Hello fellow Olympus users!

Hi!
my name is Dave and been a member on here for a while but been a bit shy about introducing myself until now! Based in Huntingdonshire/Cambridge area.

Been using Olympus Camera's for about 30 years, started with an OM10 moved to a OM2! Finally went digital 5 years ago with an E510 and recently moved up to a E5.

Mainly do landscape/historic building photography but also have a passion for aviation. However recently been extending my work into other areas!

Not posted any work on here but my website has a selection of work on it, although not that recent, badly need to update it

http://www.davepickettphotographer.co.uk/

Joined group to increase my knowledge and skills as a photographer, so hope to learn loads from you guys!

Hi Dave, and welcome. Hope you don't mind, I've edited your opening post to include a direct link to your website - you're likely to get more visitors that way. It's a very good site with some excellent pictures, I'm glad to see you are not afraid to shoot into the light.

Cheers,

Welcome from me too. There are some lovely shots on your website Dave. I'd be interested in your thoughts of the E5 over the E510 as I've still got the 510 myself.
