Malcolm, we realised after she had gone home that the flag was upside down (I blame my wife, that was her department!) - my daughter was in a state of distress as I made her go outside into the chilly damp air for the photos!!
The images were too sharp for what I wanted so I created 2 additional layers and blurred one using a setting of 12/darken/50 percent opacity and the other 20/lighten/50 percent opacity, I then merged those 2 together and created a layer mask before bringing back elements I wanted sharper. Finsihed by merging original with edited layer before adding border.
The original images needed just basics tone/contrast/col/levels/USM - the camera just shoots great images and very little editing is required unless they are too sharp (as in this case) and these were all shot at f4.
I have not really experimented much with people shots using the X100 but seeing the results from last night has convinced me I must do more and as Armanius says, the small size, silent ability is a real assett that is far from intimidating for the sitter.
