Due to adverse weather conditions (albeit not as bad as some) I haven't been out much so this is another view over Greenwich from half way up the hill taken a couple of weeks ago. Given a bit of a desaturation treatment and touch of sepia just because I liked the look. Smile

I'm awaiting a new Canon 40mm 2.8 pancake lens which is a reasonable price as looks quite handy. I think I'm going to try a few trips out using just that one lens as soon as it stops raining. I find a 50mm lens a bit too long but the size of the 40mm (rather nearer a 35mm which I can't afford) means I can just pop it into a bag on my DSLR. Of course I don't need it, but it got good write-ups.

That is an attractive tone, especially for a cityscape such as this.

An unusual view from this 'neck of the woods', given the 60s treatment. Looks good, Chris.

Well presented in sepia tone.

I like the look of this too, reminds of an old postcard.

Now, Chris, if you had bought the EM-5 you could have gone out in the rain with it.

I stupidly reset the camera the other day and have spent 1 hr this morning getting the settings right again. Then, on dpreview.com I found a whole thread with real photos showing how to get the most of the camera! Whoppee

The toning works very well on this fine view. Good luck with your new lens.

I love the processing, Chris. It looks like one of them old photographs Smile

The house I grew up in was just off the right-hand side of the image! I've always loved Greenwich and you've given an image that accentuates that, a great image Chris!

A very fine capture, Chris Smile Think you've got a long wait for better weather, I don't think it's ever going to stop raining! Sad

Great shot, I like the use of the branches breaking up the sky, almost like forks of lightning.
