    Just a few with a cheapo compact and post processed to high contrast black and white.

    I greatly enjoy the first two shots and the last. However, the mask and broch do not do anything for me.
    It seems that the more depth you have, the better the pictures turn out.

    For the Flower broch, It is too white, not enough contrast perhaps. I would tune the darks and blacks. What happens if you solarize?

    The first two shots are really neat!

    I agree, and consider the first two to be the best of the bunch, and maybe the last one has a bit of merit. For me this was more of an exercise to find out the capabilities of an old compact, and I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of images it produced.

    yes, I did like the last shot, too.

    That old compact is doing it's job well. What is it?

    I recognize that camera! Used to have one, or at least one similar to it (can't remember the exact model now). It was a really good little camera.

    I love the composition of the first two, and the subject matter in the last certainly appeals to me. :)

    Here's a photo made with that 50mm Kowa in your photo :) one of the few lenses of this type, having a longer film-to-flange distance than Nikon's F-mount
