I think Ian should show us (in full colour) just how grey you've got now.

Just printed both the mono and colour versions of these on A4 - modesty aside, they are superb prints and you would never have known these were ISO 1600s. The model is Rhian and I think she will be pleased with these when I give them to her later today

Re: An OM-D E-M5 portrait from Focus yesterday

Thee mono shots did nothing for me,probably due to the nature of the model's skin tones. As for the vignetting I really cannot see a great difference between the first two shots. Some shots do just not figure well given the mono treatment.

The third shot is for me. I am sure she will be very pleased with the result.

Ian took a picture of me as well. Hope he is not assembling a horror show. I got the impression that any forum members got snapped

Scary
