First outing with the E-PL1 / Pany 20mm. Would like to hear your thoughts!

If that is your son, you are truly a lucky father! This is a lovely portrait of a young boy entranced. The light is really nice the way it hugs his profile, as he sits with his his (favorite?) stuffed animals, completely oblivious to everything but what's going on on stage. I also like the fact that the two people in the background are still just visible enough for us to see them - another parent, perhaps, who seems to be looking in your direction while her little boy sits in rapt attention, just as yours is. Beautiful!

The two of the stage and its characters also worked out very nicely - I'm not sure if this is the toy camera setting or the diorama, but it is just right!

My only complaint is that I wish we could see them much larger because I think they're worth it - especially that portrait.:bravo-009:

Perhaps my view is colored by the fact that my "child" is now 20, but I don't think that's it - I think the innocence you've captured would be clear to anyone with eyes.

Thanks! Yes he's my son!
No settings, just 'P' mode set to natural. I did crop and add a slight vignette in LR though. So I guess the shots aren't 'pure'. The portrait shot was jiggled with a little to get rid of some noise.

Excellent photo of your son. I think that is what the E-PL1 is all about, grabbing a great shot in adverse conditions. Camera manufacturers put a lot of development dollars into the on board computers to calculate exposures. This is the perfect time to use the P mode. Nicely done.
