    Here are a couple of shots with the EP2 art filter. Really, only just experimenting with the camera functions.

    1st and last work really well, they look like they were taken in 60's. The 1st is especially good!

    Kinda funny, but this is one of the things I have always found appealing about Pentax DSLRs - their high ISO NR has always been tuned to get rid of chroma noise but allow luminance noise (which has a nice side effect of retaining more detail) - when you convert their jpegs to black and white, it looks like film grain, rather than the blotchy mess chroma noise comes off as looking.

    the grain works best in the 3rd shot above!

    Well, I really like your 2nd rendition above best... love the figure on the bench silhouette.

    Thanks for sharing
