A little constructive criticism . . . you might want to check your sharpening output or something when you uploaded the image to the net. I see some blocky artifacts in the blue background that probably weren't there when you were working on this there. That's happened to me before and I don't really know why--something from when my raw was getting converted to JPEG if I remember right.

It looks really cool though. I like how it's composed, and the yellow and blue together.

A nice composition and vibrant colors. What more could you ask for? Nice shot.

nice detail with that lens too.

Fred, did you move up to the E-PL5 from another Pen? I'm wondering what the real life difference in dynamic range feels like. I understand the high ISO and all of that, I think.

I have an EPL-1 which my daughter is getting for her birthday
A good reason to buy an EPL-5. LOL
I can speak for the higher ISO and Faster AF ( A VERY nice improvement )
AF with my FT 70-300 is really nice.
As for dynamic range, I can't really say . I got the EPL-5, 2 weeks ago
and the weekend weather has been horrible ( Snow Wind and cold )
So only back yard snow pictures and and indoor flower shots .
Hopefully Sunday I will do some out door testing.
I think / hope the EPL-5 and FT 70-300 with be a good combination

Another indoor flash shot Orcid EPL-5 and Sigma 19mm f 2.8
