and I would like to have got closer but the snow was just too deep.

    The animals are sheep that were trying to shelter from the freezing wind.

    I am pleased to see a few more people posting to the site and the growing number of members - well done.:2thumbs:

    Yeah, the long picture reminds me a bit of one of my old faves: one of Bill Brand's. It's vertical, and the lower third is almost all black. The top third is a very heavy rain cloud. And in between are distant hills, with a couple of small woods on them, with all the trunks they sort of look like giant millipedes.

    Saturday morning at the beach, 14-45 lens, waiting for the tide to go down, grabbed a couple more shots of the new bicycle. And yes, it was a great Christmas this year.

    Shutter lag.........what shutter lag!

    Just spent a couple of days away with "Er indoors", the weather was very changeable culminating in very wet and windy so thought I would tryand capture the scene with GF1 + 20mm.

    Works for me and captured exactly as I wanted it to - no lag at all!

    I'm a bit basic, what is vibrance and USM?

    A friends says your pics on the blog are labeled Feb instead of Jan.
    (Do you not have a contact link on the blog?)

    Both of those are terrific, Ian. The timing on the second one and people running makes it extra special :bravo-009:.

    Shutter lag certainly isn't an issue with any of the :43: bodies!

    Love them both but first spotted them on Iansky's album - where I fell head over heels when I saw them and commented almost ad nauseum, I'm afraid.:biggrin:

    Thanks for the welcome. I am so looking forward to getting to know people here and learning as much as possible.

    Have a question anyone answer please:
    Can the GF1 use Canon lens for digital dslr? And if so what adapter would make it work? I have a Canon 50MM and a Sigma 10-20mm F4-F5.6 with a Canon mount. Wondering whether I can adapt them for use on GF1. Any info appreciated.

    Vibrance & USM

    Hi Eolake,

    Sorry for my abbreviations.

    If you select Image/adjustments you have an option to adjust the vibrancy of the photo with two sliders, the lower one allows you to enhace the saturation of the colours in the image and the upper one adjusts the vibrancy of those colours making them look more vibrant without looking false.

    USM is Unsharp Mask, this can be found through Filters/Unsharp Mask, it usually has a preset of around 160 that you may want to try.

    I shoot all my images in RAW so mostly use the Sharpness option in the Adobe Raw Convertor, this I set to 120 - Do not use this and Unsharp mask on the same image though.

    I hope that helps a little and the primary adjustments to make should always be levels and then curves trying to achieve an "S" shaped curve.
