    I'm quite happy with these because they are better than I expected. This camera was a hoot to shoot, lol. Some are handheld, some are tripod, some are handheld or tripod HDR.

    The first shot is a reprise of a shot I took recently with my E-PL5 -- only this one was by day.

    Of course you can click through to flickr if you want to see exif data.

    Thank you!

    Just noticed your signature and I wouldn't mind having a Century Graflex myself! Great classic iron.

    That LX7 seems WAY better than it is entitled to be. Did it forget that it has a small sensor?

    BTW.....very nice HDR. What software are you using?

    I thank you!

    I use LR Enfuse from Photographers Toolbox. Minimally priced and does photo realistic HDR well if your original shots allow. Works as a plugin for Lightroom but I think there is a stand-alone version as well.

    These are wonderful... composition is king, no matter the camera.

    I love the colour of those shots and I don't say that very often about my Lumix results with the LX5.

    Thank you! Color is important to me and I have an approach to getting it that I will be refining, like, forever, lol. When I was a boy in 1966 I started my photography journey shooting a 1955 Kodak and Ektachrome slide film and that's still the model stuck in my head for color and presentation.

    I did a short article on mu-43.com about how I'm trying to get that look in my digital photography by shooting in RAW and using Lightroom and you can see it by clicking here if you're interested.

    Thanks for that link John.
    I think we may have similar views on colour that's why I love Fuji now and Perutz back in the old days.

    Love those photos; great compositions! I am always impressed with LX7 results too, I might have to get one soon - for about £250 it must be a bargain!

    Thanks!

    Claymont, Delaware, Ray. But the pump house and mill are not generally accessible for photographers. I work here so it's a playground of sorts. I did photograph at two old paper mills in Coatesville though.
