    Now I am a bit more used to my E-PL5, I appreciate more of its finer points rather than its deficiencies. One lunchtime this week I took it to the British Museum in London.

    The British Museum is a museum dedicated to human history and culture. Its permanent collection, numbering some eight million works, is amongst the largest and most comprehensive in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.

    Some great looking images; I'm really enjoying that 2nd shot on a number of levels.

    Thanks for sharing them :smile:

    Thank you! I'm very happy with the way the use of a reddish/coppery toner and exaggerated contrast turned out in that picture :smile:

    Nice perspective in all of your images. And I believe you've convinced me to buy the EPL5 as my next travel camera.

    Very good. I got admonished by Zariell for bemoaning the lack of contrast in many of todays images, but looking at these I see his point about tonality.

    Thanks for sharing the images! I will making a trip there soon and it was great to see a little spoiler. My favourite is of the Norman Foster dome/courtyard. Great shots!
