    I recently bought a used Olympus ZD 14-54mm MKI lens and took a few quick shots out in the lot. IQ is a huge step up from the kit lenses and I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with this lens!

    If you have any comments, please feel free to leave one. Thanks!

    The first two shots don;t do much for me. Your third shot, of the two leaves resting on top of that amazingly still water, is the best of the three. That lens is recognized as a really good zoom for the 4/3 system. I hope you enjoy it very much--it's nice to work with a lens that's a decided step up from the kit lens,especially when fine detail rendition and good optical quality can make or break a shot.

    Congrats on the new lens,

    I was thinking that looked like a car. If it was water I think I'd like it more more.

    3rd is terrific. Clever use of a reflective surface.

    Added a bit of saturation of the red and yellow in Photoshop, and sharpened and cropped the image a bit to make it pop a bit more. Minor adjustments can add a bit of life to the image.
