It's not about pixel peeping!
Challenge series hosted by pocoloco. Challenges start on Tuesdays.
Photo's are not always about pixel perfectness. A little noise never hurt anyone. Some vignetting... Yes! Light leaks... fun! Photo's should capture an emotion, an atmosphere, a feeling... a photo should touch a nerve... The gear is not important... your eye is... any camera will do.
