    Hello all.

    Just purchased my first camera (Oly EM1) and learning how to use it.
    Complete beginner, but loving what I have captured to date. Experimenting and really need to learn how to process in PS.

    My first long exposure last night at 30sec, f13, 12mm:
    Lutana.

    Welcome, and that looks like Hobart. Tasmania has to be the most photogenic place in Australia (lost count of how many times I've visited). If one can't take amazing photos there, one should give up photography.

    Thank you.

    Certainly is - under the Tasman bridge, Hobart. My photography will most commonly be landscapes and nature - beautiful surroundings here indeed.

    thanks for the feedback.
    not on Flickr, no.

    Going to get out on some bushwalks soon, so I guess I need to learn the photoshop basics quickly.
