Default Stone Inukshuk

While out walking the dog today, came across this Inukshuk. This is a straight from camera jpeg, reduced in size in Oly Master 2. Tricky trying to keep the snow from blowing out and still keep some detail in the shadowed areas. E-PL1, spot metering with the kit lens.

Hi,

One of the really nice features of the olympus micro fourthirds series of cameras is the sensor coupled with the jpeg engine. Together, they really do a great job of getting the image 'right' without too much user intervention.

When I get asked by my friends whenever they see me using the E-PL1, how hard is it to use and can I get good pictures out of it, I simply put it into Auto, give them the camera and tell them; here you try it and see how you like it.
they are amazed at the results.

Zig

I actually did a 3 stop bracket of this and then processed in photoshop as an hdr. Very subtle differences -- a bit more contrast detail in the wall's shadow and marginally more cloud in the sky. But when I compared the two images, the original (above) image was just as good.
