    an unheralded bonus of the XP90 is that it also creates lovely low contrast watercolor paintings in dim lighting :laugh1:

    At the risk of sounding prosaic it just looks to me like a different WB setting... ;)

    It also looks like a lot of snow.

    Love the first one. I don't miss snowy winters except for the photographic possibilities. I hung up my snow shovel at age 18 and never looked back.

    Here's the first image corrected to approximately what it looked like to my eye:

    OMD 2 snowfall 007-001.JPG

    Here's the XP90 again for comparison:

    XP90 snowfall 003.JPG

    When I shot the originals, both were shot with auto white balance. I tried fiddling with the WB on the OMD to get the color right, but nothing fixed it while I was shooting. The tweak to the OMD image above was done using, of all things, Picasa.

    Cheers, Jock

    IMHO, the secret to happiness is upstate New York this time of year is a large, powerful snowblower that starts easily . . .
