If it has not broken out, it is on the brink to be so between them. The shot of today was taken with the Cross Processing emulation of the GRD4. This mode is best for a more brightly lit scene. As in this underground station where the indoor lighting was mixed and dispersive, the final image seems to be veiled with a hazy layer and is not as punchy as desired.
Look at the sorrowful bloke, he had to be feeling punchy for the glowering stare of his girl friend. Poor guy.

The title is exactly what jumped to mind when I came across this scene. Such unexpected scenes are sure "preys" to the GRD IV as it is so suited to one-handed control that one never needs to stop for the snaps or worry about missing a shot -- well, at least after being familiar with its operations. And its AF is discernibly faster than the III.
In the customisable ADJ slots are what I think the most important functions for doing street shots, namely, ISO values, Image Mode, WB and Metering Mode. I very often toggle between them for tweaking when doing street shots on the go. An extra tip to "beautify" your shots is to use Cloudy for WB to give images a warm glow which will make people think that you're an early riser to do shots.

Sorry for disturbing your peaceful heart on Sunday.
Just because the price tag is stabbed in a hilarious way into the nostril of the barbequed pig head, doesn't mean that this is monkey business. The pig heads are used for paying tribute to the gods and goddesses in Chinese worship ceremonies. Why a pig head is used has several wherefores. One is that the pig head costs less than a much more expensive whole BBQ pig, while another is that the pig head, when flattened (some will flatten it for the ceremony), displays an auspicious smiling face. There are three indispensible offerings in such a ceremony: suckling pig, fish and hen.
