    My Name is Oz, and I am in Orange County, CA.
    Just wanted to introduce myself.

    I have been a Nikon shooter for the past 4-5 years, and owned several different bodies and lenses. My favorite was the D700, and the last camera body I had was a D90.

    I just wanted a smaller setup and bought the E-PL1 last week with the kit lens. I have the 20mm on order, and also considering the 45-200mm and the 9-18mm as a wide angle.

    So far I am trying out the settings, and learning all the menus, etc. I will post more photos, but here are a few.

    Vivid with gradation set to Normal works the best for me for scenery, etc.

    Welcome Oz! I think Vivid works well for the kinds of scenes you do. Congratulations on branching out to :43: and thanks so much for posting all three of these photos. That first one makes me wistful for the beach, in particular.

    I look forward to your getting involved in the different forums. I have to tell you that the 9-18mm is amazing, and so is the 20mm...but for me the 9-18 is...well, I digress.:wink:

    Thanks for your introduction and glad to have you here!:biggrin:
