    Phill,

    That is one of the best of that filter I have seen. Always looks a little heavy handed when I have used it. That said I have not played with the options on the art filters in the E-M!. At least when you take jpg+raw you can always have the original.

    Raven, thanks for the compliments on the gold finch. I really love the 50-200 on the E-M1. Almost enough that I might not spring for the new pro telephoto. But if I can get a few extra stops for the similar size and weight...

    Thanks kg it's the first time I'd tried it out and to be honest it could get quite addictive. There is a definite danger of overdoing it though. I was surprised how the image changed quite a bit just by very slight movements of the image. It was a bit like using a polariser but obviously it cant be so I guess its some sort of illusion/quirk of the EVF.

    Here's what it looked like without the filter.

    Phill,

    Really great color on the building. Old buildings tend to be a good fit for the dramatic tone and a few other filters. The sepia and pale color can work well. Since all my current Olympus cameras allow post capture, in camera art filter application I sometimes go that route. That said having the filter in live view is often what makes it useful.

    Not a special dragonfly, but I loved the shape of the perch.

    Tilting screen, live view and digital zoom made catching this guy about 10 feet out in the pond possible while resting the camera and 50-200 on the ground.

    Nice dof control on those kg. Shame about the little flower behind the frog. Time to get the PS out there.

    Tried out the Dramatic Tone filter again yesterday.

    Phill,

    Those are much more typical dramatic tone shots. It almost always gives those threatening clouds.

    The flower behind the frog bothered me too, but I kind of like it some now.

    Phil, I'm still not sold on the dramatic tone filter.
