    My favorite image thread on seriouscompacts and mu-43, so selfishly thought we could use on here. ;)

    Great idea!

    Here's a shot of a Historic Village I took in 2012 with a vintage Staeble Braun Ultralit 50mm f/2.8. I've got some other 'sepia potentials' to play around with later, once I get some time...

    Here is a shot from the other night, the lighting was horrible at the venue. I shot mostly in black and white, did not feel like fighting the harsh lighting.


    ISO was high, shutter speed too slow shot at f1.7

    Everything going wrong about this shot but I still like it.

    ^ I like it all, except perhaps for the T-shirts (towels?) hanging overhead - but even then it serves to outline your sister's backlit hair. I think the motion blur of her hands and guitar adds a lot to the dynamics. The high ISO's grain makes the pic look like it's been shot with film... gives it true grit! :)

    There's a bazzillion ways to emulate sepia. I thought I'd experiment on this one by adding a hint of copper (a duotone with two similar but different hues).

    Expecting a cease-and-desist-all-photography-in-this-state letter from the Minnesota State Tourism Board any day now...
