    So I thought I'd post a little set after my first week with my GF2 and P14 f2.5 combo. Bought on impulse as it was so cheap, it turns out I love this camera. It is so much fun to shoot with.

    I'll preface this by saying I'm very much the amateur so these aren't great.

    All but the first one are raw processed in LR4, also a first for me. I may have overdone it in places, but I'm learning as I go and it's easy to get a bit trigger happy with those sliders... :biggrin:

    Thanks, I'm never quite satisfied with anything I shoot, but I guess thats common for a lot of folk.

    Cheers. Original image was pretty flat, so that was my second attempt at using dodge and burn to bring it back (first attempt was way OTT).

    Many great images, thanks for sharing! I just grabbed dixeyk's red GF2 and got some cool images last week (my first week too!), must post a few soon.
