E-510 over xmas - indoor & outdoor

In previous years I´ve just used my P&S for xmas gatherings - and though its the memories and moments recorded in time that are important, the picture quality left a lot to be dsired. This year, weight be damned. I took the E-510 along plus both my lenses 14-54mm mk1 and the 70-300mm. I used a folded sheet of A4 paper tilted at 45 degrees right infront of the pop up flash to act as diffuser bounced off the ceiling. Loved the results! Here´s a random selection. I will post more in the various weekly threads.

All pics shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom 4.3

Sunset: Colours tweaked a bit in Lightroom.

One of the many home made desserts

Left to Right: My wife´s paternal & maternal grandfathers, aged 89 and 92 respectively. Both still going strong.

The wife herself - chatting with her dad.

Wintry pastoral scene.


The Castle at Montemor-o-velho. Built between 990AD and 1017AD.

At least half of the original structure is still in good condition.

Don´t compromise. If you value quality, keep your 4/3 cameras and lenses ticking
