Wow! I made the featured list. And it came on a day when I despaired of ever taking another decent photo. Thank you! It was a real pick-me-up.In Laos again now, visiting adopted family. Five shots taken with the very capable little Leica D-lux type 109 (Leica naming conventions are nuts), one a shot across the Ou river taken from the balcony of a primitive little place we stayed in Muang Ngoi, and the other 4 from a trip to sites 1-3 of the Plain of Jars yesterday.. I've been many times now, and still find it fascinating. I brought the Leica 109 because I was bringing a laptop and a big Canon 80D with 18-135 lens as high school graduation gifts, I did not have space for my Pen-F and Olympus 12-40mm f2.8. I'm delighted with with the little Leica D-lux 109

Just to make it clear to everyone the camera was set to produce a standard colour output file, the black and white conversion was done in Silver Efex, the green foliage being lightened by the use of the green filter effect and adjustments made to shadows and highlight together with an adjustment of soft contrast to give a better spread to the mid tones. Unusually for me I worked that magic on the camera jpeg file rather than a jpeg produced from the raw file. However as you say Lawrence a "nice little shooter" or as I might say a little camera that punches above its weight.Nice shot. That little D-lux 109 is a nice little shooter, and I love the black and white that can come out of it..
