    I'll start it off. This morning I took a little trip to the local cemetary, a favorite spot
    of mine to take a few snaps. I know there is a RIP thread but I wanted to start a epl2 photo one.
    All shots were in Art mode. I've only used art mode so far... go figure. So here goes:

    Comments welcome and thanks for looking.
    Cheers all,
    Pete

    Pete, thank you for taking the action to start this new thread.:th_salute:

    That art mode is pretty darned impressive. Did you do any post process tweaking? They're very intense - which I mean as a compliment. I feel as though there's a very slight otherworldly film feeling. I don't know if that's a combination of the E-PL2's art mode and you or what, but it has worked very powerfully.

    Your second and third are my own favorites of this group, though they all are very moving. I think I like these two the best due to their color and their less personal nature. I am not used to seeing photographs on people's headstones. Not saying it's a bad thing - just a very different thing for me.

    Thanks Andy and have fun with the new toy:
    BB: all I did was to add some vignette and adjust the overall tone. no sharpening or creative stuff... I'm
    not very good in the post dept.
    Thanks,
    Pete

    Oh, these are nice. Love the art mode. I think numbers two and three are the most effective, I think the perspective in these two work really well. I always feel that I'm intruding when in a graveyard but when you come to think of it, that's what they're there for, to remember the dead. We should just be respectful.

    Time to revive to thread! :smile:

    Got this from a mu-43.com member, and with a very good price. Haven't been able to really go out and shoot with it, but from the few I've shot, I'm very happy with it.

    The shots above were with the Panasonic 20mm. Apart from it, I only have the 14mm and the Olympus 45mm. But I'm definitely most comfortable with the 20mm. Love that little lens. :smile:
