The best camera (RX100) the one you have with you. So I bought a RX100. Not that the OM-D E-M5 is huge, but is big enough that I don't carry it everywhere.

Anyway, the “best camera is the one you have with you” meme proved true this week. Here in northern California, the sky is usually clear blue from horizon to horizon. (Or occasionally gray horizon to horizon, like now.) Very nice, but boring in photos. This week I arrived at my place of work to the sky you see below.

I had pictured the scene in black & white. Conversion done in Silver Efex Pro, with heavy use of the red filter.

Ordinarily I wouldn’t have had a camera with me and therefore wouldn’t have this shot.

Which do you prefer? Is the B&W over-processed?

(Edited to add - I just noticed from the EXIF that I have the wrong month set in the camera - it was actually taken on Nov 15.)
