Your photos are very nice. There's nothing wrong with the post-processing, but I suggest you try RAW development with Olympus Viewer 3, which is a free download. It lets you experiment with the same settings and effects that are available on your camera, so you can learn what they do. It automatically fixes geometric distortions from Olympus lenses. And it exports images with the "Olympus colors" that some people find especially appealing. OV3 is not the most powerful RAW developer, but it is often the first step in my processing.

Thanks for the advice, but I have two Panasonic lenses. The distortion will not be corrected with OV3 I believe. I use PTlens for that. ACR also does a good job with the chromatic abberation correction.

I had a look at OV3. The colors are indeed nice, but I found it terribly slow on my computer system.

For now I think I stick to ACR. The results I get are OK with me.

Maybe I will have a look at Photo Ninja. I read a lot of good stuff about it.
