Denia & Valencia, Spain

Having just joined the forum, I thought I should post some pics! These are from a visit to my uncle in Denia, Spain a couple of weeks ago. Most were shot with the E-M1 and 12-40mm f2.8, the rest with some faster primes. I'm new to the micro 4/3 system, having spent many years with Pentax. It's taking me a while to get used to the E-M1, but I'm beginning to get results I like.

Great set Matt and difficult to choose a favourite, but the bell tower does stand out. It looks like you have really got to grips with your new kit.

Re: Denia & Valencia, Spain

Welcome to the forum Matt, you have some stunning images there as well as it being a good "Location" series.

If I had to pick three "Winners" it would be 5, 12 & 14 but I couldn't select a favourite from between those

Thanks all! The fishy building is part of the Valencia Arts & Science complex

It has been surrounded by controversy, with cost overruns during the building and later with rapid deterioration of the facade. That said I found it a fascinating place and I very much like the modern design.

I have seen some stunning images of the Valencia Arts & Science complex when that pool is still as the reflections are amazing. You did not have the best light or waether.

Your off and running with these Matt, a stunning set.
All very impressive but I'm particularly drawn to 1, 4, 5, 6, 12 and 16.
Great post

Thanks, I appreciate getting constructive feedback. Better light is always a winner and I agree the last picture in particular would work better with a good reflection. Unfortunately (or fortunately for my wife) this wasn't primarily a photography trip. So I just had to grab my shots as I came across them. Still may be next time

I don't think this set really does Valencia justice. We only had a day there (the rest of the time being in Denia). There's so much more to see! Enjoy your trip!

A fantastic collection of images. They're all excellent and I would have been very pleased to have captured anyone of them, just one would do never mind 19! Denia 120046 has a wonderful sense of light and dark, warmth and coolness.
