    Following Livnius' thread on street shots using Don's presets, I thought I would share a compilation of mine from a few days of using them. I toned down the contrast on a few of these to lighten things up a bit. Really enjoy using these, I downloaded the LR version. Taken at the Puyallup Fair in Puyallup, WA and a few places in Portland, OR. All of these were taken with the EM-5 and Pansonic 12-35 f/2.8 (now my everyday lens). Comments and critique gladly welcome.

    Thanks Joe! That one was one of my favorites from the weekend. The B&W treatment really made the boot texture pop.

    Last two are my favorites, but plus 1 point for the pun on the "blondes with flair" photo :thumbup:

    I really like number 5. Something mysterious there. Good work.
