Italy with an E-PL1
Thought I'd share some pictures I took with my E-PL1 a few weeks ago. Most are jpegs from the camera. A few I've worked on the RAWs in Photoshop. I was there for about 2 weeks and the E-PL1 was a champ. I'm still lookin forward to getting the E-PL5 soon though
I've put a few more in my gallery.
Really nice pics. I like the Colloseum and the one i think is from Florence (never been there so it's just a guess).
Some nice shots. You've got a good, creative eye. I am desperate to get to Italy myself, sometime. Hopefully soon. I'll definitely be taking a camera. I would love to hear some of your thoughts about Italy, generally, and photographing there, specifically.
Some nice creative images in a lovely part of the world.

Daiken your compositions are very good, making each photo stand out.
I like them, especially the fenced dirt road.
Thanks everyone. I appreciate the comments. The picture of the dirt road isn't exactly a dirt road. My captions got deleted for a few pics but that picture was on Mount Vesuvius where I was above the clouds. Using a fisheye gave an interesting look as the trail looks like its going into the sky.
Daiken - awesome great shots.
btw, 1st shot shows shutter as 13/1. what speed is?
and is there a mode preferred to shoot in evenings/low light scene?
First shot was a 13 second exposure, f8. It was quite a bit darker than my picture makes it seem. Nothing special about my settings or mode. I think I using aperture priority for that shot. I tried to keep it at f8 since the Olympus 12mm is great from f4-f8, ISO100 to minimize noise. I was using a small tripod I carry around with my gear which is about half a foot long, so exposure time/shake wasn't an issue. I'm not an expert by any means but I was just playing around with long exposures which are fun at night.
