    A few days ago the snow finally started falling in the middle parts of Sweden. So I ignored my cold and went outside, for the first time carrying my E-PL1 together with the Panny 20/1,7. I'm a total rookie, but I was kind of satisfied with some photos, but i would LOVE some comments, constructive critisism and tips on both taking the photos and post-processing. Hope you'll enjoy some of them!

    Lovely composition. Here's a tip in snow, though. The camera meters the scene to middle grey, making snow look, well Gray!

    When out in snow, set your camera to + 1or +2 EV, and the snow will be bright the way it naturally looks.

    You could also choose to brighten these shots by 1 or 2 EV, but try it in-camera setting while your outside next time.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks! That's a great input, tried to make a few changes to the pictures according to your tip and it really made a lot of difference. Have to remind myself not to listen to much to the cameras lightning sensor. Thanks again!
