On photo art appreciation in the Candid shots challenge (4 comments in total)
In reply to:

RuthC: This is a beautiful image, but it is NOT a candid, unposed shot, IMO.

Not sure what you mean. I was some distance away with my wife and a tour group and was looking around the room. The woman and child were not in this position when I took my camera out and I simply took a "grab shot". I didn't even know what I had captured until later in the day. Do you have some other requirement for candid and unposed? Thank you for your remarks.

upuaut: Excellent exposure of subjects. Beautiful black rendition.

Thank you for looking, and for your comments. I have experimented with low-key lighting a number of times and this is one of my favorites. Just fortunate that the challenge was a good topic for me.

It may not be art, but it's clever and shows a lot of humor in the details. I think of it like a multi-track audio recording where one individual may play several instruments -- we've listened to that for years, usually with admiration. This is the photographic version!

SeeRoy: "The P7100's optical viewfinder coverage is roughly 80%."
80% - Roughly.
Ie A completely useless peep-hole - roughly speaking.

I plan to use the camera with the 1:1 aspect option, so the width of the OVF is probably just right for framing. I'm especially pleased to be able to have a usable viewfinder in bright sunlight -- otherwise these cameras truly are just point and shoot.
