    First off, happy new year everyone!

    I was very happy to get some new toys for Christmas (G5, Oly 75mm) but have been so busy with work and being sick, that I have not really gotten to use them much. :(

    Last weekend however, I did manage to stop by Yates Mill, a local historic site. I brought my trusty G2 along with the G5 and a few lenses. I shot RAW with the G2 and JPEG with the G5. I processed to enhance the historical feel and to bring out those wonderful textures. I took a lot of pics with windows. I just love the juxtaposition with the smooth glass against the weathered wood!

    Panny 14mm: I really like this first one.

    Oly 75mm: Not just for portraits!

    PL 25mm: My usual favorite lens got the least use. *shrug*

    Thanks RevBob, I really really like those two. Shot with the older G2 body actually.

    I must agree with others. Best is 4th, it has most feel inside and second best is 3rd which is like from some slasher movie :)

    Nice work Vincent. I'll echo the others and hit favorite on 3 & 4.
    Great PP all round but I do like shadow and central lighting on the house in 3, also dig how the longer focal length compression worked here.

    Live the contrast of old textured timber and glass in 4...the reflections of the branches really make it.

    Have fun with the new gear mate.
