Utterly gorgeous Steve - fantastic scenery and beautifully captured. I particularly like the first and fourth images - excellent!

Agree with the comments of the others. The last two work best for me. Its a pleasure to see such images of unspoilt countryside.

Wow Steve - all fabulous images indeed. Did you use any stitching software to create #1 and #2 - those are superb and I only wish I could achieve such brilliant landscape shots.

Fantastic shots, 1 & 4 for me:)

Btw on No4 is that the shadow of a tripod together with mounted camera in the lower left hand side?

Wow really nice. That is one thing I like about the Olympus system is the natural colours you can get out of the machines :)

really like number 4,the only thing is the shadow of the tripod and camera(I assume that what it is),looks like it could almost be a nice warm day.

Sorry just noticed ndl0071 noticed it too.

What do you mean here in Gods Country the sun is always shining:D

Nice shots but a bit over saturated for my taste.

I think the first one is outstanding - the blue of that sky is to die for and the detail below is really crisp, espcially the ice in the corners!

I tell ya, if I ever produce images that good I will be well pleased with myself.

I do have the 11-22mm. For my tastes its rather big and heavy - but I am making myself take it on holiday..

So watch this space :-)

Thank you for all the replies.
Yes its the tripod shadow in a couple of the photos. I tried to get my shadow out of shot but couldn't do much about the tripod.
I've been told I use to much saturation in my images before but I cant resist it. What can I say they look good on my monitor.
Now I only have to stop my printer banding and I can print some out.

Steve,

I hope you do not mind me asking but do you calibrate your monitor?

Personally, I love the saturation levels in these fabulous images. It's all personal taste... great shots Steve, simply great shots. Probably the best I've seen on here.

Steve,

PeterD

I dont mind you asking. Yes I calibrate my monitors with colorvision spider pro.
the only thing I dont seem happy with is the brightness level. what the calibration software recommends, seems to high to me. If I set it to the recomended I get eye strain and web pages are just to bright. also my printer never matches the brightness levels I see on the screen. So I adjust it manually so It looks right to me and matches the printer.

As far as the saturation levels in my photos go. I like them that way. I know not everyone sees them as realistic and a true representation of the scene at the time but thats just the way I like it.

I would like more comments from people about the saturation levels in my photos and I realy take onboard what they say. I guess it might just be a phase Im going through. You never know you might just talk me out of it lol.
I have found with the E3 and saturation set to 0 in camera, If I use a polarizer filter I dont have to change the sat levels all that much. The photos seem a lot more saturated than I ever got out of my E300.
