(Please) let me know what you think about these pics. Both were taken with the Oly Pen E-PL1 & the Panasonic 14-45mm lens, Oly EP-01 housing with stock flat port and duel S&S YS-01 strobes.

1st time with this set-up so I was just trying to work through the controls and settings. Not really focusing on composition so much but any and all critique is welcome.

Thank you

(Photos were shot in RAW, imported into Lightroom 3, converted to DNG for basic preset correction and then to JPEG for export)

Hi there - is your monitor calibrated ? I like the pictures but I think they both need a little boost in terms of brightness and contrast !

Take care.

When you converted them did you switch from Adobe 1998 to sRGB? They look a little dark to me also. They lack POP! What lens and strobes are you using?

I'd like to know how you are controlling your strobes - are you using them on auto/TTL or manual? I have the same camera with the Olympus strobe and am having a lot of trouble with the auto/TTL settings
