    Thanks, Don. That's just about the best compliment I've ever received. There wouldn't happen to be a Leica in it for me, would there?

    What Shooter said, Steve.

    If that's your daughter, she will thank you for that photograph one day. Her innocence, her fascination and the newness of her life are all there. Well done.:bravo-009:

    Thanks, BBW and Brian. Actually Abby is a friend's daughter. We went to a restaurant a couple of days after I bought my GF1 and of course, I brought the camera with me. This aquarium overlooks the dining area and we couldn't keep Abby away from it.

    Well then Abby's parents must surely want a copy! It's priceless. Good for you for seeing her wonder and capturing a moment of it.

    Scoutpro, I really would love to see those photos you posted in a larger size. Maybe you could upload them into an album on here in a larger size or post them again? They look good but I can't see enough... Maybe it's just me, but I really like to see larger versions so I can bask in the details.

    Andy, those are very psychedelic, trippy carousel photos!:biggrin:

    Today

    Thanks Amin, it certainly makes me glad I invested in the GF1 + 20mm as I now always have it with me!

    Managed to grab 4 keepers today, posted 2 on the 20mm post and here are the other 2.

    I have added a larger border following a post about frames, I want to see if the larger frame keeps the eye on the image for longer so would appreciate feedback.

    Thanks,
    Ian

    I like the frames.
    Maybe try with less bold text, and a light-grey frame, maybe zone 7 or so. I find that helps the highlights. (Too dark is too heavy, I think.)

    I agree with Eolake's observations - these give more focus to the image. As usual, nice work Ian.

    Cheers

    I didn't know about the Raynox DCR-250, it looks kewl. Economical too.

    Does it preserve IQ pretty well?
