    This 'Q' image took hours to process, due to hundreds of odd artifacts (scratches, holes, chips, discolorations) that add to the aesthetics of this historic church - the walls, doors etc., but which looked bad in the photograph, because the camera just doesn't resolve them correctly. Although the Q has tremendous 'latitude' as I call it in terms of changing color, contrast and other properties of the image (without creating new problems), the JPEG image does suffer from digital artifacting - most noticeable around the face.

    Leica Q, f1.7, 1/15 handheld, ISO 200.

    Not bad for a handheld 1/15 sec shot! Nice work on the processing too!

    Thanks - I wasn't even aware of the shutter speed at the time. But I should have, or maybe got a better focus on the face, but there was no time...
