Very cool Bob. Your images are all so sharp. Did you make any sharpness adjustments in the camera's settings or leave them set at default? The colors are great too. I'd like to be walking on that boardwalk.

.....hi Alan,

I have left the camera settings to default for now (except for functionality) and make any file(s) adjustments in AfterShot Pro by Corel which for the time being is not updated to handle the M1 ORF RAW files.

Once the software is updated I will then shoot only RAW with some exception for when JPG might be more convenient.

As for the boardwalk at the pond, it is a new feature at our local 'Nature Preserve' which is 5-minutes away for me. I've been photographing the park for 7-yrs when is was pristine and very few other than myself went there. Now with some amenities including a small parking lot done the visitor count is many times before. It still is for the most part 60-acres of difficult trails; it is my favorite of 90+ parks in our city.

Thanks,
Bob

Although, the camera's capabilities are impressive, I find your willingness to grasp all the tricks and technology choices available today, even more impressive.

I also can't help but remember how disappointed I was with Olympus' lack of direction just a couple of years ago. They've done a good job of correcting their products' shortcomings.

Your patience has paid off.

Thanks Zig, it is what I worked at for so many years and keeping up with the tech stuff keeps me thinking which in turn keeps me busy; for an old man thinking is important.

It has paid off and for a first time I jumped for the new camera ASAP. You would really like using the M1.

I'm sorry to read of your gear problems, thanks for stopping by to comment.

James,
......sorry getting back to you a bit late with this

I use the APPLE app from Olympus but downloaded from the Apple App Store, I've not looked at Olympus America to see if there is some link or even reference to the app.

But from App Store a search for Olympus will find it.

For anyone interested- I was checking into the program Bob uses (AfterShot Pro) and it's currently on sale for $24.99. Not sure how long that's going to last. http://goo.gl/wtHv1k

When I first bought Bibble Pro I paid $125, that was in year 2006. Since COREL bought Bibble Labs, 2-yrs ago, the price has been near giveaway. Still, it is great PP editing software, I recommend it worth trying.
