    Took the X100S into London today to give it its 4th or 5th last chance. I love this camera, but my PD Tremor makes it more difficult as time and PD marches on. However, at the moment I manage with good old "shutter mash".....as described by Rico) Doesn't give the camera a chance to do me out of a photo when I want one.

    This is cropped to give a more sinister effect than the original shot had.

    I call it "That Hitchcock Moment".

    Great catch Pete!

    I never understand why people wear these masks.

    I've only seen hospital theatre people wear them - is it common on the streets these days?

    I've developed mild palsy, and can almost never get a good free hand shot. I have to use some form of steady rest, or tripod, and 2 second timer. Works fine for static subjects, but not very well for "grab" shots. But we find a way, it we really want to! :smile:

    Great image. Great tones and contrast and a sense of light and dark. And a nice title, too.
