Default First E-PL1 Shots

Nothing Exciting
Cloudy morning with fresh snow. Lots of white stuff
Went out mainly to learn the E-PL1
I had lots of fun with the Exposure compensation
What you see it pretty much how it looked this morning.
14-42 Kit lens f 8 ISO 200 shutter 640
Considering the conditions ,IMO the results are OK
Opinions ?
Thanks for looking

Buuuuuuuuur! As I sit her in Chili's in shorts and a t-shirt, that looks COLD.

You did an excellent job with all that white.

Nice, the first pic looks like a painting.

I'd knock the exposure down a notch. The first image in particular looks a bit over exposed. For the most part the EPL1 exposes very accurately but since it controls noise so well, I find it easier to under expose a bit and bring out the light in PP'ing. Good start, though.

Nice first shots, i enjoy the composition of the first one a great deal. It is the type of landscape you will probably get amazing results from in the fall.

Looks familiar, the snow that is

Here is a shot I took this afternoon.
Yes it is brown and boring here, this time of year.
All setting set to 0 until i figure out what is best
Exposure is at +0.7 . Tullio suggestion helped with the exposure
I like the DOF at f 8 and sharpness of the 14-42 mk1 kit lens
Tree is about 10 m away from me Railway tracks 100 m
truck is about 500 m away

I'm with you Fred. I can't wait until spring. I really do not enjoy going out and freezing to take pics. I like colors.
