Mole, these are great. I've had the 16-45 lens for several years, and I love it. Optically, it's excellent. But remember -- it's not weather sealed, so it needs a bit of TLC in rainy conditions. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your superb work with this lens.

Lovely series - the pictures from the tower are really special. Looks like a wonderful hike and I love the evening light on your way down - excellent!

Lou - Thanks! Holston Mt is indeed a great place for views almost anytime.

Ned - Thanks for all the detailed and helpful critique! Would love to see your sunshine photo as well.
By the way, if you are looking for free software to resize (and also for minor edits), you might try Irfanview. It works on Windows, and can work on Mac too if you use Darwine...

GW - Thanks so much!

Mtnman - Thanks for the tip - most of my lenses are not weather sealed (nor is my camera!), so I do have to be careful outdoors...

Harriet - Thanks so much for your kind words!

Dustin - Glad you liked them! You should come visit East TN some time, and enjoy all the great views!

Hiya. I posted it yesterday, though I still could not manage to get it at 800X600... just wouldn't work, so I settled for the next smaller size 640...

If you haven't seen here, you can go to this link: http://i46.tinypic.com/156fibb.jpg

REMEMBER... this was taken with a Nokia N95 mobile phone. The sun was glistening through the trees (which makes up Finland, along with over 10,000 lakes). Al the best. Ned

Ned - That is a fine photo - despite the severe limitations of the cellphone camera - shows well both the beautiful wintry scene, and your talented photo skills!

Many kind thanks, indeed, mole! Talk about "severe limitations"... waiting for my tax return so I can get a REAL camera... that is a severe limitation...

Thanks and all the best. Ned
