I recently discovered the work of the great Yousef Karsh and this particular quote immediately struck my attention.
Compromise sometimes must be the stuff of which pictures are made
Wise words indeed. When you think about it further this is so true. If not the focal length you have, its the iso performance of your camera, if not, then the way it handles, and so forth. Luckily, with the K5 IIS very few compromises come to mind. The set below was processed with a few forked versions of the presets from Really Nice Images which I highly recommend.

Great quote – terrific frames especially like the heart and the fence….
Brilliant stuff, Jorge! Have you tried out Really Nice Images’ Instagram presets for LR? They look like nice at their site.
Thanks Jonne, yes they are quite nice, I’ll be trying those out as well soon. Keep up the good work in your site.
Amazing mood and images.
Takes me back to old-good-analog times.
Indeed, its that subtle look that we miss. Thanks for chiming in.
That last shot of the corner of the fence is powerful. Love that quote, very true, and not just about photography.
Thanks Ed, it was so hot that day but I just the opportunity for a frame and I took it. I may process it in color coming soon. Cheers.
