I like bricks.
These are straight from the GR with just the default lightroom development. And cropped to square, of course.
The first photo is taken without flash under direct sun, while the second is using an off-camera flash for fill without changing the camera settings. The third is taken with the camera set to underexpose by about two stops and a bit of a boost to the flash power. This is so much easier with a compact camera than an SLR.
I like leaf shutters.
