As more I use the X530, more I like it...

Hi Tony,

Feel free to play with any of the pictures I post ;)
One of the things I like most of the X530 is the way it generates the noise: It looks like film grain. I like your processing, I'm afraid that sharpening such a small image (400px) has put some artifacts (halo) around the shell that probably would'nt have appeared with a bigger image. If you want I can send you the original image (prior to resizing for uploading to the forum), to play with. Or maybe the halo was there and the B&W makes it more visible... ;).
