Post your out-takes, not-so-goods and also-rans here...
Well, my first idea for day 1 was to shoot one of my kids practising her cartwheels, this would give me an opportunity to have a go with the af tracking. Yes, I know it's already been mentioned thousands of times by people that m43 isn't the best for af tracking but what do these people know, I'll come to that conclusion when I've made up my own damn mind, right? Er, as you can see from these images, (and these were at 1/8000), the focus is not the best at the beginning of the sequence, then has completely deteriorated by the end. It looks like the rest of the world is right. Not to say that there are other ways of capturing this scene, but af doesn't seem to be the best way. Photos binned.
Almost went with this one. From TESB - but it seem too tongue in cheek...
I was strongly thinking this 'mad dentist' window shopping pic, but didn't, in the end.
And then these two B&W film simulations were thought also
Later that day:
Yesterday's outtake ...
... and today's:
Almost went with another dog image, but was saved when I discovered the wall of sound.
Two of today's outtakes:
Bill, there absolutely must be a story there . . .
SiJ 3 X10 shot - will be interesting to compare later with the BW shots from the Cosina C1

Day 4. Unfortunately she was on the phone.
This was considered, but rejected eventually

X10 Sample in colour
In many ways, I like this one better than the one I posted to the SiJ gallery - but it's a bit too experimental for me to feel totally comfortable with:
Reasonably happy with these shots from the X10 & quite likely will be better than the BW from the Cosina

The X10 is a really good camera for a challenge like this.
