I remember the b/w ballet girls; a lovely shot, regardless of camera. Whether it owes anything to an M8 is moot, but there's nothing there tone-wise the either of us couldn't have got with our D700 cameras. What ¡s remarkable is that the shot was made. That's why it's a good one: a good idea in a good location and a good opportunity caught.
Just be happy: it worked well!
Regarding the chat about cellphones: I think it's here on the (hopefully) more pro section of Lula because cameras affect all of us, and to close our eyes to what's going down does us no favours. Nope, I wouldn't use one on a job either, were such an unexpected thing to come my way again, but neither do I want not to know...
