Default Hello from an E510 user !

Hi all, just thought I'd say hello to one and all. I'm new to this forum and to photography in general, I started last August !.
Its nice to read thru a forum where people have similar equipment and issues to myself....especially the AF threads, as I hardly use (on my E510) my older version auto 40-150mm lens anymore (but still use the superb 14-42mm alright), much preferring the manual OM 50mm & old Nikon 135mm or old Pentax 28mm. These primes are great, quality wise, except for the manual focussing !!
Here's a pic or two that I've taken:

With Pentax 28mm lens:



With 14-42mm lens:



With the Nikon 135mm lens:

Thanks, its Glanworth Castle, Co. Cork, Ireland. It was taken on a night when the moon was at its fullest/brightest. Unusually for me I only took the 1 exposure, I usually take 3 or 4 at different exposure times, especially for night time shots, ie. I would have preferred a shot with a little less exposure, but thats just the perfectionist in me

I agree but didn't like to say anything negative in a first post and I still like it as it is.

If the rest of your work is like this then I can't wait to see more.

Well these would probably be my favourite/best three of the million pics I've taken since August ! Alot of pics had to be taken (& deleted ) until I had reached this kind of acceptability !

Here's another to tease you: I stopped the car one evening on the way home from work, I balanced the camera on the wing-mirror of the car & took this shot, its not perfect, but I liked it !
