Default Using the E-30's Art Filters

Well, after seeing all of Greg's great images using the Pop art filters built-in to the E-620. I broke down and tried them using the E-30 last evening.
My wife and I went to the beach to enjoy a quick meal, the evening Sun and the beautiful weather.

What follows are some images I took of various subjects. flowers, sunset home. All taken using the E-30 with the 50-200mm ED lens.
Pop Art Filter:



This is a water scene w/out the filter


With Pop Art Filter engaged:



Waterfront home using Pop Art Filter:



Same using Light Tone Filter:



Sunset no filter:



with Pop Art Filter:



Not sure how I feel about what I'm seeing, other than I like the pop art filter for real estate/architecture. The colors in the flowers are just too strong for my taste. I think I like the water/sunset scenes. But, I think I need to shoot more to determine that.

BTW, I've done no post processing other than cropping to make the images somewhat more uniform. These are all out of camera JPEGS.

The colors can be a little over the top with floral subjects. I've tried it with a few RAW E620 images I shot at the Arboretum and chose not to save any with the filter applied, but I do really like the beach front home done with the pop-art filter and I could see sunsets being another fun application.

No, that's not my home. Mine's bigger.


Actually, that is an 11,000 +sq. ft. summer home of our neighbors. It happens to be the largest home in our town with a tax bill to go along with that.

I live on the proverbial "other side of the neighborhood." Which is a good thing, 'cause I couldn't afford the taxes on that 'little home'. I bet you can fit 5 of my homes into that one.

I like to photograph it as it has some interesting lines, detail, and stonework.

regards,
Zig

P.S. stay cool down there.
