K10D going strong

I have set out a special project, which is to try to take a portrait of each daughter (3) every day (or as close to every day as possible) and for this I use my old K10D and a SMC F 50 mm/1.7 set to jpeg and I also use a Yongnou YN560 manual flash, using the same-ish settings (depending on ambient light) every day (1/180th, full blast angled upwards/backwards, 100 ISO, f/5.6). No RAW, preferably no PP although some WB-work might be necessary occasionally. For this one, I just did the B/W conversion in-camera using the blue filter. It could benefit from a little more contrast but that wasn't an option with this kind of PP. The K10D suffers from back focus so to nail it to the eye I have to focus on the tip of the nose....

It feels good to put it to good use. It is always lying ready to go on the window sill. No excuses.
