Some things in life are serendipitous pleasures.  While walking the "neighborhood", I inadvertently fired my shutter earlier than intended. Initially, I found this image just a snapshot, lacking anything I really wanted to capture and technically weak. The next shots were in fact, better timed. Yet, just playing with the image in post, this one yielded a far more effective photograph than I originally thought possible. I find that with the right tweaks, the M10 can create B&W with the same flavor as the M8 - which I always found to be superb even with its eccentricities.  M10 28 cron, heavily cropped and post processed in LR. The first image is the "flawed one"...just as shot. The second is the "salvage"... Valuable lesson learned as I start to understand more of the nuances of this camera.

And the final cropped version - which I think actually works. All comments welcome. Thank you.

I prefer the "salvaged image". Those two chimney pots add a subtle reinforcement of the two head shapes. You've inadvertently caught a really interesting couple of expressions here.


Cheers, Phil
