In the beginning, my photographic direction was toward sharpness, perfect contrast control, etc. I have recently become open to more pictorial images. I am seriously overcome with that right now…exploring high ISO, noisy images that I have tried to avoid in the past. This one was made with my Lumix DMC-LX7 in extended ISO of 12800 in early evening light with a neutral density filter. I really like the effects that can be had this way even though the common wisdom is to avoid high ISO values. If you don’t like them, check back later…regular programming will resume shortly.
