    Hello everyone! This is my first real post here (other than my introductory post). I'm excited to be joining a new forum - particularly since it's for the Micro 4/3 system! I used to, and still do, shoot Canon DSLR's, but just got my Panasonic GF1 a little over a week ago to use for street shooting and travel. Man do I love it! And I don't care what the reviewers say about noise on these models. I find mine to actually look GOOD with some of the noise from this camera - and regardless it cleans up REALLY well in LR3 - even more so than my 40D.

    Anyway, these are images shot on the street during a small town festival a little over a week ago. I shot them with the GF1 and the 20mm f/1.7. Comments and critique is definitely welcome.

    I like the mono treatment. Definitely always a safe bet when doing some street shooting. Many of these are a bit too busy, they work nicely for documenting the event.

    That said the 4th one up from the bottom is a really nice street shot of the guy waiting on the step, great expression, good timing which makes it a nice street shot. and the last one, waiting for the bus i like as well.

    I'd prefer such street fair pictures to be in vivid colour ... just me?
