    Way up there.
    I took these photos a while back.
    The first one is my cat (1 of 2) which was taken by the EPM-1 with the kit lens with these settings:
    F 3.5, 1/60, iso 400, 14mm
    the next photo was taken this summer of my second cat with the exact same camera/lens. these are the settings used: F 5.6, 1/100, iso 200, 40mm.
    and finally, a blue jay eating peanuts. Settings used: F 5.6, 1/100, iso 200, 42mm.
    that's all. only editing done was cropping. I cropped the way i thought the photos should be. If you have any criticisms, just comment.

    Very nice! I love the angle on the first and the colors in the second. I think the third is a little under-exposed. :cool:

    Thanks for the advice. I am having a lot of problems getting exposure right on photos out my window of birds. Any tips?

    I am pretty sure that they peck them open. I guess they hold it in their beak and hit it repeatedly on something. I am sure they do, because if they didn't they wouldn't keep coming back!
