    It can be hard to know how to focus photography when light is less than ideal - much of my photography is done when out with the family so that's the middle of the day. I often try to pick out a theme as it makes me think creatively about how to capture a range of images, so I don't end up with a bunch of pictures that all look the same.

    Here I focused on the sculpture in the gardens at Riverhill in Kent. I was using my GX7 with the 14-42II and the P20.

    Comments are very welcome.

    These are really nice and the processing is well done on them to lessen the effect of bright daylight. I just think you might want to back off a little bit on the sky and the clouds. Maybe just go over with a brush and brighten the bottom of the clouds as surely a bright sunny day didn't have any black clouds.

    Thanks @Hypilein@Hypilein - I agree that I've pushed the contrast too far in the sky in pics 1&5. I don't mind it so much in the second picture but I see what you mean, and as long as I can maintain the structure in the clouds it should work well.
