Default EP1 and the Pin Hole Art filter...show me yours

The EP1 is certainly a fun camera to use. I've been exploring the Art filters and recently took some pictures using the Pin Hole effect. At first I did not think much of it because I thought all it did was adding vignetting to the image. Not quite so. It saturates the colors in an interesting way producing very appealing (to me at least) images. Here are a few samples. You're welcome to add your samples.

Very cool. Which camera do you have? Did you get the effect through PP? If so, which software did you use?

I'm using the E600 but the effect was straight from the camera. I've tweaked the 1st one with iPhoto but it kind of lost the Pin hole effect.

Btw, I agree with you regarding the colour saturation. This effect seems to be enhancing the colours, making them more lively. I like your 1st picture of the tree with the blue sky as a background, and the pin hole seems to be exactly enhancing that blue.

Thanks for the info. Yes, this effect enhances the colors but in a different way than say Vivid mode. Colors are not just over saturated, they have a different tone to them. The images also look much sharper even though the exif data indicates Sharpness 0.
