Comments welcome. The 11-22 might be a bit slow and the combination is a bit "head-heavy", but its my widest angle lens and ts quite sharp and fast ...

I like these a lot. They make me want to visit - and I actually live in England! What PP did you do to get the Dickensian feel eg on the covered street? Also - why have I never heard of an 11-22 lens? Is it an m4/3 lens?

Thanks for showing them.
Maggie

Well done! The E-PL1 and FT 11-22mm is a combination I am interested in too. I see you had great success with the pair. Thanks for posting!

First one is sweet.

The 11-22mm is a nice lens.

Hi Maggie, thanks for the comments. The 11-22 mm is actually a FT lens, which I like quite a bit on my E-3 too. As I wanted to go to London and surroundings a bit more lightweight, I replaced the E-3 by the E-PL1. The biggest disadvantage is the very slow autofocus, but I like more to take pictures of architcture and landscape and neither buildings nor mountains tend to move too fast

The postprocessing in Lightroom is rather simple. I increased contrast, reduced highlights, increased shadows, added clarity and vibrance, adapted exposure and reduced saturaton to my liking. Finally a bit denoising and sharpening and thats it.
Best regards
Stefan

Very nice pics. You have a talent for getting all these wonderful vaulted ceilings with the life going on below.

But how can you take such nice pictures when your camera is not the latest and greatest? Just kidding. I have an ancient G3 that I bought at an antique store;-)

Thanks for your kind comment, its a long time after I had last time chance to shoot some new pics. And yes, the E-PL1 is soo much yesterday, quite nostalgic But, hionestly, it makes a great citytravel cam, since the pics are ok and I can even put my FT glass on. For my next upcoming journey I probably skip the also outdated E3 completely and take again the E-PL1 only ...

Take care
