Nice shiny surfaces be they wood, marble, glass, or metal. Pics are breathtaking!

Thank you everyone for your constructive feedback.

I agree that only using the last row of the lights may have been a better way to represent the lightsource without over doing it. i had originally liked the lines from the lights, but can see it working that way too.

Bynx - I really like the edit. I was bothered slightly by the not quite perfect symmetry as well. I could have used a wider-lens as if i stepped back to get the symmetry perfect it introduced another element that you can't see in this shot. i should have shot a couple more and stitched them, but your PP works as well. it was similar with the armory shot, i couldnt get the cases with my lens, and stepping back, they were blocked by some pillars. should have shot several shots and stitched them in hindsight.

Perfection!
If ever there was one....this is it.

And at ISO Speed Ratings = 1600 (!!!) Where is all the noise gone to...? There must be @ ISO 1600.... (if that Exif-data is right).

Incredible.

Walter, thank you for the kind words, nice compliments coming from you.

Yes, they are ISO 1600. You can see the noise at 100% crops, but its really not bad at all. the olympus jpeg engine does a good job of keeping the noise at bay while still retaining detail. i am impressed though, its not much different from my 50d at 1600.

Walter,

The epl-1 can take photo with acceptable noise upto 3200iso it's limits. But 2000iso the highest I suggest.

Check out this thread if you want to check out the noise level at the higher iso of the epl-1, starting at post 32

I don't want to turn this wonderful thread into another "Which camera should I buy"-thing - but this Oly really surprises me! And I have already checked off the E620 (which on most accounts would fit both my needs and my bill) as 'not good enough in high ISO' on my 'next dSLR'-list and here comes Dustin and turns the whole thing around...maybe I shouldn't have...?


Thanks anyway, both Dustin and shoturtle for the surprising information.

Nice compositions and nice lighting. if you used HDR, it is done in a manner that does not look like HDR...very natural. The images do look a tad soft however...or is it just me???

thanks joey and jehan.

jehan, they may be a little soft. they were handheld HDR's at ISO 1600, which would prevent them from being my normal crispness.
