My first contributions...

Hi everyone!

I've been a dabbler in point-and-shoot land for a while, but since I got my E-M5II, the bug has swallowed me whole.

Here's a selection of pics I've taken over the last couple of months, using an E-M5 II couple with any of the Oly 12-40 PRO, 14-42 EZ and Panny 20mm.

I've just received my Panny 15mm, which I think will replace the 20mm.

I hope you like them.. comments welcome!

Re: My first contribution...

Hi,

Thanks for sharing these. All great IMHO but shot 2 stands out for me (I have a thing about starscape shots and that is a great one).

A refreshing mix. Some of the compositions need a bit of work.

What I noticed most was that some of the subjects are very central.

Thanks - that's a fair comment. It's a habit I should break out of...

Re: My first contribution...

Brilliant set of images, really like those. Number 3 just edges it as my favourite. I too suffer from often centralising shots too much. Maybe that why I like these and wouldn't change most if them.
