Before Daylight

Before Daylight

I had just awakened and was bleary-eyed as I fed the animals. This image said "Take a picture" and so I did after I set the LX3 for incandescent light. In order not to blow out the detail in the lampshade, I had to underexpose quite a bit, and as a result suffered a bit of noise, especially viewable in the leather furniture. I used a bit of Noise Ninja on it, but the color blotches were still there. So be it. Added a touch of soft focus with Harald Heim's FocalBlade plug-in, which I dearly love. (Processed from the jpg image, which I often like more than working from RAW with this camera.)

Gorgeous mellow and homey light. I got a panasonic too as a carry-around. Very light.

That LX3 sure does take wonderful pics. Leo the Tech Guy always recommends it when someone asks what a good camera in that price range is.
