    Just as a note, I had a question about the contrast & I've tweaked a few because it was low today. Well, a peek at the front of the lens showed that old habits die hard. While I doubt the kit lens is as vulnerable as my 1949 Summitar, I popped a UV filter on there when I got it without much thought. That's not a big deal in itself, but it really was quite filthy which of course will get you lower contrast.
     
  4. Nice work, although I would definitely agree that they would benefit from a boost in contrast. I'd also recommend trying ISO 200 for higher dynamic scenes like the first two images. ISO 100 is a bit of software trickery in the early Micro 4/3 bodies and it will burn highlights very easily.

    Thanks for the ISO pointer! I'll give that a try today.
