Local fete

The local school and church fete always provides a good photo opportunity and this year was no exception. Fortunately the weather stayed fair. I decided to use my Olympus E PL3 which I only acquired a few weeks ago, together with three prime lenses - the Panasonic 20mm and the Olympus 12mm and 45mm. I am really enjoying this new kit; its so portable and discreet when you are trying to take one or two candid images. 'Zooming' with your feet as opposed to twisting a barrel on a lens makes you think about your own position and compostition well before the shot is taken. More practice is required but the early results are pleasing and I love the sharpness of these excellent lenses.

Here are a small selection of the images taken, all shot in RAW and converted in Lightroom with minimal manipulation which included some sharpening.
