Default Back to reality

Please pardon my little indiscretion when I posted something to do with the Nikon D90.

Having gotten that out of my system, I took to looking at some of the reasons I do like my E-30 and there are plenty.

Here are a couple:

E-30 with my 12-60mm SWd lens. One of the main reasons I just can't let go.



E-30 with the 50-200mm lens, the other reason I just can't let go:

Good eye Dan,

I used Adobe's Camera Raw to introduce some vignetting on all 4 corners. I also made the area surrounding the waterlily darker by using the black slider in ACR.

I find this a simple way of adding visual interest on the main subject and hiding some of the unnecessary background.

You're too late, Eric. I already asked for his E-30. I'm not even going to charge him for my safekeeping services. LOL
