The Lumix GF-1 is a great camera for taking out when you don't want to lug the rest of your gear around, but one of the things I keep forgetting to think about is the 4x3 aspect ratio. The reason I mention this is that I often compose the shot using the LCD then subsequently decide that the image would look much better cropped to 3x2. Often, this isn't an issue - I just need to crop off the top or bottom of the image - but this wouldn't have worked for this shot as I would have needed to lose some of the T-shirt. So, instead, I stretched the right-hand edge of the image.

In other news: I published our latest Critique Slot Screencast a few days ago. If you're interested, take a look at the following link.
