New camera

`Just bought myself an Olympus E-PL2 (PEN) digital, and I thought I'd experiment a bit. This is my Hamilton 950B. It's shown with my Hamilton 950. I like them both, but I think the 950 is prettier!

I wanted to see how clean an image would be, even downsized, but significantly enlarged. Looked better before I downsized it, but this looks okay. I've added a shot of my 19-jewel Hamilton 952 which is of the same family. You don't see a lot of these around. At least I don't!

Your pics are OK, Doug, but you could post them with bigger dimensions for this MB. Max 1100 x 1100 pix and not larger than 300K file size. You can post very detailed pictures within those limits.

A tad brighter would suit my taste. If you don't change the exposure settings on our camera, all photo-editing applications these days can make your photos brighter, change the contrast, etc.

Glyn,

Along with the new camera is a new photo editting program that is going to take some time to learn. I have brightened up the images a bit, but they somehow have a sort of messed with appearance about them, and I don't think there has been any improvement, over all. There's no substitute for getting the lighting right before you take the picture. Carry on, learning!
