Available light portrait of my wife at her desk.

View attachment 307609
From 8+ years ago, using my first mirrorless ILC (Pen E-PL5) and the kit lens. One of several photos from that year which helped me decide that the smaller sensor could be more than good enough for my needs.
Good enough indeed, and then some. It is a very nice portrait.

Thank you, Larry! It probably helped that I recently reprocessed it using my current tools and workflow.
Reprocessing is OK. The file is just raw information we can handle it how we want. I reprocessed the shot of my mother from 2006 also. What I'd done to it in 2006 now seems to me unspeakably awful. I've gotten better in Photoshop, and probably my ideas of what I want have changed too.

And the RAW demosaicing algorithms have got much better. ISO 3200 shots from my E-1 which were unusable from Photoshop CS2 are usable with CS6, and very presentable using CC2019.

Taken a local Steampunk event at the end of May, I've been having a play and I can't decide if I prefer colour or B&W or popping the reflection in either colour in a B&W image or in B&W in a colour image... what do folks think, what's your preference?
