so at my wife's recommendation I got off my backside, grabbed the GX-10 and went for a short drive before work. To be honest, many of the shots do not bear close scrutiny. But there are one or two that aren't too bad.













And when I got back home, this chap was singing his heart out from the top of a neighbour's tree

Very brave Keith.

I just shivered as I scraped the car, then jumped in a went to work.



Don't think the anti-shake could cope with me this morning.

And another from this morning. When I first saw it I thought "Delete!"; I'm sure you can see why





Luckily I very seldom actually delete anything and with a bit of playing with the RAW file I got this:



The one thing I did notice was that by boosting the black, all the almost invisible imperfections (AKA dust) became huge blemishes!

I agree with Roy - it's a neat picture. Out of your first lot, I like the second one best.

Good job you weren't too eager with the delete button.



Good shooting.

Hi Ronny

Oh yes! Even with it on I suspect the lack of sharpness is due to shivering - plus the fact that the Sigma definitely prefers sunshine. This is a crop from a photo taken on my return to the house. It's at 100% and a straight-from-camera jpg, no PP.
