Brighton - Squared

I just spent 3 days with my wife in Brighton, UK - she spent most of her time shopping! mine was spent taking pictures using the GF1 and for 99% of the images, the fantastic 20mm lens.
We had a real mix of weather from fog, to rain and heavy winds that whipped up the sea with huge waves.
I have tried to capture an essence of the visit and Brighton as we love it and have deliberately shot using the square format only.
I hope all who view it, enjoy it and please feel free to write a comment.

Do not misunderstand me I think the GF1 is a lovely camera but I have to wonder. You have a Leica M8 with lenses and now you have another camera with two lenses. Having those two lenses doesn’t exactly make it a compact so I doubt you would carry the GF1 and the Leica on a day out? I also have my doubts about the GF1 and using MF focus Leica lenses on it. Using the rear LCD screen makes focusing a slow business and if you buy the optional finder then it is yet another piece of gear to carry. Of course I don’t mention the other factor (Important to me) and that is the cost of a GF1 20mm lens and kit lens. Is that a good buy as a pocket camera? It’s a good buy as a quality outfit but you already have one of the best quality outfits available. Puzzled!

Hi Ian, I too followed your link from the MU-43 website, I'm just wondering how you get such nice contrast on your pictures? Do you use filters, like a polarizer, or play with the exposure settings? Also is it possible to see some of your EXIF information on a few pics? I usually like to see how others take pictures so I too can try and emulate!

And awesome pictures, I love the Brighton gallery!

Ian, very well done!
I liked very much the atmosphere connecting all the pictures.
Also you did very very well with the square format ( I couldn't do it!)

Keep on sharing!
Thank you!

Some great photos there Ian, I like your use of the square format. I particularly like the two with figures on the beach and the one with the wave swelling and at the bottom of the frame.

When I found that my GF1 could crop to the square it was a real added bonus!
