Thank you! I've been liking the standard color profile for JPEGs on the GX9 when I dial down the saturation a click or two. I wasn't sure whether I went too far with this one (-2). But I like it.
That is really nice...I must give that a try. I’ve been using the Scenery profile as it gives a bit more punch, but those muted tones are very pleasing.

My own m4/3 explorations have revealed that my Pen F is back-focusing when using a manual lens and focus peaking. Compare this to my Day 15 image. Focus peaking indicated the foreground nut was in focus, when the focal point is clearly between the two nut fragments. I've noticed several of my images this month have been out of focus, and I thought it was just my technique.

July 16, Outtake: the neighbor's old barn

My entry for today was a different, monochrome rendition of this same barn. Here is another color view of it.

The name of the street which I live on is Rapp Road - my house is the relatively ancient (1902) farmhouse built by an earlier generation of the same family - the Rapp's. Their original landholdings covered scores of acres, in what has now become the town proper. And this old barn was part of their holding - thus, it's the old 'Rapp' barn, on Rapp Road.
