I have started a new fun challenge on the Four Thirds User forum which you may be interested in, see:

Would love to have submitted this one, but it's from my OM-2n, 26 years ago, and is a scanned copy of a framed 6" x 4" print.

Don't think it qualifies for the competition, but always thought it was one of my best, and more recently that is had good bokeh (once I understood what that meant!), especially as my then to be wife is the subject matter....


Engaged after two weeks, married in five months (different kind of bouquet!).

It's not a competition, just for fun :) Some nice submissions already.

I'm going to cheat as well because this is a film shot - OM4Ti, the wonderful Zuiko 250mm f/2 wide open, handheld at about 1/125 probably on ISO 1600 Fuji neg film. It was a horrible dark day close to the winter solstice, and foggy.


It may be cheating but I couldn't resist sharing it. And best of all, we won the match :)

Ciao ... John

Well, I just happen to have a print of my daughter sitting on my desk - taken about 15 years ago with an OM1, 50/1.8 and soft focus filter. So here's a very quick and dirty scan (literally - it's very dusty, but I haven't got time right now to get the proper photo scanner out and mess about with ICE and all that).
