Thanks lads, much appreciated. Good to be back, Russ.
For the technically minded, the shot was taken with a friend's Fuji X100 - remarkable camera with extraordinary on-board flash capabilities for such a tiny unit and very high ISO performance as documented all over the place, but a son of a bitch at times handling-wise. On the strength of it, however, I've just taken the plunge and bought the new Fuji X Pro1 and its three lenses. Let's see how 'streetwise' it really is. I'll keep you posted - strictly street images for critique, nothing technical or more appropriate for cameras and equipment thread. unless asked, of course.
Regards to all,
