On the docks of Penetanguishine, Ontario.

The masts got very jagged with the upload shapening somehow, forgive me for that! :)

I thought, for just a moment, you'd been photographing near here .. but there are too many trees in the background!

Sometimes the site software does odd things, don't worry about it too much.

Had an idea, nothing to do with this picture, but I wondered if you'd seen the Oly EC-14 teleconverter. It's x1.4 magnification, fits in between the lens and the camera body. I don't know what price it would be for you, here it's silly expensive, but it's still cheaper than buying new long lenses.
Iain Myrans: Hi ellie,
The EC-14, i've heard, is very good. There is a downside with any teleconverter and that is that you'll typically loose about 2 stops of light using it. So if you have an f2 lens it's no big deal but if you're using an f3.5-5.6, when you add two stops to f5.6 you start to get pretty slow. It would work great in sunlight still but just be concious of it. I'd definitley test it out. What i've heard about it though is very favourable. Lots of people shooting the 50-200mm f2.8 Digital Zuiko lens love it since it extends that reach so much farther. Remember a 1.4x teleconverter has quite a bit more range on the oly than on a 35mm too so it's quite a bargain if you can deal with the slower shooting speeds!
