I like this one a lot.
A fine composition in a very abstract style.
Iso 3200 was surely the right choice to get this fine graininess.
Another kind of photography.

Re: Victor...

Thank you.
Actually I had to use iso 3200 + 2 EV (= 12800 iso). I also had to tweak levels and resample “nearest-neighbour” to bring out this rough texture.

Maybe this can inspire some more Olympus folks to go abstract and B&W….
It is great fun to shot and play different than usual.

The E-PL1 is great fun.

Thank you Steve.

Upon our northern hemisphere everything is just all right.
It’s the time of spring. Everything grows fast, life and all the colours of green are slowly but faster day by day wakening up after winters hibernation.
Days are getting longer and soon the sun refuse to settle for the evening and stay up all night in the northern parts of Norway.

In a months time or so we will go on a four weeks holyday in central Europe.

So yes; Life is good!

I hope everything also is good in your life.
Thanks for showing interest.
Take care.
