Iron fence image is particularly strong, I think. Wonderful contrast between the angularity of the metal and concrete, the surface texture of the ground and the aliveness of the Queen Anne's Lace (?). Oh, and a similar tension is happening in the bicycle picture also.

I like this one, and a number of your recent shots. The bench series is especially nice.

So how are you liking your GF1. I've considered one for backpacking instead of the Canon G11 I'm using now.

David, the file quality possible from the Micro 4/3s sensor is astonishing. I've made a couple prints with slightly over 15x20 image area that I'd be delighted to exhibit.

Weak point is the EVF which gives a really rough, low-resolution view. The LCD is otoh excellent, but I don't know if I can ever train myself to use a back of the camera LCD as a pointing device. It's not just 50+ years practice of using hand cameras at eye level, but floating the camera out in the air in front of you is nowhere near as steady as bracing it against your face.
