Interesting shot! And welcome to MFT, Brian.

This is good shot and well exposed in difficult conditions. The expression is well captured and fits the mood perfectly. Initially I found the background a little distracting, but then it gew on me as it filles in the details of the setting. Perhaps it would work a little better if you toned down the brighter areas to concentrate attention on the main subject.

You have made a valiant attempt at hand holdong your E-500 at a low shuter speed, and it almost worked, although the image is a little soft and would be a little sharper with a fasetr speed. Generally for four thirds it is recommended not to use slower shutter speeds than half the reciprocal of the focul length (1/28th in this case) to avoid noticable camera movement during the exposure.

A couple of points on MFT presentation:

It is best to keep the horizontal dimension below 1000 pixels to avoid having to scroll, similarly around 700 is the ideal maximum for vertical images.

Try to be acurate with the data panel (you selected 40 - 150 mm lens, but stated 14nn focul length used).

I hope these comments are helpful, as they are intended to be.

An expression

is worth a thousand words. Adolescence!

I love the world going on behind her.

Congratulations on the hand holding.
