Default Maui Pics

Loving our new E-PL1. Easy even for a newbie.

Here are a few pics from our Maui trip last week.

1st - Paia outside Mamas Fish House
2nd - Summit of Haleakala
3rd - Sunset dinner at Merrimans in Kapalua

Favorite filter setting - Pop Art

Favorite scene setting - Sunset (really enhanced the sky colors)

Had some issues with the flash but I am sure it was user error.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your pen, I like the last shot the best although they all are interesting.

#1 is oversaturated.
#2 is overdone in a cartoonish manner.
#3 is nice and appears pretty much left as imaged.

I can see that the EPL-1 provides a boatload of artistic options, but I try to keep my photos as unaltered as possible.

Lovely sunset shot. The other two are way overly saturated (for my taste).

Thanks for the feedback.

It was our first time really using the camera so we took multiple shots of same scene using different filters to see what the camera could do. Not happy will all myself and we need to keep practicing.

The 1st pic used the Pop Art filter.
The 2nd pic not sure what we did but it really felt like you were on another planet up there.
The 3rd pic used the Sunset scene.

Well, I guess it boils down to personal test, doesn't it?!? Those art filters are fun (I really like the pinhole effect) but they can be overpowering.

Other than photojournalism, personal photos are like an artist painting a picture, you have creative license to interpret a scene in a way that satisfies your creativity. You eventually find a style that pleases yourself.
