Default Sandwich Grist Mill

The Sandwich Grist Mill is one of many sites where you can find photogs this time of year trying to get the best spot from which to take a photo of this very pretty landmark.

I used the E-30 with the 12-60mm SWD. Then applied a little Orton Effect. I may have overcooked this one. But, to me, it has the feel of an impressionistic painting.

I like it. Like you say, it has very much an impressionist feel to me.

Nice, soft light. Looks like a setting created for photography. Is that a tee box on a golf course?

At first I thought my vision was going from bad to worse.

After that sure it's ok kinda like a Monet I reckon.
I prefer the crisp fall look myself but this is interesting.



How do you like that 12-60mm lens? I'm thinking that will be my next upgrade of my kit.
Is it much heavier or bulkier than the 14-45mm 3.5 lens

The Grist Mill is located at the end of Shawme Lake. This is a photo showing the back side of the Mill behind is the Town Hall:

Hi Alex,

The 12-60mmSWD is a significantly more substantial lens which balances well on a bigger body like the E-3, E-3, or E-1. Although, I used it with the E-510 and found it to be very comfortable in my hands, which are large.

It is a major upgrade, in terms of quality, to the 14-45mm. I chose to buy the 12-60mm because I wanted the add'l angle of view that it offered and I didn't want to get an 11-22mm lens. If you would like to see more shots taken with the 12-60mm, just click on my smugmug link and look at the Scorton Creek Gallery. Almost all of those images were taken with the 12-60mm lens.

Hopefully, those images wont hurt your eyes as much

Depending on your style of Photography, you may want to look at the 14-54mm lens. I've owned the MKI version. It is a wonderful lens with great IQ and clarity. It is also available on the used market at around 275-300 dollars USD.

That's exactly the thought I had when I clicked on this tread.

My eyes were drawn to the photo before I read your comments, and for the first half second I thought my reading glasses were smudged or something, then I realized you had PP for that effect. Very interesting photo, and a pretty location.
