    My E-P3 arrived a couple of weeks ago and because the weather has been so poor around here I wasn't able to get out with it to shoot any images until last weekend when I managed to go into Holmfirth which is a 10 minute drive from where I live.

    For those who don't know, Holmfirth was the location for a long running (29 years!) UK TV series Last Of The Summer Wine.

    These images are a mixed bag as I was just getting the feel of the camera, so they are really no more than a collection of "pot boilers".

    Please feel free to comment on the images and thanks to all for taking the time to look

    Firstly, 2 mono shots:

    Thanks - I find I'm shooting more and more mono myself, too. The originals are RAW files converted in Nik Silver Efex (brilliant plug-in!).

    Briggs & Oliver was tweaked in Topaz Adjust 5 which has jus been released and a major improvement on V4

    Great shots, I've had my ep3 only a few weeks and aside from the autumn shots think most of mine end up going through silver efex!

    I hope you're enjoying the E-P3 as much as I am. My problem at present is that I'm so busy with other photo projects that I can't seem to match good lighting conditions with occasions when I've an hour or two to go shoot some images! No doubt that will change but at present it's very frustrating!

    Hey-ho, I guess everything comes to he who waits.

    Peter, I am in the same boat. Can't complain really, have a few portrait sessions booked in for November around a full time job and two children.. :smile:

    My next task is to install the olympus software and shoot a few RAW to really see what this camera can do. I don't want to mess up upgrading Lightroom until my year's paid shooting is done in a few weeks, call me paranoid!

    I know what you mean about upgrading Lightroom. I currently use CS4 - I've downloaded the Adobe DNG Converter to convert the Olympus Raw files to DNG format - it works well and is a fairly quick addition to my workflow.

    I had intended to wait for CS6 and then upgrade from CS4, but Adobe's recent announcement that they will only allow upgrades to CS6 from CS5 has "thrown a spanner in the works"! I've still not decided what to do yet.:confused::confused:
