Agree about number 3 and curious to know more about the lighting.

The lighting was simply the sun; it happened to peek out of the clouds for about 10 minutes near the end of my afternoon there, just in time for me to catch it. The dramatic edge light falloff/vignetting and CA is due to the Holga lens; it's sort of a pinhole arrangement behind a cheap plastic 25mm optic. I could see the lens effect in the EVF as I was taking the shot, so I just composed it for maximum drama, as it were....Fortunately there is enough center sharpness with the lens that the focal point of the composition is not fuzzy, even though just about everything else is .

They are fun lenses to play with, and very cheap. You might want to try one if you like the effect.
