    Hey everyone, I just got my E-PL1 recently as a more compact companion to my EOS 5D. I am new to this forum, so I figured I would start off my posts by sharing a few shots from a trip I took this weekend. Hope you guys like them!

    nice shots of the city, the flatiron building is a classic and the BW rendition works really well for the subject.

    Agreed, that building is stunning. A real timeless looking photograph.
    Love the squirrel too!

    I think the moral of the posting isn't the camera that takes the picture..rather it is the person behind the camera that takes the picture. You have really illustrated that very well. Thanks for posting!

    I've seen several photographs of the Flatiron building over the years. I think that's the first that puts it into context with it's surroundings. I wonder if you get a strange feeling as you walk down a corridor to the end of the taper, most unusual?

    That's no way to use an angle-grinder!

    I do like them. Sometimes it takes a visitor to capture what we see everyday and make it interesting!

    I love the first and third. The flatiron shot is really timeless. Its been done before, but that's a really good one.
