Re: OK Feet first with a new Pen-F

In the first photo I'm glad the tram was moving away from you.

A nice set of photos.



BTW, if you add a carriage return after the image url] it would look better with the photo description under it. Just me being picky though.

Re: OK Feet first with a new Pen-F

Welcome and nice start!
Love the tram shot - if I were to suggest anything then cropping closer in to make it more prominent might work better?
The bridge is very good too - great star bursts, I have the 17mm f1.8 so I need to experiment with stopping that down for night shots

Sort of yes but I don't do enough really, this was taken on the same trip but not with the new Pen-F, my old trusty E-M10 which I love, I want to know how to avoid the burn out that I was getting to the BBC signs at the top of the buildings, this was a HDR composite from a single RAW file, I don't tend to like HDR images much so I thought I would try some

Re: OK Feet first with a new Pen-F

Two interesting photos.

An Aunt recently passed away & she had a typewriter in her belongings. We didn't keep it though. We have too much stuff already.
